I Heart Halloween!

I love, love, love Halloween...and no, not the slutty costumes out there, but good old scary costumes. As you can see, I was the Grimm Reaper (we did a Haunted House, following Grimm Fairy Tales...I was rocking the Baby in the Tree) and I made it my personal goal to make everyone who came through our House today to scream like a little girl! Mission accomplished!!!!
Yes, that's an actual tree in our work hallway! We go all out for Halloween... Our building has 12 floors, 8 of which belong and are used by our company. Every department goes whole hog, and there are some very creative people out there...we had Alice in Wonderland, with all the characters, Zombie weddings, a Vegas casino, a horror campsite, 20's flappers and gangsters, the list goes on). There are prizes for best area (we didn't win this year, but that's okay, because we still had the most fun making people scream!), best original costume, best carved pumpkin, best scary costume, best overall costume and best group costumes. All the VP's dress up and get into it, and even though the building was slowly being decimated by h1n1 (or just the flu) everyone that was left still had fun.
And I only indulged in two Reese cups...I avoided all other treats, but that's because I spent most of the day hiding behind things to jump out and attack people. My foot is really punishing me now though...between the 4 hours decorating last night and standing from 9:30 to 3:30 (with a small lunch break), my ankle is totally swollen and locked up. However, it doesn't explain why my wrist looks like this!!! I didn't hit it, twist it, turn it, stress it, etc. Yet it is swollen and puffy and painful!!! I had better get some answers from some doctors next week, because I am at the end of my rope!

Came home (after going in at 6 am - did I mention I love Halloween??) just after 5, and after showering for a long time, I ate some of my potluck leftovers (homemade Mac & Cheese with wieners, broccoli and diced tomato) and drank a whole bunch of water. Iced the ankle (and wrist) for a while and now I'm seriously debating going to bed at 7:44 pm!
I'll lay out on the couch and see what happens from there.
Happy Halloween, everyone!
