It’s Halloween. Happy Halloween!
Today is Halloween, but it’s not Halloween. Allow me to explain.
Trick or Treating was scheduled in my town for October 31 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM. Then on Sunday we got hit by a nasty wind storm. We’ve been calling it a mini-hurricane even though it wasn’t a hurricane at all. There were power outages all over town and yesterday schools were closed. Today, schools were closed again and city hall was closed too. But last night before bed, the police department announced via Facebook that trick or treating was still on.
I was sad about that. The kids are at their dad’s tonight. Yes they are both too old for trick or treating, but it’s still cool to give out candy to all the kids. I wanted them here. Also, I don’t get out of work until 5:30, and it takes more than an hour to get home. I was going to miss the whole thing.
Then this morning, the PD announced that trick or treating was postponed until Thursday. That would work for me. It is a kid night, and I work from home. Sure, the kids would be at their after school stuff and we have to go to a meeting at the high school so we would all miss it. Oh… so maybe that isn’t a good thing, huh?
Then about an hour after they changed the date to Thursday, they announced that it was changed again! This time to Saturday. Will we be able to participate? I haven’t a clue! I am so trick or treat confused right now that I don’t even know what day it is anymore. WOOHOO!
