Oh My! Now it’s October…

Just got back from a short trip to visit the mom-in-law in Oregon. Truly blessed to have longevity at least in the women of our families. Hubby’s mom is 96 and mine is 98! Both have their medical issues but are still getting up every morning. Flying is always fun and it was nice to be able to spend a few days just sitting and doing pretty much nothing but talking and watching TV. Well, the watching TV part was kinda hard for me because you know I can’t just sit still for that but I had some magazines to skim through and a book to read. Still, I think mom enjoyed having the company. We don’t get up there very often.

We did just recently get a United Mileage Plus credit card (don’t ask me why we didn’t do it sooner) and that entitled us to a once a year pass into the United Club. That was pretty cool. Also, while it was pretty chilly in Oregon and it did rain a bit, back home there was a torrential downpour with streets flooding and cars getting stuck. Poor Benny didn’t even want to go out in the rain to go potty! Always fun to see the clouds from the plane.

Now it is time to get to work in the Etsy shop getting ready for the upcoming holiday boutiques. I did get this kind review from someone who bought 10 (!) cards recently.

I’m going to attempt the Ultimate Blog Challenge next month so hope you don’t mind hearing from me a little more often than I have been. I’m going to try drafting some posts in advance and see if that makes it easier. Halloween is coming. Are you ready? We haven’t gotten candy yet and I don’t decorate since the kids are all grown and I don’t like dusting – LOL.

    Great to hear that your Mom and MIL are doing reasonably well considering their age!
    I don’t like dusting either – which makes me the perfect Halloween decorator. Cob Webs for the win, hahaha!
    Just looked up the Ultimate Blog Challenge and signed up. That was most probably careless of me. I understand you’ll get the daily prompt via e-mail so how can you pre-write your posts?
    Happy Halloween, candy or not!

      Another one of your replies in the trash :(. I think I’m going to try and draft several posts at once so if I get busy it will be easier to handle. I do that for the A to Z all the time and it really helps. You don’t have to use the prompt that they suggest.

    What is the Ultimate Blog Challenge? I used to do NaBloPoMo in November, but I’m too lazy for every day posting now. Also, it’s my dream to get inside one of those airline first class waiting lounges. You rock.

      The Ultimate Blog Challenge is just to write a blog post every day for the month. I get prompts in an email each day for ideas but it really is just whatever I want to write about. All we needed to do to get in the United Club was get a United Credit card. Considering that my husband has been flying to Oregon at least once a year for the last 5 years we really should have done it a long time ago! Live and learn, right?

    I won’t get candy until this weekend. I don’t need it around! Good luck with your challenge. I look forward to reading your posts.
