All worked up for no reason

So my dad wussed out and didn't come to the party last night. Which is fine I guess.

And I guess he didn't really wuss out. Because Mom was at my house when Dad came by walking the dog. He goes out of his way to try and talk to her and she replies with one-word answers, if she's not busy ignoring him. Seriously, it's like having two kids in my house. But anyway, he left after a couple of minutes with an "I'm an idiot [because I still love her and would take her back in a second, but she will barely give me the time of day]" (I added that last part for clarification). So it was probably for the best that he decided to stay home.

Plus, it was freaking freezing out last night! I went out yesterday at lunch time & it was a beautiful day. 60 degrees out and the sun was shining--it was almost like Fall! When it was time to walk over and pick up the kids, I figured I didn't need a coat on because I was hot with one earlier. Boy was I wrong! In the 2 hours I'd been inside, the temp dropped about 20 degrees and the wind picked up. It was one of those blustery winds that chills you right to your marrow. And it didn't let up until about an hour ago. Cuh-razy!

Which means that it's going to be frigid tonight for Trick-or-Treating. Which means that I am oh-so glad that CB has elected taking the kids across the country side instead of sitting at nice, warm, cozy music practice for church. Hopefully I'll beat them home and have a batch of homemade hot chocolate waiting for them when they get there.

So Happy Halloween, everyone! Stay safe, and if you live up here in north country, stay WARM! :)

Sorry your Dad decided not to come - but it did probably save you some tension and drama.

My goodness it was cold! Even down here I swear I was living in a polar region.

I took my oldest trick or treating and caught a chill for the rest of the night......

Hope you had a fun halloween!
