Okay minions, my nails are painted black, I’ve got on my all-black costume (a.k.a., yoga pants and comfy shirt for relaxing – I’m an overworked woman for Halloween), the candle in the jack o’lantern is lit, The Omen is saved to instant view, and I have a bag of chocolate for
myself the trick-or-treaters. Recipe for a very fulfilling Halloween.
Additionally, my sister sent me a picture of my nephew in his little teddy-bear costume, and I almost started weeping. It’s only been three days and I already miss the little dickens like crazy! This long-distance auntie stuff isn’t for sissies…and I’m a sissy.
Here are some distracting photographs for you while I wipe away my mascara.
Notice how there are no pictures of Mimi in there? That’s because she sensed that her crazy mama was going to dress her up in a costume made of paper towels held together with safety pins and photograph her, so she has made herself scarce this Halloween. She is probably off mutilating rodents, as she is wont to do. She is more intelligent than I gave her credit for…
So that was my brief way of saying, “Happy Halloween. I love you all. I hope you get a lot of adorable kids knocking on your door tonight but still have left over candy the next day. I hope none of aforementioned candy makes you ill/gain unwanted poundage. I’m signing off early tonight so I can enjoy my favorite holiday with an orgy of scary movies and too many mini candy bars.”
