OK maybe not TOO spooky. Friday evening, I was exhausted. I don’t even remember what we did except that the kids started watching Angry Bird 2 and I fell asleep. Honestly, I have a bad habit of forgetting what we do on Fridays; end of the week and my body just says “relax”.
Saturday morning, I woke kind of early because my husband and oldest got up early to get a 3 mile run in. I went ahead and hit the store before games. We were at the flag fields from 9 until 12:30. Luckily, we got a bit of a break before more activities. So I cleaned and took a nap. Around 3:45 we went up the road to our friend’s house for a low country boil. Good times! The only problem, I guess, is that half the folks were from their work and the other half are the girl scout families. They’re fine and all, if not just a bit boring. But the two groups never really mingled. Oh well. I had some amazing food, good beer, and enjoyed it. We went home by 7:30 to get ready to go back out!
Our friend who helps with our general home improvement tasks (because he’s handy like that) made a haunted house out of his garage so we went to a get-together out there, all dolled up in our costumes. I admit to being a little afraid; I don’t do well with jump out type things. But they did an AMAZING job in a smaller space and each room was well detailed and each “jump out” was tame enough. He had a couple neighbor guys helping and they just did such an amazing job on it. I was super impressed. We had a good time there; I was a little overfull from food and drink but sometimes, you gotta do it.
Sunday was detox day. I got up late (8:30) and started on chores and making lasagna for lunch. Watched football a while then took Elliot to get some new pants and some other various Target items, then Isaac and I ran 3 miles. The men-folk in my house are all training for the Thanksgiving day 10k and I am training Dakota for her first 5k. But Isaac missed the Saturday 3 miler so it was my turn to take him. He ran it so well too – no complaining. He did the 10k two years ago but hasn’t done more than a 5k in recent times. I love when we all get back into running, truthfully. We had a light dinner then we all watched Sleepy Hollow, which I personally always liked but Ash always thought it was lackluster for a Tim Burton film. To each their own. I told the kids they had to watch a semi-scary movie at least one time before Halloween. LOL.
It’s a fall/Halloween theme so here ya go: one of each.
This one is right up my alley, you know. I was a HUGE GnR fan back in the day.
Helloween is a particularly appropriate band for Halloween, don’t you think??
