And just like that here we are, a full week into the month of November. Remember when I said October was going to be my month? Well that didn't happen. Based on the plans I already have for November though, I'm thinking this is really going to be a good month. I hope that y'all had a fantastic weekend.
Friday I worked a half day & it was the easiest half day ever. I subbed the second half of the day & the first class was a leadership class so there was a whopping 2 kids in it, & it was also the lunch period, and then the 2nd class was a communications class but the teacher had had printer issues so the kids played board games the entire time. I finally finished reading The Oath nearly 2 months after starting it. When I got home I put 2 more books on hold a the library. Hopefully it won't take me as long to get through those. I really like The Oath & whenever I would read it I'd get sucked into it but I had so many other random things going on I couldn't always pick it up. That night I did nothing but watch TV. I watched the most recent episodes of NCIS: LA, Chicago Fire, & Hawaii Five-0 as well as binged some more Gilmore Girls.
My plan for Saturday was to head up to Denton to go to the Market & then attempt to make a candle in a rum bottle and get some stuff done around the house like laundry and what not. That is not at all what happened & it turned out to be one of the best days I've had in a really long time. I was on I-35 heading north towards Denton when I got a wild hair & just kept driving. I kept right on driving until I crossed the Texas/Oklahoma border. Then I kept driving a little more until I decided that I needed to pick somewhere to stop or I might just keep driving. I stopped in Ardmore, Oklahoma & ate lunch at Two Frogs Grill. I was driving & typed in restaurants in Ardmore & it was the first one that came up. Such a good choice. I ordered the Cajun Catfish with mashed potatoes & gravy and fried okra. I also got a bacon bloody mary. The catfish was THE BEST catfish I've ever had. It was perfectly seasoned & melted in my mouth. Before I got to Oklahoma I also figured that I'd maybe stop for lunch & then just turn around & go home. Also not what happened. I passed a field of horses on my drive & thought "I want to go horseback riding!" So I googled a place to do so & that is exactly what I did after
lunch getting lost on some back roads. After that I did finally decide to head back home. I got back around 6:30 and was exhausted. I laid in bed watching more Gilmore Girls for awhile until I just couldn't keep my eyes open anymore.
Sunday morning I went to church. I should add in that I don't go to church. I just don't. It's not that I don't believe in God or that I'm not religious, I just have my own reasons. I do believe in God & I pray everyday actually, I just don't go to church. Well I had been thinking about it for a couple of days & decided that I wanted to go. It was about 15 min before I had to leave & I almost decided that I wasn't going to go. However, I went. Something told me to go. There's a chance that I may have gotten teary eyed while there. The message that day was exactly what I needed for what has been going on in my life. I've already decided I'll be going again next week. Not to the same church though. There is another one that I want to try out, & almost did, but ultimately decided to go to the one that I had been to before. After church I ran to Walmart & then sat at home doing absolutely nothing. I watched a Say Yes To The Dress marathon. Then, I watched a Fixer Upper marathon. At some point I ordered a couple of pizzas from Dominos because coupon & food for the week. I ended the night with The Walking Dead. I'm so not in love with the show anymore...
