Trying hard to get in the mood...

It has been a TOUGH couple years...

Started a new job last spring that took me away from my family (and brand new baby boy) for 4 months, and we lived in temporary housing until the week of Halloween... then we moved into a rental house, so we only put out a couple things. First time in 6 years we didn't have our big annual bash, too.

This year, we are still in the rental house and our old house has yet to sell some 16 months later. It has been hard to get into the spirit. Normally I would have been working on a new project and prepping hard in the garage by now. I have yet to do one thing. A few months ago, I went thru my stuff with great intentions but never followed thru.

I haven't even had the stomach to shop around and see what's out there... normally I'm prowling around looking for the first sightings and stalking websites for new releases!

I need some inspiration! Anybody struggling with motivation? I've been wanting to plan our party, but in a new town I'm not sure what type of turnout we'd get, and it would be mostly work associates...

I lost my gusto this year too! I was all fired up until my daughter told me she was going to throw me a birthday party. Same weekend of the planned Halloween party. She and my grandson are living with me through the end of this year. She doesn't really like Halloween as much as I do, so she has a hard time with my deco's to boot! Sigh! The birthday party was going to be a surprise until she realized I had started planning a Halloween party.

I'm in a new neighborhood and haven't seen many kids. I'll just do something for the ToT'ers, but I don't expect many, if any will show. This city just isn't much into Halloween.

I like what was said in an earlier thread though...Don't let a Saturday Halloween slip by, much less any Halloween. I hope my gusto comes back when I start decorating the yard. Good luck on your house and keep the chin up...Happy Haunting!
