How in the hell is it already November 14th? Where did the first 13 days go? Is anyone else shocked that we’re almost halfway through November?

I keep writing “October” on anything that has a blank for the date. For some reason I just can’t get it through my head that we’re in the next to last month of the year. Before we know it, it will be 2017 and we’ll be racing towards 2018.

The worst part of this whole situation – i.e. November moving so quickly – is that The Kids have all of next week off of school. A full week of them wandering aimlessly through the house, all frickin’ day long! Sure, Thursday will be filled with Thanksgiving-related obligations, but the rest of the time will be occupied with bandwidth hogging games of Minecraft, Path of Exile, and who knows what else!!! I give it until Tuesday morning before they complain about being bored.

Let’s be honest and get to the real question at hand: when do we get a free week off for Thanksgiving?  C’mon President Obama, make the 1-week break for Thanksgiving a national holiday. You have nothing to lose now, make all American’s happy! Sadly, I know he won’t. Boooo!!!!! Those darn kids, they get all the cool stuff!
