The week that was!
1) One Good Thing: Got the older kids (14-18) to run a Spooky Night for our little Joey Scouts last night (Halloween being off-limits in case someone found it offensive. Schools and church youth groups can do it, but not us apparently.) Anyway, they had great fun digging in cold spaghetti for lollies, hunting for “eyeballs” (round wooden beads) in gel polymer with their toes, making masks and playing “pin the frown on the ghost”. Only one set of tears, so night of success!
2) One Bad Thing: Looking at throwing a whole lot more old books out of our work storehouses. Death by Spreadsheet. My backside is numb…
3) One Thing I Learned: They make Weight-Watchers-friendly wine now. Of course, now when I can neither drink nor diet, they would come up with this. Not two years ago when I was happily (or not so) trying to balance both. #fail.
