I'm back & Happy Halloween: Updated

E picked me up from the airport yesterday at 12:45pm. We had a lovely lunch at home, given that I wanted normal food. After 5 days of eating out (most of which was convention center CRAP!!), all I wanted was a pb & j with carrots on the side. That's exactly what we had.

I spent the rest of the afternoon lounging on the couch, taking a bath, reading my new Consumer Reports book about baby gear (thanks R, J & M!!), taking a nap, and walking Gladys. Not a bad afternoon in my opinion.

In the evening, E and I ran out to buy me a witch's hat for my Halloween "costume". Everyone dresses up here at my job, so I now have a hat to fit in/play along/look like a team player etc... The truth is, I'm the freak that hates dressing up for Halloween. I blame my mom who hated finding four costumes every year (except that I also find it totally understandable/justified!!) I really like my. own. clothes. SOOOO, I'm wearing all my own clothes (black) and I have this hat I can wear at the party this afternoon. A perfect Halloween compromise.

So, I'm back and getting into the swing of things. I have a lot of work to catch up on here at the office, but so does everyone else on my team.

Happy Halloween!

Update: I did not win the costume contest, even though there were several prizes. I won't win next year either, as I plan on being the very same thing. Next year I'll skip the lining up at the front of the room and voting so that I can sit in the crowd and enjoy my caramel apple in peace. :-)

Welcome home. PB&J's are the BEST real food :)
I can smell them right now after reading this post :)

I'm with you on the whole dressing up thing - NOT A FAN. To compensate, I try to bring some sort of creepy, yummy dessert into the office to show I'm a "team player." And holy moley! You're 13 weeks! That's some kind of amazing, isn't it?

Welcome Back! I'm with you on the dress up thing. I love dressing up the kids, and Peg likes to coordinate her costume with the kids. I consider myself the driver and photographer!

13 weeks already? Are you starting to show at all? Will we get any belly pics?

PS--Also NOT a Halloween fan.

Two days later and I'm still wearing my costume. For some reason the neighbors prefer that I wear a mask. Welcome home. For variety add a sliced banana to that PB&J. Take care. Love. Dad
