Good Monday morning, blog readers!
Well all this Halloween talk has got me feeling kind of batty (nudge-nudge). I’m glad it’s over.
We did the Chipotle run on our way out to a bonfire at a friend’s house. We definitely didn’t go all out this year—it was just too rushed. We all sported a tinfoil feather in our hats and that was that. I don’t think they even check because they’re so stinkin’ busy.
Orison dressed as a lion, and had lots of fun at the bonfire playing with the other kids and taking a tractor ride. Somehow, even without trick-or-treating, we ended up with ridiculous amounts of candy. At this point it’s being used as incentives for taking good naps. We like to call them “blessings” in our house.
So what’s your plan for getting rid of the candy? I’m really, really trying not to eat copious amounts. Actually, it’s not candy in general. I could do without the Skittles, suckers, etc. But the chocolate… totally my weakness. I would like to eat a whole bag of Snickers in one sitting.
But… after 18 months of nearly consecutive pregnancy, that’s probably not the best idea.
Other than Halloween, the weekend was pretty good. Our weather in Minneapolis has been incredible this past week. For it to be November and not wearing coats is pretty much unheard of. We’re just trying to enjoy every bonus day we get at this point.
I ended up taking a ridiculously long nap on Sunday afternoon, thanks to my wonderful husband and woke up completely disoriented because it was as dark as night outside. Yes, “fall back” totally screwed me up.
Usually the day after the end of Daylight Savings time (you know, the one where it gets dark at like 4pm???) is one of my least favorite days of the year. It just depresses me. Abraham, on the other hand, loves it. So I’m glad I slept through the painful part, watching the sun sink out of my kitchen windows at 3:30 or something. Eventually I get used to it and I hardly notice anymore, but those first few days are just sad!
But I woke up to a dinner of Trader Joe’s Mandarin Chicken and rice, thanks again to my industrious husband.
Now it’s 11:45pm and I’m not tired at all. Can you tell that’s why I’m rambling? Abraham’s offering to read to me out loud from Merriam Webster’s Concise Dictionary of English Usage if that would help (seriously, he reads that). And I should be asleep in about 2 minutes.
