Countdown to Halloween Opening Day
My town got a Spirit store this year. I was shocked when I first learned of this, as our town is not known to get things like popup retail, except the fireworks stands for the 4th of July (which are usually put on by local sports teams and nonprofit organizations). So I was more than excited about Spirit coming. I have visited the shop several times since it opened, but still haven't made any purchase. I have some costume ideas in mind but am still narrowing them down. I noticed how the cheeseburger tunic is the same price at both Spirit and Kmart. I've considered that one, but will probably decide against it. I'm planning to decide soon. The store incidentally took over the town's old Staples building as the office superstore exited our town at the end of June.
My decorations at home went up this weekend in order to be up for all of October. Started on Saturday night, stuffing the pumpkin bags with crumpled newspaper and rigging the lights over the kitchen window with suction cups (I'll leave the cups in the window for the Christmas lights in December).
That's it for today. Let the Countdown begin!
