And quicker than you could say bad hair day, my hair looked as if I had stuck my finger in a light socket. It was crazy large, frizzy and wavy. I had skimped on the straightening time this morning, though it wouldn't have mattered. The humidity would have made quick work of my efforts anyway. I began entering doorways sideways. I think I could have easily starred in a horror movie.
Now we're home and we're into day one of token usage. So far I have removed two tokens from naughty boys. . .but the day is still young. My hair is back in a (giant) ponytail and I am getting ready to get down to business. The business of dressing children in Halloween costumes to go beg for candy from the neighbors. We will be debuting a garden gnome, a Pokemon trainer (in a costume I find rather lacking), a football player and some sort of Kingdom Hearts character. My oldest is hanging out with a friend, because soliciting neighbors for candy feels a bit too juvenile for a 13 year old. We are planning to use umbrellas to ward off the deluge and then just hope for the best. It's warm, the kids are young, and hey - free candy is taking a bit more effort this year.
