Life in my house for the next week


I used to try and regulate the candy. The good old "only three treats a day" thing. Silly. Not to mention I quickly got tired of the nagging. And it went on FOREVER! So now, it's "eat 'em if you got 'em" and no nagging, and everything is gone in less than a week. Except for Mira. She will hoard, and nibble, and drive those boys crazy by having lots left after theirs are all gone. Last year she lasted until the Christmas treats started coming.
And speaking of Christmas, I know that those of you south of the border have your Thanksgiving yet to look forward to, but having already eaten that turkey, we Canadians have nothing between us and Christmas to buffer us from the advertising that is going to start assaulting us as of today. I just hope that some places can hold off on the Christmas music for a month at least.

Oh, how I dread the Holiday onslaught! It's a mercilous ritual that lasts for the next two months. I think instead of the commercialization, people should get back to hand-created gifts. (I've been doing that for years and years.)

I have yet to experience the halloween induced sugar high kids go through! I can only say Good Luck with yours and I hope it goes quickly!
