What I didn't do on Halloween

Many people were surprised that I decided to stay in on Halloween. I usually wouldn't pass up a Friday Halloween opportunity but this year I just couldn't muster up the energy. I had a rough week stomach wise. I'm trying to lower the amount of Zantac I take and well there's this lovely thing called acid rebound and it was not fun. Basically things get worse before they get back to normal. My sleep was interrupted and I just felt very blarg. My stomach seems to be doing better now. I hope I can eventually get off Zantac completely and stick with the double dose of PPIs. I don't know how I have any acid in my stomach anymore honestly.

So what did I do on Halloween? Well Derek and I watched the Purge: Anarchy I ended up passing out and missing the last few minutes of the movie. All that poor sleeping caught up with me. We kept looking out the windows to investigate loud noises to make sure the college students weren't destroying anything. It's like I live the Purge every weekend. There's no passing out candy in my neighborhood unfortunately. We're all apartments and there's not too many little kids.

The rest of the weekend has been pretty lazy. I re-watched North and South on Netflix yesterday because um...

I can't help it, I love me some BBC and period costumes and accents.

Today it was sleeting out and I went to the super market to be greeted by Christmas decor and candy canes. Too soon super market. I got adventurous and made these zucchini tots which came out really really good. I doubled the recipe. They were pretty easy to make too. I'm learning in the kitchen. I still would rather be lazy and order takeout but I'm trying!

The weekend is almost over and Bosco stole my spot on the couch but I'm full of zucchini so all is well.


  1. I can't believe it's already November and the weather is all HEY IT'S FALL already.

  2. Sorry about the stomach thing, but maybe it's best that you were home. College kids and Halloween can be a lethal mix.

  3. Everything is better in a British accent. Everything. (English, Scottish, and Welsh all apply. Even Irish is good. I'm not picky.)
