Yeah, totally missed Friday

But I have a perfectly valid excuse - I have a baby at my house!  My sister and her fiance and their 3-month-old baby girl arrived on Friday night, and it's been a whirlwind weekend.  Any time that I've managed to sit down for more than a few minutes at a time, I've had a baby in my arms.  Not that I'm complaining!  But it's not so easy to type...

Today we had our big Thanksgiving dinner: turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie and lemon meringue pie.  Followed by a hockey game.  Well, watching a hockey game, not playing one.  Tonight was the Jets' season opener, the first Jets game in 15 years, and it was against the Canadiens.  Back in the day, when the Jets were still in Winnipeg, I was a Jets girl, through and through.  These days, though, I'm a Habs fan, which made it interesting to watch tonight's game.  Either way, I was going to be happy, but I was also going to be disappointed.  I found an article online though, that really describes it well: Loren Roberts is another Jets-fan-turned-Habs-fan.

But now that the hockey adrenaline has worn off, and the turkey tryptophan is kicking in, I think I'm going to go pass out for a few hours.  And then I might get up for a midnight snack of lemon meringue pie.

Where is the time going??

I must be getting older.  There's  no other explanation for the way time just seems to be slipping away without me noticing.  For example, today is Monday.  October 3.  What happened to September?? Seriously, I have no idea where it went!  It's just gone... and I'll never get September 2011 back again.

Also, that means that November is just around the corner, which brings NaNoWriMo, and a whole different set of timewarps.  If you've done NaNo before, you know what I mean.  There's something about such intense creativity that just alters the entire time-space continuum.  Also, it makes me very sleepy once December arrives.

And then right after NaNo - er, November - comes December, which brings family time and Christmas shopping, and Christmas itself, and then this year also brings my sister's wedding.  It looks like my next chance for a decent night's sleep will be... um... January?  Except I know that I'll be doing theatre stuff in January, which pushes a good sleep back until February.

Is there anything important happening in February?  It's a short month; do you think anyone would mind if I took a 28-day nap?
