Tricked Out

Well tonight was pretty much a bust...I had FIVE ..yes FIVE Tricksters come a knocking....I am sooooo glad that I bought over 120 Candy Bars to give out tonight....sheesh I only have about 100 left...THAT is not a good thing for a pre-menstrual , lonely, woman! I've already had a $100 Grand, and a Nestle Crunch and I'm working my way thru a Kit Kat........I think I'll bring a bunch to Church Sunday to hand out to all the CCD classes....and of course make some Goody Bags to Bring to my girls next weekend when I go up to Tech for Drama Teens first Gymnastics Meet(JMU is competing against Tech).

I think I'll go call the Commander now...maybe he can console me.....LOL

Trick or Treat

Are you ready?! Not too much longer and there should be little ghosts and ghoulies, ballerinas and princesses, pirates and superheroes knock, knock, knocking at my door. I'm ready for them...I have about 120 fullsize candy bars waiting in my ghoulie bowl( be honest there's only about 50 or so actually IN the bowl right now..)I don't know WHAT I was thinking, as I'll be lucky if I get even 40 Trick or Treaters...but then again you never know..some years we have tons and then some years we have no one. I guess I can just save the leftovers for goodie bags for my girls when I see them next week, and/or stocking stuffers at Christmas..that is if I haven't eaten them all up by then..LOL
My hat is waiting for me in the hall....
And now I'm ready ........Let the Games Begin!!
(P.S. My shirt lights up when I cool is that??!!)

Have a great Halloween everyone!!

Gotta love it when you feel like you're being screwed over by your own insurance company! I had my assessment today for the damage to my truck. MY company will not give me the full price to repair my bumper because my bumper had some rust and they can't pay me for a 'new' bumper....but........there are no 'used' bumpers available so I will probably have to have a NEW one put like I might have to pay $188 out of pocket to repair my truck. This is for damage that I did not do...that I did not cause. I don't see why 'I" should have to pay for that. I would gladly accept a used bumper if one was is not MY fault one is not. I guess it's called a 'betterment'...they can't repair my vehicle to 'better" than it was before...I think that's crap.

At this point the other insurance company is not even ready to accept liability for my damage because they say the 2nd car hit me before the 3rd car hit him and pushed him into it will be a while before someone takes responsibility for my damage. Now 'maybe" the responsible party will be willing to do the 'right' thing and pay for ALL my damages....but probably not if they don't 'have' to. So I'm probably screwed out of $188.00. Thing is I could have walked in today claiming back pain or neck pain and probably had hundreds thrown at me...but.....I am a person of integrity and character so of course I wouldn't do that....all I want is my truck fixed. I'm not out to get EVERYTHING I CAN......just what I 'need'.

I'm starting to think I am not in such 'good hands" afterall.......

The After

Oh My Gosh! I LOVE my new cut and color!!!!!!

What fun today was!!! I dropped by the salon at about 1:00pm and was there until 4:00. Most of the time was spent coloring my hair. It was given an overall color of Chocolate Brown with some Reddish lowlights and some Caramel highlights. Then she took off about 3 inches and layered the ends and gave me wispy side swipe bangs. It's very similar to the cut I got at New Years(which is the LAST time I got my hair cut...I'm horrible about getting my hair cut)but the color makes it sooo much cuter!!!! I absolutely love it. I got the 'Church" rate, which is nearly half the normal rate, so I am totally a Happy Camper...LOL

Busy Sunday

Yesterday turned out to be a really nice day. I got up early for Church. Choir was 'interesting" as our Organist was not there nor was a Choir Director. With the CDR also gone, and the Drama Teen away at college that left me and two other members, none of which is a good leader..LOL. One can sortof of play guitar which is better than nothing. We pulled thru though and didn't do TOO badly....

Afterwards we had our Fall Football Friendsy Picnic. It was fun and there was plenty of food. Everyone wore their favorite team Jersey or other article of clothing. I wore a VA Tech Jersey. It's all I could find here, and since Co-ed is at Tech it works.

We had three bicyclists stop by... they thought we were having a fundraiser selling food, so they stopped by to see if they could buy a meal...we explained that we were having a Church Picnic but they were welcomed to stay and eat. They took us up on the offer. Turns out they were traveling from Pittsburg to Florida by bike, camping along the way. They were actually from Canada and had driven to Pittsburg and then started from there on their bikes. It was really great talking with them, and I think they really enjoyed the meal.

Then I went shopping with one of my friends from Church..She knew I was feeling pretty lonely and would be going home to an empty house so invited me to come along with her. It was really fun shopping with a's been awhile since I've done that. I bought a cute sweater at Penny's but other wise was a good girl and didn't spend much...LOL

Then on the way home I noticed one of the neighbors had their yard set up for a Hay Ride Party. I had known there was such a party planned for the neighborhood but didn't realize when it was going to be. I checked CDR's e-mail and sure enough it was planned for last night so I stopped over and had a lovely evening hanging out and chatting with the neighbors.

Now I'm on my way out the door to FINALLY get my hair cut( and who knows maybe I'll get some other 'fun' stuff done to it) A friend is going to be doing it . She owns a Salon. Here is my 'before' pic.. my hair is still slightly damp from washing it this morning so it's not the 'full' picture of what my hair looks like now. I'll probably have her cut off a good 3 or 4 inches.
