I have pictures, but they’re in my phone. Tim was supposed to show me how to set the pictures free, but he left. I know, he left ME for a party. The surprises never end.
This is my first year without having any kid in a costume. Andy considered it but blew his chances and spent the night with me and Mike. A 13-year-old’s dream-come-true. He was a lot of fun tonight. For the first time in years and years, I did not walk around the neighborhood with the parents of kids that are still cute in their costumes. Weird.
Instead, I spent the night feeling weepy and cleaning and emptying the porch and then moving furniture around the porch. I’m so glad there is chocolate left.
Ian made it to Prague. I wonder what he’s eating? Dan made it to a second interview for a PAID summer intership! Excellent news. But (there’s always a but) it’s local. After two-plus years mostly away, Dan will likely be home full time this summer – that could be interesting. Upside? He should be able to save a lot of money.
And, now it’s Nov 1 and I should be starting a novel. And here I am. :::sigh::: I just need a hint of an idea and I’ll get going. In the meantime, I’m going to have the cleanest house on the planet.
Hope you all had a Happy Halloween!
