But it made me think how much things have changed in the past few years. I mean, let's face it, a few years ago I was the obnoxious drunk chick in the bar picking fights with boys who pushed themselves too hard on me. (Seriously. Sad. I know) And now I am playing wifey and Mommy, living my 1950s life in a "developing" Muslim country.
Couple years ago...
Who the hell came up with that expression, btw. Really most of us who are using it are using it as a synonmy to "sucky"... what exactly constitutes "developing"? That was all painfully random, but just a few things going through the old noggin.
We got Marcia and Mimi's packages! Holy crap candy! lol. I don't know how we will EVER use all the Halloween candy they sent, but thank you so much for sending some American spirit! I had a meltdown in Spinney's the other day over a pumpkin. I'll save that post for when we get it carved though. Stay tuned.
They sent fun decorations too though. So Mo sent some towels and silverware (she sent Kaden some Halloween bowls too but they cracked on the way here. :( ) Marcia sent some pumpkin and "fall" decorating streamer things, a "Mummy" outfit for Kaden, glasses with a gross green nose attached to it, and Mimi sent a TON of candy and a card that sings that Kaden won't leave alone! Haha. So we're officially feeling like we're experiencing the Halloween-ness of Halloween. And we only had to celebrate it for 4 days, while I am sure the rest of you have been bombarded with it for the past two months! See? There are some good things about living away from it all.
Enjoying the singing card!
