So it has been 8 days since I last posted…
I guess that means I sort of failed at NaBloPoMo this month. Again! I find that November is one of the hardest months because of the Thanksgiving Holiday. I don’t know how others do it. I just know that I tend to get caught up in everything and when I finally do have time to sit and write, I’m usually too tired to do so.
I already know that December will not be any easier with the Christmas and New Year’s holidays—but I signed up for NaBloPoMo in December just for kicks and giggles! You never know if my persistence will pay off? *snorts* Yeah okay—I see how much faith you have in me. LOL. It’s okay.
Now this might shock some of you. I have written approximately 31,000 of a possible novel?? YAY—right?? I should have signed up for NaNoWriMo. Oh well. I didn’t even realize how much I had written until someone had posted how much they’ve written and I thought, WAIT A SECOND, I’ve been dabbling with this silly story line for about three weeks, let’s see how many words I’VE written. Yes 30,988. I am praying work picks up soon. There is no way in God’s creation I should have that much time on my hands while I work!!
Anyway, here’s a run down of the last week:
Tuesday was uneventful. As far as I can remember.
Wednesday we said goodbye to Jake, our foster dog. His forever Mommy drove all the way from Pennsylvania to come pick him up. She got acquainted with him and we took him for a walk. And when she signed all the paperwork and took his leash, we said goodbye. No tears. As she walked him to the car he never even looked back. He just looked at her the whole way, so excited for new stimulation and a new environment. It was a good match—and I know this lady will take excellent care of him and love him. So while we were sad for all of a few seconds, we knew this was a very good thing. It felt good too. Now I am open to fostering another dog in need!!
Thursday was our Thanksgiving. We had London Broil. It was awesome. Kids were a little upset at the no Turkey and no Ham thing until they ate some of that London Broil. Then they were like, why don’t we do this more often?? LOL. Kids. Crack. Me. Up.
Friday—stayed home and saved a ton of money. No black Friday shopping for me.
Saturday—we had Turkey and Ham!! We celebrated Christmas with my Mom, my brother and his family, my cousins and my Aunt. We watched the OSU-Michigan game. How about them Buckeyes!! Topped the day off by going to see Skyfall in the theaters. Made for a great weekend.
Monday—back to my good ole routine.
Well, if you’re not yawning—then you’re a saint or really bored or something. LOL
Oh I have so much reading to catch up on!! If I haven’t been by your blog in awhile—I will be coming by sometime this week!! AND I have to look at a blog award I received!! I need to address that soon!!
