Is it Halloween Yet???
I want to decorate and dress up, and trust me that is a BIG deal. I haven't dressed up for Halloween since I was 12. I feel silly in real life more often than I would like to admit, so why inflict that on myself voluntarily ... but this year it's different.
Maybe it is that Larkin understands what all the fuss is about this year. Maybe it is that Scot gets to trick-or-treat with us this year. Maybe it is that we always want the one thing in life we can't have ... this year, for me, it is a house to decorate.
We are currently in the process of moving. It has been a roller coaster ride of grown-up decisions and full blown toddlerish meltdowns (and they haven't all been Larkin's). I want this move to be over.
I want to put up my orange and black and spooky.
On a different note: this week's weight loss total is 31.8, and this week it was all Scot. 68.2 pounds to go. I am hoping that in another month we will reach the half way mark. 50 pounds! that will be a huge, and ironically we will not be ... huge that is :)
Bring on October! I am ready for sweaters and pumpkins and chocolate and ghosts and a new house and bran muffins ... what? I like bran muffins.
