I must be watching . . .

too much pre-Halloween T.V. these days.  (Ghost Adventures, Paranormal State, and other generally creepy shows.)
As I was playing around on the Internet this evening,  My best buddy, Midnight, who is always snuggled at my feet, curled up under the computer table to do just that.  In the process, he must have laid on top of one of Baby Brooklyn's dolls that she cast aside.  In the dead silence of 1:30 AM, I hear this creepy little baby doll laugh.  For the longest second of my life, my entire body froze, and my heart did a little skip.  When my brain finally placed the sound, I exhaled and rolled my eyes, muttering to myself about what a dumbass I am.
(Midnight, kept right on snoring and never batted an eye.)

I've lost my mind

So what else is new?  Yeah,  I know,  that's a lame excuse for neglecting my blog, but it's the only one I've got.  Things around here have have been absolutely crazy.  The kids back to school, trying to get every thing for the haunt cranked out, Roy and Nick trying to stay busy with their new "business", feeling total panic and chaos. . .  Trust me, you really wouldn't have wanted to read any of the gibberish that I would have posted over the past month any way.

I guess the good news is, I'm still here and I haven't killed anyone - so far.  I'm getting down to the wire on all this Halloween madness, less than two weeks until the big night.  Sadly, I've had to scratch  my two big projects. (again!)  The mausoleum and flying crank ghost will have to wait for next year, (hopefully)  and so will my horse drawn hearse project. (sigh)  But our theme, "A wedding to DIE for," is still happening as planned.  For the most part, I'm down to the details.  I've got the front lawn cemetery all set up, and the transformation of turning the garage into an asylum chapel has begun.  (Of course, it would be really helpful if I could get my hubby more involved :/ )  I just hope it all goes as planned and doesn't come off as being too lame.  My biggest fear is that it will either be too cold or rainy, and no one will show up.  The fact that Halloween falls on a Sunday this year makes every thing pretty risky to begin with.  However, I did manage to get the haunt listed on Fox 4's Spook Central site and I'm planning on spending tomorrow getting some invitations and flyers printed off to mail out and hand out at the elementary and Middle school.  Maybe that will help?

Well, it's late and I still have stuff to get done tonight.  I promise, I will be better at posts. Oh! and I'll get photos posted of the front yard soon.  If you want to see the Chapel, you'll have to wait until November for photos - or better yet, come see it in person Halloween night !!

Okay, back to prop building . . .
