It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

N is for National Holidays
I'm in the U.S. so those are the holidays I'm mentioning. The thing is, I'm not going to talk about the usual holidays, I want to be a little different.

According to Holiday Insights, today is National Librarian Day. They weren't able to find out anything about the day and there were no congressional records or presidential proclamations stating April 16 to be National Librarian Day.

Here's a fun one, and after the stress of getting our taxes mailed in (US), we could all use a little fun. National Wear Your Pajamas to Work Day, the website has lots of great pictures including an officer on horseback and a reporter.

National Day Calendar wants to give us reason to #CelebrateEveryDay

There is a list of about 5 things for every day in April plus the month long celebrations. National Soft Pretzel Month was mentioned and I found an article at examiner.com that includes a recipe. Yummy!

National Donate Life is also mentioned and it is official. NDL is all about organ donating, click here for more information.

edit: April is also National Autism Awareness Month but I didn't know what to say about it. I found this video on Facebook and it makes so much sense. I even wrinkled my nose and turned my head away at the makeup counter! Visit Autism Speaks

And don't forget Emancipation day which is why income taxes weren't due until the 18th. :)

I always think that those random daily holidays are the best. I like the idea of wearing pajamas to work!
