Tomorrow, as you all must know, is Halloween. This is a fairly big holiday in my family. We pretty much go all out. We normally get together the night before, carve pumpkins, have dinner, roast the pumpkin seeds...and watch the cat (or dog) enjoy the nastiness of the pumpkin insides. It's fun. It has long been a tradition of ours. And tonight, I'm not there. I'm not enjoying the creative carving ideas because I'm at work, just as I'll be at work tomorrow.
Not only will I be working for the first time ever Halloween evening..but I won't be completely dressed up either. It's a first for me. I've asked my co-workers to dress up...to have the holiday spirit. I was quickly shot down by, something to the extent of..Natasia, Halloween is one of those times you reflect and honestly ask yourself, am I an essential or non-essential employee. If you're dressing up, you're non essential. Non essential? Why I aught to not show up..and see just how non-essential I really am!!! Ha ha. Really, don't worry ya'll, I'll be there. I'll be there...well here...in costume, although not full costume. I think a simple witch hat will do.
I also missed out on some candy, cookie, cupcake making fun today with the girlie's at home. I've been wanting to make some cupcakes for awhile now. So, I'm going to try to get up super early and make some. I'll also be staying up late this evening carving my own pumpkin. I hope it turns out well. I'll post some pictures of all my happenings later. HApPy HaLloWeEn!
