Halloween was awesome. We went to Salem, Mass and walked 7 million miles of outdoor market and blustery wharfs and ate a lot of food and had fun with sarah! We were all pooped when we got home, doggies included and we fell asleep at 8 pm because we are old. Trick or treating with the kids was fun and also freezing and they did it on sunday which seemed kind of insane. I know that day is actually halloween but a lot of houses were dark and there weren't that many kids out.
We're still waiting to hear who's taking the governor's race in Maine. The republican has a one percent lead on the independent candidate with 80% of precincts reporting. I have my fingers crossed for a sudden bump or a favorable re-count, anything but social conservatism.
The days are starting to get unpleasantly short and I know it's just the beginning. The dark months are the worst months ever and it makes getting my furries enough exercise a serious pain in the rump, let alone my exercise needs. I am looking forward to snowshoeing I just wish I wasn't going to be doing it in the dark!
