Halloween: Friday Five

My Friday Five for the holiday:

1. Son is dressing up as Dr. Horrible. Friend is dressing up as Captain Hammer. There will be no freeze gun or boxing gloves, but lots of singing, I’m sure.

2. I will be going with the usual question…Mom. I’ve added a few more wrinkles to the costume, I think, but–you know–in the dark, probably no one will notice!

3. I’ve been on a committed trying-to-lose-weight program and today saw the 10-pounds-offΒ number on the scale. This should, hopefully, be motivation for not eating ALL the Butterfingers that come home.

4. There are only two things I miss since our move to the mountains. Pizza delivery and trick-or-treaters. I’ve never been big on the costumes and parties, but I did used to love handing out candy to the little guys. And, of course, buying a few too many bags & having to deal with leftovers.

5. Usually, our October is warm, warm, warm, with all of us thinking our kids will roast in their costumes. Then, a day before Halloween, the temps drop and we’re trying to convince those kids that a coat over said costume will NOT look stupid. This year, it’s been cold for weeks, and son is happy his costume includes sweat pants, a jacket, and boots that are so big he’s wearing fleece slippers inside. And the welding gloves, of course.

Happy Halloween, everybody!

      Oh, I was a hobo for SO many years as a kid. I don’t know why we always had flannel shirts & bandannas aroun the house, but we did. Hope your hobo & bat fairy share their candy with you. πŸ™‚


  1. This was my son’s first Halloween. Not only were there no other kids out (my neighbors got a total of five), but most of the houses were dark.


    Then again, that only means there’s less candy for the little guy (and me) to get sick on.

    I hope you had a great evening — wrinkles and all πŸ˜‰

      Oh, well. Maybe there’s a street somewhere in your neighborhood where the kids go–definitely true around here. Maybe for next year? πŸ™‚


  2. We had 44 trick-or-treaters, according to my DH who counted the candy left over. Not bad, but we still have too many left – bad when you’re diabetic. Congrats on losing 10 pounds. That’s what I’m aiming to do, before things get out of hand.

      44 isn’t bad. But, yes, too much candy. The 10 pounds hasn’t been fast, but it’s been steady, so I’m feeling better about this than any other “diets” I’ve done in the past. I think, honestly, it’s a matter of finding the right # of calories for me, plus a little extra thyroid. πŸ™‚

      Joylene, Thanks for stopping by. Did you mean for this to be a comment on the interview post, so you’d be entered into the contest? πŸ™‚
