I have to admit that this month’s "DAM –n- NaBloPoMo" has been a challenge for me. From the standpoint of finding something about diabetes to write about each day…well, that’s not that hard when you think about it as much as I do, just as every caretaker of a “special needs” child thinks about “it” for a good chunk of the day. Most of the time D hovers in the background of my consciousness until an alarm (either my watch, or my phone, or my Mommy alarm) goes off and something needs to be tended to.
But, making myself think about it when I don’t “need” to think about it…that’s been a little more challenging. This month, D has helped itself to the forefront of my consciousness more often throughout the day than I care for. “What, oh, what shall I write about today? Oh, yeah, D! Of course!” And, honestly, it can be a little depressing. So, I’ve missed a couple of days already, and I’ve back-dated a couple of posts trying to keep up. But, I figure that happens to newbies their first time around. Right?
But, what I really can’t keep up with is EVERYONE ELSE’S BLOGS! There are so many fabulous folks out there participating in NaBloPoMo, whether DAM-related or not, that I love to read, who don’t usually post EVERY day, and now they are. And, I just don’t have the time read them all! Darn!
But, (and, yes, I am aware that I’m not supposed to start three paragraphs in a row with “but”, but I’m doing it anyway), we’ve got a long holiday weekend coming up. Hubby does all of the Thanksgiving cooking (aren’t you jealous?), and we’ve got a relatively small crowd coming for dinner. So maybe, just maybe, after cleaning the entire house top-to-bottom (with the help of my lovely friend, S), I can take a day and catch up with all of my lovely blog friends (including S who has two blogs!). I promise to leave comments!
And, while I’m on the topic of posting every day, I have to just say I am completely in awe of my friend, Grace, who took on the challenge of writing and posting one Haiku every day for the entire year of 2010 on her blog, My Year In Haiku. I don’t think she has missed a single day, and every day is a treasure of words and fabulous photos. You really have to check her out. And, leave a comment!
And, (there I go again), I will do my very best to catch up with EVERYONE in My Blog World this week! It's been lonely without you all!
