NaBloPo…No Mo?

National Blog Posting Month, I salute you.  Bloggers everywhere are posting daily in November.  I believe I participated once.  Or twice.  This year, as you may have noticed, I did not.

Okay, fair enough: This year, as you may have noticed, I sort of forgot I have a blog.

It’s the Tuesday before Thanksgiving.  I braved the grocery store and survived, without a headache, even.  I lifted weights with my teammates and set a new personal planking record.  I read a few chapters of Jack Aubrey.  I planned pies.

{Pumpkin (because my husband loves it) and apple (because my mother doesn’t love pumpkin), in case you wondered.  Me?  It’s pie – leave out the nuts, and I’m all over it, pumpkin, apple, rhubarb…you name it; I’ll eat it.}

Nicky is working on his ever-going project for National History Day.  This, people, is a huge undertaking.  I am serious when I tell you I never had to do a project of this scope in middle school, and I can’t recall having to do one in high school, either.  The colleges, however, they want the kids prepareder now than they did twenty years ago, though, so the thirteen-year-olds get to do three-month-long research projects.  Wow.  On the upside, I am learning an awful lot about Japanese-American Internment during World War II, and oh my.  Why did I not learn about this in school?  Why was I in my 30′s before I even knew our country did this?

Kalen is doing something schoolworky…I think Scholastic News Weekly?  Jason is working from home.  I am typing.  (I don’t like being left off the list.)  Kalen has a piano lesson in a couple of hours, and I coped by adding Stouffer’s frozen enchiladas to my cart during my Turkey Day grocery run earlier.  Healthy, no.  Tasty, yes.  Easy, yes.  Two out of three is a win for a Tuesday night in a place and time where/when it is dark by four-thirty and I feel like dinner time should be bed time.

In other words, Happy Thanksgiving.

I miss you.  I’ll write again soon, I promise.

    Always good to hear your voice!

    Yeah, I too have noticed that middle school kids now have to be much more prepareder. Which needs to be a word.

    Good luck with the pies and Happy Thanksgiving to y’all!

    I’ve missed your blogging. I stopped coming by because there were no updates for so long. But I put you in my reader that I keep promising I will check regularly (I don’t) and find I have missed a holiday post.
