I am off to church this morning because indeed this is the day of which Halloween is the Eve. Then to Election Judge training all morning. WHY did I volunteer to be an election judge? This is the last thing I want to do right now.
Some of you asked about how my candy plan worked. I bought only candy I didn't like in an attempt to avoid eating candy all day as I usually do on Halloween. I am pleased to report that it worked! I ate one piece of candy all day. Mid-afternoon, I decided to have one tootsie roll pop. One. 60 calories. 10 grams of sugar. Yay!
My family is in big turmoil right now. Meth daughter is withdrawing and not being a very nice person. Her twin sister took the girls from her last night. We were at Target last night as it was closing, buying the girls enough clothes to last a day or two. What a sight we must have been - Wonder Woman, a Purple Fairy, a tired Grandmother, and a very sweet Aunt. I must remember that God loves each of us and is actively caring for each of us. I can only do what I can do - and it helps no one to become a nut case trying to control outcomes and other people's behavior. Please say a prayer if you can.
