Ugh! More Rain!

It feels like it's been raining here for weeks!  I can't take these gray miserable days cooped up in the house. 

The boys were/are sick-- just like me and Wayne.  They coughing is horrible but at least my nose is free and clear again.  Both boys have had slight fevers but no other flu symptoms.  Too many people I know right now have H1N1 and it's freaking me out.  It doesn't help that I've been eyeball deep in zombies lately-- things like I am Legend full of "infected humans."  I keep thinking about Stephen King's The Stand and how most of the human populace was wiped out by a super flu.  I'm so optimistic and full of sunshine, aren't I? 

Tomorrow is supposed to be trick or treat night here.  I really don't understand the whole idea of scheduling trick or treating on a day that isn't Halloween and for only two hours.  On a work/school night.  When Halloween is on a Saturday.  Pennsylvania is so weird.  I'm sure it has some kind of bizarre religious reasoning behind it.  Can you feel my rolling my eyes? I still don't have costumes or candy for the munchkins either.  Joey wants to be a ghost and that's easy enough.  Andy wants to be Lightning McQueen.  Of course, when I asked him a month ago, he said it was okay for me to give his LMQ costume to one of my friends.  Now, he'll hear nothing of being something else.  So I am in a bit of a bind.

Saturday, they'll be at Steve's for trick-or-treating there.

I'm tired and feeling down because of the weather.  It's tough to get motivated for anything.  

The past few days, I've been working on making ornaments for the Christmas tree at Andy's school.  I have a Cricut cartridge with script school subjects and icons.  I've been cutting them out and mounting them on a white background then totally glittering the word.  They're cute on the table.  I hope they look cute as an ornament.   I need to go over to the school and straighten the tree out.  It is looking a little bent and beat up in the storage space.

Bleh.

Lightning McQueen
I feel your pain. I've checked the Disney Store, Target, Walmart, 3 different Halloween stores, and the Craigslist for-sale ads. Nobody has the Lightning McQueen foam car on suspenders. I refuse to pay upwards of $35-$40 on Ebay for what is now a collector's item. Andy will go with me to a Halloween store on Friday and he'll have to pick something.

For Joey? I got a nice 200 count white sheet at Target for $4. I'll get a KISS face painting kit to finish his look.

Re: Lightning McQueen
What's really funny about that is that I got the car last year on clearance from the Disney website for like $8. I wonder if I can ask Meg for it back without causing a problem?

I feel the same way you do about the flu. I'm becoming so paranoid. At this point, I'm wondering if Jacob will get sick from the candy wrappers of strangers. I guess spraying his trick or treat candy with Lysol is out of the question? (just kidding sorta) o_O

We all had the same crud with the coughing. It lasted forever. I'm secretly hoping it was H1N1 so that we can be done with that, but I'm 95% sure it was just a nasty cold. I'm sorry to hear you all are still feeling crummy.

The Stand has stuck with me for years. I've thought of it with the H1N1 flu, too.

If I had bought Halloween candy, I'd have eaten it already.

I hope you get to feel better soon.
