Happy Veteran's day everyone!! I just wanted to take some time out of celebrating my birthday (yup! you read that right! I'm now officially 34 years old!) to say THANK YOU to all our armed forces veterans that have served or are serving to keep us all free! Without your bravery & sacrifices, we wouldn't be where we are today! Thank you & God Bless!!!

I hope you all are doing well on this lovely Fall November day! :) My day's going pretty well, even though my dog decided I needed a dang workout & I had to chase him the equivalent of about 5 blocks before I was able to catch up to him. Yeah, he made a break for it (leash included) & all I have to say is OUCH!! My poor lungs were burning by the time I grabbed that leash & brought him back to the apartment. He's now chilling in the kennel & will probably be in there for another hour or so. He is just SO lucky he wasn't hit by a car on his little run! Scared the freaking crap out of me when he crossed the street from my apartment complex (luckily it wasn't the REALLY busy street)! Ugh, I love him, but sometimes!!!! GAH!
Anyway, it is November...which means it's my birthday month. As a matter of fact, we are exactly ONE week away from my 34th birthday! Not that I have too much planned for that day. I'll probably spend it watching my shows on Netflix, as my hubby has to work & with it being at the beginning of the week, all my other friends are either working or in class. Oh well! Sometimes, spending your special day alone can be a good thing...right? :) Not only is it my birthday month, but my sisters' as well! Her birthday is actually 5 days after mine, but she's 4 years older than me, & lives in Florida, so sadly I won't be able to spend it with her, but I'll definitely be thinking about her! :) I also have quite a few other friends that have birthdays or anniversarys this month, so yes, November is quite busy for me. Not only that, but it's Thanksgiving month too! :) I actually have to work on Thanksgiving, but that's okay. I don't mind! I'm just so dang excited because the holidays are really upon us now...matter of fact, just the other day, I *almost* pulled out my Christmas cd's to listen to! I know, I know...it's a bit early for that, but I'm sure in the next couple of weeks I'll probably be pulling them out! It is also NaNoWriMo month too! What is that, you may ask? It stands for: National Novel Writing Month. It is supposed to help you write a novel in a month (or at least get started on one) by giving you daily goals of how many words you should have written, as well as support from other writers. I haven't joined in, but I am working on writing a book...three of them actually. I just have so many ideas in my head, that when a story comes to me, I start to write it, even if I'm not finished with my other one(s) first! I always know I can go back to my others when I get a chance. I just feel like if I don't get the ideas/story out of my head right away, I'll lose it & you never know, that idea could be novel idea! ;) Haha! Get what I did there? Okay, yes, it was cheesy, but at least it made me chuckle! Hopefully one of these days I'll actually get one of those stories finished & can have one of my friends (who is a published author) look over it & edit it & help me make it good enough to actually send it to an editor/publisher. Guess I'll find out one day! LOL! :)
Anyhow, I hope everyone is having a good start to their November so far & I hope that it continues to treat you well! Now, I'm off to relax on our new couch & watch some "Supernatural" on Netflix! Until next time, take care & stay safe!
