Heavens to Betsy, is it October already? My goodness, how has school already been in session for a whole month? And here I am not even started on the kids' Halloween costumes! Suzy Lou is going to be a gypsy and Billy Boo will be a hobo. They will look so adorable and I will make sure I post pictures of the kids. And before you ask, of course I am going to make their costumes from scratch. At first they wanted to just go to the Wal-Mart and buy their costumes. Billy wanted to be something called Iron Man and Suzy wanted to be a Pussy Cat Doll, but after some persuading they finally agreed that my ideas are much better. Cuter for sure, LOL.
Tomorrow the whole family is getting into the mini--van and driving to the local pumpkin patch to choose our jack-o-lantern. It will be so much fun. I have already made candied apples for the road and tomorrow morning I will make some homemade apple cider to put in our family size thermos. Goody! Hopefully hubby will be able to join us this year. Last year he got a tummy ache at the last minute and wasn't able to go. The poor thing had to stay in bed all day while we spent the afternoon admiring the fall colors and going on a hayride. He really wanted to go too, I could tell. But I insisted that he stay at home and take care of himself. He promised he would stay in bed all day even though we would be out having fun. I took down the Honey Do List from the refrigerator and made him pinky swear that he would not get off of that mattress. And when we got home, he was sound asleep in bed just as I knew he would be. The covers were a mess so I knew he had been tossing and turning all day. He must have had a terrible dream with night sweats because the sheets were even damp in a couple of places. And the bedroom had that funny bedroom smell that it gets sometimes. He told me that he stayed in bed the whole day and that when he wanted a drink of water he didn't want to break his promise. So what did he do? He called our neighbor Gloria over to get one for him. (Gloria, you are the sweetest divorcée I know and thank you for dropping what you were doing to come help hubby. And by the way, if your washing machine is still broken you can use ours anytime. Just don't forget your brassiere this time, silly goose!) Anyhoo, this year hubby will be fine for our Autumnal outing, (I wuv you, Hubby! Can't wait for tomorrow!)
Well, I must be going. It's Saturday and I haven't even baked my bread, ironed my sheets, waxed the floor or clipped my coupons yet. Hubby worked late last night so I let him sleep in today and I mowed the lawn for him this morning. Rest up, sweetie! Tomorrow we get to go find a pumpkin, pun'kin! LOL!
