Last night was a blast. A complete and utter success! Awesome and Fabulous are a couple of words that are not nearly strong enough to describe our Halloween evening.
Halloween started easy enough, it was an early dismissal day at school, so when I picked May up, it was “game on”. We goofed around, taking pics of some random costumes we had gotten at the Super Saturday Sale at Goodwill for a song.
By the time we finished goofing around, we realized it was only 1:30 pm, so we goofed around some more. May wanted to use my computer to watch some videos, so I let her. I figured she was watching those One Direction guys, but she wasn’t. She was doing her own version of “Frugal Halloween”, and I’m thinking she did awesome!!
Our friends across the street loaned May their Freddy Kruger costume, but there was a last minute “I think I’m going to be something else”, and well, Sir Hots-A-Lot didn’t really want to be a vampire in make up anyways.
I guess I should tell you the plan, it was a great plan, but like all well made plans, there are always things to consider like “I don’t wanna be Henry VIII, I don’t wanna wear tights”. So I got him a cape and fangs for Dracula, but more last minute changes ended up with the ghost of Anne Boleyn hanging out with Freddy Kruger, the Zuman, and Mysterious Cowboy instead.
Halloween was a blast. I haven’t had this much fun since childhood. We sat on the porch making fog, blasting the spooky CD, and laughing a lot. A couple hours later we got our first couple of trick or treaters. An hour later, we got two more for a total of four. The news was calling for bad storms, so I’m guessing a lot of kids stayed in. Most of the surrounding counties postponed Halloween until tonight, so maybe more will show up tonight. Either way, even with only four trick or treaters, we had a blast. We spent an evening with family, on the porch, having fun, and didn’t even miss watching TV or being on the computer.
Anyways, Halloween is over, well, until tonight when we may have an instant replay just in case there were some kids who didn’t get to go because of weather last night.
On a serious note, today starts Diabetes Awareness Month. I would like take this time to let you know that while Diabetes is a life sentence, it doesn’t have to be a death sentence. I control my diabetes by controlling what I eat and my activity level. Two and a half years ago, I was given a second chance at life and started waging war on my diabetes. I want to let you know that you don’t have to suffer through the complications of diabetes, like me and many others on the same journey, you too can wage your own war on your diabetes. Your meter is your best weapon in your fight, use it often to see which foods are helping and which foods are harming, don’t let Type 2 Diabetes take away your quality of life.
