I just realized November is almost over. Not this Monday, but the next is the last day of my self blogging challenge. I don't believe I've missed a day so far. Even when I didn't have much to say, I managed to say something. One of the best things that's happened through this is that I'm coming out of my comfort zone a little more. I talk to people more, I don't make up excuses constantly on why I just can't go somewhere when I'm asked. Even if I don't stay very long, I still go. And my friends GET it. They don't take it personally if I leave early because they know that it's not anything against them at all. Years and years ago, when I was on other blogging sites [or journaling, as we called it then, since "blog" was still an odd word], we used to say that writing was the best therapy. The simple act of getting it out there was so helpful. And yes, sometimes you get bad comments for something that you feel, but that pretty much helps you grow too. [Or you can sink into a funk for a couple of days like I did, dust yourself off, and get over it. Either way works.] But really, the best thing to come out of this is that I've gained some new friends, and reconnected with some old ones. It's very wonderful. :)
I won't be sorry to see November gone. And it'll kind of be nice to not have to force myself to write everyday. But truthfully? I'll miss doing it each and every day. Although, with the 365 Day picture thing, I'll still be posting something, but you know, it's not the same.
So more work was done to my new place today. I am so so happy with the outside! The biggest problem is that I don't have a wall to sit on anymore, though. LOL! I need to dig through all my furniture and see what I have as far as couches and chairs go. Adorable Wilma came over and she made Christmas explode on my front lawn, so now I have even more decorations! However, I need a really pretty indoor Christmas tree. Does anyone know where I can find one? I would kind of prefer a sculpted one or a well made prim one. But mostly I want it pretty.
I also spent some time fixing up the little holiday area. Please feel free to come by Bluebonnet and skate on the pond or sit on Santa's lap. He's in the gingerbread house. I even have a little train you can ride around a tree, but it's not very pretty, so I'm going to get another one I saw somewhere...if I can remember where I saw it.
And hey, you can even skate with a snowman. :)
Ali's Thanks of the Day: Good or bad, I'm thankful for this blog. It's helped me through a LOT of stuff.
