Happy Halloween, from 2008!

So I just realized today, the 11th of Novmember 2008, that I was going to post this picture on Halloween.  My sister sent it to me and while I’ve seen pumpkins like this before, I’ve never seen quite as good a set-up.  The scene is set really well!

So, this post is a time capsule of sorts.  Where was I almost a year ago, when I wrote this?  Mostly very happy.  Still feeling guilty about not being as involved this year in the kids’ school as in past years (but much much happier not being as involved).  Thinking about how I could get my acting career back on track with all the other stuff I’m doing and the kids and the house, and coming to the conclusion that I probably can’t.  And that I’d have to lose about 50 pounds to be serious about it anyway.  Being happy that my marriage is still mostly great after almost 20 years together!  Being happy that my kids have reached the point where their default positions are behaving well and misbehaving is the exception, not the rule.  Being disappointed that I still don’t have a third child and there’s no indication The Ass will ever change his mind about that.  Wondering if this time next year we’ll still be living in only half of our house.  Wondering if The Ass is going to get fired.  And if he does get fired, wondering if we can drop the kids off somewhere for six weeks and go on The Amazing Race together.

Life is good right now, I hope it lasts!

    @Una – I forgot all about this post! Which was, I suppose, the point.

    We would absolutely share the prize money with you guys. Although, I bet you and Nana could get on. I don’t think they’ve ever had a married lesbian couple!
