The Great Costume Debate and Other News

With halloween and their party looming, we have been attempting to get the grandgirls to settle on what they want for costumes. Originally they wanted to dress as the Disney Princesses, but then there was a fracas over who got to be Belle. Since then they’ve waffled among a host of other cartoon characters but settled on nothing. I was getting desperate since I make their costumes and time is in short supply now days.

Yesterday they called with the final, final decision. Jazz wants to be a bride, not a scary bride, a real bride. Jules wants to be a frog. Bri wants to be a goth bride. I asked Bri if she knew what “goth” meant. She said no, so I asked why she wanted to be a goth bride. Her answer, typically, was because Allie (her cousin) was one last year. Bri will be a witch. How can you suitably portray your character if you dont’ even know what your character is? She’s okay with that, as long as the hat has feathers.

Still no word on my part in the play. They’re pretty busy up there with their current play – The Ladies of the Sacred South – the playwrite is coming to visit the November performances, so I’m sure that’s all they’re thinking about right now. Not how to keep their standing tradition of including ANYONE who comes out for the Christmas play a part. At least Christmas Tree #4.

Having been home babysitting Pap after his surgery, yesterday was my first day back at the day job for almost a week. You could wallpaper a room with the sticky notes left on my desk. I didn’t even listen to the voice mail, too scary. Oi. Back to it.

Welcome to My Neighborhood!

Shortly after I learned to use a spoon, I learned to use a pencil. Crippled by shyness as a child, I found that the things I couldn't say out loud, I could say with a pen, and then a typewriter. The shyness was overcome with education and age...but the need to write has never left me.
