What I'm Doing On Halloween

Happy Halloween!

Here are things that I plan on doing today:

1. Order pizza for dinner. I'm not cooking on a holiday.

2. Remind Natalie to say thank you. Sometimes she gets overexcited when a wad of chocolate is dumped in her bag. I understand. I'd get excited too. But still. Say thank you.

3. Dodge families who feel the need to take over the ENTIRE sidewalk. Do people not understand that you're supposed to go single file so people can pass? Maybe it's just Oklahoma.

4. Pass out candy when we return. I was going to leave a bowl out with a PLEASE TAKE ONE sign. But then someone said that a teenager took the entire contents of her bowl--PLUS HER BOWL--so everyone will have to wait until we get back to get our delicious Jelly Bellies, Twix bars, and M&Ms. (No weird candy here.)

5. Go through the children's bags. Toss out the weird candy. Take the ones I want, because I gave them life, so it's my right.

6. Proceed to eat the candy as I watch trash television. Kendra On Top is on tonight. Her husband might have messed around with a transsexual.

Hope your night is a fun one. (To see more of my kids in their Halloween costumes, click here!)

Things That Annoy Me Thursday: Camo Gear Everywhere

When you're a military spouse, this is never a good thing.

Camo gear. All over the living room floor.

My heart always squeezes when I see it, because it means he's leaving. Again.

And then.

Then when he packs the helmet with his BLOOD TYPE on it, you worry.

"It's a good thing," Tom assures me, because I always pale when I see it. "If something happens, they can help quickly."

Sometimes I think, "Why can't he have a job where he doesn't need to have his blood type written everywhere?"

But Tom wouldn't be happy in a job where nothing happens.

I always hope he'll be okay. He has to be.

I always hope time passes quickly so then he's home again.

Camo gear. All over the living room floor.

I hate the sight of it.

Hey, It's Okay Tuesday!

I got this idea from Glamour magazine. They have a section called Hey, It’s Okay and will list a bunch of things to be okay about. You're welcome to join in and do something like this on your blog. Doesn't have to be on a Tuesday either. Just make sure you link up and that the post you link up is a Hey, It's Okay Post. Grab the button if you'd like!

--To love watching My Cat From Hell. It makes me thankful that my cat isn't insane.

--To not be sad that Honey Boo Boo was cancelled. I watch a lot of trash reality shows, but that one was too much for me.

--To have guest posted on The Inklings of Life here. I wrote about why it's okay to take Halloween candy from your kids.

--To wonder what Renee Zellwiger did to her face. Well, I know what she did. Plastic surgery. But still. It's a shock to see the change.

--To not feel sorry for Monica Lewinsky. She made a speech on how she was called names after her scandal. Well gee, maybe don't mess with a married man?

--To not care that Callie and Arizona will most likely break up on Grey's Anatomy. I've never been a fan of Arizona's character.

--To miss Grimace. You know that giant purple thing from McDonalds?

--To like Tommy's expression whenever we carve pumpkins. The sensation freaks him out.
