It is 4:55 AM – I get an extra hour of “my time” this morning thanks to the daylight savings change on Saturday. This is no guarantee that my youngest will actually sleep an extra hour as I don’t believe he yet honors daylight savings.
I always like to get a journal entry in at the start of the holiday season. I wasn’t motivated enough this past week and was feeling pretty sluggish due to lack of exercise. I found an opportunity yesterday and went for a short run which made me feel great. Unfortunately Halloween happened while I had a lack of exercise endorphins so I wasn’t as in to it as I should have been. But that has now been corrected.
I wanted to write this post right at the beginning of the holiday season which I consider to be right before Halloween! But with two kids now I find that my free time has evaporated to approximately zero. The only time I have to myself is very early in the morning, around 5:00 am or when the wife and boys are at preschool/shopping. It just happens I have a moment now and am determined to get this post finished.
So I’ve turned on “This is Halloween” by The Vitamin String Quartet to try and transport my mind back a month or so.
In the name of science I put the rotting pumpkins outside the gate instead of putting them in the compost. This way my son can see what happens when pumpkins rot. Actually, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a pumpkin rot completely away so I’ll be learning something as well. FOR SCIENCE!! SCIENCE!
