Not one trick-or-treater on Halloween. And you know what that means: A whole bowl of Snickers bars staring me in the face. And I chose last week to be “sugar-free.” HELP!Actually, I did not waiver and did not eat a single Snickers bar! So what this means is that my co-workers will have to suffer through a whole bag of chocolate. I think they can do it. I did carve a pumpkin even though this was the first Halloween I did not have the kids home. I just could not let the day go by without having a jack-o-lantern flickering on the front porch. I took photos on my new iPad and sent them to the family.
