Good Day

Good doctor report today. I had lost 10 pounds since Sept. 28th and my blood pressure was normal, kidney function normal....still working on the blood sugar but it is improving. I'll do another A1C3 in January and hopefully that will be down as well.
Sooooo I'm on the right track and definitely feeling a lot better. It's amazing how a few simple changes can make you feel so much better.

Our town has decided that the official trick-or-treat night will be Friday night because of the evening football game on Saturday. It will be safer for the kiddos. I never know how much candy to purchase because I never know if I'll have any trick-or-treaters. One year I had none and the next about 40. What ever candy I don't give away I'll just bring to work.

Halloween reminded me of another story about my ex-husband. We were about 26 at the time and Halloween was approaching and someone gave me an old woman mask. It was a full head mask with long white hair. She was a rough looking old gal with a wart on her chin etc. Our kids were in kindergarten at the time and since my husband worked nights he slept during the day. One day close to Halloween I decided I'd play a joke on him. While the girls were at school I put the old woman mask on my head and stripped naked and crawled into bed and snuggled up close behind Jim. It didn't take long before he began to "stir" so to speak and then he rolled over toward me. He slowly opened his eyes and then started screaming like a girl. He flew himself off the bed and landed on all fours between the bed and the wall. He just kept yelling something like, "Oh God, Oh God". I almost panicked because I immediately thought he was going for his gun. Thank goodness he always kept it in the closet on the top shelf. I didn't know whether to run or freeze. I ripped off the mask and shoved it under the covers. I started yelling louder than Jim saying, "What in the world is wrong with you?" Somehow I was able to convince him that he must have had a nightmare.

Funny, funny story. You are a really playful sort aren't you? Did you check to make sure it was your husband and not a buddy he was letting crash at your place? You do have a reputation of stripping for strangers. Tehehe

Get rolls of coins for your trick or treaters or raid your piggy bank. Mix the coin up in a bowl and let them keep what they can grab with one hand. What you don't hand out, put back in the bank. I loved cash givers when I was a kid.
