Things are turning a corner. Last week I was informed that I got a new job at my current company, it is a promotion and its the most excited I’ve ever been about a role.
In addition to that, I’ve been stressed, busy, driving all over the place for the past couple of weeks, but this weekend, I just stayed home and did yard work, cleaned up my car, tidied up the house, and relaxed.
We did make time to sneak into Pittsburgh and visit The Strip. The kids and I love The Strip, lots of vendors, tasty food, toys, sounds, and people. On our way back to the car, I dared the kids to go into an old abandoned building filled with graffiti. Winston first agreed and when he made it to the center without consequence, his sister joined too. I told them I wanted to snap their picture and their faces convey, “I am so not scared by this.”
We also went to Target and did reconnaissance on the Halloween section and costumes. We can have fun anywhere.
I am traveling down to DC for a couple of days this week and a big Pepper Festival in Pittsburgh this weekend. Perhaps I can goad someone into eating the Carolina Reaper pepper!
