For those of you living under a bloggy rock, NaBloPoMo is National Blog Posting Month. You blog everyday for the entire month of November. Simple enough right? Pfft...
I considered signing up, but I already knew this would just be one more thing to add to my long list of failures and or uncompleted tasks. And a long list it is, you see I have this thing called a life, sorry as it is, it comes with it's own extensive list of requirements.
I often wonder what it is I do everyday that keeps me so busy. I spin wheels, I take one step forward to take two or seventy eleven steps back. Halloween is behind me, Thanksgiving is approaching and Jenni, oh thoughtful Jenni reminds me daily how many days until the Fat Guy cometh. Forty six days today if you must know.
FORTY SIX days people!! I have my Secret Santa package all set to be mailed. Well not exactly, I have items in a box, while I think of a creative way, an over the top way to make my package stand out, because that's just how I am. I'll end up just wrapping it up and mailing it off to a person who lives on a Lane and hope for the best. I have an ornament to purchase for the ornament exchange and send off to my swap partner who lives on a Road.
I'm not planning Thanksgiving dinner this year. Even though I've passed the hat to Augie Dawgs and we technically eat at her house, I still have to do most of the preparations. Not this year! I'm off to visit Big Brother, the SIL and Babcia (my mom) on The Ranch. This year I will be in charge of nothing. Well I'll volunteer to do the dishes, because let's face it, to this city girl that is far more appealing than mucking stalls and doing whatever it is you do to horses! Oh and I will eat bacon! Because SIL fries up bacon and it doesn't frighten her in the least bit.
Which brings me back to what the heck is it that I do all day, that keeps me so busy?? So busy that I can't blog every day during the month of November! Who's idea was November? In my opinion February would be a much better month for this challenge. February, you know, the short month. The one where you'd only have to blog 28 posts. The month where it's so cold here on The Avenue that there is nothing to do but blog.
So today, November 9th, 2008 AD...in my warped little mind, I declare that NaBloPoMo be moved to February, for me at least.
I will continue to spend the month of November spinning wheels and checking with Jenni for the official countdown.
