Happy Halloween (and stuff)

31 Oct

It may have rained in two of my bedrooms, but I made it through the storm. On Monday night I was so bored that I ate an entire bag of Halloween candy, drank a bottle of wine and then, by candlelight and Nicki French’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart,” learned to sing and hula hoop with two hoops at the same time. That will be useful for my future, I’m sure.

Anyway, Happy Halloween! While you all are out with your children, I’ll be stuffing my face giving out candy by myself and wishing I had a screaming kid on a sugar high.

    I’m enjoying the fact that my son is old enough to go trick or treating with his friend so I don’t have to tag along. How’s that for maternal Halloween spirit?

    Nice to know you made through the storm like my family did, drinking and eating.
    You should put the recently mastered skills on your resume.
    Happy Halloween!

    Wine can solve even hurricane level boredom. Glad you roughed it through. Because hula hooping is as rough as rough can get.

    Seriously though, glad you didn’t get any really dangerous damage.

    I can’t think of anything to say that hasn’t already been said, so here are some words that rhyme with horns:
    Horns, fawns, forlorns, dawns, yawns, spawns, corns, torns, scorns, lawns. Shorns, thorns, borns, bornes, pawns, porns, sworns.
