It's that time of year again, Na(tional)Blo(g)Po(sting)Mo(nth). I can almost garuntee (how do you spell that?) that I will fail, but I'll give it another go.
Last night was the first Halloween in about ten years that I did not do anything. It kinda sucked. I was really looking forward to dressing Fifi up (we were going to be the Three Bears), but I never got around to making her costume (just couldn't think of how to do it), and besides, there was nothing going on anywhere. We had a Halloween party here last year, but this year there's no way we could've afforded throwing a party. There was also a kids' thing at FunWorld, but I also knew there was no way I'd be able to convince Scott to spend his evening in a room full of kids. So, we stayed in. Did nothing. Had two trick-or-treaters. Ate the rest of the chocolate eyeballs. Went to bed. I'm a bit down about that.
But oh well, there's always next year, right? And maybe I can get some children's costumes on sale at Tesco if there are still any in stock to get rid of.
I feel my quality of life has lessened just slightly by missing this most weirdest of holidays.
Ah, geez, it was Reformation Day too, and I did nothing for that either! (I told my friends that I go walking with that Halloween was also Reformation Day about two seconds before I remembered they are all Catholic...)
However, check out my cute niece Audrey in her costume:
