Halloween and Long, long day

Halloween is over for this year. It was a long, long day to me. It started in the early morning, and ended late night, but not in a happy note. You know remodeling is going on in my home. It is a totally madhouse now. The workers usually come early in the morning. Due to the shorter day,every day they arrive when it is still dark outside.

Anyway, this year my son’s school changed the schedule on Halloween Day. Instead of arranging the parade in the noon, they arranged it in the morning. I was little confusing to me, whether the children would go to school dressing up from home, or they would dress up after going to school. However, I figured out that , they would go to school dressing from home. My son didn't want to listen to me. He wanted to take the costume to school. I couldn’t make him understand, that it would be difficult for him to dress up with one hand in the school. It was a big fuss in the morning. Lastly he agreed with me , and put on his consume at home. In this fuss, as usual we became late. I wanted to go to school early to get a good parking spot, but we reached school so late, I had to park way far from the school.
Anyway, this year parade was fantastic, and unique. This is the first time all the teachers danced in “The Troll” costume. It was really a fun. After the parade, we had one hour in hand before the class party. I volunteered in the party. So, after coming back home I didn't do anything, but sipped a cup of coffee. After all the morning fuss I needed to relax a little. On the top of that, the workers were working, so I didn’t have chance to do any chores. Then again I went back to school to volunteer. That was a fun party. They had a competition in four groups in the class, for making mummy. One of the kids in each group volunteered to be the mummy, and the other wrapped him/her with toilet paper rolls to make the mummy. The most innovate mummy was going to win the game. My son’s team’s theme was “Party Mummy”. Ha ha ha, thinking of little minds.. huh?


Then after coming home, I decided to make something special for the dinner. Few days back I bought a little pumpkin to make my pumpkin puree at home. That took a whole lot of time. Though I didn’t cook much, only pumpkin soup, pumping bread, and pumpkin cookies. However, at the end I was so exhausted. Moreover, the worker were working, which made very uncomfortable to do all the cookings.

In the mean time the  HVAC guy left to buy some parts, as some critical condition arrived. He went far to get that very parts, and caught in traffic . When he came back it was 6:30. In the mean time Trick or Treaters started coming . Mr. Man decided to stay back, and I took my son for Trick or Treating. The guy had been working for ever. When he  left it was 9:30. Then we had dinner. I had no energy to arrange anything on the table we just had a quiet dinner.

This brings back memories for me, Krishna, of when my children were young and I remember Halloween was exhausting to me, too! The things we do as Mothers for our children! It is only when they grow up and have children of their own that they understand the sacrifices. It is nice of you to volunteer at your son's school, too. The Mummy contest sounded like fun. Happy November - I hope the work around your home goes smoothly this week. xx Karen

Sounds like a hectic day. I remember Halloween always being a long, busy day when my kids were little, but to have workers there too had to made it 10 times worse!

What a long hard day for you. Love your pumpkins.

NanaDiana said...

Wow! What a busy day for you. AND--it is always a mess when you have people working in your house. Halloween was always so much fun with the class parties, etc. Now they are not allowed to do that here because some people are against it- they take it to the level of witchcraft and day of the dead so no more school parties. Just sad, if you ask me.

Hope you have a quiet weekend!!!! xo Diana

I wonder are those pumpkins hard to cut the shape out of!
Having never done it or seen it done was just wondering.
