Seriuosly. I'm not the least bit in the mood to decorate or even HAVE Halloween this year. The pumpkins I made and posted about below??? those are literally the ONLY Halloween/Fall decorations that I have going on at my house right now, with the exception of some real pumplins and guourds outside. Plus, with Halloween on a Monday this year, we can't fully install our haunted cemetery, because the girls have school the next day and the hubs has work and I have pt, which means we don't want to have to spend all night undecorating (we have old hags and 'insert not so nice name calling terms here' as neighbor, therefore our decoractions must be taken down the night of Halloween). We already drive that 'insert expletive name calling terms here' neighbor crazy at Christmas, rofl. We like to get the most of our outdoor lights, install them not so long after Thanksgiving and we turn them on every night up to New Year's Day, rofl that old fart HATES us, rofl, but we have a blast annoying him, and he can't do anything about it...but Halloween? he complains and then the city whines to us that he's wasting their time complaining...instead of them growing a 'set' and telling him to shut up, they say 'we'll talk to them about it.' And if we don't do it, he continues to complain to them. I finally said, 'am I breaking any ordinance?' they say ' no, but it's being an nuisance to the 'expletive' So WE say, 'if ain't in writing stating that we're breaking an ordinance, we ain't doin' it!' HA!! that'll learn him, lol.
what was I sayin??? oh, not in the Halloween mood...yeah, I'm not. Am I the only one? I just can't 'get' in the mood...it doesn't help that my kids are half grown...one turns 18 on Friday, the other turns 13 in 2 weeks, and they hate trick or treating. The 13 yr old has refused to trick or treat since she was 8, and the oldest hasn't been since she was about 11 or so, they just don't like it. They dress up still, but that wears off about an hour into Halloween night, lol and then they all go inside and leave me outside w/the fire pit and trick or treaters all by myself, while they sit inside watching scary or haunted movies, eating big bowls of my annual pot of chili...and I'm alone, outside, in the cold, in the dark, ughhhhhhhhhh. Plus, my bestie and her boys always come up, and since they all have work and school the next day, so they don't get to come hang out :( so, with all this, I am just NOT in the mood for Halloween this year. But, I'll wish that you all are, and that you have a safe, enjoyable Halloween fun night!!!
