Well, I was tempted, but here it is October 31 and I just don’t see how I could possibly do NaNoWriMo again, though I was mighty tempted. Kevin and I are going away for a week soon, and between that and the auction on the 21st, there just isn’t going to be enough time. Maybe next year, if I’m still walking this earth!
Speaking of October 31, it’s trick-or-treat night here in New Bloomfield. I bought five bags of candy, 108 pieces total, and was out in 34 minutes. I can hear the kids still parading up and down the sidewalk, but they’re passing me by (I put a sign on the door that we are out of candy). It amazes me that some parents will take their six-month-old babies out in a stroller and collect candy for them. Then there are the twenty somethings out there collecting, too. So when I run out of candy, I don’t feel bad. There aren’t even 50 children in this town let alone 108! People drive many miles to come here because it’s a pretty generous town. I’m not just quite as generous as I used to be, I guess!
