(not really, it just goes with the Halloween Theme)
Fragments are definitely all I have floating around in my brain after this week. It wasn't a bad week, just chaotic and tiring, and I'm glad it's over!
Halloween seriously snuck up on me this year. We didn't even get a pumpkin to carve! This weekend we have a Halloween party & other fun stuff going on. It's going to be fun but I'm sad that October is almost over already.
For the first time in about 20 years, I am working a job with a varied schedule. I wasn't sure how I'd like that, but I do...a lot! I especially like having as many as three days off in the middle of the week, and getting off at 12 or 1pm some days!
The kids & I watched the Gremlins this past week, and I have to confess my two favorite parts of that movie: One is when the Mom microwaves the bad gremlin. But the other part is where Billy's girlfriend is describing how her dad died.
Kate: The worst thing that ever happened to me was on Christmas. Oh, God. It was so horrible. It was Christmas Eve. I was 9 years old. Me and Mom were decorating the tree, waiting for Dad to come home from work. A couple hours went by. Dad wasn't home. So Mom called the office. No answer. Christmas Day came and went, and still nothing. So the police began a search. Four or five days went by. Neither one of us could eat or sleep. Everything was falling apart. It was snowing outside. The house was freezing, so I went to try to light up the fire. That's when I noticed the smell. The firemen came and broke through the chimney top. And me and Mom were expecting them to pull out a dead cat or a bird. And instead they pulled out my father. He was dressed in a Santa Claus suit. He'd been climbing down the chimney... his arms loaded with presents. He was gonna surprise us. He slipped and broke his neck. He died instantly. And that's how I found out there was no Santa Claus.
Y'all, I know my sense of humor is warped. But that is some FUNNY SHIT. And the last line is the best. Pure comedic gold.
Have a wonderful weekend!
