It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!

Happy rainy Tuesday! It’s been pouring cats and dogs all morning. I had to drive extra slow this morning to avoid floating off the flooded streets. What a great start to the day, right?! šŸ˜›

I’m not scheduled to run today, but Nick and I had a fairly big dinner last night and were lazy around the house. So I thought I should get up and at least do a couple miles to jump start my metabolism today. When I woke up at 5:30, I heard rain hitting the roof and the lightning and thunder were booming….great. But I was already awake and knew my brain wouldn’t be able to shut back off for an hour, so I got up to watch some TV with Mac and have some coffee and cereal before my day had to start.

charbrownTV at 5:30 am isn’t too exciting, and I was feeling festive. So I popped in this DVD to watch an old favorite!

Since I was half asleep this morning, I’ll probably have to rewatch the Halloween one on Thursday night while we pass out candy. It only seems fitting. šŸ™‚

LINUS AND SALLY MISTAKE SNOOPY FOR THE GREAT PUMPKINThis is my favorite scene where Snoopy pops up in the pumpkin patch pretending to be the Great Pumpkin. Nothing takes me back to my childhood more than these old classics. Guess I’m feeling a nostalgic today. šŸ™‚

Breakfast + Bday Week

Breakfast today was eaten at my desk like normal. But what wasn’t normal was the overabundance of coffee that I brought with me!

I also remembered to bring a Groupon Goods purchase with me. I tried out some jeans, and sadly they were about 3 sizes too small! So Groupon shall be getting them back shortly.

So this morning, between the rain and not being able to get in a little run like I wanted, I was a little cranky by the time I got to work. I really don’t like when mornings don’t go my way! But I started thinking…

  • It’s the week of Halloween
  • It’s my birthday week
  • I have off work on Friday for my birthday
  • My mom and I are getting together on Friday
  • We’re going to see White Christmas on Saturday!

So why am I cranky again? Oh that’s right….I have NO reason to be cranky or down. It’s my birthday week, and nothing is going to bring me down!

The rest of today will consist of work and 2 Jazzercise classes, so it’ll be a busy one. At least my workout tonight is indoors since I don’t see this rain letting up anytime soon. I’ll see you all later – have a great day!
