One Act: November

First off, today's post is going to be brief. Sorry, dudes.

John originally got word that he'd be working in Des Moines, but a whole 24 hours later took a job across the country. So not kidding! It's really exciting, and I look forward to telling you more about it next week.

So, I'm sure you can understand that things are busy right now.

I'm subbing this entire week, and had a bunch of items on my agenda this week: Dinner with friends and serving meals to kiddos last night, our weekly game of Name That Tune with friends tonight, City Council meeting {about backyard chickens!} tomorrow, and an Origami Owl party on Friday night.

This weekend I am going on a tour of a sustainable community space and faith center this weekend, and have a going-away party for John's nephew, who will begin his tour of duty in Afghanistan for the United States Navy.

This vibrant young man inspired this month's One Act.

For November, I took an hour of my time to write out 12 postcards with a holiday message for soldiers serving in the armed forces this holiday season. I have a drawer full to the brim with greeting cards and postcards for various occasions. What better way to weed out some of the fun and funky postcards than to send some holiday cheer to someone who will be overseas this time of year.

It was a simple task and it was sponsored by the American Red Cross, so I'm confident the postcards will find their way to the soldiers. If you are interested in sending a holiday card to a few soldiers, you have until December 6th. Don't delay - here's the address:

Holiday Mail for Heroes

P.O. Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456

Here are the guidelines and recommendations for your card. You might want to take a peek.
I feel really bad, though, because I didn't remember to take any photos of the cards to share with you here. My apologies!

There's only a few more weeks left in 2013. I can't even believe it. This year has passed so quickly, and my 2013 resolution has been the first New Year's Resolution I have ever kept for an entire year. I've already thought a bit about a resolution for 2014, but want to sit on it for a bit to see if it's a good fit for me.

After this post, I'll only be sharing one more One Act post, and it will be a fun one - stay tuned!
