Game On

3 Comments »   Posted by migratorymama |  Category:NaBloPoMo

Today is the first day of a new month and a new challenge. I have challenged my mother to post a new blog entry every day during the month of November as part of NaBloPoMo, National Blog Posting Month. I debated making this challenge because I knew my ultra-competitive mother would surely accept. With three small children, the youngest of which still wakes up in the middle of the night, I often lack both the time and brainpower required to function normally, much less write, every day. After making this challenge, I experienced a moment of panic. How will I come up with something to write about every single day this month??? There are no rules regarding subject matter or length of posts, but I often work best within structure. I perused a few lists of daily subject prompts, but none of these peaked my interest. I finally found my inspiration while reading Facebook posts. One of my friends is posting each day during the month of November about something for which she is thankful. I am thankful for so much, mostly the people in my life. I am looking forward to writing about just a handful of these blessings. Today’s post is short (and uninspired), but it is my way of announcing, “Game on, Mom!”
