So, it’s November and while I know that November always follows October, I feel like we’ve skipped a whole season or something. We went from pretty much summer temperatures to cold + rain in a matter of days and I am not ready for the holidays and for this year to be over.
Honestly, I don’t even know what will be going on this month. I had secretly hoped that I would still semi-spontaneously sign up and run the Rock’n’Roll Half Marathon in Las Vegas on the 13th (and meet up with a few blog friends while I am at it), but this is most definitely not going to happen (for a few reasons) and it makes me sad, but sometimes you have to be an adult and responsible and make hard decisions. Sigh. Also, my running has been rather sporadic in the last few weeks, so I am not really prepared for another half (although I wish I was).
I am looking forward to Thanksgiving weekend, but I wish it was last year when we were hosting my dear childhood friend Silke. Instead it’s probably just going to be us again this year. I don’t mind, I like quiet weekends at home and honestly, I could use the time for some holiday preparations.
And then there is NaBloPoMo. If you don’t know what NaBloPoMo – National Blog Posting Month – is, read about it here.
Ok, truth be told, I am totally unprepared this time. NaBloPoMo totally snuck up on me this year and I am a little overwhelmed at the thought of trying to blog every single day for the whole month after struggling to get back into my normal routine for the last two weeks. But, I haven’t skipped a NaBloPoMo in the past 10 years (WHAT!?) and I sure as hell won’t let it happen this year when it’s my 10th anniversary of blogging my way through November. I won’t promise anything at this point, but I am re-committing to it once again and just try to do the best I can.
November has always been the ‘official’ national blog posting month and there are going to be prompts (I think) and even a badge to display on your blog. I am looking forward to coming up with more frequent posts, maybe even some totally random ones, and as always, I’ll be taking advantage of the opportunity for a little Q & A. If you’re a new reader, hello! This is your chance to say hi and ask me a question! If you have been reading my blog for a while, there might still be something that you never had the chance to ask. So, ask away!
I have a question for you, too.
Are you participating in NaBloPoMo? You know, I’d love to read more from you.
