Jason and I have been making homemade pizza on Friday nights for a couple months now. It started with me making the dough in the bread machine, but after a while it got too tough to make the dough on a weeknight so now we buy the dough at Engfer's pizza down the street and then I roll them out and we add toppings and bake them. Actually, I've been hand tossing them lately, with mixed results, but it's fun and they taste so much better than delivery. We stopped ordering delivery since I have finally stopped eating fast food.

Tired Thursday

Today was pretty easy and mellow overall. It's nice to feel like you get something done even if it is nowhere near what you wanted to accomplish.
Halloween is coming and I haven't had time to think about a costume or anything. I'm going to have to think about that this weekend. I'll probably wear my Alice costume to work, and then maybe the flapper for night. We're supposed to be having a party, but I'm not really into is as much as I was a month ago. People will still come over and hang out, but I just can't do the whole nine yards this year.
At least tomorrow is Friday! I can't believe the month is almost over and that election day is right around the corner.

APA Sucks

Been extremely busy lately with work and school.  It's been absolutely beautiful weather, but I've been pretty tired and trying not to be stressed from all the new stuff I'm being asked to do.
I walked Tiki today, which I have only done a few times since the accident.  We just went down to the beach and back.  She is still hard to handle sometimes, but I'm hoping to start walking her daily again.  Before I broke my foot we were walking about an hour almost every day.  
Last night I had my CSUMB classes.  I left home yesterday at 6am and didn't get home until 10:30pm.  That is quite a grind.  
Monday I actually took off work because I was so tired and worn out, and basically did laundry and watched TV.
Sunday was football day -- GO RAIDERS!  
We have been tailgating in the handicapped area since I have a placard through November.  It's cool there because you can really spread out and there is more room for each space.
Here's our set up, food, and a picture of us. Where did all those wrinkles come from?
