Long Day

Normally when I do NaBloPoMo, I write several posts ahead of time so that I don't have to worry about blogging in the midst of Thanksgiving celebrations. This year I wasn't quite so on the ball. And reality is, today has been a long day, and I don't have it in me to crank out a post tonight. In fact, if I am going to stay up any later, it would be much more beneficial to use the time processing my thoughts in my private journal, rather than crafting a public post for you all. So...happy Thanksgiving, and I'll see you tomorrow with a big ol' gratitude list.

Oh, P.S., a funny from today. I actually used the phrase "might could" today--meaning, I believe that I am officially a southerner. I never, ever thought I would see the day that those words would come out of my mouth, but they did. As in, "We might could put these over here." Yeah. What?!

Ok, so I use that fairly often. I had no idea it's southern thing until I read this. I lived in TN two different times in my life and my whole family from my grandparents on back (on both sides) are from the south. So maybe I picked it up from them? Anyway, this post made me laugh because I'm now conscious of when I say it because Josh makes fun of me: "You're an English major and you say 'might could'?" :)

You've been in the south long enough; it's about time you started stringing multiple verbs together. I'd say more, but I need to run go get my kids out of bed.
