forget me nots

halloween weekend and pictures

Halloween Steve and I went over Robin's to finish up the Halloween costumes. I think they turned out well... his better than mine though because we ended up putting lots more itme into it... We went over Aubrey's to get ready and then two Angie's came over (only one of which I knew) and we all went out but separated for a while... Steve and I ended up in Old Town where I got ahold of Matt and he came down to hang out... Aubrey and Angie showed up later and it was all just fun and I got quite drunk.
took some pictures throughout the night, though I wish I had taken more... some of them didn't turn out well either... so there isnt a picture of Steve and I together...

I had to call my grandma to get matt's number and she said "you want to talk to *Matt*???" and "Won't Steve mind??"
heh
shes amusing sometimes...

Saturday I pretty much spent feeling nauseated any time I moved so I tried to keep it to a minimum, only being somewhat successful and not completely manageing to avoid throwing up.
but Steve was nice and sweet and brought me ginger ale and baby goldfish crackers and cute clearance halloween stuff from Meijer before he left to go to the reception... I can't say that I'm terribly sad about missing it. and I think it was the last one. so big yay to that. I spent the afternoon/evening sleeping, watched Reservoir Dogs, read things online, and talked to a few people...
altogether not a bad way to spend an evening. except for the nausea part... ah well. thats what I get.

Sunday we slept in, went grocery shopping, rented a movie and I started making a couple fleece blankets... theyre mostly finished... I just need to make the edges a little prettier looking...
forget me nots

work @ transitions and shopping

worked today and I'll be back to the same place tomorrow and wednesday too... good to know where I'm going so I can be ready... and its at the transitions center for the post secondary side again. yay to that. involves me visiting a lot of classrooms. and... thats pretty much it. so yay to that. and if I work at all the other two days it might almost make up for last week...

I actually maaged to get there a couple minutes early today too. rather than just at 8. one of these times I'll manage to time it all better and not feel rushed... I spent around 5 minutes in each classroom... sometimes more like 10 in a few... so as soon as I was in a class I was out again... especially after they gave me the updated class lists and asked me to verify them with the assistant teachers... tomorrow and the next day will be a little different... i think I'll end up in only 2 or 3 classes each class period... still. not too terrible... its just so interesting that they run it the way they do... with the assistants doing the classroom teaching and the teachers running things from elsewhere, making the lesson plans and making rounds for any special needs and to make sure things are going smoothly... which makes it hard to really make a plan for a sub since there isn't too much to be subbing for...

after school I went to Old navy and probably pretty much spent the money I made today... but I got more pants so I should be able to avoid running around naked for a while longer... yay to that with it being so damn cold lately...
