Halloween is just around the corner!


Halloween is really a week or so away from today. Now, our family doesn’t go over the top on decorations but we have some good stuff out on display. Usually, we forget about an upcoming holiday until half way through the month. In this example, we finally rolled out the Halloween decorations last weekend (October 15). Again, the month was already being half over.

I like holidays but I don’t like the work involved in them. The work being me digging out the various decorations from their hiding places under the stairs, out in the storage shack, etc. My son is very good at setting them up but not as well as helping taking them down. That particularly fun job ends up with me.

Christmas is one of the worst. We have lots of holiday lights and sometimes they work and sometimes they don’t. I keep trying to clean out the worthless light sets but they always seem to come back. I also don’t enjoy the task of climbing up onto the roof and stringing the lights along the gutter.

Some people would say “skip the gutter” and that would be the same thing as saying “my house is the loser house in the neighborhood”. My neighbor likes to keep that title to himself (and his wife). He and his wife never put up lights so they look like the Grinch’s and they act like it too. Let’s say that I can’t wait for that “For Sale” sign to appear in their front yard.

As always your comments and feelings are welcome!

My midlife crisis made me want to live simply. Unfortunately, there isn't much simple about it most days.
