Wouldn't have been my first choice to go to Wal-Mart on Halloween. But Harmony tells me to go buy candy "for the kids" and Bath and Body Works is paying, who am I to argue? Especially when I can pick out the good stuff. Somehow by ten today, all the chocolate had disappeared. Wonder what kids ate all that?

Poor Cameron, though. He doesn't care much about costumes but if Karen let him he'd devour all the candy he got. "Take all the peanut M&Ms you want, I'll have more next week." Well, since I'm talented enough to eat them and do my exercises at the same time.

Maybe it's a reward. After all, since I had to drive Janna around yesterday, wasn't I entitled to their leftover candy? I was only going to take a few pieces. Really. But she handed me a Wal-Mart bag and told me to go trick-or-treating. Hey, an order's an order.

Peppermint patties, and Reese's, and Tootsie Roll Pops, and pieces of Juicy Fruit so big they make your jaw hurt. Airheads that are actually sour, Baby Ruths, Now and Laters, Teddy Grahams, Laffy Taffy, orange Oreos, Snickers, Sweet Tarts, wonder I'm in such a good mood.

i love buying halloween, some many choices. i usually buy at least four or five different things to shell out, this year, we ate all the caramels before halloween, and i had to buy more, for the special person who was shelling out that night;)

Eugene, take your personal "issues" elsewhere.

I hate having all the left over candy within reach. I mean, I don't even like candy corn - yet my hand reaches for it every time I pass the bowl. What the heck is that all about? I mean, other than a lack of self-control, obviously. Wierd.

Why were the Airheads sour? Was someone telling blonde jokes?

Nettie, I love your inner child! I'll bet you'll trick or treat at 80 and still give life a whirl.

Peppermint patties, and Reese's, and Tootsie Roll Pops.

These are a few of my favorite things!

I love candy. I loved it more when we used to take our baby goddaughters trick or treating, and then their parents let them each have two pieces of candy and sent them off to bed while the 4 of us pigged out on their stash!!!

All that sugar just makes you sweeter. I only had six trick or treaters. Four of them got the scare of their life. I posted about it on my blog.
