Hello friends! Just stopping in to wish you a Happy Halloween. Although we don’t celebrate Halloween so much in Norway we try to keep in the spirit of things, our family being half American of course. My kids knocked repeatedly on our own door and said Trick or Treat LOL!!! You see the boys are now 17 and 20 so trick or treating is kind of out of the question for them. So instead they had some friends over and a little pizza party and video game time in the furnished basement. Thank God for that basement, I think it has saved our sanity more than once. The furnished part is quite simple, but I picked up a used 36″ Nokia Television when my girlfriend bought a new flat screen TV. They have Playstation 3 (I hope that is right) and Guitar Hero as well as an assortment of other games to entertain themselves with.
I confess this pic isn’t from this Halloween, but it is Renny’s favorite picture of me 🙂 It was taken when my kids were a bit smaller on the occasion of a Halloween party here. I used make myself up in my Kitty costume every year for the kids when I was a preschool teacher.
I must apologize for not blogging much this week, although I have been around visiting some of my friends here in the blogsphere when I have a few minutes. I am just so busy for the time being. I have to keep reminding myself how lucky I am, that I am perusing what I want in life. I want to take my Masters in Social work and I do love to learn, my job at the women’s shelter is very exciting, and my family is dong well. I am juggling more then I think is humanly possible sometimes and really the definition of ‘having it all’, but sometimes I am get really beat. I have 2 term papers and an exam within the next 5 weeks. So I will just have to keep up with you all when it is possible for me.
I wish you all a lovely weekend, and a very happy Halloween!! If you want to see more dressing up, come and see Renny’s post on Olga the Traveling bra playing dress up with the statues in Vigeland Sculpture park in Oslo!
