Henry started daycare, but we call it "school" for him. I needed my sanity back. Plus, if I am to start school in January he needs to get used to going to daycare. That way he doesn’t freak out when everything happens at once. He went once just before Thanksgiving and brought home the cold and the flu in one fell swoop. He passed them both around the house. It meant Thanksgiving was miserable, and Granny and Gwen ended up doing most of the work. I also ended up in the ER because of it.
However, he went back to daycare after Thanksgiving and seemed to love it. He waves goodbye to us. He doesn’t appear to care when we leave. It’s wonderful. I get some time to clean and write; he gets more stimulation and socialization. It’s a win-win for everyone.

Thanksgiving happened, of course, and as I stated before Gwen came up. She brought cleaning supplies with her because she was determined not to get sick. She’s got too active a life to get sick. We also had the cousins over. They seemed to come over in shifts. Everyone had something else going, either other dinners or more work to do that day. We did miss one face at the dinner table, but I’m hoping that she makes it for Christmas.

Throughout November I kept my blog updated. I posted several responses to an article that got me fired up. I started with an essay titled “Why is it All Wrong?” and went from there. Other events occurred. These included Henry’s birthday and Well Baby appointment, the election, and Veteran’s Day. I posted two sonnets. Together celebrates my anniversary and there is also a Thanksgiving sonnet. I also posted a fictional piece about Veteran's Day.
In December I already have several blogs ready to go. There is one sonnet and some essays. One of the essays deals with my view of parenting. Another couple deal with politics and society. I hope to blog about Christmas and preparing to return to school as well.
Is there anything that you would like to see on my blog?
