where wildly different is perfectly normal


Made it. Kinda sorta almost entirely barely. But look at that little calendar there! Full of oranged-out dates, full of posts. Good to see.

NaBloPoMo 2009 is done. And while I’ve mostly loved it, there were a few days where the last thing I wanted to do was post. Today was one of them, unfortunately, which is why this is going up so late and is so piss poor. I had every intention of doing a charming wrap-up of the month, and then, wouldn’t you know it?


Apparently when you go out of town for a week, even with a dying computer, things pile up and threaten to take over. Things like, oh, I don’t know…Christmas shopping, emails (so sorry if you’ve been waiting for a reply from me), paying bills. And let’s not forget the little matter of playing in a recital next week and not being AT ALL prepared. I’m afraid my neck may make that recital almost impossible. Still hurts to turn my head, so practicing flute doesn’t sound all that appealing. I’ll try again tomorrow and see what happens. I hate to bail, but I hate failing more.

But! NaBloPoMo 2009 is done. I enjoyed it, I’ll do it again. But now I need an ice pack and ibuprofin for this stiff neck from hell that a massage seems to have only angered.


  1. YAY!!! You did it! And you survived it! And all the drama what with the computer and the traveling…and I can’t believe you have a RECITAL?1??!?! Girlfriend, where on earth do you find the time for all this?

  2. Hey there. I came over from Twitter (I put up the Nanaimo bar recipe).

    My daughter did NaNoWriMo this year (and made her goal of 10,000 words). I, on the other hand, avoided the computer like a plague all month.

    So glad to have found you. Think we have lots in common. I’ve already checked out the DailyLearners and the Marriage is Love sites. Also, I’m in Colorado too. (Love you comment that when we see smoke we think the mountains are on fire.) Also I homeschool my 11 year old after taking her out of the GT program. (Just seemed like I ought to introduce myself.)

    See ya around.

Whaddya think?
