My day started out very nice. I finally got around to getting a storage unit for Relay for Life. We had a generous donation from Camano Storage, so my dad and I brought all the stuff we've been storing in our garage and house out to the unit. It's so nice to have it all in one place. After we finished that task, my dad took me out for coffee. Mom only likes her coffee BLACK (nothing in it) and Dad and I are adventurous, so today we had a Ghost Mocha (white chocolate). Mmmmm, it was good. After an afternoon of errands, I came home to get ready for my Halloween visitors.
We had some really cute little trick-or-treaters tonight. Here's who stopped by... Dorothy (from the Wizard of Oz), a chicken, Buzz Lightyear, a Fairy, a Bumble Bee, a Lion and a mouse.
It's funny how the older I get, the more I seem to like Halloween. Maybe it's because I'm not dragging the kids around through the rain and mud while they're crying because they want to eat their candy. Yeah, that might be the reason it's a lot more fun for me now. :)
Since tomorrow starts lung cancer awareness month, I thought it only fitting that I find some songs appropriate for the occasion. Here's what I've come up with so far: The "Lung" and winding road (originally a Beatles song, I've just changed a few words), then there is the Jethro Tull song, "Life is a lung song", "Lung December", by Counting Crows. I assume you can see a pattern with these songs. Amy named them "Doreen's Sing a Lungs". I'm open for any suggestions, so send me an e-mail and I'll post them on the blog...firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for laughing out loud with me. Life isn't always fair, but it is worth fighting for.
