Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

Mar 29 update: MIL is home but not doing well.

Apr 9 update: SIL is nurse and has taken time off work to care for MIL who is basically receiving hospice care at home.

I'll see you in May . . . April 23 update: My Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, died yesterday.

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 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!
