So it’s been a few days, hasn’t it? I can’t say it’s entirely my fault though – I was unexpectedly hijacked by work for a full day earlier this week. And yes, I do mean a FULL day. I went into work at 8 AM, and didn’t leave until 7:30 PM. After the drive home and a quick bite to eat, I was working remotely until 1 AM. I guess I don’t have to mention that I was completely exhausted after this, do I? And then because what I was working on was rather urgent, and folks would have questions the next day, I had to be up bright and early working from home Friday. That was one day I was so incredibly happy to be able to WFH too… I was exhausted.
So follow that up with a day-long LAN party yesterday, and there you have it: where I’ve been the past three days. I guess that’s not too weird though, I’m sure lots of folks have work + parties that tend to get in the way of NaNo. However I at least knew the LAN was coming up though. Work I hadn’t quite intended that to be so… draining on me. And my creative juices. It took all I could muster to get myself to settle down today and do some writing. I found I kept putting it off. Likely because I felt guilty for missing it for days. Yet here I am after I got my regular update in. Not *too* bad I suppose, but goodness do I have a bunch of writing ahead of me.
In other news, I put up our Christmas tree today! It’s a bit early, I know, but it’s always sad to take down Halloween decorations and not have anything to put up in it’s place. Besides I felt pretty satisfied with our Halloween this year. By the time we started taking it down, I was ready for the holidays to come. How about you all?
So we had a frightful showdown with a less-than-pleased leader of the pack, but Terry survived. Now I’m switching gears to focus on Suzie and Fred now, who are currently bored out of their minds. I guess that’s what happens when you’re in a poorly organized protection program.
