I sit here remembering how I used to take my children all over town trick-or-treating. It was so much fun and, to be honest, I miss it a lot. Last night, I got just one group of children that came to my door. The neighborhood has grown up, no kids here and these were from another neighborhood. Then, it started to rain, no more kids. Last year Sandy hit and that was another nightmare altogether!
The happy note of today is, as soon as my son gets home from school, we are going to go to NJ and help my daughter move into her very first apartment. She has been rooming with another girl since she graduated from college but this will be her own place. I'm so proud of her and really excited!
My car is packed up with all kinds of things. I don't know what she wants and she will send things back with me if she doesn't like them. That's ok, I'm happy she has asked me to help put things away and of course, she wants her brother for heavy lifting.
I went apartment hunting for her and picked out the ones I thought were best. She chose the same one I did. Her dad is coming up tomorrow and they will go shopping and get more "stuff".
Yesterday, she was dressed as "Belle" from Beauty and the Beastm holding my hand and today she is moving into her own apartment, starting her own, wonderful life.
Yup, time flies.
