This is what happens on Halloween:
7 a.m.: Have Kahlua & coffee with my Halloween music
8 a.m. Start setting up my big props and other things at 8 a.m. Usually I'm finished about 11 or 12 in the afternoon.
12 noon: With cocktail in hand, I finish setting up the food and drink area.
Breaktime!! More cocktails!!!
1 p.m.: Get showered and dressed in my costume and have a another cocktail.
2 p.m.: With cocktail in hand, give everything a once over and "tweak" anything that needs it.
3 p.m.: TOTs start to arrive and the fun begins:jol:
3:30 p.m.: After refreshing my cocktail, I start putting out some snacks and appetizers and start the crockpots and food going.
4 p.m.: Hubby comes home, shakes his head in disbelief, and starts to put on his costume while I making him a cocktail too.
5 p.m.-9 p.m.: Open house is in full swing. More cocktails!!
After 9 p.m.: Walk around my haunt and take in the beauty it has to offer. Then me and hubby go TOTing for drinks around the neighborhood and enjoy talking to the neighbors. Now, if this is on a Friday and Saturday night, we will also go to the local bars and TOt for drinks. But before that we starting bringing in some of the props that we don't want to go missing.
After that: If this is on a weekday, I get out of my costume and into my Halloween pjs and watch a new Halloween DVD with popcorn and, you guessed it, a cocktail.
I usually fall asleep probably from all the food and goodies I ate all day
Nov. 1st - Wake up late, have coffee and look in the guestroom, bitch, start putting everything away in their perspective boxes.
Eat lunch and have a cocktail if I'm feeling up to it. I usually have one.
Clean up the outside.
Chill for the rest of the friggin day!
This is a true story. This is actually how it goes from beginning to end for me. I live for Halloween and I make the best of my time on that day and celebrate it to it's fullest. :jol:
