Halloween is quickly approaching (two more days) and last weekend we finally got around to decorating the house. Well, we did a little bit here and there in the prior weeks but we're finally done... I think. There's still a hay bale in the hallway but Tyson uses it to sit on when putting on his shoes. It will probably remain there after Halloween.
Last weekend was memorable... but not the way I would've liked to remember it. It all started in July when I came across a random article that said "New Order to Tour North America for the First Time in Seven Years". New Order was one of my favorite groups when growing up and I've never seen them before. I must go! Coincidentally, it was the same weekend as the Red River Rivalry. We'll be without kids and this opportunity won't ever present itself again so yes, I must go to that too!
This past weekend we headed up to Austin to run the Tough Mudder. After doing a couple 5k mud runs, this was naturally the next step. Tough Mudder is a 12-mile course that included 22 obstacles, ranging from submersion in ice water to getting electrocuted. This was no joke.
