day 2

I haven't shaved.  Have you?

It sounds old, but October flew by.  Seems like it was just beginning.  I remember thinking that I should put together a fun costume for the crosswalk, but alas.   I woke up one day,  it was Halloween, I had no costume.  Fail.

True, the vest IS hideous but doesn't count as a costume.

It's dumb Friday, though, and I'm feeling refreshed.  I was filling in my tutoring schedule for the upcoming month, and there is some nice breathing room.  The back-to-school testing frenzy has mellowed as of last weekend, and it's nice to be in non-frenzy mode.

The new page of the calendar also brings a reminder to keep with the daily blogging.  November is the month that started it all.

NaBloPoMo November 2012

So we're typing our hearts out.  Care to join?

November is also the month of Thanksgiving.  I think we've all been to a Thanksgiving dinner or two (or more) that we attended only out of obligation to family or work, etc.  So here's a little thing with me.  When I meet someone new, get to know them a little, I inwardly assess and ponder if they are someone I would like to have over for Thanksgiving, as opposed to the obligatory table mates.

I do it with celebrities and fictional characters too sometimes.

You're all invited.*

  1. So this month will complete a full year of blogging! I'm seriously impressed! (Not that I ever doubted you could do it!) I hope when you've finished the month, you'll write about the pros and cons of daily blogging. I've enjoyed knowing there would always be a dose of Abby wisdom here each day. But what a challenge it must have been at times!

    *I would come to your potluck Thanksgiving. Just don't ask me to bring the gravy. I can NOT make gravy!

    **Yes, I shaved today.

    1. Hmmm... pros and cons of daily blogging. You've just given me an idea for a blog post, thanks!
      Heck if I can make gravy! I'm sure you can bring something yummy to cover up the fact that the gravy is awful.

  2. I got the perfect dish in mind!
    Wait. Nope. That won't work... I'll need something that can make it through Kansas. But count me in! ;)
    I haven't shaved either. Perhaps I'll start tracking my progress.
    And I vow to blog MORE this month. How's that for a start?

    1. Yeah, maybe we can do progress updates of our non-shaving like the guys do!

  4. Has it been a full year? Wow, you definitely set the bar for the rest of us. Congrats!

    I can bring a green bean casserole. That and maybe some pecan pie.

    No, I have not shaved, yet.
