Pros & Cons (and a Halloween side note)

Pro: I got an internship at the local newspaper.

Con: It's unpaid.

Pro: This internship means I'll graduate on-time.

Con: We're gonna be poorer than we already are.

Pro: We're married.

Con: Can't seem to find one! Just trying to be grateful.


I'd like to start the "Boo" sign in our neighborhood. Have any of you ever heard of this or done this? We did it back home. It's way fun to see the signs spread to all the doors in the neighborhood. Here's the deal:

You get together a package that includes the following:

1. A yummy treat or fun toy -- Halloween themed, of course!

2. This poem:

The air is cool the season fall
Soon Halloween will come to all
The spooks are after things to do
In fact, a spook brought this to you
"BOO" is a shield from witching hour
Just hang it up and watch its power
On your front door is where it works
It wards off spooks and scary jerks
The treats that came with crypted note
Are yours to keep, enjoy them both
The power comes when friends like you
Will copy this and make it TWO
Then others here among our friends
Will give warm fuzzies that do not end
We'll all have smiles upon our faces
No one will know who "BOO"ed whose places
Just one short day to work your spell
Or a big ZAP will strike your tail
And don't forget a nifty treat,
Like something cute or something sweet
Please join fun, let's really hear it
And spread some "BOO"s and Halloween spirit

3. And a sign that looks something like this:

And then of course, you doorbell ditch your neighbors and leave the package on their doorstep. Who's with me for boo-ing their neighbors?!

See here for ready-to-go boo signs.

2. What I've learned about simplifying my life.

4. A thank-you letter.
