trick or treating

My pet peeve(s) on halloween night.

Who is trick or treating for anyway??? To keep things "safe", our town does a halloween walk for the kids of our town.  They close off a main street for all the pedestrians and they give people along the route bags of candy to give out.

Who comes out?

Children, of course - alone or with parents, teenagers dressed in gorey costumes, and parents with babies or children under 2 who can't walk or even say trick or treat.  Who's doing the asking and holding out the bags for them?  The parents!  Who is the candy for?? I don't think it's the babies who will be eating it!

And to top it off, according to a local police officer, people from a bunch of other towns are here too and there is not enough candy for the local children.

Bah humbug.  I don't do halloween, but was out at my neighbors on the main street for awhile and observed the happenings.  My feeling is there ought to be an age limit and it should be kept local and let the other local towns put on their own "walk".

I find that lately I have not been blogging becasue most of my computer time has been spent on Face Book - little notes here and there - nothing substantial....  plus, I have been dealing with the dreaded "D".  Depression.  I don't get it. How can one go from being happy and feeling great for weeks and then suddenly wake up one day and all is changed??? I was flying high from my trip to Guatemala and then - BAM! I was in a such a low.  No outward reason that I know of.... then began a month of headaches and an incident of loss of balance, double vision, loss of short term memory and many tests, which have shown nothing!

I hate not having the joy I was feeling - oh, I still have joy in my salvation and the peace of God, but something is missing.  It's a struggle to get up in the morning or to do anything productive.  I do have to work part time, but I don't even have the joy in that which I did.  All I want to do is sleep or play mindless computer games.  What a waste....

I'm not looking for sympathy or anything.... I just wanted to "vent" and explain my absence.

May God bless you~
