44 bags of candy handed out
3 trick-or-treaters: a pirate (Susie, and a very cute pirate she was), a black widow spider, and a reluctant teenage bat (Brian, who realized at the last minute he wanted some candy)
1 mom (that would be, uh, moi) who kept all the short, chewy strawberry Twizzlers for herself
8 costumed neighbors who attended our candy-swap party after the main event
All in all, it was your typical Halloween around here. We're still eating candy, although the girls are being remarkably selfish about their KitKats this year. You know, you think you're raising them right, and then reality just up and smacks you in the head.
But that's okay, I just wrote them both out of the will.
|Just add some bicycles, and this is pretty much us.|
Like I said, STRESS.
So, earlier this week, Larry asked me to show him all the mini-camper websites and even appeared to be listening to me as I explained what I thought were the pros and cons of each one. Then he spent the next few days doing his typical obsessive thing of comparing and evaluating absolutely every detail about these things.
Me, I just look at the pictures.
So whose method is better? I can't say, but I can tell you that we both pretty much came to the same conclusion as to which camper might best fit our needs. And my way left me more time to eat the Halloween candy. Nuff said.
Of course, all this research was completely theoretical, since we don't happen to have $12 - 20K lying around right now to throw at our camper problems. But, hey, we all need our fantasies, don't we?
