All day yesterday I kept meaning to write a Happy Halloween post. Despite those good intentions, I never managed to get it done. In truth, I wasn't feeling very happy. The six weeks of unemployment combined with the kids being on fall break and a demands of an active new puppy had left physically and emotionally tired. Then my son's beloved rat got sick. We carried her back and forth to the vet and gave her antibiotics and held her to keep her warm. It wasn't enough, though. After three long days, Cinnamon's poor little body gave out. Ok, I know she was just a rat, but I've got to tell you that the whole thing was extremely depressing.
So, that was my Halloween.
Today, however, things are looking up. Darcy slept through the night, the kids went back to school and Seth got a really good job offer. In a week or two, life might actually get back to normal.
I think I'm going to celebrate by making a couple saddles.
