Motivation


O.k., o.k., I know I haven't done anything in a long time on here. I've had a lot of stuff going on since the beginning of the year that has kept me from posting anything on this blog, or building any props so far this year. Lots of work, training, kid's baseball games, school work, stuff like that. The biggest news is that we found out on Valentine's day that we will be having another child sometime around October 22nd. There were some complications at first so we didn't tell anyone because the doctor told us there was a less than 50% chance that the baby would make it. Long story short, everything is o.k. now and hopefully things will stay that way.

Needless to say, I haven't been very motivated as far as Halloween things go, but all it takes is an occasional visit to Pumpkinrot's What's Brewing Page to give me that kick in the rear to get started. Also, I visited my friend Ross over the weekend who runs the other big haunt (The Homestead Haunt) in our neighborhood and saw what all he had been building. Let's just say he has been very busy and I absolutely cannot wait to post some pictures of his work. I think today I might get in the workshop and at least get some materials together to start something and after that, who knows?

Don't feel badly, Grim. I haven't started, either, though I keep casting longing glances at my rolls of chicken wire!
Soon, though!
