Ahh, sweet November. That magical month when all things become possible. Like the myth of Christmas and having money to fund it with 5 children. Like the perfectly browned turkey and not catching the house on fire ala broiled candied yams. Like creating little Thanksgiving doodads with the kids hand prints and grateful notes made into paper chains. Like Martha Stewart Holidays.
All things are possible in November.
...even posting a blog everyday for the month.
...even though I never complete the full 30 days.
...and yet, each year I attempt it.

I can't say as much for the turkey though. I know my limits.
NaBloPoMo (even after years of participating in this I still have to say it out loud to remember the acronym) or NationalBlogPostMonth, is not to be confused with NaNoWriMo.

See how easy that was? Now I'm going to get really crazy and try to add a self portrait each day too. Here's Day One. I call this one "Dorkalicious."
