I love Halloween. I love dressing up and having the chance to be silly or spooky, though now that I have young kids more often than not I get to go the most mythical of all creatures, a "well-rested mother." Oddly enough, they look like everyone else and no one can be sure they've actually seen one. AND THE WEATHER FINALLY COOLED OFF!!! The brisk mornings are wonderful and the afternoons are comfortable. This is what I look forward to with the fall weather!
In other news, our house is under contract again and the potential buyers are excited and flexible about timing and when the deal closes. We've heard everything from end of October all the way to the end of December. So we shall see what they want to do. This means that we get to go home shopping. We've been looking online at so many houses that they are all starting to blend together. Not a good thing when you aren't sure exactly when you need to leave.
Still the kids are getting through school, though we are starting to hit some rough patches with my son. He's autistic and math is proving to be very abstract for him, especially the way its taught now. Lots of oddly phrased questions and "Draw a shape with more than 4 side and 4 corners." He just has no clue. My oldest is thrilled to have her two best friends in her class and is loving it.
Now I just need time to work on something. Drawing would be great, heck, I'd even settle for sketching, but I'll probably end up boxing stuff up as we get ready to move. Knowing my DH, the computer will be one of the last things to get boxed up, so maybe I can try my hand at writing something else.
