The last day of Diabetes Awareness Month. The last day of NaBloPoMo. The last day of November. But thatâ€™s ok. Because it doesnâ€™t mean itâ€™s the last day to SAE It Loud! for diabetes awareness. Itâ€™s not the last day to blog. Itâ€™s not the last day to mark off on your calendar.
I am sad to see it over though. Iâ€™ll miss my reasons to wear blue and have little blue circles painted everywhere on my calendar. Iâ€™ll miss the little things pop up and surprise me that let me know that people outside of the DOC know that itâ€™s DAM and WDD and the like.
I wonâ€™t, however, miss the invisible reminders that pop in my head at 11 oâ€™clock pm that remind me that I didnâ€™t post today and that I have to so that Iâ€™ll still be â€œinâ€ for NaBloPoMo. I have to say that this was a challenge I was not fully prepared for. I started off very well, but keeping with it is a challenge, especially over the weekends, and definitely while you are in the middle of moving your blog home from one place to another where it doesnâ€™t require two hours of work and a push of a button to complete. Itâ€™s very easy to miss posting.
Iâ€™ll miss everyoneâ€™s awareness posts and ideas of how to get the general public involved. (Though I donâ€™t miss in the least the regular posts you guys have!). But never to fear, I have a freakin backlog of over 300 posts to read in my Google reader now, which Iâ€™m excited to see that the iPad keeps up with and shows a number badge to alert me of the posts I have to read.
I am, in one and only one way, glad to see it go though. Thatâ€™s because it means weâ€™ll officially be in December tomorrow. Weâ€™ll officially be able to start the â€œ25 days til Christmasâ€ countdown! Yippeee!!! 25 days til Santa comes and my hubs will get to see what I got him, and Iâ€™ll get to play with my iPad (again). Iâ€™m just as excited about him opening his gift from me as I am getting my gift from him!
So, November-NaBloPoMo-DAM, I bid you goodbye. I loved having you here this year more than any year before.
