I did something yesterday that I'm not sure I should be proud of...I had a weak moment. I was just going to let Halloween start "trickling" into the house, but one box led to another. Before I knew it, I was on a roll and had unpacked 3 boxes of my Halloween decorations. I stopped. This is enough for now. I'll wait until next week to even think about getting another box out.
I love Halloween...it drags in the Fall. By now, we want cooler weather here in AZ. And it comes so slowly, almost stubbornly. Decorating for Halloween makes it feel like there is light at the end of the scorching hot tunnel. That Fall weather is just around the STILL-SUMMER corner. There's hope at the end of the sweaty day. Will we ever be able to wear a light, little sweater? It doesn't ever seem like the day will come...but Halloween takes my mind off of the negative and focuses it on the FUN.
