It's Wednesday now and so far our FUN TIMES consisted of a day spent fruitlessly in search of elusive Halloween Costumes. 12 knew exactly what she wanted, but no store had exactly the right Greek Goddess costume (Artemis, if you must know is not a popular costume. Go figure). I'm still not sure what she had in mind, but we did not find it out there in retail land. 10 didn't really have a clue what he wanted to be as usual. He generally opts for costume that will require the purchase of plastic weaponry to complete the look. He has done Policeman (handcuffs and handgun required), Army Ranger (a plastic rifle of some sort), Fireman (an axe), Ninja (multiple swords and throwing stars) and Gangster (another plastic rifle). Eventually though, he spotted a Robin Hood costume that he thought looked pretty awesome. Unfortunately for him, it was a Men's XXL. Six HOURS and 10 stores later, totally not joking, we came home empty handed. I went online and had 2 perfect costumes within 10 minutes.
Needless to say, we are sitting around the house today vegging in front of the TV (separately for some reason). Tomorrow at least it's a day at the zoo and the weather promises to be no higher than 85 degrees. I am very much looking forward to that, even though it is really due to a school assignment that we have to go in the first place. I also get to bring two of 12's friends along, since they have the same project to do. Hmmmm, I think that when I decided to go back to working only part time I MAY have made an error in judgement. Perhaps. Possibly. Probably. Alas, someone's gotta do it so it may as well be me. At least I like the zoo! (and the kids, but less so them)

It was 100 degrees
I was hot, but it looked cute!
