This year feels a little different…
I know what you’re thinking, and yes I know how much that statement has been run into the ground and repeated over and over, but it really is different.
Our kids normally enjoy trick or treating on Halloween around whatever neighborhood we happen to be living in and last year they had so much fun that we were all excited for Halloween 2020. It was great! Almost every house participated, handing out candy or decorating their houses like nobody’s business.
One house even had an old hearse in the yard!
We discussed how we would decorate the house and maybe even host a haunted house for 2020. I love to scare people. Actually, the whole family has a history of feeling the need to jump scare random family members on any day of the week, so this was right up our alley.
Needless to say, none of that is happening.
To be honest, I don’t even want to pull out one Halloween decoration much less create a the fabulous haunted house for all to enjoy.
It’s not the pandemic that has halted our Halloween plans.
We are moving in a month and most of our stuff is boxed up and in the garage. I know where the Halloween decorations are, I’m just too tired to dig my way through the other boxes to get to them.
We are in the process of trying to find and buy a home in a totally different state.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m excited for our next chapter, it’s just hard turning the pages to get there.
I know that once we are settled into our new house and I’ve got the office all set up, that all of the struggles and stress that we have been going through will seem like a lifetime away.
Next year, we are definitely decorating for Halloween and might even host that fabulous haunted house in our new neighborhood.
Until then, I’d love to see your Halloween decorations! Feel free to post them on my Facebook page!
P.S. Stay tuned for updates on our new home!
