Month in Review: November 2015
Thankful for: Plans
November has been a busy month- a good one, in which I'm feeling excited and (mostly) prepared for the coming days ahead, but a busy one indeed! I went to the National Association of the Gifted Child's annual convention in Phoenix (Psst!- If you want to see what I packed, you can!). Preparing my classes for a substitute, plus getting back to them after having had a substitute (even though she was a very good one!) kept me too busy for any outfit this month. However, I did get a few things from this month's Why Don't You.... list accomplished- and one that wasn't! We hosted Thanksgiving dinner this year. And by "we," I mean The Boy cooked. But I did clean house a little, so that still counts as helping, right?
In addition to Thanksgiving, November actually celebrated a few other things close to my heart. It was National Diabetes Awareness Month; you can read about my thoughts on having Type I Diabetes on the blog. This month has also been a celebration for the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll's classic Alice in Wonderland. In honor of that, you can read an excerpt for this month's Dog Eared Page. This month's stationery wishlist was also book-themed; this time exploring the world of Barrie's Peter Pan. Other mail related posts included my review of the service Stitch Fix provides. Lastly, this month also marks the first time The Boy has ever watched My Fair Lady, so you can guess what latest Film Flick review is all about!
