Are you talking about the Mother Nature that brought us snow on Halloween? That was crazy. Happy to hear that you will be able to use your display this year.@TerriG you and I are in the same boat. I have not been a member for a very long time, but I’ve appreciated every person on the boards.
I don’t use social media sites really. Just seems like a lot of hate circling out there. Life is just too short! If you are using social media and it’s bringing light into your life, that’s great! I just can’t support the majority of word vomit out there. Not every idea in my head needs an audience. Just saying!
With COVID-19 still making many of our lives difficult, I am curious what the boards will look like this year. I know our family was impacted too and we are just now starting to return to a shade of normal. The good news is Mother Nature killed our display last year so it was not used. Plan to just tweak things ever so slightly and put it all out this year. Can’t wait to see what everyone else is working on and best wishes to all that displays aren’t destroyed by weather, virus, dinosaurs, asteroids, murder hornets or whatever else is coming this year!
So glad for you!! Congrats on the new job and better income !!!!!!I've had quite the change of heart within the past 6 weeks. I had lost my job prior to the nationwide shut down. The unemployment paid enough that I wasn't worrried about losing anything but it put a severe damped on any extra spending. I started a new job during the first week of May (that paid more and further enabled Halloween shopping).
I've bought enought lighting materials to light up my yard as well as a few others if the need arises. I've been combing local FB & Craigslist, looking for anyone who has Halloween decorations for sale (slim pickins usually). I keep looking at the major retailers to see if anything catches my eye.
I had really low expectations after last year and all the joy that has been 2020. But now that there are only 133 days left. THE 19 WEEK COUNTDOWN IS ON!
I've been here for a quite a few years, far longer just lurking before I ever joined and posted. When the first changes came down the pike, I bitched along with everyone else about them. But I also adjusted to them and found a work-around for almost every problem thrown at us.For me it is more than the buying of the site and the cosmetic changes... the vibe around here changed too. Maybe it is because of how many left just as much as the changes themselves. Before then it almost felt community owned
