…in 5 years. Can you believe it? Yup, yup, yup! It’s that time of the year already! Make sure you lock the doors, hide the candy, and remember to keep your kids from bouncing off the walls! Every time around this year, I always enjoy watching the little trick-or-treaters come up to the house dressed up as witches and goblins, ghouls and zombies! Makes me feel like joining them out on the streets…except it’s been so long since I’ve celebrated Halloween, really.
I miss dressing up! Miss putting on the makeup, painting my face, finding the perfect costume! Of course, I wouldn’t do anything to look scary. I’m more into the cute-girly look even though I may not look at it. Can you see me as a princess? (No, I’m not posting a picture for you either.) But I’ll probably be the one sitting in a chair staring at the kids that come to the door. I can scare them, I swear…without a costume.) And I get to curl up with my favorite Halloween movie, Nightmare Before Christmas.
I used to love going to Halloween parties and oh boy oh boy, the delicious treats! Yeah I miss those. Now I actually have to make ‘em if I want them. *frown* Anywho, this year is going to be special. I actually missed out on Halloween the past 5 years. Can you believe it? With all the traveling I did, I never got to actually enjoy passing out candy to the little trick-or-treaters or running wild on the streets (Yeah…I’m too old for that but it’s so much fun watching kids.) But this year…
I have no choice. I’m actually stuck in one place (Okay, not stuck, but I had to put the travel bug to sleep with some drugs.) I’m truly looking forward to the day! Fall has been around for the past few weeks and I can feel Old Man Winter wanting to make his presence known, so hopefully he’ll hold off until all the candy in my bowl is gone.
So, what are your plans for Halloween? Doing anything exciting? Recovering from the weekend? Or are you dressing up too?
