This Is Halloween

In my family, it wouldn't be Halloween without PUMPKINS! Every year, we do something different, and we always have the best pumpkins in the neighborhood!
The first on the left is Ian's haunted house, then my jack skellington, then Justin's kitty on the moon, and Pat's revenge of ichabod crane. We chose our designs well!

it's 5am?! Where are the kids?

Where are my kids at 5am? Not in their beds! Ian has decided that no time should be wasted sleeping in on the weekends! He gets up, gets dressed, goes into the livingroom, turns on every light, and starts singing. Those of you who know me understand what a serious offense this morning time cheer is.
It is now 7:35am. Pat is still in bed, the kids are running around like loons, we've already had breakfast, and we're about to leave and go grocery shopping before they wake up the whole neighborhood!
I hate mornings!

don't look directly at the fish

I'm a little behind on the times, these are the fish we adopted a couple months ago.
Peaches, Oreo, Special, and Nemo.
They are large golfish, except for special, he's recovering from a bad bout of finrot.
All they want to do is eat. I'll be sitting on the couch reading my book, and I'll feel eight fishy eyes watching me! They beg for food all day! If you get within 2 feet of the tank, they start freaking out and knocking over the plants in the tank!
So that's why I tell my family, and friends, Don't look directly at the fish! They take that as a sign that you come bearing gifts of food! And if you don't pay homage, they try to jump out of the tank, and they spit rocks at the front of the tank! I figure when they get too big, I'll just find someone with an indoor pond, and they can adopt my adopted fish!

Smuggy MCsmuggerton

I am so smug it should be illegal! I even had to celebrate with a secret midnight cheeseburger! My latest essay in my writing class was graded and returned to me today! There were no mistakes, and I was deemed "Grammatically perfect" by my writing teacher! I should be fined for this level of smugness!
