I’m not going to lie to you.
October was not my favorite month.
First, I was sick.
Being sick meant I had to postpone my surgery.
I’m pretty sure I got sick in the first place because I was so anxious about the surgery, so I guess I had it coming.
Then, I actually got surgery.
It went pretty well, but I think we can all agree that I found it, at times, both painful …
Granted, I kept powering through (and still am!), but recovering from an injury is nothing I’d consider in any way easy.
And don’t think it escaped me that I’m just about a year out from when all of this business started (I’m pretty sure I can now pinpoint that day — in November, though — as the day I tore my meniscus).
And then, when you take into account that I took a few emotional hits on the personal end of things (no need to get into that business on here), I think you can understand that I just kind of feel that October… well, October just kind of sucked the big one.
Sorry, Grandma. Language, language.
That’s why the title of this post is called HAPPY November! Because I need November to be happy — and I will make SURE that is is!
It shouldn’t be hard. I love November.
It’s the month before December, which is my favorite month of the year. That makes November my second-favorite month of the year.
It’s the month of the beginning of Christmas season, which means Christmas music (happiness!).
And, being the month before December, November is OBVIOUSLY the month of Christmas decorating (double happiness!).
…Probably in like a week, if I’m being honest.
It’s also the month of Thanksgiving!
Thanksgiving is going to be SUPER fun this year because Mark and I are hosting something called an Orphan Thanksgiving (similar to the one we attended elsewhere last year).
Finally, and perhaps most importantly for me, it’s going to be a big month of healing. I’m supposed to fully healed by mid-December, which means I’m planning on making some great strides this month.
And THAT means it’s going to be a HAPPY November.
What are you most looking forward to this month?
