I am a fan of the 80s. There, I said it. I can’t be sure why, except for the fact that it was bright and happy and bouncy, and for a kid, it was a great era to live in. So when I found out ShesConnected was having a 80s theme party during the conference weekend, I was excited!
As I crawled out of bed today and was dragging my feet with every chore I did, I realized why I felt this way. I had a Halloween hangover. I only called it that later today when I saw my Twitter friends call this day by that name. It seems to be ‘a thing’. And you’d think a Halloween hangover would consist of a headache from consuming too much alcohol from a crazy party in town that I only got home from in the early morning. But no. Nope! I had this ‘hangover’ simply because I am a mama and I went trick or treating with my three children. Okay, that’s putting it mildly.
Canada in the fall.
It’s a beautiful thing.
The initial rush of getting back in order for a new school year has slightly subsided for most families and now the groove has set in. And before the fall season changes (ever so drastically) to winter (bite my tongue), I encourage everyone to get your families out for some fall fun.
