Just Another Blog

my random ramblings about crafts, writing, books and kids


I am officially done with NaNo.  I end tonight (mostly from exhaustion and not lack of inspiration) with 50,063.

This is my 4th attempt at NaNo and my first win.  I’m so proud of myself right now.  I didn’t give up and kept up even when I got majorly behind.  I learned a lot of lessons, too, and I think I might be ready to write an original piece next year.  As in: not a fan fiction.  I had fun writing it but I have that pesky story of my own I want to tell that I just can’t seem to get out.  I think by next November I’ll be ready to write it.

Ha, NaNo’s not even officially over yet and I’m already planning for next year.

Not only did I finish tonight but I finished against great odds.

Here’s a list of what I put up with today:

  • four insanely loud children that refuse to let me sleep in on the weekends
  • 1 very sick 2yo who was running a 102 fever most of the day
  • 1 6yo that couldn’t stop coughing who I was ready to strangle…or send to her room (which ever one doesn’t get me thrown in jail)
  • 1 8yo that refuses to do her science report that is do in 3 days because she doesn’t want to do the oral report (sorry but I don’t think you’re teacher will care)
  • 1 7yo that needed to run off some energy but instead jumped around the house most of the day driving everyone insane
  • a huge mess still left from Thanksgiving that looks like no one else is even going to attmept to clean up (even though I did all the cooking)
  • my son (the 7yo) tripped and slammed head first into our stairs (so far no signs of a concussion but he scared the bajeezers out of me.)
  • and my hard drive crashed so that I had to restore it to the pristine factory settings.  I’ve spent the better portion of the day reinstalling programs and photos only to find out I never backed up my son’s kindergarten graduation pictures (must have missed them).

I’m surprised I just didn’t slit my wrists…(that’s a joke).  I was so depressed earlier and I didn’t want to end up back in that dark abyss so this win really came at a good time.
