So this month is National Blog Posting Month, in addition to being National Novel Writing Month. No, I'm not going to write the abbreviations. For some reason, they really bug me. I can't really explain why, but it's my blog and therefore I don't have to write them. :)

I'm getting a bit of a late start, but I think I'm going to try to participate in the Blog Posting -- write a blog post each day for the month of November. I've been neglecting this, my blog, a lot lately, posting once or twice in a given month most times. The most likely reason is Facebook -- the ease of typing up a short couple of sentences whenever the mood strikes me takes less time and effort than writing an actual blog post. Add onto that that almost no one reads on LJ any more, and motivation is low. But I don't keep a blog just for other people -- it's also a record for me of the goings-on in my life, so I shouldn't let a lack of readers stop me. :)

Today is the first day of "Daylight Wasting Time" (as a friend on Facebook amusingly put it) and I'm at work this afternoon. The time change means it will likely be dark when I leave here at 6:00 today -- not something I'm a huge fan of. I'd rather stick with "Daylight Savings Time" and have more sunlight in the evening. I'm not doing anything but shuttling kids to school in the morning -- I don't need super-early daylight for that! Losing the daylight early also seems to affect my motivation to get things done -- once it's dark, I have no desire to venture out of the house, and I have low energy for being productive at home, either. I sometimes wonder if I have a touch of SAD, though I'm sure it's not enough for an actual diagnosis.

Today's theme at work: PowerPoint assistance. They all need it. Ugh.

I will grant you, it's about the most awkward abbreviation I've ever seen. But yay for more postings! :D

Love the "Daylight Wasting Time" phrase.

Hooray! I'm still reading :-)

(I like the idea...maybe I'll try to post once every other day or something...)
