I was informed yesterday that it is National Blog Awareness month (or something of that nature), and everywhere bloggers are going to try to post a blog entry a day through the month of November. And while I support this idea and encourage some of you who haven't updated your blogs since May (you know who you are!) to participate, I think I am going to opt out of this one. I plan on blogging my usual 2-3 times per week, don't get me wrong.
Since I am doing okay in the blog writing department, I thought it might be nice to work on something else during the month of November, something that is more important to me. So I have zoned in on two choices. I am either going to a) keep my house clean enough so that if anyone drops by unawares I can excitedly throw the door open and invite them in. Normally my visitors are greeted with my door creaking open a crack and me asking for a password, then me asking if they can wait five minutes while I clear a path. Okay, maybe it isn't like that all the time. I was inspired by my mother-in-laws visit here last week. She was always looking for what needed to be done and just doing it, not waiting or complaining. So, I have a goal to be more like that and a clean house is bound to be the result.
My second goal was going to be to exercise every day in November, but then I remembered in the recesses of my brain something about needing rest days and not trying to do so much at the beginning that you get discouraged and quit. So I think I may modify this to say that I will at least do some sort of physical activity a day; be it a walk or mopping the floor with vigour. I will also try to do a true blue workout three times a week.
So I am off to a good start, today is November first and so far I am doing good on both of my goals (I know it is only 10:37 in the morning), and actually I am blogging, so maybe I can even participate in Blog Awareness Month. We shall see.
So, feel free to drop by any time in the month of November to check on my progress! If I ask you for a password you will know I have failed ;).
