I slept 12 hours last night, even with being up in the middle of the night for about an hour. It was good to get some rest.
Halloween was an absolute success. Many of us dressed up in the hospital. I got a co-worker who gets up at an ungodly 4 am each day so she can work out and get ready to call me at 4:30 am so I would have plenty of time to do the makeup, etc. I left home at 6:30 am and arrived at UK's lot at 6:55, and at work about 7:10 am, so I was a little early, but not much, and there was time to chat with others, play a bit on the laptop I brought, and take pictures. Thankfully, I was not the only person on the shuttle to wear a costume; Mr Incredible was there as well, although the guy lamented that the pyjamas that he was wearing (they were cheaper than the costumes with the muscles) had no pockets, and therefore he was carrying his phone, keys, and badge in his hands and had no idea what he would do with them during the day. :) Welcome to the world of women, who rarely have pockets and if so, they're never deep for anything of note.
I had street clothes, the lightest I could find, as I knew I'd be hot, underneath mine, although they were polyester so that probably defeated the attempt at staying cool. And I had no pockets. But once I clocked in, I put my badge on my pants waistband so I'd have my keys and badge with me without ruining the effect of the costume. Granted, the whole point is to ID someone, but I was more concerned with the fact that our badges unlock various areas of the hospital and I didn't want to get trapped anywhere. :)
Here are some pictures from that day:

I have a lot to do today:
First, get caffeinated and ready for the day. Go to the pharmacy for YKWIA when he gets up. Get gas for the car.
- Drop off the summer clothes and the Maleficent costume at the storage unit.
Do a couple of shelves (dusting) in my room.I do two shelves every Saturday to keep all the books in the house clean, on a rotating basis. Launder the bedding. Go on a grocery run. Do the game notes.Last week we barely survived an evil witch and yes, I called it, Cthulhoid faeries.
- Do some cooking. We're making pumpkin beignets, among other things.
- Straighten up my room.
- Read more of The Rabbit-Proof Fence by Doris Pilkington.
Make bread. Water the plants.
- Watching more of 'The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina' on Netflix; we've watched four episodes and it's really good.
