They're ooky and they're spooky.....

but I think they are kind kooky too. On Monday, as I drove the big one to school I passed a house. It was a cute, well kept house. Nothing out of the ordinary. Well, except for the fact that it was decked out for Halloween already. I was tempted to stop the car and knock on their door. You know, just to make sure they knew what the date was.

I've noticed every year there is a competition with a few houses on my street as to who can get their Halloween decorations up first. I guess if you aren't first you just have no spirit? Well. pffffft on all of them! I love Halloween. It is, by far, my favorite holiday. And when October first rolls around I'll be up bright and early decorating. But until then my cobwebs and skeletons will remain packed neatly away.

I guess the reason this bothers me is that it seems like we are all just rushing through our lives. Instead of focusing on and enjoying the here and now, we're concerned with the happenings of a month from now. If there is one thing I've learned over the past 9 months, it's this. Don't take things for granted. Life can and does change in the blink of an eye. We need to immerse ourselves in all we can today, cause who knows what tomorrow holds for us?

You are so right about the life can change in the blink of an eye. Have you been listening to Carrie Underwood's song Carnival Ride...hehe BTW, love that song.
