Could be worse

It's almost winter here. Not officially, but weather-wise. The weather has been getting colder, we had some freezing temps and a dusting of snow last week that killed off the rest of my garden (I have 2 boxes of green tomatoes inside that I hope will ripen). Amazingly we had temps in the 70s on Halloween which was awesome for trick-or-treating, but I know that won't last. I'm really dreading the cold and snow. Though I'm not going to complain too much about our weather after what the East coast is going through with the destruction of Hurricane Sandy. It affected millions along the East coast. Awful seeing the pictures from areas like New Jersey and areas of New York. It may have even affected business contracts attorney raleigh nc. No matter how much I dislike the cold and snow, I'm very glad to live in an area with very few natural disasters. Although we live by a big fault line we only have rare minor earthquakes. Because we are surrounded by mountains we rarely get tornadoes or other big storms. We are landlocked so no threat of tsunamis or hurricanes. I may have my complaints about Utah, but the lack of major natural disasters is a plus lol (*knock on wood*).

Sugar overload

We had a really fun Halloween. The boys got way too much candy and had a long busy day. Started out with a costume parade at the boys' school. Then I checked them out a little early to go to Nate's work for trick-or-treating. They got tons of candy there, over half of their whole stash. Then we headed to my mom's and did a little more trick-or-treating, and while I went to class Nate took them home. When I got home we took them out to our neighborhood, which didn't last long. The babies were really slow and had a hard time getting around in their boxes lol. So after just a few houses I brought the twins back, and about 10 minutes later Nate returned with the other 3 because they were done. So we let them pig out on candy and watch a show while we passed out candy.
I weighed the candy the next day, and we had 13 lbs of candy! Not including what we'd pigged out on the day before. Yikes! So I've been eating way too much, but I've also started exercising, so that will hopefully counteract the junk lol.
