Subject: RE: BS: October+ fall declutter & accountability
I've done a couple of loads of laundry, picked up and put away odds and ends here and there, put the dishes in to soak, vacuumed and supervised Morgan vacuuming, as well as his taking out the trash and litter which Papa emptied from the boxes. I also decluttered my desk, again, though it still looks cluttered...or maybe more like controlled chaos. LOL.

Also took Morgan to pick out a pumpkin for our house, stopped to get candy to hand out, then came home and supervised his making a jack o'lantern out of it, after I claimed the privilege of cutting out the top. He's a great kid, but I noticed he didn't mind Mama getting her hands in the slime and the goo to clean it out, which I am happy to do. Love this holiday and all that comes with it.

Morgan also moved a couple of plant pots from off the front step for me, I moved a couple more, then hung a wonderful ghost we bought a few years ago complete with upraised arms which the gossamer material hangs from, plus I added a kind of egg-shaped part from an old ghost we had which shakes and says "wooooo-ooooo" when it is touched or the wind blows. It is attached to the "neck" under the material and also lights up. There is a steady breeze right now, so it is turned off. I hope my batteries don't run down too fast, though we probably won't have too many kids. I also hung up purple bat lights in the front window.

As it is Roger's birthday, my brother will be over at 5p to say happy b-day and to help with the little kids. He loves seeing them in costume, etc. Rog is playing on Second Life and seems to be enjoying having nothing to do. He sure gets around fast on the office chair. He stands up, puts his knee on it, then scoots with his other leg and hands.
