I can’t help but think how I had some kind of opportunity with so much traffic to my blog, but other than people just reading what I had to say, what more is there?
So the first non-soapbox, non-meaningful purpose post is bound to be kind of a flop. At least i’m calling it out early.
Today is my last day as a 38 year old. I’m actually not at all freaked out by turning 39 tomorrow. If I dwell too long, I can start to feel panicky that it’s the last year of my 30’s, but I try not to do that…. i only go there when my son is talking “Minecraft” or my daughter is on the 87th detail of the tea party, or my husband starts talking about a budget.
Other than that, I avoid that thought. So for 23 minutes of my day, i’m free of panic. Silver lining.
It has become tradition for me to decorate the house on my birthday weekend for Halloween. I figure if people can put up Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving, I’m cool for a month+ of Halloween spirit. Its has to be worth the effort it takes to unpack it all, unwind all the lights, plug in all the plugs, dust off all the unintended spider webs, etc etc.
Who knows, maybe this year I’ll actually have a plan for it all and not just toss it up willy nilly!
Happy nearly Halloween everyone! Put up those witches and spiders and enjoy the fruits of your labor 🙂
