I hope everybody had a good Halloween! Mine was very low key, with a last minute get together with friends to celebrate passing that test. We went to a schmancy bar with amazing happy hour specials ($3 drinks and appetizers!), right on our town’s Main St, where we watched kids parade around in costume. I managed to throw together a costume myself from my own closet: blue button down with rolled up sleeves, red and white bandana and a swipe of red lipstick for Rosie the Riveter. Sadly, I didn’t take any pictures, but it was fun.
Buy Christmas ticket home without dipping into savings Oops! Forgot to do this. Doing it right now, so maybe it counts.
Updated: So immediately after I wrote this post, I bought the tickets for $100 less than I’ve been paying for the past few years, with fewer layovers and all aisle seats! I’m happy. Now to book a pet-sitter or kennel.
