Boy, it is chilly and gloomy outside today! It’s almost like there is something kind of eerie going on around here…
Oh yeah, Happy Halloween everyone!
For some reason, today does not feel like the usual Halloween Day for me.
Maybe it is because we are living in a hotel and are not surrounded by fall scents and decorations. Maybe it is because we haven’t carved any pumpkins. Maybe it is because I have not been able to make anything pumpkiny since before we moved. Maybe it is because we don’t have any dynamic duo costumes to put on or any candy to hand out to the adorable (and sometimes scary) trick-or-treaters… or…
Maybe it is because I am saddened by the aftereffects of Hurricane Sandy on the upper east coast.
Being from Florida, I can relate to how scary it is to know a hurricane is coming. Hurricanes Andrew and Irene hit pretty hard a few years back, and I know we all remember the devastation that was Hurricane Katrina onto New Orleans. No matter how much we prepare, however, no one is ever really ready to deal with the losses and damage after such a shockingly catastrophic storm.
To those of you who have been affected by “Frankenstorm” as people have been calling it, I am so very sorry! The most upset we have seen in Michigan is a drop in temperature and a few tall waves on the lakes. Our thoughts and prayers are with you!
Looking around, I feel like I am not the only one who does not feel exactly Halloween-ey.
I am beginning to think Roadie might be more anxious than we are to get into our new condo. Good news! We get the keys today! Whoooo hoooo! Did you hear that girls?
I said… we are getting the keys to our new home today!
I guess I am the only one who is jumping up and down over here.
Poor things! Ever since we have been in the midst of moving, all three of them have become prettttty lazy. The cats sleep about twenty hours of the day, and Roadie sleeps about half of it. The cause is boredom, I’m sure.
I am crossing my fingers that we get set up and settled into our new condo by the first snowfall. I promise it will all be worth it, kiddos!
For those of you with power, enjoying a nice (hopefully not too chilly) Halloween morning, I hope it’s a good one for you! Stay safe and have a wonderful day!
Oh, and Roadie says Muwahahahaha.
