It’s Autumn!

Antonio to Kolaka: It’s fall!

Me: Yeah! Happy autumnal equinox!

Antonio: Happy whatever your mom just said.

Alright. I proooooobably went a little overboard with the tulle, but I made a tutu for my Halloween costume! ☺️

  • Kolaka is a hot. damn. mess. today. Clumsy, whiny, full of the cries. I’m trading him in for something quiet that already has its molars in. He’s fighting at the breast as I type. 
  • Kilape must have sensed his difficult brother and has been marvelous. He and I made decorative pom pom spiders together, in the short time that Kolaka napped, and read a few books, he’s looking forward to helping with dinner - but mostly he has been content to hang out and play in any room of the house I’m currently occupying.
  • Despite a busy, and sort of rough day, I managed to get the biggest component of my costume complete. I wasn’t sure I’d get it done properly, but it’s amazing. Way better than I expected and easier too. I figured, since I’m an expert cake maker now {ha}, I can finally challenge myself to do other crap. Three Ninja Turtles are ready for action! I’m just waiting for the pieces to come in.
  • I know why Antonio is irritable over the Halloween discussions, thus I’ll forgive him this year. He’s still extremely excited to pull his hoard of decor out from the basement and put it out. But he likes such cheesy, generic looking stuff, I’m actually terrified. I got two candle holders in, at least! They’re awesome because someone who loves Halloween picked them out. :P This will be the first Halloween we spend together, ever. So, I’d like for it not to suck.
  • I finally spoke to my mother for longer than two minutes on the phone, and she updated me on some things that have transpired, it’s all crazy over there and she glossed over some medical issue that I’m going to hound her about later. :\
