Turning the Page

November 1, 2009

A new month, and a reminder that some celebrate NaBloPoMo at this time of year.  I can’t quite make the commitment to blog every day, but it was enough to inspire me to blog, even though all I have is a photo from a few weeks ago, and a quick list.


  • Fit in one last beautiful day at the park today.  But the park is less relaxing now that Turtle can climb up steps but not down.  Still likes the swing, though.  And splashing in the disgusting water pooled at the bottom of the slide.
  • Impressed again by the kids at my church.  These days I’m teaching the 3rd-5th graders, and that’s such a fun age.  Very capable, and yet very much still kids.
  • Watching baseball, again.  I am so bad at watching sports on TV–I don’t think I could tell you who was ahead right now.  Although I’m afraid it’s the Yankees.  And I’ve spent enough time watching baseball around here to know that’s a bad thing.
  • Realizing that November means it’s time to start celebrating Christmas.  And a bit overwhelmed by first stint planning a Christmas for a baby.  He was around last year, but there were no plans.  Shoot, I was proud of myself for staying awake through presents and dinner, that was about where we were then.  I’ve, of course, bookmarked about 50 projects I want to do–decorations, presents, whatnot.  I just need to keep reminding myself that there will be many more Christmases with the little guy, I don’t need to do everything this year.
  • Wondering how long it’ll take the baby to figure out that we have fallen behind one hour.  Whoever came up with the idea of daylight savings time clearly did not have small children.  Still, happy that Indiana has decided to join the rest of the country in observance.  I wouldn’t want my comments to be seen as anti-clock-changing.  That’s important political stuff around here, and I want my loyalties to be clear.
  • The Jim Carry Christmas Carol movie looks terrible.  The American Express commercial with all the inanimate-objects-turned-happy-faces on the other hand, makes me giddy every time it comes on.

There, now, that wasn’t that bad.  I could do this for 30 days, right?

    My poor blog is so neglected. Maybe I should try and write every day this month.
