I’ve been pretty busy lately so I found myself up at midnight last night trying to put together Halloween treats for the school’s “Harvest” party today. (Harvest and Halloween both start with H, you know.) I’m not sure how it got to be this time of year already, but no one checks with me first, so I had to get it in gear and ready myself for the big night. Luckily I’d already bought a few bags of candy to pass out, so we were in fairly good shape to head out for trick or treating. There didn’t seem to be too many people out this year and about the same goes for those passing out candy, but I’m not sure that mattered, as Maddy came back with a full sack of candy. She weighed it and said it was about two pounds. But that’s on an Ikea scale, so it’s anyone’s guess. Let’s just say it’s A LOT of candy. Further statistical analysis of the loot is pending. It’s going to be candy overload, I’m sure, because we didn’t even give away all of the candy we’d bought. So if anyone is in the market for some mini Jolly Rancher sticks, Twizzlers, Milk Duds and PayDay bars … come on over.
In other news, I’m trying to bring this blog back from the dead. Sure, I have some auto-fed stuff in here and that’s good, too, but I would like to get in a better habit of updating and capturing all the things I’m thinking about or doing. So starting tomorrow (November 1), I’ll be participating in National Blog Posting Month (aka NaBloPoMo). Did you know there was such a thing? Or did you just assume that every month was National Blog Posting Month? Because really, who doesn’t love blogging? This means I’ll be posting something every day in the month of November. Sounds pretty simple, right? Well … it may be a bigger challenge for me considering my spotty record here. Can I do it? Will anyone care? Is anyone even out there reading this? Only time will tell. I’m not sure what I’ll be writing about. Some NaBloPoMo’ers are setting a theme or a schedule of posts for each day of the week. I think I’ll just be playing it by ear, but if you have suggestions, let’s hear ‘em.
