I took a look back at some older postings and was startled to realize I've been blogging nearly a year. I'm quite amazed by that. And quite proud. I'm also surprised at how cathartic it has been to be able to put some of my experiences (the good and the hard) into words. In an effort to stretch my writing muscle, I've decided to sign up for NaBloPoMo, National Blog Posting Month. Basically, I've pledged to post every day for the month of November. I can't guarantee every post will be interesting. In fact, I suspect some of them will be quite mundane.

If I combine NaBloPoMo with a month of Thankful posts on Facebook, I guess I have my social media commitment full for the month of November. This actually gives me a good excuse to continue ignoring all the dating websites I've been avoiding.

On another note, I did switch rental cars today, and have a Kia Soul to try out for the next week.
I'm seriously thinking about a Soul to replace the Sportage, so this will be a nice, long test drive.

Breast bone pain is still pretty significant. I'm trying to be patient with healing, but it's hard. Since I'm going to be blogging every dang day, I'll save the details for another blog entry :-)


  1. I test drove a Soul last summer and really liked it. I found it to be quite comfortable, easy to get in & out of, and a smooth ride. I hope you enjoy the rental.

  2. I'm driving a cheap model, which has smaller tires - and I'm finding that makes the drive less smooth. I'm hoping to test drive a more "up scale" Soul model this week. I do think the seats are super comfy!
