October is my favorite month of the year. It always seems to be a busy, fun month and the fact that it also happens to be my birthday month and Halloween is a bonus. Obviously, since I live in Miami, I can’t enjoy the leaves changing because unfortunately, they stay green all year round. I miss that the most.
The weather doesn’t get any cooler, at least not until late November or December and that’s if we are fortunate enough to get some type of cold front. Oh, and by cold front, I mean the temperature will be in the 60’s or even 50’s if we’re lucky. Regardless, I love October because there are still a few things I can enjoy:
Dark colors on my nails.
The munchkin playing dress up… arrgh!
Trick or treating with my munchkin and my nephew.
So whatever your favorite things of the season happen to be enjoy them and here’s hoping for a cool and sweet October!
Today the hubby and I are celebrating our 8 year anniversary. By celebrating, I mean we said Happy anniversary, I love you and all that jazz. We are not big on celebrating anniversaries. Not every year any way and that is okay with me. I think we have been through so much in the last 8 years, that when I think about it, the fact that we are together, in love and more committed than ever is a blessing and that is more than enough for me.
Today I am thankful for a husband that loves me, he is my best friend and I am truly blessed to have him. I know not to many people get to say that… I’m one of the lucky ones.
I’m not going to lie, its been tough. There has been times were I thought we weren’t going to make it. But I’m now a true believer that with God and love anything is possible. As long as both people are committed to make it work and they love each other.. it is possible.
This will probably be the one and only post I write on the subject. I think politics is like religion, they are both very personal and very passionate subjects. People usually have good reasons or experiences that are the foundation to their believes and they should be respected.
Sometime last week or the week before, the election topic came up at the office. I’m one of those people who believe that there are certain things you shouldn’t talk about in the office. Politics being one of them. I personally don’t talk about politics, I may say a comment here and there, but I really don’t like to talk about it. So, the topic came up. I should mention that this person, is very open about who she/he is voting for and has made the point of stating why. That is okay with me. If you feel comfortable speaking about a particular subject, go right ahead, knock your self out. But then, here came the insults.
This person started saying that whoever votes for “X” candidate is an idiot and shouldn’t be allowed to vote. I felt very unconformable and offended. Who the hell are you to tell me ( and this person was talking to everybody not just me) who I should or shouldn’t vote for? who died and made you the expert? I was pissed. I didn’t say anything. I stayed quiet. If you know me personally, you would know this was hard for me to do. I’m all for expressing yourself and freedom of speech and all of that, but at the office? really? I just didn’t think it was appropriate. There is a time and place for everything and the office is not one of them.
Everyone should vote for whomever they want. Make an educated decision. Period. And please keep politics out of the work place. It’s just not appropriate… at least that’s what I think.
Share your thoughts, should politics be talked about in the work place?
I realized today that I haven’t posted anything on the blog in almost 2 weeks… YIKES!! My bad. Horrible I know. Well what’s being going on? Well lets see, the munchkin started school. He is doing well.. so far. Granted, he is only in Pre- K, but this is all in preparation for next year, next year is Kindergarten and everyone knows its all down hill from there… I’m not ready for that topic.. lets move on..
Oh we had a tropical storm, Isaac, if you could even call it that. To us it was just another rainy weekend in Miami. We were lucky. Again. I’m sorry for the people that weren’t so lucky 😦
Work is work. We are very busy and I like it that way. I am thankful for my job, especially during these tough times. We are busy, I am working and I am thankful.
Labor day weekend was fun. We had a birthday party and the munchkin had a blast. I had fun too, catching up with friends. I don’t get to do that much, so when I do, I enjoy it as much as possible. We also went to a BBQ with some of my hubby’s friends. Great food, great drinks and great weather ( for the most part) it rained for a bit, but once it cleared it was pool time. Good times.
This weekend has been about cleaning and organizing. I tend to do that right before Fall. I can never get around to do it during Spring. So good bye Summer, its been real. I’m looking forward to the light breeze, the not so hot temperatures and if we are lucky maybe a cold front or two… a girl can dream right?
I love them and its not what you think. You’re probably thinking ” oh she’s a football fan” and you couldn’t be further from the truth. I’m all about basketball, the NBA baby. My team being the HEAT, but I digress…
My reason for loving Monday nights have nothing to do with football. Nothing at all. Do you want to know why I love Monday nights? Ready? Here it goes…. I get to be by myself. Yup, you read that right. I get to be by myself. To do whatever the hell I want.
Please don’t get the wrong idea, I love my husband, I love my son, but mommy needs a break once in awhile, to do whatever it is that I want to do. In this case, I’m updating the blog while watching Lifetime. I could never do this if I had hubby here and the munchkin awake. I mean, I could, but it probably wouldn’t be this quiet and sometimes I need quiet.
I would feel guilty. I don’t like to do things for me when my son is awake or when the hubby is here. I mean, lets face it, working a full time job and getting home at 7 o’clock at night every night makes our time during the week limited, so this is why I take full advantage when I get a few hours to myself and lets not kid ourselves here, hubby needs a break too. Its a win- win situation.
So, while the hubby is at his friend’s house watching the game and doing whatever it is that man do. I’ll be here watching my Lifetime and enjoying my little “me” time in peace.
