*Before you let your kids eat twizzlers, read this first.*
I woke up in a bad mood. My first thought was what a stupid holiday this Halloween thing is. With the rain, and forecast storm tonight, this whole trick or treating business will put a damper on the whole evening. (Get it? DAMPer? lol)
My headache woke me up prior to 5 am so I left the bed to come to the couch and nurse my pain in front of the tv. Only someone kicked the remote under the couch and since I can’t see in the dark and light hurts my headache it took me a while to figure this out. I stomped around and turned on lights and the kettle and finally found the remote but by that time I was more, not less, pissed off, so there’s that. Why can’t things be simple just some of the time? I realize we all have irritants and annoyances but really, haven’t I had more than my share recently?
There is a ton of candy in this house. We normally have between 150-200 kids so I wanted to be prepared. Except, the weather may not result in that many trick or treaters. Will this mean we will have to eat all this candy ourselves?
Maybe I won’t bake any Christmas cookies this year and just hand out Halloween candies in December…
While sipping coffee and flicking with the remote, I noticed this face sneering at me…so I got up and lit the candles and suddenly I felt calmer, and better. The children’s delight in Halloween decorations, and pumpkins, and all the hoopla, it does make the irritations of life seem a little less daunting.
Say hello to Mr. Pumpkinhead. Sonja and Ben carved him with their dad last night, and they are so proud!
