Yesterday the kids and I made the first of what I’m sure will be MANY trips to the local Halloween store. Annie and James still love being scared by all the creepy displays (I wasn’t blown away by the offerings this year, but there were still a few good ones). James seems pretty set on being a Minecraft character for Halloween, which is great because I already have the costume! Thanks, day-after-Halloween sales! Annie is undecided. She always has to be something scary, and right now she’s waffling between being the haunted Annabelle Doll from the movies or being a scary clown. I’m not exactly thrilled by either option but I’m glad she’s still into Halloween. It’s my favorite day of the year!
Around The ‘Net
~Did you guys know that “worm on a string” is a thing again? That crappy little pipe cleaner thing we used to get at school carnivals is now “super cool.” YOUTHS ARE BAFFLING.
~Speaking of baffling, scrunchies are also a thing again. When I was talking to some of the girls on Annie’s softball team about how I had scrunchies when I was their age, one of the girls looked at me incredulously and said, “They had SCRUNCHIES when you were a kid?! No way.” Damn, that cut deep.
~I hate paper straws, so I finally caved and bought a set of reusable silicone straws. I like them so far, they’re easy to clean and I’m not afraid they’re going to chip my teeth like the reusable metal straws. And you can chew on them, which Mike likes!
Happy Sunday, everyone!
