Life Out Here

Just a small way to keep my friends and family, who are strewn about the country, in The Know about my life in Seattle.

So, nothing too exciting has been going on this week except I'm stressing about a Halloween costume. Normally I wouldn't bother because we don't go to parties anyway, but this year the clinic will have little trick-r-treaters roaming the halls and I, being the lover of children that I am, was nominated to be the host for our floor. I can fake it for an hour. Since I'm hosting, I feel like I need to dress up. But being a clinic, the costumes are a bit limited - no death, violent or gory costumes and no raunchy themes (like my last costume - a Bloody Mary). What's a girl supposed to do? So I came up with dressing like a mermaid....then getting a big pillow with white packing peanuts glued to it and strapping it on back with a piece of green felt.

Great idea, right?!

However, I have no clue how to make the fishy skirt. Sewing stresses me out. I have a long sleeved, nude colored thin top and I was going to get a long, blond wig that came down and covered my chest. But that skirt....

So maybe I'll be a flapper now, if I can find a cheap dress. I have the shoes, pearls and fishnets. And that's not too risky, right? Or I may just wear my black leather pants and an orange sweater and call it festive.

In other news, Steve and I bought plane tickets to Houston for Christmas. We'll be in Friday, the 23rd through Wednesday, the 28th. It was the most stressful process. Between trying to find tickets that weren't $500 and working the time off with my boss, I was ready to trash the whole idea. Ah, but the the joy in my mama's voice when making holiday plans. How could I deny her the beauty of Christmas with her baby girl?
