Adieu, Soccer.

Well, the soccer season is over. It ended a little early, since Thing Three broke his foot, but he's on the mend and we will start up again in the Spring.

I actually enjoyed soccer games this time around. I wasn't in WISCONSIN, freezing my toes/butt/face off, and I actually was able to focus on the game itself, and not worry that my son wasn't wearing enough layers/would get frostbite on his nose.

Okay, I'm being silly, but I am just still not used to warmer weather! Take trick-or-treating for instance. In WISCONSIN, all the kids on Halloween look like they are dressed up as Arctic Explorers. Because their fairy/pirate/whatever costume is HIDDEN underneath a big ol' down coat. Because usually by Oct. 31st, it's FREEZING.

Well, this Saturday in North Carolina, when we have our church ward "Trunk Or Treat" it will be a balmy 70 degrees out. I mean, does it get much better than that??? Nope. Not really. :-D

Yesterday was spent running around. Because I, like a complete moron, didn't buy a certain costume when it was in stores. And now, you can't find it anywhere. I've been to four Targets and a Super Walmart, and no luck. That's what I get for procrastination. Thing Three might end up a Soccer Zombie or a Dirty Pirate, because a Luigi costume in size Medium simply doesn't exist anywhere on this side of the U.S..

Sorry, Thing Three.

I always made my own costumes, so stuff like that was never an issue. Note: My mom did NOT make my costumes. I made 'em. If I wanted to be something, it was up to me to make the costume.

Backstage on Broadway gets REAAALLY elaborate for Halloween. It's a lot of fun. I kind of miss the holidays backstage, between Boo'ing, Halloween, Orphan Thanksgiving, Secret Santa, Valentine's Day (everyone in the show is everyone else's valentine), etc., etc.

How lovely not to have to bundle up.

81 degrees today. Either it's freakin' hot or I'm going through "the change"!
