Is it too early to throw away the uneaten Halloween candy? Seriously. I'd really like to take both the girls' candy buckets and trick-or-treaters' bucket and just pitch it into our already overflowing trash cans. (I get the good wife award of the week for last week since I forgot to take the trash out to the street). We've been eating the candy we'd planned on giving out for almost 2 weeks already and now we have all this other candy and I've already had enough of whiney crazy kids. Of course I'm tired of giving into my sweet tooth as well, that sucker is super strong!
Although, now that I think about it, it might be good to have some sugar around for this month, you know since I've recklessly decided to jump into NaNoWriMo again. Let's see, its already November 2nd and you want to know how many words I've written so far?
Zero. Zilch. Nada.
(I know theres a movie with that line in it, a kids one I'm pretty sure, any guesses?) Why haven't I written? Well, Sundays are busy around here anyways and to be honest I wasn't sure what I wanted to write. I'm still not 100% sold on what I'm going to spend a month typing about. I think I need to figure it out today, though.
Back to the candy, though. Halloween was good. Not too busy and just enough friends and family. I made a super yummy chili (chili for some reason has become traditional Halloween fare at our home) and then the guys took the kids out on the street while my mom and I put our feet up and had a relaxing chat. Of course I jumped up every 4 minutes or so to hand out candy, but I'm not complaining. That is less candy we have in our home. I'm a generous candy hander-outer, too, as in I give out handfuls to the lucky children brave enough to venture down our cul de sac. We don't usually have many kids ring our bell--I think it has something to do with the houses on either side of us being dark most years and kids being too lazy to walk down to our lone lit up house.
