Kick start Monday - My month!

Stole this from Heather, who got it fom facebook which I am avoiding because it's infected and lost its appeal for me. But, I love the toon!


It's my month! I get to celebrate another year of life =) So...

Let's have a slumber party!
(virtual bloggy style)
Come back on or near my bday (11/20) and tell me your best Slumber Party Story - real or fictional and I'll tell you mine and we'll all have a good giggle!

November is the 2nd busiest month of the year. (October was 3rd) And I'll tell you why...
  • this month we are taking our vacation to Disney
  • then we are going to visit relatives for Thanksgiving - one thing I'm thankful for is other relatives willing to host and make the huge meal who are fabulous cooks and hosts.
  • there is also my bday (NOVEMBER 20 =)
  • and I still have to make my kids finish their gift lists (which should have been done last month) and start shopping myself (one gift bought so far)
  • December is #1 with the holidays and parties and basketball games and decorations and xmas cards and wrapping and on and on...
I'm getting a headache just thinking about it all!

I have to mention that I won a cute wristband from Susan Kaye Quinn to kickoff her book, OPEN MINDS. Here is Mary's post where I left my winning comment. Woot!

And here is my poem for PAD #7, What won't wait. (I dropped #6 at Poetic Asides and #5 below, got honorable mention in Janet Reid's contest, yay!)

No time to say Hello, Good-
 
Always in a hurry
Rush, rush, rush
Speed up gait
Let em wait
I know I’m late.
Hush!
 
Alarm set earlier
Then I hit the snooze
Almost break it
I can make it
Or I’ll fake it
Cruise!
 
Time doesn’t care
Leaves me in the dust
Maximize
Economize
Use it wise
Must!

I think this comic is just brillant! It's november and it's thanksgiving... although, I do get my christmas shopping done this month so I can relax next month.

LOL! Santa is kind of pushy, especially at Costco--he is everywhere.

Abby Fowers said...

I posted that pic on FB too! LOL. It cracked me up - I just had to share. So funny. And cool bracelet that you won. Way cute.

Ah, very TIMEly poems. ;)

When do you go on your trip? When, when, when? My past trips to Disney World have been in November, and after doing one in October...I much prefer November. Weather's more comfortable, and it doesn't seem as crowded. So HAVE FUN!

P.S. M.Pax's post at my place today was somewhat misleading - it was actually a different Nikki she knew back in NYC in the 80s. Sure would've been fun though. :)

Angela Brown said...
