A Healthy Level of Insanity?

I am up to my ears in all things Halloween. Everybody has 2 costumes to choose from & trust me after last year's Halloween meltdown, this is a must. We've done happies for 10 Playschool 3s, 13 Pre-Kers (which includes personalized pumpkin buckets), 15 2nd graders & 3 teachers.

Tomorrow is Baby Girl's Pumpkin Party & Parade, Friday is parties & parades for the other two & Saturday is "The World's Largest Cocktail Party" & the Bunko Babes Trick or Treat party.

And since I'm about to lose my mind, I'm going to try some of suggestions. Think it'll work?

How To Maintain a Healthy Level of Insanity

1. Sit in Your Parked Car with Sunglasses on and point a Hair Dryer at Passing Cars. See If They Slow Down.

2. Every Time Someone Asks You to Do Something, ask If They Want Fries with that.

3. In the Memo Field Of All Your Checks, Write 'For Marijuana'.

4. Order a Diet Water whenever you go out to eat, with a serious face.

5. Specify That Your Drive-through Order Is 'To Go'.

6. Five Days In Advance, Tell Your Friends You Can't Attend Their Party Because You have a headache.

7. When The Money Comes Out The ATM, Scream 'I Won! I Won!'

8. When Leaving the Zoo, Start Running towards the Parking lot, yelling 'Run for Your Lives! They're Loose!'

9. Tell Your Children Over Dinner, 'Due To The Economy, We Are Going To Have To Let One Of You Go.'

Actually we've done #9 & every time somebody quickly volunteers a sibling. I tell Retro I'll go, but apparently that's not an option.

Cute list!!! I enjoyed it. Hang in there, Halloween is almost over. I remember those days very well. There was always some kind of meltdown concerning a costume, etc. Love & blessings from NC!
