Dear Kid,

Happy November!

I hope you remembered to reset your clock—that is if you have to be somewhere. I prefer to save my hour until later in the day. I generally use my extra hour in the afternoon. I love having that surprise extra time to use exactly as I please. Perhaps a nap. Perhaps a trip to the gym. Perhaps a nap at the gym. Whatever; it’s my extra hour.

November is full of crazy holidays. I envy the person who got to invent these. It seems like a job almost as good as the job inventing colors of nail polish.

November holidays include National Model Railroad Month, National Peanut Butter Lovers Month, and International Drum Month.

There are LOTS of ways to celebrate National Peanut Butter Lovers Month. Seriously, who thinks of these?

Tomorrow (November 2) is a perfect example of the craziness. It’s Deviled Egg Day, Look for Circles Day, and Plan Your Epitaph Day.

I don’t plan to celebrate any of them.

Well, maybe Look for Circles Day. I think that might be fun.

If nothing else, it might be a good excuse to wander outside for a few minutes.

On the other hand, I think National Peanut Butter Lovers Month seems like a worthwhile celebration. Although it might re-spark the Chunky versus Smooth Controversy.

Where do you stand on the Great Peanut Butter Debate?

Love, Mom
