I can’t believe the end of October is already here. Sometimes, it seems that time goes so slowly, but honestly, it’s not.
Tonight was the night for all the little beggars to come out and get free candy. My favorite was the boy dressed as the Phantom of the Opera. When I guessed who he was, he seemed very excited. Also, work gave its employees Highlights for Children magazines to pass out–WHAT A HIT! The kids absolutely LOVED getting them! And the parents were impressed too.
This is what I dressed up as:
Aidan was Scooby-Doo, but he pronounces it “Fooky-Doo.” Here he is in his costume a few days ago:
He loved his costume! This is the first year he specifically asked for one, so I made sure I got it for him. His reaction was so worth it. “Oh, I love this! Thank you, Mommy, it’s just what I wanted!!!”
Work fed us. Fazoli’s. Yum. And speaking of work, I’m starting to do “1Rs” which are the first stage after working proofs. Big time stuff, that. I’m getting good at this, and I do enjoy it. I could tell you all sorts of things about Zaner-Bloser handwriting style. Strokes and curves and la la la.
What amazes me is the volume of different handwriting programs out there. Naturally, I think ZB is the best, but there are so many others! I’d never even thought about it before!
Now, if you’re wondering why he appears to be naked, here’s the story. He’s actually in his underwear, but here’s the thing. As soon as he walks in the door, he strips down to his underwear. Don’t ask me why. It’s just how he unwinds, I suppose.
Ack. It’s already nearly 11! I guess it’s time for me to head towards the bed, huh?
See, time DOES go fast. Now there’s Bob Dylan and Thanksgiving to look forward to! Eeeek!
‘Til next time.
