One day to go until H-DAY.

I’m trying that out.  …Not working, huh?  Yeah, probably not working. Anyway, got the glow-in-the-dark skeleton in the mail and finally up (with any luck, it’s not actually radioactive or anything). All the candy has been gotten, and not a single bag opened ahead of time!  The eldest is going on a field trip tomorrow (which I’m chaperoning, for my sins), so I had to run to the supermarket, but I think that everything’s ready to go.

Although my kids are probably expecting me to take the car to school tomorrow. Which I would, except that then I can’t give the crossing guards their Halloween candy. Full-sized Hershey bars. It’s really hard to go wrong with that*.

*I am a firm believer in the value of regularly bribing every teacher, administrator, and flunky that comes in contact with my children. You never know when you’re going to be called into school to deal with an ‘incident,’ after all.  And if I learned anything from my parents, it’s this: when it comes to school-based disputes, fair fights are for suckers.

      The officials have delayed our occasion to next weekend, on account of half the state losing power for two days straight. Not that that will stop some people….
