Woooooooo it's the Halloween Hump Day Hmm!! 10-31-07

I'm going to be late to my own party. Yep, that's right, I will post my own Hump Day Hmm post LATE! (See? It really is a loose deadline folks LOL!)

Here's why:

1. I have to work 3 Halloween events today. I'll probably manage no more than 2 of those, disappointing everyone else. This is on top of my regular obligations for the day, such as my work.

2. My husband is AWOL again. I think he's somewhere near the Louisiana border surveying a site. So I'm solo parenting.

3. The really great pictures and stories will happen later today and tonight.

4. Blogger won't let me upload photos now...so I can't even show you the pumpkins my husband so beautifully carved!

However! In the meantime, there are a lot of cool Halloween stories floating about today...just email me at j pippert at g mail dot com if you want to be included in the list. And be patient. I might be at a carnival or a festival or a party. But I'll get to you.

(And seriously! The list below? I have more than 34 Halloween posts in my Google reader so whassup people! You have a post about Halloween...let's co-op link!)

Happy Halloween and Happy Reading!

Good luck, Julie. And isn't it typical for the husband to be away on just such a day?!

Don't forget to enjoy!

As one who was the AWOL husband, don't think the guys don't miss missing these golden moments. I'm sure he'd rather be trick-or-treating than surveying. If not now, in 20 years he will ache for what he missed.

If we use the loosest, palest definition of Hump Day Hmmmm, i think my Costumed Requital Post would qualify.

Here's the link...as I am also speerheading 2 events, today, one of which, I should be baking for right this moment. Enjoy the day! I'll check back tomorrow to get caught up on all the fun.

My post is a Wordless Wednesday Halloween post...if you want to link it up, I'll edit it back to link to yours. Since it is wordless I am unsure if it qualifies. :)

Good luck today!

Is it wrong that I'm so happy you're late? I won't have to feel so damn inadequate when I post late now!

Hope the madness today went well!
