|"Witch" Alexandrea, my boss's daughter who paid a visit to us at work today - BOO!|
Happy Halloween everyone! I just had my first visit from neighborhood trick or treaters. I had my bucket of candy (properly wrapped thank you) ready for them. Earlier I put my fake pumpkin with a light in it in the window to let the neighborhood kids that I am tricking (not the first time I've said that word by the way, but that's another WHOLE different story and this is a family blog).
Somehow, tonight just doesn't feel like Halloween. I just cannot get in the mood. A lot of it has to do with the election and the incredible lies and dirty politics that the Romney campaign and the Republicans are descending to in Ohio to convince those "undecided voters" that President Obama is the devil incarnate. I think we all know who the devil is but again, I won't go into that in this blog posting.
I'm also a bit down thinking about all those poor folks in New Jersey and New York who have lost their homes as a result of this horrible Hurricane Sandy. I also feel a little bit guilty because when I saw that Sandy was going to hit the very spot on the east shore of Delaware where I live (Lewes) I was hoping it would move forward a bit and hit Atlantic City and New Jersey instead. It did! The hurricane actually took an abrupt turn and moved fifty miles north and DID HIT Atlantic City. I now have Survivor's Guilt. The only solace I am getting from this whole disaster is seeing how New Jersey governor Chris Christy (who I am liking more and more every day) and President Obama are cooperating to bring relief to all those affect by this monster storm. How unlike the government's response to Katrina. I can't believe that "Brownie", that worthless political hack that Bush appointed to head FEMA during the Hurricane Katrina
Look at me, here I've gone off in the wrong direction again. I'll be SO GLAD when this election is over. I feel so thankful that we dodged a bullet with this storm. I hope those who weren't so lucky lives return to normal very soon.
