I won the family punkin carving contest!
I can't believe it. I don't think I've ever won before, and we have been doing this a long time. And mine was really a rush job, I had barely walked in the door from driving 2 1/2 hours to get to Rexburg and I had less than an hour to get a finished product. So that's why it's such a simple design.
Just got back home, and I am wiped out. And I have a hella busy week ahead of me too. I didn't get to go play in the sand like Some People I Know.
I've been thinking about MCM a lot today, since it was Fall Back. He hated the switch back to standard time, because it meant he rode the train home in the dark. A small consolation is that next year we get an extra week of daylight savings time, so that our precious trick-or-treating-aged children will have extra time in daylight to go around begging for candy. I don't know why this wasn't figured out decades ago. I know MCM would have some caustic kid-hating smart-ass comment to make, and although I wouldn't necessarily like it, I'd laugh along anyway. Because I pick my battles, and fighting over a dumb off-the-cuff comment made by someone I care about is not a way I like to spend my time. MCM, I still miss you . . . . . but the pain isn't quite as bad.
