Odd Halloween.

We just got back from trick-or-treating. There really wasn't very many kids out at all. Nor were there many houses handing out candy. I believe this all has to do with the swine flu. I am not surprised really that no one was out and I don't blame them. If we didn't have a child who earnestly looks forward to this night I wouldn't have gone out at all. I would have rather done anything else in the world such as shop for spa filters. Considering I don't have a spa you can imagine how very much I wanted to stay home. I made the kids wear gloves so that they would be physically handling the doors and bowls that everyone else had. We also are going to stick the candy in the freezer for a while to hopefully kill off any germs.
