This was a low-key Halloween for us this year. HalfshellHusband broke his wrist on Sunday, and had surgery on Thursday (lots of pain, despite the meds). Our son is too old for trick-or-treating, and my usual plan of walking around the neighborhood with him to see everyone else's decorations/etc. was foiled by his being at a party tonight, and also... my mother is visiting.
A week and a half ago, we thought this would go differently and that we'd have time to clean the house and such. I wound up doing that after work all week. I also missed the Yuletide signup deadline, because I was distracted. We are also down to one legal driver in the household. Our son can drive with an adult, but my husband couldn't really go anywhere after Wednesday, except to and from the hospital. What a week!
There are actual Halloween decorations outside, though, and we had candy to hand out. HalfshellHusband is progressively feeling better, though the night of the surgery I had to take him back to the E.R. because his pain level was unmanagable. He's on hefty narcotics, and there are still tough periods, but he says that overall the pain is tranding downward. So, that's good.
What did all of you do for Halloween? It has always been one of my favorite holidays, and it seemed as if it almost sidestepped me this year. Help me live vicariously!
