So shywon's mention that she is making a Halloween costume made me think of starting another thread. So shy--what are you making? It is to wear to school or a party? I know my kids used to love it if their teachers dressed in up school.
My dance school has dances (informal ones for practice) on Friday nights and they said that the one nearest Halloween we could dress up--they didn't do that last year. I am tentative about that--I don't want to dress up unless other people are going to do it too. Instead of doing the whole costume I could do some kind of half hearted thing that I could easily take off--I don't know. The single parents meetup group I belong to is having a party at someone's house but I have only been to a few events in that group and don't know the people really well so I feel odd about going--I know a lot of people signed up--I wonder how big this persons' house is to have like 40 people at a party. I did used to like dressing up.
Is anyone else doing any kind of Halloween thing? And I hate to say it but by now, after 24 yrs of living in this house, I am sick of giving out candy! We have a lot of kids in the neighborhood but now I'd just like to shut the door & pretend I'm not home. My son is 17 so he's too old to go out but somehow I know my DD will find some kind of party to go to--that involves a lot of drinking, I'm sure.
