Another day....ANOTHER DAY.
Is it Friday yet, people? This has been one of THE longest weeks ever. I'm mentally, emotionally and physically tired. And my cold is almost (but not fully) gone yet...I've become at ONE with the tissue. I might actually buy STOCK in Kleenex.
Anyway, nothing new to report really. We were supposed to go to Christopher's wake tonight but the other night when Daryl's friend Steve called him (Christopher's uncle), he said there might not be any services because the family is in a bad, bad way (obviously) and could not handle it. We found out there will be a simple memorial service for him tonight in Springfield, Mass so we might go. It depends on how we both feel tonight becuz you are talking at least a forty minute drive each way. I have to be honest and admit to you guys, too, that part of me is so incredibly relieved I don't have to go to an eight year old's wake. I was feeling really anxious about that earlier in the week, seeing this small little coffin, knowing a little boy was inside. It scared the hell out of me. But I also wanted to show my support to Steve and his family AND I didn't want Big D to have to go alone, so I was gonna do it no matter how upsetting the thought was. So now that I know I won't have to, I feel like I can take a deep relieved breath.
Later on tonight, Big D and I are going to sit down to some normalcy. We are going to get a pizza (that ALWAYS cheers me up. I'm a pizza-whore) and carve our two gigantic pumpkins! I want some kick-ass Jack-O-Lanterns on my front porch tomorrow night. In other news, there is FIFTEEN BUCKS worth of Halloween candy sitting on my kitchen table, unopened. (I'm not a freak for candy, we will actually go through all of that with Trick or Treaters tomorrow!) The fact that it is unopened, I am PMS'ing, and it's been sitting there two nights since I bought it? Completely A-MAZING. Let's see if it makes it till tomorrow night. Mmmmm...all my favorites: peanut butter cups, Kit Kats, Skittles (my favorite PMS candy!) and Starburst.
And on that note, I leave you with last year's sweet little Jack-O-Lantern. Enjoy!
