There's a special excitement in the air at my house today. Maybe I should call it ... chaos. Chaos might be the better word. My kids are SO excited about Halloween. They love dressing up and have been planning for this night since last 10.31. It's interesting to hear the ideas they go through, and how many times they are absolutely certain they have decided on a costume. Yet, tonight all of them are wearing things that were just decided within the last 2 weeks or so.

Unfortunately, Daddy won't be available to do the makeup or to help with costumes. That puts the burden on the kids cause everyone knows that I'm really not into this holiday at all. I am a pretty good sport about it, but I could skip it altogether and be very content. Maybe buy a few new good books, spend the evening reading a mystery or watching a suspenseful movie. (Note that I did not say a thriller.)

It's really not the candy part that bothers me. I probably like the candy as much, if not more, than my children. I'm truly a candy fanatic. I just know that it's not that good for me and so I exercise a lot of self control.

Anyway ... I must get back to work. We have to go to the store. David was planning to be a transformer, but due to some unexpected stitches in his hip he can't bend over well. Thus, I'm off to buy a few last minute items. I'll be sure to post pictures later.

I hope you all enjoy your Halloween festivities, whatever they may be. Be safe!

I likened the last mammogram's squishing effect to making pancakes. Today -- crepes.
