We were BOOoooooed (Halloween fun)!!!!!

October 30, 2008

We were BOOOed! on Monday!!! I had not heard of this until last week when the houses on the street adjacent to ours were being “BOOed!!”

A neighbor leaves a Halloween bucket of treats at your front door, rings the bell, and runs away, or leaves it there while you are out.  That means you have been BOOed!  You are not supposed to know who left the treats for you, but you are to BOO!!! another neighbor.  Neighbors know not to repeat your house because you tape a BOO! Ghost sign to your door.

I can’t tell you how much fun my kids had BOOing two of of neighbors yesterday.  They had MUCH more fun doing that than actually receiving a treat themselves.

this was right before we BOOed the neighbors, and then running away from the neighbors front door.

I’ve been MIA.  Where?  I discovered Facebook.  I know, say no more.  It is VERY addicting my friends.  Very addicting.

But, it isn’t the only reason for my lapse.  Mostly, I can’t find time to do it anymore.  Seriously, this summer was crazy busy, and don’t even get me started on September.  How does everyone juggle raising two adorable kids,  scheduling playdates for them and for yourself, working part time, updating this crazy house, and getting all the cleaning, laundry, and dinners done and not ignore your husband?  Dude, something had to give.  By the time the kids are in bed I am EXHAUSTED and the last thing I want to do is sit in front of a computer.  I can’t blog like I want to anymore.

So from now on most of my posts will be short, sweet, and to the point dammit!

OK, down from my soap box.  Ta Ta…
