100 Days of Happiness – 1/2 way

First of all I must apologize for not writing last night.  It was another night the chronic fatigue got the most of me and I was out for the night.  And I just can’t help but repeat a little bit…

Day 49 – It was another great game in the World Series.  The Cubs won by a little wider margin this time.  I had to stop in the middle of the game and run to my Dad’s house, but I didn’t miss much.  I was looking at the bases loaded and told my boyfriend that it would sure be nice to get a home run about now… and they DID!  A grand slam… if only I really had that kind of power to make it happen.  LOL

Day 50 – Do you have to ask?  Do you have to wonder?  Heck this is easy… the Cubs WIN the World Series!!!!  My mom and my former father-in-law were both big Chicago fans – they are celebrating in heaven tonight.  There was a party in the apartment building across the street and you could hear them shouting and setting off fireworks and then they began singing. “Go Cubs Go…”  It is good to be able to celebrate something positive.  Both teams gave the series their all and were great teams.

Now that the series is over it is back to business as usual.  My boyfriend will be able to get to bed closer to his normal time.  I won’t have to race between here and my Dad’s on commercial breaks at the inning to try to miss as little as possible.  It will be back to my usual college football games to cheer on. But once more before I go… way to go Cubbies!

Day 48 – 100 Days of Happiness

This is one of my easiest days to do.  This was trick-or-treat night for our town tonight and just like my mom used to do, I love seeing all the little ones dressed up in celebration of the holiday.  My boyfriend and I live in an apartment building that does not get many kids, so we helped my dad out tonight.  He has trouble getting up and down to keep answering the door, so we went to answer his door and hand our treats.

A pretty good year for him… he ended up with 32 costumed kids, a handful of costumed parents and 3 sorority sisters looking for food bank donations. By far super heroes ruled the night.  We saw multiple Batman, Ironman and Superman show up.  Star Wars as always was represented.  But I feel the winner of the night was an adorable little boy who had a magician’s costume on.  He had matching sequined vest, hat band and wand; top hat and suit…he couldn’t have been more than 4 or 5 years old.

As usual though you can never guess how much candy to buy.  I remember years with nice weather nearing the 100s of children and cold years with next to no one.  This year was a beautiful upper 60s with mostly cloudy skies.  But we still over estimated and  now there is left over candy as we will never be caught running out.  Some how I will suffer through a little chocolate to help dad get rid of the rest.  LOL!
