To all who celebrate, please be safe today/tonight. Make sure to have a designated driver if you plan on drinking. It’s a fun day to celebrate, but I’m sure you and your loved ones want to make it home safe. I know that everyone else does as well.
Have a fun and safe Evening! Keep your furbabies safe and away from opening doors.
Last night was the pumpkin carving party at Don’s house. Here are the wonderful pumpkins that were carved. It was a fun time for all.
I started out dressing like a Vampire, but the wig cap/wig gave me a headache. My fitted Vampire teeth were a pain in the mouth! lol
So, ended up as a Witch. The lace on my hat is over 90 years old. It was my Nana’s. There is also a black rose with it. This is my favorite Witch hat. Yes, I have more than one. 😛
My fabulous make-up was done by Steph. She made me look damn good for a 51 year old. lol
Even with the pain, I had so much fun! I have let fear, being self-conscious, and embarrassment from my illness stop me from doing so many things. I know there will be times when my condition will keep from doing certain things. It makes me sad to not be able to be ‘normal’. One thing is for sure; I am blessed with a support team that always has my back. They never give up on me, even when I give up on myself. I am one of the lucky ones!
The past few years I haven’t done the Halloween thing. Bums me out as Halloween is a favorite day for me. I used to always dress up and hand out candy. Scaring kids was and added plus for me. 😛
Tomorrow is going to be so exciting for me. My former nurse and now my BFF Don is having a pumpkin carving contest party at his home. I’M GOING TO DRESS UP!! It’s been so long since getting out my Halloween gear; dress, wigs, jewelry, makeup, etc. Steph and her crew are going, as well as my family. I can’t wait to meet Don’s friends and make some new friends in the process. It’s the little things in life that make so happy. I won’t be doing any carving myself, as knives and me don’t go together very well.
So, YAY for me!! I’m finally getting out and doing things again. Taking baby steps, or rolls. lol
If you are not able to care for an animal for LIFE… DO NOT use animals as gifts!
Did you know that March-April is the busiest time for animal dumping at shelters? When the ‘cuteness’ wears off and puppies act like puppies, they end up back in the shelters. Puppies potty in the house, puppies chew anything they can find, puppies are work! If you are not ready for this commitment buy a stuffed toy for your kids. Same goes for kittens and all other animals. REMEMBER, in life shit happens, animals may get sick too, are you ready or able for vet bills? If not, get the stuffed toy!
Be a good responsible person; if you can’t love, teach, or care for an animal and make them part of your family, DO NOT GIVE animals as presents! Furbabies are family and should be treated as such!
Well, not really. I was born in San Mateo and lived in San Jose for a bit. Do you know the way to San Jose? I do!
My heart will be in San Francisco as my dd [darling daughter] is on her way there with her HS Band.
She’s a traveling fool. Last year she went to NY and now SF. By the time she graduates she’ll be well travelled. We hope every year we can afford to send her on these band trips, as these are the times she will always remember. I so hope she has a fabulous time. She needs the break, and this is just what the doctor ordered!
Can’t wait for some pics and to see what she brings me back… hmmmm, she’d better get me a gift! 😉
