Yesterday was Halloween. I'm not really into the whole American tradition thing, but saw it more as getting out, dressed up, with the neighbours! I didn't dress up, and we didn't put much thought into Jensen's outfit. Originally, my half-arsed idea was to paint him green and send him as The Hulk. Then someone suggested some cardboard boxes and he could go as a robot. That was my idea for a while, then just passed on it. Eventually, at 430 in the afternoon (Trick or Treat-ing due to start at 530pm) we decided on "Bob the Builder". We found J a flannelette shirt, some overalls, tied a belt around him and tucked all the toy tools that he has around him. He even had some goggles on! He didn't look like Bob the Builder, but you could tell that's what he was. He got HEAPS of lollies, and used his manners each time. There were heaps of kids, and apparently we're going to be in the paper again (we were in the paper at Christmas last year).

Exams start this weekend! I'm kinda excited - coz this year's nearly over, nervous - coz I really need to pass and I have no idea. I'm looking forward to it all being over, coz then I only have to go to work. I can knock back the hours J is at daycare, and take him out of at least one. He'll still go to daycare, coz he loves it and I don't want to ruin his routine for when the baby comes. Exams are Saturday at 130, Wednesday at 830am, Friday 830am and the following Monday 8am. The weekend between the Friday exam and Monday exam, we're going camping.... again!
This time, when we go camping, we're going with my sister, her husband and 2 kids, and one of my sister's friends and her family (I think the friend has only 1 kid). I'm looking forward to it. It will be a little hard to concentrate on studying while we're there. The Monday exam is a practical one, and goes for 30 mins. We have to take temp's, blood pressure, pulse etc. So I'm going to write up my spiel, and take with my blood pressure kit and spiel and practice over the weekend. I reckon it's the exam I'm the most stressed over.
