Several friends have remarked how well I seem to manage all of my competing responsibiliies, which seems to speak to the value of those smoke and mirrors I bought on sale that time.
Despite my time pressures, I've missed having a creative outlet besides the napkin or kiddie menu drawings I do for Ava when we go out to eat. I like to help her practice letters by writing short words with matching illustrations and having her pick out letters she knows. She knows "A" well because of her name, so a fan favorite is the string BAT CAT FAT HAT MAT SAT VAT. Vat is a tough one to explain to a three year old though. Nothing modern really comes in vats. Pickles? I digress, mightily.
So to get back on the ball with writing regularly in more than just a Tweet-length message, I'm taking part in National Blog Posting Month or NoBloPoMo in which the goal is to post something every day for the month of November. So far, the month has presented sufficient blog fodder.
