I’m down to one trick-or-treater.
I knew this on October 31st of last year, but somehow I guess I still put away two Halloween buckets.
There comes a time when you move from being the candy getter to the candy giver, and 2/3 of my kids are now givers, working at our church’s event instead of going trick-or-treating.
Yet, last week as I opened the cabinet where I keep our buckets, I noticed there were still two in there. I really can’t pretend I need two when I only have one person in the house who would ever use one.
Sticking it in the Donate Box showed clearly how quickly we’re moving toward the end of another era in our family, and that made me sad. But I am relieved to reduce by 50% my chances of being hit on the head by a falling plastic pumpkin when I open that cabinet.
