November marks the start of a sort of 'blogathan' where willing Bloggers agree to post every day during the month of November. For some, this is not a big deal at all (heck, I know Bloggers who post more than once a day!). For others, this is a huge task.
Had I signed up, I would have fallen into the latter group. My goal is to publish a post at least once a week, and I'm not always successful.
Now, 10 days into November, I am so happy I didn't decide to join up with NaBloPoMo, and you should be too. Why? Because here is what my posts would have looked like from November 1st through today. Trust me, it has been a laugh-riot here in the Fairly Odd Household.
November 1st: My cat Zack is not doing so well. The kids are in a candy-induced coma.
November 2nd: Buried my dad today (he was cremated almost 3 years ago but finally buried as per his wishes). Cry.
November 3rd: Zack is still sick. We're experiencing a monsoon outside. Busy, busy, busy.
November 4th: Cat = sicker. Kids = hopped up on sugar.
November 5th: Oldest daughter's "Nature" class and then trip to zoo. Kids tired. Mom exhausted. Cat sick.
November 6th: Go to make pottery but son hates it. Homeschooling not going so smoothly. Cat? Sick.
November 7th: Awful, horrible day. Cry about cat all day long. Post this. Kids driving me crazy. Why am I homeschooling?
November 8th: Better day with kids, but it's hard to watch a pet die, slowly.
November 9th: Zack isn't walking. Sleep on couch with him all night. Our couch kills my back.
Today, November 10th: Oldest's last soccer game---so cold my face, fingers and toes freeze. Zack nearing his end. Tell him it is ok to go to the land of unlimited cat treats, easy-to-catch mice and loads of warm laps.
Is it too much to ask that the next 20 days be better than the first 10?
