Our neighborhood is usually a fiasco during Halloween and yesterday was no different. I always get tons of candy but seem to run out at the end as I start giving handfuls out too early! We took Conrad trick or treating to about 6 houses, mostly our friends and with kids Conrad’s age. Here’s Conrad looking great in his tiger costume . . .
Yesterday was my birthday, yes the day before Halloween! That is why Halloween has always been my favorite holiday. I’ll be sure to take some amazing pictures of Conrad tonight and post up tomorrow!
But this year’s birthday was all about licenses expiring. If you’ve read this post you know that I’m a “semi-retired” CPA, but still a CPA regardless and that means I must complete continuing education hours. These hours are due the last day of your birthday in order to renew your CPA license. This year I had 54 hours to complete and for some reason managed to procrastinate completing the hours until the week before last! I swear I was never a procrastinator until becoming a mom! Needless to say the last two weeks were filled with not very exciting accounting topics. But I finished and that’s over until next year, which I vow not wait until the last minute!
Also, expiring on my birthday was my driver’s license. This year I was not able to renew it online as a picture and eye test were required. I had to wait about 2 hours and look in one of those goggle eye test screens that force you to put your forehead on it. The lady swore she rubbed “antibacterial stuff”(yes she used that term) on it as she must have saw my hesitation. Needless to say I used an antibacterial wipe on my forehead once safe in the car. Fortunately I completed this on Monday as I did not want to be stuck at the DPS on my birthday!
The gorgeous flower arrangement pictured above arrived yesterday for my birthday from a dear friend! It is just too beautiful not to capture in a photo!
Have a safe and amazing Halloween!!!
