It’s Halloween and all my children are healthy, I think. When they were little, it seemed as though every Halloween at least one of them, if not more, were sick with a fever, cold, sore throat, something. Of course, Charles is just getting over a cold, so maybe he counts? Nah. And I don’t really know whether David is sick or not, but he sounded just fine on Saturday when we talked to him. So I’m going with “It’s Halloween and all my children are healthy.”
Kat was over on Sunday with Miss Munchkin. She had picked up the cutest Halloween costume for Miss Munchkin. A strawberry! It had a little stretchie hat that looked like the hull of a strawberry on top. The suit part was red, with velcro in the back so it went on and off easily. Sleeveless, so it wouldn’t be too warm. I’m hoping Kat will get a picture of Miss Munchkin in it this week, as she didn’t bring my camera with her on Sunday. If (when) I get a pic, I will post it up here. She looked so cute, although I do agree with Shawn that it was also mildly disturbing at the same time!
Miss Munchkin had a new game Sunday. She is now waving all the time as people come and go, or just when she looks around and “discovers” they are still there. Sunday she would crawl from her mommy to me, get on my lap, turn around and wave and grin at her mommy. Great fun!
I added a NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) participant link to my description here on my blog today (check the right description column). I’ve never done NaNo before, never finished a novel before (although I have a couple partially written), so we’ll see. The plot and characters all came to me within about 10 minutes of reading about NaNoWriMo back in September, so I think I was meant to write it. You have to write at least 50,000 words during the month of November. No editing, that comes later! That’s almost 2000 words a day. With all my job hunting for hubby and updating of my website, I’m not sure I’ll have time to write 50,000 words. Probably my posting here will be a bit sparse, so check my progress reports (clicking on the the links to the right) and give me heck in an e-mail if you don’t see an updated word count each day!
