Friends, as I sit here writing this, it is November 1st. I am not wearing sexy pajamas.
The robe is back 😉
The final day, Day 31, of The Melissa Gorga Experiment was Halloween. (Duh.)
I realize now that Melissa Gorga probably did something like make pumpkin and ghost-shaped pancakes for Joe and the kids for breakfast. Oops. Too late. I did cereal.
Since my daughter was still acting slightly sick with a 99.2 temperature, I was hemming and hawing over whether to bring her to her school’s Halloween parade and party.
I asked her if she wanted to go. She said no. Well that was fine by me, because it makes my life a lot easier.
But then my husband said, “Why are you asking her? You’re the mom. She’s going!”
I figured he was right. She’s two. She doesn’t even know what a Halloween parade is.
So I wrangled her kicking and screaming (literally) into her spider costume and put the baby in his pirate outfit.
My husband met us at the school for the parade which was billed as a 30-minute long activity but was really only 10 minutes. It was cute, and my husband got some good pictures on his phone.
I didn’t even scold him for forgetting the camera that I had specifically asked him to bring that morning.
My husband came home around 4:30 from work. He announced that he wanted to bring the fire pit onto the front patio so he could sit outside by the fire and greet trick-or-treaters.
This was not my idea of fun, but I let him do it. “Sounds great!” I said.
Definitely not a fire hazard to leave a fire pit burning while we go trick-or-treating down the block.
We made our rounds to the neighbors’ houses and then came home to do bath and bed.
While we were sitting down watching TV together, the baby fussed a bunch of times. Each time, I hopped up to go get him. Just one more day, I kept telling myself.
(Sidenote: I think my husband is legitimately scared of what’s going to happen today, now that the experiment is over.)
I ended up being up with the baby until after my husband went to sleep (oops) so there was no opportunity to go out with a (literal) bang. Oh well.
So that’s it, folks. The final day of The Melissa Gorga Experiment is complete.
I’m going to take the weekend to think about how it has affected me, my husband, and our marriage.
On Monday, I’ll have my wrap-up post and a couple of fun contests to celebrate all the new fans who followed along with me this month.
Happy November! xoxo
