October 1st! Can you believe it? I can't. Next thing you know...it's Halloween and I have to take the kids trick-or-treating. Of course, this is something I love to do! I love getting the little munchkins all dressed up and taking them out into the night. Since we always take them to the same small town I trick-or-treated in as a child, the activity invariably brings little bits of nastalgia my way. (insert sappy grin)

I have been a bad student and I mean that in more ways than one. First, there's my BN class. I have hardly touched my story. I got scene two done--I think. That leaves one more scene for Chapter One. Maybe I'll get something done tonight. It just depends on the kids, the hubby, and the housework.

The other class I'm taking - you know, the official this-shows-up-on-your-college-transcript kind - is very interesting. When I'm in class, I'm enjoying myself. When I'm home, I hardly have time to crack a book. I know this won't last indefinitely. I just have to get through the next couple of weeks....by then the Winter 2003 Schedule booklet will be in print and available on the web. I might have a life after that.
