Around and back again

1 11 2007

This year, Halloween was a mixed bag for me. To be perfectly honest, as of yesterday morning, I was pretty much OVER Halloween all together. I just wanted to get through the day quickly and get it over with. In the end, it didn’t turn out so bad.

Every year since he was born, I have taken SBJ trick or treating. This was the first year that I didn’t. The ex’s sister had offered to have her boys (ages 17 and down) take him trick or treating around her neighborhood. When I asked him what he wanted to do, he said that he wanted to go with them. Cousin’s trump mom every time. Especially boy cousins. That was pretty depressing but he is 6 and I know this will NOT be the last time I loose out over “hanging with the boys” vs. “hanging with mom.” I’m fine with that. As fine as I can be. So he stayed with his dad last night. I’ll pick him up today from soccer practice so I’m sure I’ll be hearing all kinds of stories.

Two years ago on Halloween, I took SBJ trick or treating around town. This was the first year the ex decided not to go with us and also the first year that Rura did. He walked the blocks and blocks of houses with us while we collected all different kinds of candy. We had a lot of fun together.

Halloween 2005. This is also the first picture we ever took together. We weren’t dating at the time, but don’t worry, the obligatory anniversary post WILL come this month.

Halloween 2007. Do you like my boob muscles? We snapped this one real quick before midnight, just for the tradition. We WERE in costume earlier but had already changed.

We didn’t trick or treat together last year because I was about 20 days shy of manning up and leaving the ex.

After I left work I was pretty out of the mood of Halloween. There was a severe accident at my work that I really cannot talk about now, but I will say that it was horrific and not exactly the best way to kick off Halloween. I went over to Rura’s and we were just going to hang out there, pass our candy, and just chill with his family. His sisters, brother, and cousin were dressed up and when I left for the store, I came back and HE was dressed up. So I just threw something together because I wasn’t prepared with a costume. We hung out for a bit handing out candy, him scaring kids by laying on top of the roof and throwing a dangling cushion thing at them when they walked up. He made a little girl cry and after that, he stopped because he felt bad. After that, we decided to do our own trick or treating. Mind you, the youngest person with us was 15 so we got a lot of “aren’t you a little OLD to be trick or treating?” We threw eggs at those houses.

I kid!!! It was toilet paper!

Overall, it was a good night. The beer helped, let me tell you! Getting an extra hour of sleep because I stayed at Rura’s helped too.

I totally blanked on the Perfect Post Awards this month. I had a good one in mind too but I’m not going to say who’s. If I did, then you would be mad because I was too lazy to do it and you don’t get a shiny button for it. So lets just pretend I didn’t say anything at all ok?

This is my first post of NaBloPoMo. I really don’t know if I can do this so please encourage me! Monique outlined what she is going to do for the month. I can only say so far that on Saturdays I want to do a post with pics from the week and on Sunday, of course I’ll be doing ARK Sundays.

What is ARK Sundays you ask? Well just go here and check it out!  Now with buttons!!

I am giving you a free pass for at least 4 posts of NaBloPoMo here people! That is 4 posts that will practically write themselves. Unless you are pure evil. Then you are on your own.

That’s it. I’m spent. Come back every day this month for exciting posts just like this one. *yawn*

I wasn’t feeling Halloween this year myself, I think it’s just because I have been so exhausted lately. :/ Making the NaBloPoMo plan was simple- but sticking to it is going to be damn near impossible. I’m fairly sure we first timers can make it though, there has got to be something interesting to blog about every day! Loved the boob muscles, LOL.

Whew…all these people doing NaBloPoMo. I’m feeling like a loner for not doing it. But I suppose I’m a loner with less pressure…I’ll take that! haha!
