We decided to go vote Friday night. It was a long line. If you're curious, this is the guy I voted for.
When I joined Curves, I'd made a promise to myself that I would participate in any kind of event they sponsored or participated in. Saturday was the first time I had to make good on that promise. They were sponoring a 5 mile walk to support breast cancer research. I'll be honest and say that I didn't do the whole five miles. I did about 3 1/2 maybe 4 miles. It was enough. My hamstrings are KILLING me and my feet aren't very happy with me either. Must get better sneakers.
Spent the afternoon cleaning.
Saturday evening Kyle's school had its annual fall festival. I had volunteered to help for the first hour with his classroom's booth. They sponsored a cakewalk. The cakewalk was a cakewalk!
Last year, his classroom sponsored a fortune telling booth. I had no idea what my responsibilities would be. I spent an hour dressed up in a cloak and silly hat making up kids futures. "When you grow up you might become a...." Sometimes I could get it right on the nose based on their costume other times I'd be way off base. It was fun yet incredibly nerve wracking. This years booth was so much easier and one of the most popular.
In an attempt to cut short the "Mom I need more tickets" whine I gave Kyle $20 and told him that it was his and there was no more. Any money he didn't spend he could keep. He walked out of there with a cake he won in the cakewalk and $5 in his pocket.
Will missed out on the fun. He was at home waiting for his dad to come into town.
Fall back to normal time! I HATE Daylight Savings time and think they need to do away with it. I spend all summer feeling like I haven't gotten enough sleep.
Sunday morning was my day to go do laundry. Will had promised me he would do my share of the laundry if I took his car to get inspected. Before I could get it inspected the darn thing died. So we are down to one car at the moment and I'm still stuck with my days of laundry :( .
Kyle and I spent the afternoon making a Jack-O-Latern, roasted pumpkin seeds and a pumpkin pie. The pie was actually made from a real "pie" pumpkin. It's pretty tasty but not as sweet as one made from the canned pumpkin mix. It also takes a bit more work so I think in the long run we'll stick to the canned stuff.
We did not have a single Trick-or-Treater. I think, next year I'm not even going to worry about the candy.
