Last weekend MacGyver and I went to some estate sales and a few garage sales. My mom has been telling me for a few years now how she’d like to have a Lane cedar chest. Since I have found 4 or 5 of them she wanted me to look for one for her. This weekend I found one and even better, I got it for 10 bucks.
I need to do a little bit of touch up on it to get it looking as good as it did when it was first built but I didn’t want to leave it in the front of my garage. I just finished the dresser I had sitting out there for the past 3 weeks and I have finally started to get my respect back in the neighborhood so I opted to leave it in my car.
MacGyver was okay with that for a few days because he doesn’t really want it near his garage anyway but yesterday he said I should probably take it out of my car because it blocks a little of my view and if I decide to take the dogs anywhere, there’s no place to put them. Little does he know, Boomer rides in the front seat and Hank sits on my lap and practically drives so I don’t need the back seat.
But the real reason I want to keep the chest in my car is because it’s a great hiding place. I quickly discovered that I can hide all my purchases right inside the chest and then move them to the house when MacGyver isn’t home. And since my mom isn’t coming until November, I can shop the entire month of October without having to explain my obsession with the Dollar Tree or Macy’s. It’s a win win. I just had to think of a reason to keep it in the car.
And then it occurred to me, Halloween. I could get that fancy paint that comes off with soap and water and name my SUV ‘Halloween Hearse’ and then I could just dress the cedar chest up like a mini coffin. It’s perfect. I’m doing it.
So if you see a Ford Escape dressed up like a hearse blasting this music
It’s just me.
WTF, it’s Wednesday and I am sooooo excited for Halloween.
Have you gotten a costume yet?
