What The Hell Is Connectober

If you were on twitter for say an hour and a half at lunch time yesterday you may remember me crying about folding laundry.

This doesn’t even scratch the service in showing you how much laundry I had to put away.  I’m pretty sure that I haven’t put laundry away since July.  August was too busy, and September was too lazy.  My motto is:  take from the clean basket and throw on the floor when you’re done.  That way nothing is messed up and you only have to pick up what’s on the floor to do laundry.  I’ve shocked you haven’t I?  Yup I’m really messy at my house.  Who knew?  (Okay well Brad knew, and every roommate I had for four years before I moved in with him knew.)

On to more important things like making my first ever home made burger.  I know another shocker.  How on EARTH have I not made my own burger before?  I went to the first one I could find which was Angela’s In a Jiffy Curry Chickpea Burgers.  The only problem is that I seriously STINK at following directions.

See those pumpkin and sunflower seeds?  They’re not supposed to be in there.  You’re supposed to add them afterwards.  Also, I neglected to read that you should cook them for 20-25 minutes per side, not total.  So dinner was 20-25 minutes late.

Either way, they were still delicious.

Alright alright alright, now to the title of this post – What The Hell Is Connectober?  Well hopefully you’ve already figured out that I’ve joined the words connect and October, yes?  Okay good.

Connect

  • to have or establish rapport
  • to place or establish in relationship

Connectober will be about staying connected with PEOPLE.  Sometimes we get far too busy in life and forget that it’s the relationships that nurture our soul.  It’s the relationships that nurture our business.  For one month I’m going write posts and participate in activities that fall under these categories:

  • connect with friends
  • connect with family
  • connect for community and support
  • connect for business

I am making a pledge this month to make sure that I nurture all the relationships I currently have and find new ones.  I pledge to seek out face to face encounters and share them with you.  I pledge to discuss how relationships contribute to your over all health and well being.

Will you pledge to make time for relationships this month?
