It’s the first day of the eleventh month today. Last night was Halloween and besides the glaring absence of Tootsie pops, it was a good night. My smalls ran like demons from house to house, my butterfly not even breaking a sweat to keep up with her cow, vampire and mortal combat Spiderman brothers. That girl was made for trick or treating, I tell you.
But, today is a new day. The costumes are (mostly) put away. I can’t pry the butterfly costume off Miss M. so I’m calling it a new dress-up outfit. She’s been asking for a ‘dancing dress’ and this fits the bill fairly well. 😉
The WordPress blog today informed me (and probably a couple other people) that today was the beginning of “NaBloPoMo — National Blog Posting Month” and the idea is to blog each day for the entire month. Anyone who has read The Keswick Blog more than twice (all three of you), know that I have issues with blogging consistently. So this NaBloPoMo thingy may be just the thing for me to break my non-blogging habit, blow off the mental paralysis that prevents me from blogging with any kind of predictability. Of course, I have an excuse. I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t, right? My excuse is being too busy, and by too busy I mean that I let myself get bogged down with stupid shit that doesn’t matter, make me happy or add real value to my life, at the expense of doing something (blogging, sleeping, walking, playing, reading) that actually does make me happy. I’m an idiot. Go figure. I didn’t see that conclusion coming at all.
I hate that.
So this month, I’ll make every effort to blog something everyday. I’m not promising that I’ll have much to say a lot of the time, or that what I do say will be terribly interesting, deep or amusing. It would appear that my sparkling wit takes time to formulate appropriate readable prose.
