A town ordinance for the age of a trick-or-treater? Not sure how I feel about this one...although I can't remember when I stopped. I want to say high school. It just seemed humiliating at that point...although I did miss the free candy.
Do you guys remember the movie, The Usual Suspects? It's a great movie, but one of the most memorable parts of the movie for me was when Kevin Spacey's character leaves him limp behind and starts walking normally. That's me, folks! Every now and then I'll catch myself limping like crazy and I'll actually have to remind myself to walk normally. I swear, I resemble Spacey's character from that movie...it's ridiculous.
I became a homemaker yesterday (ugh!). After I dropped the Crazies off at preschool, I spent 20 minutes at the post office putting stamps on my own damn envelopes (don't they have machines for something mundane like that???). Then I raced home to start the beef stew I would be feeding my family for dinner. It took forever (note to self...don't brown the veggies next time...you don't need to seal in the flavor of a carrot). I wore an apron and everything. Then I vacuumed (who am I?). Then I sat down for approximately 6 minutes and then went to get the Crazies from preschool.
In the afternoon, while the Crazies napped, I made buttermilk biscuits. I had to freeze butter and everything. They were awesome.
Needless to say, the Crazies didn't even TRY my awesome stew. They did eat the biscuits though. Just call me Betty Freaking Crocker...
