decorating is hard

so I've somehow managed to get behind w/ my holiday decorating.  I had hoped that if I started thinking about what I wanted to do waaaay before the holiday I would have enough time.  that maybe my laziness and general inability to pull things together would be equaled out by my preemptive planning.  no such luck.  I was collecting ideas for my halloween party back in August, yet here it is - a week until my party - and I still haven't even bought most of the supplies I will need.  I don't even have a costume!  I really don't understand how time gets away from me so fast.

so I guess I have to buy things early as well.  and plan a concrete day to actually put them up.  I had sort of planned to put my porch decorations up last Friday, but it was waaaaay too windy to try and string up spiderwebs.  also I didn't have most of the items I would need.  ugh.

I already know what I want to do for fall/November/Thanksgiving, but again - I need to buy the things I intend to use to decorate.  I need two corn stalk bundles, gourds (which I did buy on Fall Activities Day), some pumpkins (hopefully I can just use the reverse side of the pumpkins we carve), and maybe a hay bale or two.  I wish I had some sort of rustic bench or table for the front porch as well, but that might be asking a bit much.  I'll have to keep an eye out next time we go antiquing.  I wonder how much a bench like that costs...

anyway, that's the list of things I need to purchase by 11/01, along with all the last minute halloween things.  this is all very distressing, what with the money diary and all.  I don't want to know how much money I am wasting jsut to decorate my house.  but alas, it must be done.

oh, and maybe I'd also like some fall leaf garland.  my parents had some, I think.  I wonder where they got it...
