Maybe it's No-BloPoMo

What's NaBloPoMo called when it's every other day? What ever it is, I think that's what I'm doing. It's actually kind of funny, in my "dash board" there's a draft post and a published post every other day - so it's not for lack of wanting to do it! I had yesterday's post mostly done, then ran off to dinner and forgot to finish it when I got back.

So I guess the question is, am I doing NaBloPoMo or what? Let's go with "what" - I still love the theme of Change, so I really do want to write about that, but let's face it I may not be ready to do an everyday sort of thing! And feel free to give me crap, it's not like it's soooo hard to write a bit every day, even if the carpet is soaking wet and your husband is being an ass about it.

Anyhoo, enough of that nonsense I have something far more important to tell you! I finally got my t-shrit! As you can see, I got it for Christmas, and (as you can also see) I was pretty stoked! My aunt and uncle were completely confused, but you know, they're old and they live out in the burbs - so they don't get it :-)

The rest of Christmas was ok - it was strange (of course), and hard, there were a couple of mini-break downs but really ok. See that little stocking up there behind me? That's where my Dad's stocking used to be - that was a hard thing. But, as with the trip out in September, we tried hard to do lots of family things and create new traditions. It made things easier to start over with certain things then to try and pretend that the old way was still ok.

I'd better get off to bed, I'm so not looking forward to going back to work tomorrow - a week off of work followed by two four day weekends really isn't a good way to get ready to go back to a regular work week. And promise to think about my post for tomorrow (ok, Tuesday-ish).

I thought about you a LOT this Christmas when I get oh, so, aggravated at the people who are biologically responsible for producing me.

I am sorry your carpet is wet, and that your husband is annoyed. And, BLECH work tomorrow. Me too.

Oh, I was thinking that I needed to be grateful...forgot that part.

I bet your Dad was looking down on all of you and was wanting all of you to be hella happy on Christmas day, and your smile in that photo would have been a gift!

Good luck returning to work tomorrow!

I'm totally shallow today. No insight. But that T-shirt rocks. Seriously.

I love the shirt! I always could tell when someone was from the area when I lived in SF because they said "hella." I'm sorry about your basement! I hope you get the carpet replaced soon.
