  • Can you believe that Thanksgiving is less than three weeks away?  How the heck did that happen?!  My goodness how time flies.
  • Are there any folks out there that have never had a pet before?  Unless you count the betta fish I purchased when I was 27 years old, I’ve never had a pet. No cats, no dogs, no hamsters, no lizards.  Nothing, nada. I wanted pets as a kid, but was never allowed.  As an adult,  I’ve always been tempted to get a pet, and then I go to a friend’s or family member’s home and see a scratched up expensive chair or a destroyed pair of shoes, and that changes my mind pretty quickly. So, imagine my surprise when my 43 year old sister (who also never had a pet) decided to get a cat for her son who had been begging for a pet.  That was quite the shock!  I’ll be curious to see how she transitions to being a pet owner.
  • Did you get many trick-or-treaters last week?  We had about 75, which has been the norm the past few years.  Halloween got Ken and I on the topic of candy reject piles.  Did you used to sort and count your candies when you were a kid?  Did you have a reject pile?  If so, what went in it?  Tootsie Rolls, Almond Joys, and Nerds always went in my reject pile!
  • Ken and I booked an Alaska cruise for this summer!  If you have any recommendations for shore excursions, I’d love to hear them!  They all sound so good, I can’t make up my mind!  The cruise leaves out of Seattle, and I booked two business class seats from JFK-Vancouver on Cathay Pacific for 25,000 Avios points each.  That is a great deal, and I am SO excited to try out Cathay Pacific!  We’ll leave for the west coast a few days early and make our way from Vancouver to Seattle.
  • I ordered an iPhone 6 last month (on the 12th), and it still hasn’t shipped yet.  It said it would ship in 14-21 days.  Womp womp.

That’s it for this week!  Any plans for the weekend?
