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...

Sorry you're feeling that way Wilbret. I know this will be a hard year for many. But maybe a shift in your plans will end up giving you a new perspective. I'm not sure about the status of our party this year. I think we are going to take it a bit easy this Halloween. Spending less and not doing the party really means we'll have more time to focus on just enjoying the season, watching more movies, finding Halloween activities in the community and concentrating more on the TOTs.

I think I'm going to print out what creepyhomemaker wrote. Comforting and inspiring words.
