I hit Halloween pretty hard this weekend. While I feel like I need a few days of doing nothing but laying on my couch watching New Girl, I had a great time and regret nothing.
Except forgetting to eat dinner before the party, and getting drunk on devil punch within about a half an hour. To the lovely person who rides Olly at my barn (you know who you are) that I acted like I had never met you before, I apologize. It was the rum talking. Happy Halloween?
When I woke up the next morning, I woke up to a lot of interesting pictures and thoughts.
I thought I was not going to survive my hangover (spoiler alert – I did).
I thought it might be easier to set my house on fire than it would be to clean it. This thought was confirmed later when I attempted to clean and found jello shot containers tossed in one of my craft baskets.
I thought, Why is there a dried up dog turd in the Halloween candy from the pinata? How many people dug through this candy anyway to get Almond Joys? Can I still take this to work on Tuesday since everything is individually wrapped?
Mostly I thought that I had so many great, funny people in my life. On Saturday evening my backyard was filled with characters from cartoons, movies and comic books. We also had a chicken and a unicorn. The most important part though, was that it was full of friends.
Sunday I pushed myself out to the barn for our Halloween barn party, and threw the decorations I had pulled down from my walls previously on Simon. A handful of us paraded around the ring in our pony costumes while everyone else ate delicious snacks and drank (something I will never do again… drinking that is).
Even though I was still feeling terrible, I knew I was fortunate. I’m going to leave y’all with pictures from the barn party that I didn’t take (see hangover) because I can’t word today. All you young people better believe that the two day hangover is not a myth (welcome to your 30’s).
Happy Halloween everyone. I’ll be over here chugging water and diet coke until I can go home and attempt to clean my house again before passing out.
