Will not miss

One thing we will NOT miss once we move out to The Lake?     This:

Handing out Halloween candy to 600 trick-or-treaters.   600.   In our small town.  It. is. insane.

So, we did what every crabby pants would do:   stuck our children out there for the first shift. Rule Boy was diligent in enforcing the "Take ONE piece, please" and Surly Girl grudgingly muttered "Happy Halloween" as if kids were taking her own personal candy.   And yet?  Didn't deter the floods.  The Husband gave out about 300 pieces of candy just between 6-7pm.  We ran out and turned the light off at 7pm...  but there were still trick-or-treaters out there, so we could have given out even more!  

On the other hand, we'll get NO trick-or-treaters out at The Log House, since it is delightfully tucked in the woods.  I suspect I'll feel cranky about that too.  *sigh*

Hope your Halloween was not too hot and not too cold... not too soft and not too hard... just too much fun! How many ghoulies and ghosties descended on you last night?

Perhaps in The Log Home you will get beavers, deer, and an occasional moose coming to your door for treats next year. That would be quite nice, I think. But maybe not.

Is everything okay? It has been a long time since you have posted.

Hi Joe -
Yes, everything's fine here -- The Hubs has worked on things up at the Log House that are not particularly blog-worthy, so I haven't bothered to write about them, but hopefully I'll have progress to report before too long!
Thanks for checking on us! =)
Merry Christmas!
