Hi all. First of all, from Diesel 10 and Wreck it Ralph, we want to wish you a Happy Halloween! 🙂

Little Tyke and Little J as Diesel 10 and Wreck it Ralph.

I also want to wish good luck to anyone participating like me in National Novel-Writing Month as of midnight tonight.

You can find more details about it at http://www.nanowrimo.org – lots of games, challenges, local meetups and write-ins, swag for your FB and Twitter etc. … you can participate as much or as little as you want, but ultimately at its core it’s the challenge of writing a 50,000 word novel in a month. It doesn’t have to be a work of high literature, or even that good – the point is to release your creativity, set down and WRITE. I have yet to ‘win’ – which everyone who reaches the 50k benchmark does – but it’s always a fun challenge for myself. And maybe this will be my year! 🙂 If you’re interested, it’s not too late – hustle on over and see if you can find me over there. I’d love to exchange moral support and war stories!

{November 2, 2012}   November

First of all, belatedly, I hope everyone had a safe and Happy Halloween yesterday! Our little vampire and little pumpkin sure did! 🙂

My Little Men

Now November is upon us and even though the weather is getting chilly, there are so many things happening. First of all, it’s National Novel Writing Month, which you can learn about over at http://www.nanowrimo.org – I am participating this year and seem to be off to a decent start for day one – 1691 words.

30 Days and Nights of Literary Abandon.

It is also Movember, when many men grow their mustaches out to their wives’ disgust … and yet we can’t complain, as it is for a tremendously good cause in raising awareness of men’s cancers. Check it out at http://ca.movember.com.

It is also National Adoption Month – which we always remember easily as it was also the month Little Tyke was born. 🙂 Do you want to know something else really special? We learned he’d been born on Miracle Children’s Day. True story. But this is a great time of year to celebrate that families are made in all different ways and it doesn’t matter if you share DNA, or look like each other, whether you got to know each other over 9 months of gestation, 9 days or 9 years after birth … to quote Mrs. Doubtfire, “But if there’s love, dear… those are the ties that bind, and you’ll have a family in your heart, forever.” Much love to my family, both by birth and by choice, and ALL families out there!

My amazing family.
