Stinky in her most gruesome, and therefore my favorite Halloween costume.
Sooo, with all the hub bub the last couple of weeks, I almost forgot Halloween was coming up. Jeez! How did that happen? Now that things are calming down with the guy's recovery, I can start getting on the stick and carve pumpkins and make pumpkin pie and rake leaves this weekend (and more importantly, jump in them) and get all festive.
I was just thinking today how October has generally been a big trauma month for me. This year was the guy's accident, When Coadster was a baby, we got in our accident on October 4th and my mom died near the end of October. Since I was 10, I'm not sure of the date, but I remember it was right before Halloween, because I was in total denial and went trick-or-treating, thinking that if I just did everything like normal, then everything would return that way and my mom would be home when I got there. (one of my longer sentences, that one)
Even though I'm not a fan of the colder weather and how early it will start getting dark, I suppose I won't mind watching November rush in...
