Yeah, yeah, yeah… it’s late over here on the West Coast, and I’m sure most of you are already onto November 1st, but we’re still eating candy here, so I’m writing a Halloween post. It’s my blog… I get to do what I want. 🙂
I went trail exploring this evening. In the dark. It was interesting, to say the least. Okay, the video is a little boring because it’s so dark… I’ll try better next time… but I found a great song to go with it.
And here’s a real thing… people have actually researched what the best wine is to go with your favorite Halloween candy. Seriously. Here’s a partial list:
If you like Hershey’s Kisses, pair it with a Zinfandel.
If you like Whoppers, a nice Cabernet Sauvignon will wash those down nicely.
Reeses Peanut Butter Cups go well with a Sherry.
Sweet Tarts apparently pair well with Riesling.
If you like Skittles, drink a Moscato.
And Kit Kats go perfectly with a Merlot.
Of course, if all else fails… water goes with everything!!
Hope everyone had a wonderfully spooky and fun Halloween!
So, I had dental surgery last Tuesday. One of my wisdom teeth was starting to grow directly into the nerve root of my upper back molar, causing me a significant amount of pain. I was hoping that the antibiotics the dentist gave me would clear up the pain and that surgery could wait until after the Route 66 Half, but I wasn’t infected, so there was no pain relief from the antibiotics, and something had to give. Which just so happened to be my back molar.
Now, most people get to be asleep when they have dental surgery. Not me. I have been to 3 different oral surgeons, all of whom couldn’t find a vein on me (my veins roll). One of them even turned me away and said “oh hell no,” he wasn’t doing surgery without me being asleep. Drama, drama, drama. Anyway, I stayed awake, they eventually got the tooth out, and now no more pain other than regular postop. Yay!
AJ had his official birthday party with friends last weekend. Thankfully my mouth pain behaved so I could deal with 6 very loud boys with no problem.

Then this happened:
Ohhh yeahhhhh! My wonderful hubby made sure I had the brand new MB CD to relax to that very same evening! I’m biased, but I give the album two thumbs up! Not keen on his Beach Boys remake… I think he slowed it down way too much, but hey, you can’t be perfect all the time, can you!
Other than that, I’ve been pretty much recouping! I missed Motivational Music Monday last week, and apparently so did James! James was having problems with his site showing up in the reader, so Music Monday turned into Music Happy Hour Friday! He picked a silly obnoxious song as he was drinking pumpkin beer (that’s just wrong on so many levels), but if you’re curious as to what was making him get down and boogie, go check it out.
As for me, I’m choosing a song and dedicating it to all the dentists and oral surgeons out there. This song has also been on my playlist for my last 4 races. Love it! Enjoy your Weeknd (ha! see what I did there?)!!
It’s almost Halloween! Are the spiders and ghosts in place?? Are you dressing up to hand out candy? If so, what’re you going to be? And stay tuned… now that I’m feeling better, I’m about to go explore a spooky trail with my GoPro to see where it takes me…

My little boy is nearly too old for trick-or-treating. He stands close to 5’3″ and is 11 years old now. My, my, my, how the time does fly. When he’s too old for it, I’ll have to figure out another way to restock my goody supply for free…
