Halloween and Thursday workout

1 Nov

My little kitty was sick all night last night and into this morning. She slept about 4 hours this afternoon and was ready to go trick or treating — it’s pretty cold here so we went to the mall . . . along with everyone else in town. Went pretty quickly thought and she was happy. We ran into some friends which was a nice surprise as well. She got a pretty good bit of loot – and some silly bands which excited her more than the candy. I was holding out for more chocolate but I suppose it’s not a bad thing there was only one little bag of m & m’s . . .

On to tomorrow’s workout (assuming sick kitty stays better) — I bring you IRON MAN!
