If you are visiting my blog for the first time, thank you for stopping by!
If you have been here before, thank you for returning!
I have been blogging here at Four of a Kind (formerly Three of a Kind Working on a Full House…) for 4 1/2 years now. My family and I dealt with secondary infertility and loss for over five years and being able to write and share about our journey here has been invaluable. To find out more about me, you can check out this page. You can find links to some of my favorite posts here.
This month I am doing NaBloPoMo for the first time and it has been an interesting experience. Today is Day 21 and I am proud of myself for having posted 21 days in a row so far. I am confident that I will be able to finish what I started and reach my goal of writing and sharing a blog entry here every day this month!
Every week here on my blog I host a blog hop/writing exercise called Time Warp Tuesdays. You can read more about it here. The idea is to revisit and share some of our favorite blog entries from our archives and reflect on our journeys since we wrote them. I would love for any and all of you to join me this week (starting tomorrow) or any week in “doing the Time Warp!” This week, in honor of the Thanksgiving holiday, we are reflecting on a post from our archives where we talked about something we were thankful for in our lives. You can find out more here about participating in Time Warp Tuesday this week.
I will leave you with three random things about myself and three questions for you. I would love for you to answer any and all of them in the comment section:
Thing 1: I recently started playing Words with Friends on my phone via the app and Facebook. It is the first Facebook game/app that I have ever really gotten into. I find it to be a lot of fun and appreciate how it challenges and stretches my mind to come up with words that work into this Scrabble-like game.
Question 1: Have you ever played Words with Friends? If so, what is your favorite thing about it?
Thing 2: Every year we put up our Christmas tree the weekend after Thanksgiving. This year is our first year living in our new home during this holiday season. Over the past few days I have been staring at my living room trying to decide where we should put our Christmas tree here.
Question 2: If you celebrate Christmas and/or decorate a Christmas tree in your home, how do you decide where to put it every year? Do you always put it in the same location or do you vary it from time to time?
Thing 3: Another thing I am really looking forward to this week, besides getting together and spending time with our family on Thanksgiving, is going shopping with my mom and sister on “Black Friday!” This is a family tradition that the women on my side of the family partake in most years the day after Thanksgiving.
Question 3: How do you feel about “Black Friday?” Do you like to go shopping and take advantage of some of the great deals available that day or do you avoid going anywhere near a store or shopping mall on the day after Thanksgiving?
