Happy Halloween Everyone
I love the fall for the weather and decorations but I have never been really fond of Halloween. I think the reason for that is that I am not artistic or creative. My kids always had the store bought costumes. It is such an exciting day for little kids but I never wanted my kids to go out as teenagers. I was the mean mom. I figured they would only get in trouble. In Massachusetts, it is THE THING for the teens to go out egging or shave creaming. Also it was THE THING for the high school kids to STEAL pumpkins and then on Halloween Night they would choose a teacher that would get dumped on in his or her yard with hundreds of pumpkins. I did not like this tradition and wonder whether or not they still do it. Anyway my grandkids are small and very much looking forward to tonight. And because of that, I am happy for them and will enjoy their enthusiasm.
This has been a great week. I am easing into the work thing very slowly. Because the schedule had already been done for the week when I returned, I was just an extra. I worked 4 hrs on Tuesday helping out with a box lunch for a girls high school tournament. Today I worked 2.5 hrs doing the inventory. I also got to some cleaning in the house that has been neglected.
I have been very bad with the choice of food since I have been home. I don't know if it is stress eating or what. I know what foods are bad for me but thats exactly what I've been eating. I hope it doesnt continue.
Tomorrow looks to be a good day. I will start the day off at a church festival. I love those craft type fairs. Don't know why since I don't have the need for any more STUFF.. Then we are going to the Continental Airlines Employee picnic. Sounds like a fun day and looking forward to it.
You all enjoy and don't eat too much candy..

I wasn't the "crafty" type mom either and I had a sister who was so her kids costumes were always really cool. Oh well, I'm a better cook. Can you see we're still competing? Great Halloween blog.
