Sunday Night Chit Chat - October 15, 2012

Yep....that about sums it up.

Tonight's Chit Chat....

Reading:  I finished The Hunger Games.  Now I want to see the movie!  Anyone read the book and see the movie?  Is the movie worth it??? I have book 2 of the trillogy on order at the library, but I think there are a few people ahead of me.  Plus, I ordered  a few books to help me deal with my parents.  So right reading.

Watching: While the kids are still will probably be Amazing Race.  But once they are down for the night...I will probably watch last week's episode of Revenge, and then the new one tonight.

Listening to:  Family Game Night......oh boy.  At least it isn't Dora!  They revamped the show this season, and it is better than it was.

Cooking/Baking: Dinner tonight was grilled pork chops, cornbread stuffing, and green beans.  I made a great crock pot recipe on Friday, and it made a ton.  We had 2 dinners and a lunch from it.

Happy you accomplished today:  First off...this is from last week, but I forgot to post it.  The kids and I made a haunted house from a kit I bought on clearance a few years ago.  I had to build the structure, as the instructions were murky, and the pieces didn't fit together (and stay!) very well.  But the decorating is all them.

As for what I actually did today.....hmmmm.  I know I didn't finish the laundry!  We were running errands a good portion of today.  Some were fine...but Target was frustrating (on-line price didn't match store price and they wouldn't honor the on-line price), and I lost one receipt that I needed to turn in.  If I can't find it (which I can't believe I lost it.....I never lose these things), I am out $8.  Not the end of the world, but that is not the point!

Looking forward to next week: Christmas shopping!!  I am scoping out a few things, and since I have $1125 in the fund, I can start!

Thankful for today: That I put gas in the car yesterday, so it was one less thing I had to do today!

Bonus Question:  What time do you go to bed & wake up in the morning?  In general, I go to bed around 11pm and get up at 7am.  I need sleep....I don't do well on too little sleep.

Thanks to Carla for hosting!! 


  1. Morgan read the book & LOVED the movie! You shoud watch it! :) I didn't read the book but really enjoyed the movie! Good job on the Xmas cash! I'm Xmas shopping now too!

  2. Have you ever tried to return something at Target w/o a receipt? As long as I have my debit card, they will swipe my card & look up the item if I don't have my receipt. In some ways that's good, in some ways that's REALLY bad (don't know if I like the fact that they can track every.single.thing that I purchase from them...).

  3. Great Halloween house! Too cute!

  4. Read all three books and loved, loved the movie! Made the characters much more endearing because I already had a relationship with them from the books.
    I TRY to go to bed by 10pm. Sleep by 10:30pm. My alarm goes off at 6:45am.
