Halloween 2015

Saturday it rained. Practically the whole day. We had plans for “Ghostbusters and Ghouls” at the Houston Symphony that morning. Downtown Houston floods. A lot.  Taina, Charlie, and I were game to try since the Symphony was still performing.

Let’s just say it was an adventure. The rain was not so bad but no matter what route I tried there was high water. Lulu, my faithful GPS, tried her best rerouting but to no avail. Eventually I managed to turn around and head back to the house. Unfortunately while driving through some high water I hit a curb. There was a popping sound. I pulled into the nearest parking lot and yep, my rear tire was blown. Huge hole that Fix-A-Flat wasn’t going to fix. Of course the rain got worse at that moment. Thanks to my dad I know how to change a tire but as I got the car jacked up a wonderful young black man stopped to help me. I made the kids get out of the car to hold umbrellas over him!

Now thoroughly soaked all 3 of us headed to our side of town for lunch at Olive Garden.

Later that evening Charlie went to a friend’s house for trick or treating. He went wearing a t-shirt and jeans saying his costume was “Normal Guy”. My costume was “Lump on the Sofa watching TV”. Charlie came home around 10:30pm declaring he had a total blast. He also had a plastic pumpkin full of candy. I’m thankful for the Lopez’s for taking Charlie with them trick or treating.
