1// I love the presidential debates. I'm a political loving person so these things excite me. I love hearing analyst discuss afterwards as well. The political science behind it all is what I really love.
2// I'm having the best time putting together Jack's Halloween costume. I'm not going to reveal just yet but I hope it all comes together and looks as cute as I think it will.
3// Teen Mom OG is my guilty pleasure. Farrah is the rudest person I've ever seen. You can tell that she is like that in person. I don't see how her parents let her speak to them that way. She is setting it up so her daughter is going to treat her the same way she treats her mom and it serves her right. I think Maci is the best mom on the show and I adore Ryan's parents.
4// I've learned that I drink my calories. I'm in love with the PSL at McDonalds and I love having a large Dr. Pepper to drink on during the day and then crunch on the ice. I want the PSL before work, the Dr. Pepper during my workday, and then another on my ride home from work. Even before I make it to my PSL I have a coffee from home. Once I get home from work I'm good with drinking water but something in me wants that caffeine or taste or both during my day. I need a different alternative. I do not do diet drinks. I've never liked the taste.
5// Sometimes I stay up super late, like at least one or two nights a week, just so I can have a little alone time. I always pay for it the next day but I really need my quiet time.
6// My new favorite show is Designated Survivor.
7// I really want to like the big hit show This Is Us but I can't really get into it. I've never been a fan of going back and forth. The overweight woman meeting this great man (even though I find him annoying) at her first meeting is just so unrealistic and reminds me too much of the Mike and Molly storyline.
8// I am looking into Jack taking horse riding lessons. Someone gave me a name of a man who is out of town but not too far that does them. I'm going to contact him soon and see if I can set that up.
9// I"m also thinking about getting Jack a beagle for Christmas. I never thought I would want another dog. It isn't that I don't love dogs, I do, but they are hard work. I've done some research and I think a beagle would be suitable for Jack. I really want Jack to have that one childhood dog that is his best buddy.
10// It's time for me to get my hair done again and I plan to get it done before I head to Fayetteville in November.
11// Weight Watchers is not going well. I'm broke right now which makes it hard to eat healthy.
12// Jack got accepted into the ABC program. He will be attending a different school under the same director of the preschool he goes to now. I'm nervous though. It is going to be in a different building across town, a different schedule, different teachers, and this mama is nervous. The big positive is that it is free! Him being in this program will save me $400 a month.
13// Yesterday I ordered myself a Hello Life planner. I also ordered the stickers and the extra notepad and graph paper. I hope for Christmas I get the carrying case and other accessories. I was going to start working on my Christmas planner but decided to get this instead and order the extra paper so I can add in to put my Christmas plans on and then add into the planner. I needed a planner where I could be detailed but also a place to write down big ideas to work from. I'll let y'all know how I like it.
14// Mother Nature has betrayed me. It has been in the 90's and will be until Thursday. Jack has cute long sleeve Halloween shirts that I wish he could wear. My plan is to put one on him each cooler day because around here it might be chilly one day and then hot the next. I shouldn't have waited so long to put his Halloween shirts on him. Plus, boo to the heat. I'm a gal who loves the 70 degree weather.
15// I've been in a reading rut and I'm looking forward to some books I have on hold to become available. I'm always the one who either gobbles up books or reads next to nothing. Once I get back into a reading groove I will read book after book and then my reading halts.
Do you have any confessions you would like to share today?
