Knowing this would be our first Thanksgiving away from family, I was a little sad when it rolled around. But overall, it turned out very nice :) We have so much to be thankful for this year and whatever difficulties have come our way, they do not detract from how blessed we truly are!
This is the only double-figure palindromic date, since there is not 22nd month and so on. What a cool way to honor the bravery of our veterans (love you, Grandpa!)!
Interesting fact: the last time this date occurred (on Nov. 11, 1911), a weird natural event took place. Temperatures dropped by more than 60F in a single day! This was the Great Blue Norther, a cold wave that hit the U.S. causing blizzards, tornadoes, and record falls in temperature. For ex, Kansas City was 76F in the afternoon, but dropped to 11F by the end of the day. This is the only day in many cities' histories where the record highs and lows were broken on the same day! Preeetty crazy...
So what was the weather like here in LA? And what did we do?
Why oh why am I still up? Well, mostly because I like nights more than mornings, and this new time change is killin' me. I am not a farmer, so I don't care that it is bright outside at 6AM. In fact, I prefer it not wake me up :)
ANYways, James has been busy with studio...is that surprising? ;) He just had his mid-term review, and has 3 weeks to finish his project before the end of the quarter, taking into account the critique he received at his review. Crunch time!
And me? Well, I am about to start my second job next Tuesday. While I am looking forward to it, I'm not super excited about traveling between the two jobs...or more work. But it will keep me active and learning, so I am trying to head into it with a smile :) I'm beginning to realize how much my patients need someone who cares about them, and that is what makes me walk into the office each day, ready to kick some disease-butt!
See, this is why we haven't been updating the blog much - there just isn't a whole lot of new things going on. I will have to come up with more creative things to post/talk about ;)
Until then, God bless! And please continue to pray for us!
