Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! It’s October 31, 2015! and all my children are grown. Grandbaby’s out of town for the weekend and I am left feeling sorry for myself. The nostalgia of past Halloweens, candy, costumes, candy, parties, candy, trick or treating…so many memories…did I mention candy?….and now I literally don’t know what to do with myself. Do you remember the smell of all that candy, mixed together in the pillow case? Ahhhh……

I have a ‘Saturday list’. It says

…closet (that sounds like a lot of fun)

….laundry (likewise)

…exercise (always there)

…blog (now there’s one I can feel!)

So, here I am, putting all those racing thoughts on this paper screen for both of you to read. I was making waffles (healthy flax ones..here’s the recipe…3 Tbl Flax Meal, 1 tsp coconut flour, 1/8 tsp baking powder, 1 egg, 1 Tbl liquid (almond milk), 1Tsp honey, 1 Tbl coconut oil, chopped apple and chopped pecans…cook in the waffle iron until done and enjoy!) when I realized..and the hub announced…that I have a blog! I have been super busy at work (excuse) and haven’t written a thing since almost the first day I started, committed to posting every day?! If you are a fellow blogger, I think you understand. I set the bar way too high from the beginning. No way I could ever do anything every single day, except drink coffee, which I am very good at doing every single day. The hub even wrote a song about it…here it is…

If you want sum more…

Now, where was I?….

Oh yeah, feeling sorry for myself…so I bought some candy (of course, it’s Halloween!), dressed up like a crazy, sad. forlorn mother…(here’s proof)

H12015

The sentiment was lost on everyone…am I the only one that feels this way????? No one was willing to defer their diet to eat the candy (right!) so I ate it all myself. Couldn’t really share it with my diabetic patients…what kind of nurse does that?! 

It’s a perfectly cool, leaves falling, misty, breezy October 31st and I feel so much better now…thank you!…you’ve been a tremendous help. 

Oh, by the way, did I mention, the HAWAIIAN VACATION is booked for January 2016?! 

I think I may survive Halloween 2015 after all.

One thought on “Happy Halloween!”

  1. I know what you mean about Halloween- I’m an empty-nester too, and miss this days of making costumes and walking house to house with my son and his buddies while they trick-or-treated. No grandkids yet, so I buy candy to hand out at my home. This year there were only 3 trick-or-treaters! I was bummed, and now have way too much candy sitting in my house.
    I won’t stop preparing for it each year though, and look forward to when I have grand babies to make costumes for!
