Can you all believe September is gone? POOF! Just gone. And now it’s October. And if you have a 9 year-old boy (or a 17-year-old-boy or two 16-year-old-boys) the conversation turns to Halloween. I’m in a fight for my life here, folks. I don’t want bloody prop-things dropping from my roof on unsuspecting visitors, but the older boys think this is a great idea. I LOVE Andy, but I’m having a hard time keeping my eyes from rolling back in my head as he describes his Halloween costume which is something new each and every day . . . I LOVED Halloween when everyone was little and I could influence their costume choices. Now, eh, not so much.
We’re planning our little neighborhood party and the anticipation of food someone else has made always makes me happy. In the meantime, I am pulling out all of my Happy Halloween vibes and bracing for the onslaught of grossness and stoopid-ness. (I mean that in the kindest way.)
What are your Halloween plans? I think I’m going to live large this year and give out BIG candy bars. We don’t get tons of trick/treaters here and “fun-size” is just not a good thing for me. I read fun-size, I think, it’s OK. And, I think it’s OK about 50 more times. And then the bag is empty and it’s only October 3. And, even I cannot drink enough Diet Coke to soak up all of that chocolate-nish-ish. So, full-size it is. Stay-tuned. It’s easy to sneak the mini candy, a little trickier to scarf down a whole bar of candy. I wonder if I’ll just give up sleep so I can eat chocolate in the dark or if I can maintain some level of control . . . Hmmmm!
Any great costume ideas? Fun plans?
