my challenge

november is national novel writing month. knowing myself, i'm not gonna write a novel. so i got thinking about something i could challenge myself to do, that i might also enjoy. and it hit me: i enjoy writing this blog but i wish i were better at it. so i'm challenging myself to write one post a day in the month of november.
i think it's gonna work out well because nba basketball season started this week and that leaves me a time with nothing to do. let me explain. seth and i watch a lot of tv. i've always liked tv and it really is the ultimate brainless activity for me. i have a job that demands a lot of my brain power, so when i come home after a long day at work i just want to relax in front of the tv. which is usually fine ... except for basketball season. seth loves nba basketball in general and the celtics in particular. he must watch every celtics game on broadcasted on tv. in northern new england that means 3 to 4 games a week. when i start to whine about how much basketball he watches seth reminds me of the three years i forced him to live in new haven, connecticut where there exists a celtics vortex and they only show new york and new jersey games.
so anyway, i'm gonna have a lot of time on my hands this month, even if i do follow through and learn how to knit this winter.

um yeah, I hate basketball too. And are you really going to learn how to knit? I am toying with that idea myself... at least a hat or something.

i actually like basket ball. the guys are hot, the game moves quick. its just the shear number of games that drives me crazy.
i really think i'm gonna try to knit. a scarf seems like a reasonable goal.
