…no not the TV show, but my new office. Last Thursday, I receive the keys to my new office and this weekend my daughter went with me to clean and move things in. When I get the word to move, I’ll be ready. Dr. Lovely Daughter forgot that she had agreed to help me clean and didn’t bring appropriate clothing. That sounds suspicious to me. She did help me..after all. But, I had to remind her of the constant combing of her “Crystal Gayle” hair when she was a child. I also brought up the fact that I spent 5 million dollars on raising her and her brother. And then I whipped out the big gun, I reminded her of the womb experience of 9 months and 2 weeks and the fact that she took her sweet time being born. (Just kidding...about the 5 million.)
I hope (and am praying) that I will do a good job as school social worker. Middle School kiddos are a different breed from High School kiddos. I will be serving both populations. One thing they have in common is they severely want to be accepted by their peers and would like to preserve their dignity during the course of their growing up years. Me too.
I’m not big on Halloween meaning… I don’t decorate, but I do open my doors to all the kids who want to show off their costumes and collect the treats. My treats are less about candy and more about trinkets and toys.
Last year, I had over 20 tricks or treaters. This year: Eight. Four of WITCH were relatives.
I long for little pumpkins, cowboys, and princesses without blood dripping down their necks. Is that so wrong?
What was your favorite Halloween costume as a child?
