Is it really here? Already? Eek. I think it came kind of fast this year. I have candy to give out and the kids have costumes. Jane is a pirate and Kate is a mermaid. Both costumes are store-bought pieces of junk, but I am okay with that. I couldn’t make them after last year. Well, I could have thrown a pirate costume together pretty easily, but the picky dresser didn’t like that idea. Kate’s costume has already ripped. Twice. Oh well. I am not fixing it again – it seems futile.
I’ve been sick since Sunday morning. Monday afternoon it was a confirmed case of strep throat with a sinus infection chaser. I’m feeling better today, but I am still not up to snuff. I’m tired and just want to nap. But I am the second grade room mother, so I have to go run the Halloween Party this afternoon. Thank goodness we have a Krispy Kreme nearby. The thought of making cupcakes really wears me out. I wish I could find a good, age appropriate, short video for the kids to watch because playing GHOST bingo sounds like a lot of work, too. But then again, I have the bingo game and I don’t have the video. I guess bingo wins.
On a brighter note, Jane brought home this drawing. It made me smile.
Off to stuff goody bags (oh joy!) and then work up the energy to take a shower. Maybe after school I will feel well enough to carve pumpkins. Then again, no one has asked about doing that so I may not bring it up. Yes, I am feeling like a bad mom.
Enough grumbling. Hope your Halloween is safe and full of fun. And candy – lots of candy. Hey, I think a bite of chocolate might be just what the doctor ordered. Now where did I put it?
