Ok, you get the picture. We carved pumpkins tonight. At least the boys and I did. V is busy finishing a test so he can do freelance proofreading where he works (in addition to what he already does). J14 is upstairs, probably messaging with her boyfriend. (I'm really not sure I'm entirely ready for this high school dating thing). Not much going on. Boys have their costumes for tomorrow night. I still need to figure out what I will be since it's my turn to accompany them on the annual Halloween Candy Death March this year. We'll hit a few elderly neighbors who look forward to seeing the kids (everyone else near us are college students in rental houses- we're the last owner occupied house on our block). Then we'll head a few blocks up to the historic district- they give out good candy there. If you can afford a house there, you can afford to give out good candy.
