Afternoon Snack, Bread Woes, and Pumpkin Pie

2 apples
24 oz water

My whole wheat bread didn’t come out. 😦 I’m going to have to get some help on this.

The pumpkin pie recipe on the pumpkin can was for cake. I was wondering why it was so funny. I hope they come out well because I kinda made it up as I went along with some help from an internet recipe.

Off to get the kiddos.


Trick or Treat

We went to the downtown festival last night. Chunguita wasn’t sure she wanted to go, but I told her that we would hold hands the entire time and leave as soon as she was tired.

She did pretty well. She needed me to get the candy from some of the more scary characters, whiches, vampires, and monsters. One monster scared her so badly that she wanted to run away but settled for hiding behind me.

Pulguito did very well. He loves his monkey costume. He wasn’t afraid of anything. He walked the entire time, and he carried his basket right up to everyone and held it out for candy.

On the way home, I tried to get everyone to wait until we got home to have candy. Robert just doesn’t seem to understand that if the rules don’t apply to him, he can’t enforce them with the kids. He sat in the front seat and ate the chocolate out of Chunguita’s basket. Of course she knew what he was doing, and of course, she wanted some too.

Dinner & Trick-or-treat

In the morning, the butthead that I’m married to suggested that we take the kids to the downtown trick-or-treat festival. I call him around 4, and we talk about what to have for dinner so we can get downtown. I take care of dinner and pick up the kids. He doesn’t get home until 5:45, then he spends the next 45 minutes playing with his boat so he can go play/fish tomorrow from 4am to 8pm.

When he finally comes in for dinner, he complains to me that we never really talked about going trick-or-treating. Hello? I called him at 4 to discuss it. He’s pissed off because his playtime isn’t top priority for me. Why did he have kids? So he ignore all their activities and go fishing? And he’s mad because he wants me to go to the grocery store on my day off, while he’s out playing on his boat, and I refused. He can wait until I go on Saturday.

Cobb Salad from Safeways
8 oz water

I had one small candybar on the way home from trick-or-treating. We’ll see if I can manage to not eat any tomorrow.

Trick or Treat

The downtown merchants association is having their trick or treat night, tonight, so I have to go home early from work (like that’s a bad thing?) to finish Pulguito’s monkey costume. We didn’t decide to go until this morning, and I didn’t have time to sew on the hat before work.

I worked a little on KS 3222.

Chunguita likes to go thru my fabric swatches. She used to like knits and stretch wovens because they have stretch, but this time when we got to the silk jersey, I told her that they were made from the cocoons of the silk worms that they had at daycare. She found this fascinating, so I pulled out my silk swatches and we looked at those. She was particularly fond of an iridescent fuchsia dupioni. I debated letting her take the swatch book to daycare for show and tell and decided against suggesting it. Perhaps if she asks, I’ll let her take it.
