Happy Halloween! (That’s the trolley bag I made for for Jackson to use trick-or-treating. He’s going to be Daniel Tiger, a character from Mr. Rogers Neighborhood who has a popular spin-off series on PBS Kids; I’ll update later when I have a photo of Jackson in costume).
Enjoy the festivities, and don’t forget Daylight Savings Time ends this weekend at 2 AM Sunday morning (sob). It’s gonna be dark for the next five months, which is totally depressing, but the good news is we get an extra hour this weekend. What are you gonna do with yours? I’m going to be painting. Saturday night Drew and I have a sitter, and Drew and I will be spending the evening in our new place having a painting party for two. (We’re painting four rooms, though I’m not sure we’ll get to all of them tomorrow night). I’m gonna make margaritas, and we’re gonna order tacos and try to make it fun even though, let’s be honest, there are about a million other ways we’d rather spend a Saturday night. But when we’re done (and we won’t finish it all on Saturday, but we hope to make a big dent), our new place will look great (um, hopefully) and be ready for the big move in another week and a half. Ooh, a fresh start. I love fresh starts.
