    Yep, work can definitely cut into your whole darn day. I'm glad you're getting loose of it a bit!

    I know what I'd like to do for this year, and next year, too, which is a little distracting. But I have to start actually building it now. (What do you mean, it doesn't just self-assemble?!)

    So that's where I'm at, in need to stop procrastinating stage. I get worried that things won't come out how I want them to, but then I have to remind myself that they'll never happen at all if I don't at least start trying to make them. And no time to fail like the present, so at least I'll have a chance to do 'em over!

    Wow, that is cool! Do you already know what the monster will look like? I can't wait to see it in action. Are you going to label the crate or leave it plain?

    That's a good idea - I love when people here lay out the step-by-step.

    Planning is going well - I wrote up a brief description of what (I think) I want to do, and now I just have to draw it, and figure out what I should make the different creatures out of. And how they're going to be attached and lit. I'm having fun picturing it, so that's a good sign.

    Well, I'm very curious to see it! But I'll wait.

    Clean garage is a good thing!

    So how is the prop-building coming along? I admire you for having gotten started already.

    I *may* have come up with an idea I like better than my first one - sort of a battle between the light and darkness at the heart of things. Still not sure, but maybe I just better start building it and see what happens, or else I'm gonna wind up with nada nada nada. Which is fine too. I've always thought that if I had a house where I was consistently decorating, but then one year I wanted or needed to take a break, I would do a "Germ Warfare" theme - basically a lit up gov't facility sign on a post in the middle of the yard listing all the germs in the air and warning people to enter at their own risk. Veeeery easy.

    I'm always around just not much to contribute these days so mostly just responding to picture comments and stuff. The big trip is coming soon. You can tell because the weather always gets nice when we aren't gonna be around.

    That sounds like a crazy complex build but that's likely what it takes to really challenge you these days. It'll probably be a couple months before I get into Halloween mode but I still like to keep an eye open so I don't miss too much.

    Hey Bam! Not much happening here. Just trying to get some stuff straightened up and get our trip sorted...still a ways away. I've got another small work project in progress. Nothing huge but every little bit helps.

    Birthday was OK. All eyes are kinda focused on the trip ahead so we kept things pretty low key. Not much going on housewife either. Just groaning over the amount of snow.

    Tools sound like an ideal gift for you. You're gonna be unstoppable this Halloween!

    Well, not trying to set off any fire alarms.

    Holidays were good. We put up mostly indoor decorations for Solstice/Christmas since we're renters. Our landlords upstairs put up lights though (this being the first Christmas after they took over the house we're in, we didn't know what they would do.) So that was nice.

    I'm totally impressed you're working on Halloween already. Can't wait to see the new project!

    Still not sure what I want to do this coming year. My only idea so far seems kind of "blah" to me. Maybe I'll let my nieces set the theme this time! Although they're bloodthirsty little things - I might find it too shocking.

    Other than that, just work work work. Which is fine - it'll help to fund the big splash-out at Home Depot if I do manage to come up with something I'd like to build. We'll see.

    You're welcome. Nothing much planned, but that is because I will probably just go with the ideas that I had for last Halloween, since we got rained out and I did not get to institute them. How about you?
