One of Life’s Mysteries

Family Circus - Never tomorrow

When I was a kid there were two great mysteries that could never be solved.  The first was how my brother could possibly be older than me.  My birthday was 8 days before his!  If my birthday came first, then I should be older, right?  It shouldn’t matter that he was born 1 year and 357 days before me, my birthday was first!

The other was when was tomorrow.  Everyone would always talk about tomorrow, but it never came!  Tomorrow was just some elusive day that never seemed to appear.  I guess sometimes the great mysteries of life can never be solved!

Halloween Fun

Okay, I'm going to jump back on the blogging bandwagon with some pictures from Halloween.

I told TRMinator that, at 13, he was too old to go trick or treating.  He still really wanted to because his friends were going, so I relented and told him he could still go, but he had to make his own costume.  So he made his and G-man’s costumes.  I’m not sure exactly what they were, it was something from Lord of the Rings.  I let Squanner decide what she wanted to be, and she wanted to be Rapunzel.


TRMinator cut all the pieces of their armor out of cereal boxes, taped it all together and spray painted it.  It actually took him a bit of time to do.  I made the rest from a picture he gave me.



This was right before the school Halloween carnival.  I finished up G-man’s costumes literally minutes before this was taken and we walked out the door.

On the big night, Hubby took Squanner around the neighborhood trick or treating and G-man went with TRMinator and his friends.  After about a half an hour, they made it to our house and G-man decided that he was done, and wanted to stay inside to watch TV and eat his candy.  Of course now that he is about out of candy and his brother and sister still have lots, he’s regretting that decision just a bit!
