I have had a topic planned for tonight’s post since last Tuesday, when Kat put out her five writing prompts for the week. I liked the “22 Things I Have Done” prompt, which would have been a counterpoint to my 22 Things I Haven’t Done post. But as usual I couldn’t resist the challenge of writing whatever random.org threw me, which is how I ended up writing about knee-hi hosiery. I had planned to use tonight’s space for the “22 Things I Have Done” topic, but at 9 p.m., with three hours of weekend left, I still had a lengthy to-do list which couldn’t possibly fit in the three hours allotted.
One of the items on the list was helping my son do the Halloween decorations. Here’s where the “on the 30th” part of this post’s title comes in. Wayne Kevin has been talking about the Halloween decorations for weeks – it is his favorite part of the holiday. And by 9 p.m. on “Halloween Eve,” there wasn’t a single bloody limb or spider web to be found adorning our house.
That is why instead of a “22 Things I Have Done” post, I prioritzed a 23rd thing, spending an hour with my son decorating for Halloween. Some photos:
