Fibro Feelings – Halloween Hubbub
This week was mostly filled with Halloween related things for me. I tried to take it easy before the weekend so I could fully enjoy my friend’s Halloween party and it worked! I somehow managed to stay six hours with The Helpful Hubby. My feet were hurting pretty badly, so I was happy to find out that a few people were hanging out in a bedroom, resting their feet. (No, there wasn’t any funny business going on) I sat on the bed and joined them, which allowed me to stay an extra hour or so. It was so much fun and the costumes were great! The following day I was ex-huas-ted! About the only thing I got accomplished was writing Monday’s post and that took me lots of hours. I caved and ordered pizza for dinner so my body could just sit and relax.
On Halloween night I handed out candy and glow bracelets (from the $1 bin at Target) to trick-or-treaters. I was great to see my old neighbor and two of her kids again. Her daughter’s favorite color is purple, just like me! We had less trick-or-treaters than normal, but it seems like most people that I know did. All the getting up and down from a sitting position started to wear on me as my back/leg/hip issue of lately started feeling worse. I feel kinda bad, because afterward I realized that I forgot to tell most of the kids how great their costumes were. Oops!
I also made the mistake of scheduling Squeaky’s annual veterinary appointment for the day after Halloween! So, I was up and at ‘em the next day as well. With my back/leg/hip pain I decided not to go grocery shopping while I was out, but The Helpful Hubby took me to pick up a few things after dinner. I haven’t given taking down the Halloween decorations more than a mere mental thought of that it is time to do it, but I did change my computer wallpaper from candy corn to fall leaves!
Have you moved on to thinking about Thanksgiving yet?
