Fright(less) Fest and chili

Sunday I slept in and then headed over to Nellie's to hang out and eat some chili.  The food was yummy and the company even better.  Vanessa is now home (she wasn't supposed to be until after Nov. 2 - long story) so we got to hear about her work stuff (ie why she was home) and had a good time playing with Nellie's 2 little girls ages 4 and 2.

After leaving there, I headed to Six Flags for Fright Fest with Cyndi, Aimee and Andy.  I have to say I was a bit disappointed with the Fright portion of the evening.  Stuff was decorated, but there wasn't creepy music playing and hardly anyone was walking around in masks/costumes.  It was remarkably not scary.  But I love roller coasters so all was not lost as that's what we did all evening.  We were going to go on the haunted train ride too, but the line was really long and it was lightening like it was going to pour rain.  When it starts to lightening, they shut down most of the rides so we decided that we would just head home and avoid getting soaked.  It turned out to be a good choice because a few minutes after we left it started raining pretty hard.  Maybe next year we'll get to ride the train.

Today I am off work (yay 4 day weekend!) and am going to be doing some laundry and cleaning the bathroom. I'd be more upset about it if I hadn't been off for the last 3 days having fun.  I could get used to this not working Mondays thing...
