Happy Halloween! Here's what I've been up to:
Last week one of my coworkers brought her dog to work and kept him outside in a gated area. He somehow got free and started wandering through our office halls, much to my delight.
On Friday I found out that one of my teeth has been gradually imploding into a monster-cavity, which I was so sad to discover. But I am so happy to know the cause of this jaw pain!
I went to a children's book writing conference with a friend. We both thought it might be kind of lame, but then loved every minute of it! We've both wanted to write children's books since we were little, and this conference offered so much insight.
I got to spend some quality time with my parents (playing our favorite family board game, Rummikub...)
My friends and I carved pumpkins together. I felt like a scrooge as I gently tried to tell a five-year-old that no, she couldn't draw my jack-o-lantern for me because I wanted to do it myself.
And the night before I left on a trip to Chicago with some coworkers, we were texting each other non-stop with giddy packing questions.
And then I went to Chicago!! I'm looking forward to sketching that out.
