The Skipped Month

2 Nov

Poor November. As I drove to work today, I saw Christmas decorations being put up by city workers downtown. Excuse me, but isn’t it a bit early for all that? If I were November, I’d be pretty ticked off.

It’s National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month, and especially since my grandmother suffers from this disease, I’m asking you to join the cause – so we can create a world without Alzheimer’s.

November is also the month of Thanksgiving, of course, so I’m writing down one thing I am thankful for every day. I know, right? How very Oprah Winfrey of me. I’ll post my list on Thanksgiving day. Not because I think you care, but because it will make me do it.

    November is also Movember (, to raise awareness of men's health issues.

    Carissa, you just MADE my day. I'm thankful for your blog, too. And for photos of your little one who, it seems, is happy at all times!
