I love Halloween, it’s a great holiday and a really good excuse to pretend to be someone else, at least for a few hours. It seems that there is always something going on that prevents us from throwing an awesome Halloween party. Next year, people — I promise. Cool Halloween party at our house – right now the house is a disassembled, messy, construction zone while we remodel the den…

The Halloween decorations weren’t even all unboxed — how sad.  But we’re shooting for it all to be done for the holiday season so watch out — tinsel will rule!


Den destruction – uh I mean renovation – is underway. The room is emptied of all items of furniture, lamps, dust bunnies and a good part of Jinx (at least in fur). I am happy to report that there are many single socks in my house that are at this moment happily being reunited with their mates – tearful reunions all around.

In the meantime, the boys were given the opportunity to do some destruction and here are the action shots. Tom kindly removed the sledgehammer from the boys’ hands before they were able to damage each other or anything that we might not be replacing.

Well on the bedroom update scene, the furniture is in and we are putting the finishing touches on it. We are still waiting on the new mattress which prevents us from completely putting things together as the frame is meant for a Cal King and we have standard King mattress in there now. Next is the closet organizer so I can find my clothes again. Going from tote to tote looking for stuff is getting old.

The den is looking more welcoming, which is nice. The furniture is in there and it is downright homey looking again.

Now I am off to bed since I have to get up in the morning, sift through for clothes for the trip to Boston and head out the door. Next few posts will be from the road if mobile wordpress cooperates.  Either that or I will use twitter – so it will be short bursts.  Wish me luck – camping out at the Museum tomorrow night!
