Can Not Waste Today

By now you've probably all seen my NaBloPoMo badge on my sidebar and have realized that I've officially lost my mind. Yes, I will be posting every day in November, and yes, I am very sorry for clogging up your readers. I will try to keep my posts shorter. Starting today.

The weather here is 72 degrees and sunny. Far warmer and lovelier than our usual 50 degree Wisconsin Novembers. It is just too gorgeous to sit inside on the computer so if I am MIA from your blogs today you know why. Hopefully, I can take the boys to The Bowl after their naps and then roll them down the hill until they cry into their milk again. Good times.

Hope you all remembered to vote! Unless you are voting for the other guy. HAHAHA!! Totally kidding.

(Thank you to all those who emailed me and let me know my comments weren't working. I think they are now. Thanks again!)

Dizzy children are so cute:) This weather is such a blessing. Why am I blogging???

Jeni said...

Hey, you can "clog" up my reader every single day -even blog several times in a day too -wouldn't make me feel the least bit bad either if you did that! So, give it your best shot and blog away!

There we go! I also tried to comment yesterday and couldn't. Glad you guys had a great Halloween, and isn't this weather great? Almost strange, though. I don't want another winter like we had last year...

I am right there with you on the NaBlogPoMo thing! We can support each other in our insanity! HA!

Hope it's been a great day!

CC said...

Tam said...

OK if you are doing the NaBloPoMo blogging I can at least try to do the favor of Nablopomo commenting but it might be very hard as I am getting ready to leave for Virginia but I will try as you blog to comment!!! Deal

Way to enjoy your day!

Robyn said...

I know the weather has been fantastic!!!! Too bad it is supposed to drop to the 40's this weekend.

Kelly said...

YaY! The comments are working again!

I LOL at getting the kids dizzy until they cried in their milk. Have fun with that!

We've had awesome weather in the 70's too. Mr Weatherman says tomorrow is the last day. :(

Cyndi said...

I love NoBloPoMo! I am not going to try it but I love reading everyones blogs. FUN! Good luck!

maggies mind said...

I'm doing BloMe, too, and I'm also going to aim for shorter posts. Maybe. :) I always look forward to seeing your posts pop up in my reader.

Tammy said...

Great weather...spend as much time loving it. Change in Wisconsin is on it's way...snow flakes this weekend.

historygirlie said...

I'm a bit jealous that people could be outside today and I was stuck inside teaching kids who wanted to be outside....way to use the great day to your advantage!

Brittany said...

Isn't the weather wonderful? It's in the 70s here, too! Perfect for voting and standing in that line!!! :)

Tonya said...

I love that statement about voting. I am so with you! Ha and I don't even know who you are voting for :)

Kelley said...

Indian summer is too good to waste. Especially since the weathermen are predicting it's over. :( Nice while it lasted, at least.

DysFUNctional Mom said...

I'm glad the comments are working again. I thought it was just my wonky computer.

Golightly said...

I'll support your craziness this month if you support me in mine! Stop by tomorrow because I'm posting those old Halloween costumes and one reminded me of yours!

Nap Warden said...

Yep, we had some crazy nice weather today as well! I took the kiddos to the park. They cried the entire time...what's up with that?

Good luck with the NaBloPoMo:)

Momisodes said...

Oh the weather here today was glorious too!

So glad you've joined in on the madness :)

Kelli @ Gohn Crazy said...

I hope you enjoyed your unseasonably warm temperatures today. :) It was nice here today too.

Siobhan said...

I want to do NaBloPoMo so bad again this year. It doesn't help that as soon as the 1st rolled around, I was out of state. Not fair! Then again, if I make the time, I will always have something to blog about being away from home. I'll probably be gone till 12th. Good luck!

I loved the "crying into their milk" story. Still makes me laugh.

Lindsay said...

Ah, yes. I've tried to leave comments but apparently you just had too many!!

here's to lovely fall days....down the toilet for us tomorrow. Ugh. Enjoy yours!

Laura said...

YOU CAN DO IT!!! I am also taking part - last November I only got to 24!!! We can do this...if need be, let's exchange post ideas!!!!

imbeingheldhostage said...

Hey, I was worried about clogging up reader too-- it almost made me NOT do Nablopomo. I'm personally very excited you'll be posting everyday. Love swinging by to check in!

Stephanie said...

I tried to comment on all your posts from yesterday and the weekend but nothing worked. Mine weren't working on my page either. Finally got it back up by changing the format as well.

I'd every intention of posting every day this year since I missed it last year. But that will just not work for me. I cannot do it. Good for you though!

wheelsonthebus said...

Wow. That's ambitious.

Krystyn said...

I tried to comment, too! And, I had to change mine back from the embedded comments...I think those were the ones that weren't working!

Anyhow, short and sweet...I love it!

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
