It’s more than half way through October. Normally, I’d be deep into a Halloween project, working like mad to get it done in time for either a party or trick-or-treat night.
Not this year.
Yes, goblins and vamps, Halloween is here again. Since it’s my favorite time of the year, what better way to celebrate than with a party?
We skipped the party this year but we did the yard haunt.
I just wish the weather would cooperate. It was cold and snowed – yes, SNOWED – though, happily, it didn’t stick.
It’s my usual dilemma: Too much to do and not enough time, energy, or financial resources to do it all. Like everybody these days, it’s a constant struggle to balance a busy life. I can’t do it all, despite what all those people say about multi-tasking.
When I multi-task, I just get a bunch of things done half-assed.
Then my perfectionism rears its ugly head.
Then I explode.
Then I have to apologize. (And I hate to apologize.)
Last night, Halloween, was cold, cold, cold – we even had snow! However, the show must go on and so did our Yard Haunt 2010.
