You know what's funny?
About three weeks ago I said to myself, "I'm going to try and start blogging every day."
Then I got super busy, and I've been lucky to post once a week. Whoops. Blogging tends to come in dead last on my priority list when I've got a lot to do.
So I'm going to try this again, but this time I'm telling all six of you that blogging once a day is my new goal.
Not forever. Unless I really really love it, I just don't have enough material to blog about every day for the next who-knows-how-long. Well, unless you want to hear about the strange conversations I have with our children (trust me, you don't), or about the quick-draw contests Derek and I have in the evenings when we've both had too much Halloween candy.
Oh, calm down. We don't use actual guns, people. He draws the multi-tool he keeps on his belt and I draw the inhaler that's always in my pocket. Duh.
Anyway, starting... today, I guess (this whole thing is suddenly terrifying), I'm going to try blogging every day for... let's say two weeks. That seems like a reasonable goal (or internet suicide, depending how you look at it).
In other news, today is November 1st! You know what that means?
I get to start playing Christmas music non-stop until, oh, around mid-January.
I know, I know, poor Derek, blah blah blah.
To kick off the season, I started with the musician whose Christmas album is, I'm convinced, the best ever produced, and whose voice never fails to make me think of winter.
That's right: we spent the morning listening to Neil Diamond.
TOTALLY KIDDING. It was Nat King Cole.
Please don't ever try to argue with me on the whole Nat-King-Cole-has-the-greatest-Christmas-album-of-all-time. Unless you want to see a gross overreaction on my part and the possible destruction of our relationship. Then, sure, go ahead.
See? The next two weeks are going to be fun!
