The Nightmare Before Halloween

Before I even start this post, I want to most sincerely thank everyone who stopped by my last post and left such sweet comments.  It somehow felt like coming home.  I haven't yet made it around to everyone's blogs for visits....somehow that still feels a bit walking into the middle of a conversation and not knowing what to say....
But I am trying.

Ok...On with this post.
Those who know me well, know that I adore Halloween...and I'm sure that you are expecting me to do my usual posts of Halloween decor, etc.

Well, Mr. Bone Jangles here is about the extent of my Halloween decorating this year.

And I am not certain how long he can even stay.

You see.....  As if my life weren't crazy and chaotic enough, we decided to undertake a HUGE remodel project....somewhat at the spur of the moment....
One day we were talking about replacing our kitchen countertops, and the next day I was looking at this:

 And soon, there were two gaping holes in either side of our house.

And true to crow luck, the monsoons struck.

With a vengeance.....

And the floods came.

And the carpenters didn't.  :o(

So, now we have not only an unfinished mess, but a flooded basement to deal with.

(Official Site Supervisor)

If I didn't know better, I'd be thinking Bones just might be on to something.

Why oh why when it rains does it always pour?
I can't wait to see when all done.
Keep looking up. And give your sweetie hugs for me.
Woolie Blessings

Construction never, ever goes as planned (at least not in my world!). Good luck - hope the rains stop, the snow stays away, and the sun shines bright on you!

Catching up too and yes hard to do! I guess this is where people say life happens and you deal with what you are dealt. Some times I wish I could have a new set of cards!
Happy to see your posts again. Hang in there with the remodel and mess. Maybe one day there will be a bit of laughter in hind sight!
