Me So Tired!
Good Morning November. I see you didn't bring your lovely cool weather again. If you had a phone, I would text you a frowny face. :( It was hot last night. Icky sticky hot. Despite that, Halloween was another fabulous success. The crowds were smaller than anticipated, but we still managed to make at least a handful of kids cry. Not that we set out to make kids cry, but it is a little gratifying when they refuse to go into the "mad lab", or come out bawling. They get extra treats too. I feel bad and good at the same time. It's a paradox! But the best part of it all is hearing the kids and parents alike, tell us we are the best house in town, and how they love coming to see our set up every year. The true appreciation that people show is heart warming and extremely gratifying. It's what drives us every year to open our home to the public and share our love of Halloween. Of course, after all of the festivities of the month leading up to, and ending last night, I am wore out. I'm ready for a respite before my hubby's birthday and Thanksgiving. This will give me time to get the house in order, and ready for the next all consuming holiday month.
This is my first official National Blog Posting Month. Starting today, my challenge is to blog once a day, every day, for the next 30 days. The biggest feat I imagine will be finding time and subjects to babble on about. I have always said, this blog is for me first. It is my outlet and my soap box. I am coming up on my 2 year mark in January, and that to me is a feat in itself. This very post is my 99th! Tomorrow I will have to do something special for my 100th post. But the most amazing part is how impressed I was that I had had 2000 views in 1 year back in January. This was way more than I could imagine! But... so far this year, I have had 5601 views. My mind is BLOWN! Last month, I had 1,098 views alone. I am humbled, and a bit scared. I'm just writing about my every day life. I almost feel the need to amp it up! I should take this blog to a whole new level, and make it about extreme cooking or something equally as exciting and dramatic! But then I realize, I don't have time for that. I am busy living the normal crazy life I live. I am lucky to get a blog out every week! I have a day job! (I can't quit it!) This month is the exception. I have to blog every day, and I will run out of subjects. Thankfully I have prompts I can work with. I also won't be writing long posts either. Today, I start a challenge. I will make it to the end, even if I only submit one sentence a day!
