This is the first year, I’ve spent a holiday away from home. I know its only Halloween but there is still alot to miss – holiday lights (yes, we like to put up lights for all holidays including Halloween), pumpkin carving (pictures below), costumes, haunted lights & fog and then trick & treaters. I am stuck here living/working in Utah this year while my family is still in Idaho.
My housing situation is an RV in an RV park so there have been no trick or treaters and now I have a full bag of candy, which is not a good situation for a diabetic. No time to decorate, good thing since there is no one to see and enjoy it. Pumpkin carving was out for myself because I got depressed everytime time I thought about doing it all alone. The only productive thing I’ve done today is go grocery shopping.
My lifeline has been Facebook since my wife and kids have accounts and they keep posting pics and such which helps me feel like I’m almost there. Facebook has been fun and I really enjoy wasting time on Farmville – I always can use more neighbors!! I have a link on Facebook to this blog so hopefully this posting will show up there. Just been killing time this evening by talking to my sweetie on the phone and watching so called scary movies on TV. Well, they are classified as scary but they are mostly slasher films which are gross & bloody which I would not necessarily say they are “scary”.
Wow, I can’t believe its 11:05 PM so I think I will cut this short for now. I hope to post more often and keep this updated.
