Enduring and Thankful

 Today's NaBloPoMo prompt is:
Where do you see your blog in one year? Five years?

Hopefully in one year my blog will be back to it's full glory.  Five years from now I would just like to still be enduring.  Blogging is so much fun.  I love to "hang out" with my bloggy friends.  Blogging has really given me a lot of opportunities that I wouldn't have otherwise had.  So, I hope that I can hang in there for the long run.  Of course my blog will change every day.  As my kids get older I will be dealing with much different issues than I dealt with when they were in preschool and early elementary school.  Crafts will be different.  Recipes will be different.  Social issues will be different.  I will hopefully be on a different spiritual journey.  I believe in constantly trying to improve.  I know a lot of people say that you should be happy with who you are and how things are.
And I am truly happy.  So, the changes that I make won't be because I don't like the way things are now.  I just believe that growth is always possible.  Always.

I am very thankful for everything that I have now.  I hope that I will be thankful in five years as well.

When I began my blog I always did a Thankful Thursday post on Thursdays.  Every Thursday. Not just Thanksgiving.  So, I really would like to get back to that.  There is not a better Thursday to get back to that than on Thanksgiving.  So, here are the five things that I'm thankful for this week.

  1. I'm thankful that my parents made it up here safely last week and that we had a good time.
  2. I'm thankful that I completed my first half marathon.  
  3. I'm thankful that the kids get to have a long weekend.
  4. I'm thankful that we get to spend the day with my hubby's family.
  5. I'm thankful for a kitty who will occasionally crawl into my lap.
 What are you thankful for this week?

Enjoy your holiday!

Oh My Gosh, I'm Such a Dork!

 Today's NaBloPoMo prompt is:
"Take a post or scene you've written and find a new way in by rewriting with another angle."

I swear I did this one two weeks ago.  I don't know how I could have messed up this NaBloPoMo thing so much!  Oh. My. Gosh.  
I'm such a dork!  
I have really fallen short this month in the NaBloPoMo stuff.  I truthfully think I've been so bad because I just began blogging again after a break.  Some of the questions this month are just not where I'm at right now.   Know what I mean?  But next month's prompts are based on

I'm going to try next month on one of my other blogs.  I will try to finish this month here this week.  I still don't know how I looked at the prompts two weeks ago and used the prompt from today.  I must have been wishing November away!  I mean, did I really think it was already November 26th two whole weeks ago?  And it wasn't even exactly two weeks ago.  I have no idea what in the world has been going on with my looking up these prompts! 

I'm a half marathon walking, Meals on Wheels driving, volunteer Math Superstars grading, boo-boo kissing, meal-making, football party hosting mess this month! 

Here are the majority of the prompts I missed:
Wednesday, November 19
Are you the funny one in most groups? What kinds of things do you find funniest?
Thursday, November 20
Do you have a book in you? Fact or fiction? Related to your blog or totally different?
Friday, November 21
What is the one appliance you can't live without?
Monday, November 24
What's your favorite headline/blog post title you've ever written? What was the hardest post to title?

So here are the shortest possible answers I can give, in order.
Maybe. Silly stories.
No, not right now. Fiction if I did.  Or maybe fact.  Totally different.
I can't live without my crockpot, because really. . . . .saying my fridge would be too obvious.
My favorite post title is "Oh My Gosh, I'm Such a Dork!" Every post is hard to title.  Sometimes I have to write the whole post before I can come up with a title.  

I'm sure I've missed some others also.  Hopefully I'll be able to keep up next month. . . . . in December. . . . . . with the holidays! 

Are you good at keeping up with Daily Writing Prompts?
