If you celebrate Halloween, how did it fare?
I would say that my kids cleared about a standard pillowcase's worth of combined candy.
Don't believe me?
That's a lot of candy.
Which made for such great temptations.
It took the whole week for me to resist. I was very much like those zombies in this new show I've tuned into, milling mindlessly around the candy. Negotiating with it, pleading for it to just jump into my mouth so I don't have to bear the guilt of opening it. Sometimes growling it at, wishing it wasn't so bad for me.
I am glad to say that I resisted many moments.
But some, well, I won't divulge too much. Except that it was dayum good. Not just darn good, but dayum.
How's that for grammar!
But really, I was pooped. I realize that in all the buildup of an event, much is left to the wayside. Those oh so important things like laundry. The sorting of endless pieces of paper the find their way into the house. Much needed quilting, some knitting. And reading! Yes, but laundry would have to take the cake. I still haven't reconciled that that is something I will have to do. forever. I've made peace with the dishes - but the laundry? Anyhoo...
We always very much need a holiday from our holidays here at the Halu*Halo residence.
But I'm above water now.
