Oh Crap. It’s October.

Okay, so technically it’s been October for 27 days. But I’m somehow just realizing this.


Scratch that.

The truth is, I haven’t realized it yet. But apparently, it is October. And next Tuesday it will be November, and 17 minutes later, they’ll start playing Christmas music.

And then this morning, as I was checking the Internet, I read the first part of this tweet from my friend Karen.

And I was like, um, disgusting. That’s some really old milk. Honestly, Karen. Clean out your refrigerator. Gross.

And then read the second part of the tweet, and I realized that she’s talking about new milk that will expire in five weeks.

And holy shit. It’s December in five weeks.

I haven’t even done Halloween stuff yet.

Clearly, I am a failure as a mother and as a blogger. I should have shared at least four well-styled craft ideas and recipes by now. Orange and black inspirations of pretty for Halloween, healthy and themed alternative treats for costumed tricksters, and perhaps some stylish shrine ideas for Day of the Dead to round it out.

In other words, I have 30 seconds to pull off the CUTEST HALLOWEEN EVER! or I lose. What I lose, I’m really not sure. But it will be OhMyGodISuck completely lost.

So. Anyone have any ideas? Or should I just buy some Butterfingers, break into them prematurely, and call it a (holi)day.

Also, doesn’t it feel like it should be April?
