Halloween, Mormon temple, advanced age

Happy Halloween!  Costumes selected, Jack o’ Lantern carved, edible crafts made [courtesy of Pinterest], and candy buckets at the ready.  We’re prepared to move the festivities indoors if rain prohibits going door to door.  This marks the first time my children have ever gone trick or treating together– I can’t even think about what I was doing on this day last year.   I’m so thrilled to be home I may even dress up, both for work and with my kids.

Nothing makes me happier than seeing my children laugh and play.

Bitstrips amuse to no end.  I just wish the app worked better.  You already know I took it upon myself to make avatars for my coworkers.  Even funnier than Bitstrips is my role Merilynn’s dream:  She tried to convince the Mormon Temple in L.A. to hide Adam and me, but I had to cut off the toes for a pair of tube socks so I could hide the tattoos on my arms.  Why ruin a perfectly good pair of socks when I could just use my magic underwear instead?

hehI was born in 1985.  If that’s the year of your birth– give or take a few– prepare to feel ancient.  Buzzfeed presents 34 Things From 2012 That Made You Feel Old.  After reading some of these [Hailie’s an adult?!  That’s Goldberg?!  It’s been over a quarter century since the debut of Full House?!] I realize I’m two steps away from a geriatric facility.  Trezevant Manor, here I come!

fhFriday afternoon. Two days.  In less than 48 hours Z comes home to me.  God, I’ve missed him so much.  At times his absence seemed unbearable.  Never again will we do a long distance relationship.  Live and learn.

With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,



About Cocktails With Hemingway

I'm blunt and opinionated. Virtually everything I say or do is a contradiction but I'm not a hypocrite. I never hesitate to speak my mind and never fail to leave an impression wherever I go. You love me, you hate me, but you'll never forget me.
