Tonight we got to go to Conway and celebrate Halloween with Colby & Katie and Celeste & Joe. We got together and ate chili and dirt cake at Katie & Colby's, which Katie had decorated all cute for Halloween. We just hung out and talked for a while. Katie had snuck some gummy eyeballs into the dirt cake, which the boys really enjoyed playing with. After eating, we went over to Katie's parents to watch them hand out candy - although that may not sound that exciting, it really was. They had set up a scary little scene and were all dressed up wearing some really freaky masks. It was hilarious to watch the kids muster up their courage to go get some candy. They all had different reactions, and some were really funny. One kid walked away saying, "Wow, that was AWESOME!" It was hilarious. We played a little Rock Band on the Wii inside, which was a new experience for me. It was pretty fun. By this time it was around 10:00 and I was already exhausted, so we just went home. It is nice to have friends close to hang out with, even though we live a little farther away from each other now.

Sometimes I don't know how I can be as dumb as I am. Today I was not having the best day, so I decided to go get a shake from Sonic on my way home from work. It was just a normal trip to Sonic. They brought me my shake and straw. I removed the paper wrapper from the straw and then somehow (while holding it in my right hand and doing something else with my left hand) hit my left hand into my right hand and ended up with a straw shoved into the back of my throat - not pleasant. It is very painful and red, and I feel like a complete moron.

Well, I can't say this weekend has been miserable, because I was able to read a really good book and do a few other things, but I've been trying to stay off of my foot and I just didn't realize what it is like to be lying down all the time (not really, but it feels like it) in order to keep my foot elevated as much as possible. The worst part is that, after making the effort to stay off of my foot all of Friday and Saturday, I had the worst night yet on Saturday night. I was absolutely going crazy. Sunday wasn't much better, but by Sunday night somehow things had lightened up a lot. I hope that's the end of it, because I am planning to go back to work tomorrow. It's my last week of work in Searcy, and I think I should probably be there.

Well, I feel pretty dumb about now. My left leg has been hurting pretty badly for about a week now, making it difficult for me to get to sleep. I finally decided (after talking to a friend of mine who is a physical therapist) to go have it x-rayed today. All in all, the doctor's visit was not a very pleasant experience. I found out I have a stress fracture in my foot, which is what I had begun to suspect. They gave me this tiny boot and two prescriptions, but no real information or suggestions. I finished work today, assuming that the boot would take the pressure off of my fracture and it wouldn't hurt as bad as it has been. Wrong! It hurt as bad today or worse than it has been! I guess I'll be staying home tomorrow and the rest of the weekend to try to let it have a break. (Oh gosh, that really wasn't supposed to be funny.) If anyone really read this, I would probably change it, but, for now at least, this is more for my benefit than anyone elses. I'm pretty sure this dumb thing was caused from David and my inspiration to start running again - and hoping to train for a half marathon. I stopped running a few weeks ago because my leg was starting to hurt a little. I am just wondering why it waited until last week to start hurting . . . . ?

I love the weekends (and anytime really) in autumn. Lately the weather has been so nice! I love being outside, although I still don't go out enough. Yesterday we went to the high school football game - our team lost, but it was fun anyway. David watched his students play and cheerlead and such, and we also watched my brothers in the band. We got to sleep in this morning and just hang out around the house. Then we went and helped with the youth Super Saturday hayride at Mom & Dad's. We had chili and roasted marshmallows and drank hot chocolate - all of the wonderful things about the fall and cool weather. We also had roasted pumpkins seeds leftover from everyone making Jack-O-Lanterns. I don't know if I've had them before, but I actually like them. It also reminded me that we should carve a pumpkin soon. I had a lot of fun talking to people and trying to scare the kids on the hayride (I think I scared myself more than them). I caught a few pieces of the Razorback game whenever I could - It was going so well, then they lost right at the end :( But UCA won, so that's good at least. I guess everything can't be perfect - just nearly.

Well, I was able to get the results for my OT exam today, and I passed! Everyone I tell this to does not seem to be impressed and says they knew I would pass it. Which, I guess makes me feel good? I don't know. But I was honestly pretty worried. I mean, I feel like I know what I'm doing and that I learned what I was supposed to in school, but I just felt like the test wasn't testing the things I knew, so I wasn't sure how it would turn out. Anyway, it doesn't matter now, I passed! I'm finally a real OT with nothing left to worry about! Yay!

Tonight we went to UCA's Homecoming game with Dave's family. It was awesome. It just makes me remember how very much I love football and fall in general. I love the cool weather and the atmosphere of a packed stadium and a good game. It is so much fun. I haven't been getting to watch near enough football this season, so hopefully I can watch several more games before it's all over again.
Last night we finally got to go see Celeste & Joe's new apartment. It is so cute! Celeste is so good at organizing and decorating. Katie & Colby met us down there and we all went out to eat pizza downtown, then came back to Celeste & Joe's to just hang out together (till 1 in the morning). It was so much fun to see everyone again. It's been way too long. (I wish I could post pictures, but I didn't bring my camera! What a loser!) I can't believe we all live in different towns now, and Katie & Colby are going to have a baby. Life is starting to change so much for everyone. It's exciting and scary. I'm glad we're all close enough to hang out still. We'll enjoy it while it lasts.

Well, I don't know if I really want to keep a blog as much as I'm sick of using other people's blog lists to stalk everyone. I really just needed one place to go that would link to all my friends' blogs so I could read them more easily. I know, that's a pretty ridiculous reason for starting your own blog, but it's the best one I've got. Maybe I'll end up posting some stuff on here while I'm at it . . .
