It is one of the best weeks to be a Mom because the children are thrilled to go Trick-or-treating and after that, there are plenty of bribery tools available in the house! The girls had a ball on Halloween enjoying trick or treating in our neighborhood, visiting our friends in our old neighborhood and then going to our neighborhood Halloween party which included, games, prizes and a magic show.
I love that they still enjoy going out together as sisters....I would imagine someday in the near future they will want to go with friends. For now I will enjoy this time!
Gabby has asked me every day since Halloween, "Can we go trick or treating again today?" I guess she doesn't get the "once a year" concept. Pretty cute.
Our soldier not very excited for a photo.
When you are 7 years old, your costume changes by the day, then on Halloween, by the hour. I say, "You look cute, you are comfortable and most importantly, you are happy, your costume is complete."
A good time was had by all and now I have a boatload of candy that I need to take into work, that we WILL NOT eat at the nurses station...rule followers. I may need a lot of extra candy to stay up through daylight savings...13 hours. UG. You will enjoy the extra hour of sleep, I will open an extra candy bar or 2. (Nurses are such health nuts.)
Maybe I should be excited about the 13 hours....today this little doozy made me sad.
You know what this is? I went in for an oil change ($19.99) and leave with a $659.89 bill. Really? Really? One of the benefits of having a hearing deficit, is that you don't hear your vehicle making funny noises until there is a serious problem. Of course there is always the on lookers turning and staring from the sidewalk to see what the terrible noise is....that is a dead give away, even for the deaf. So long story long, I brought it in, they told me there was a terrible problem and I proceeded to cry at home. I talked to my BF on the phone, he remained calm and unfazed...confirming my repetitive, irrational behavior over annoying vehicle expenses. When I say repetitive I will refresh your memory and remind you....we spent over 2 grand on the truck this past summer. In the trucks defense...up until summer, she she has been awesome. I am a fair weather fan...I now hate her.
My tears turned to joy when the fedex man brought these
Pure joy. My family and I enjoyed them immensely. Thank you dear friend. That is when I moved on and realized how foolish I was being. I have a nice life with wonderful friends and family and on top of all of this...I just took a nice shower, clean pajamas and clean sheets, the trifecta, as Auntie Joyce used to call it. Life is good. Love, Gina
