Stop! Thief! Come back with my time! Somebody, help! I need my two weeks back . . . .
Is anybody else feeling like this? I swear, yesterday it was Independence day and now I'm less than a week from my birthday, which is another reminder of the time thief. Sheesh.
I really did intend to come back on the 20th and write a blog. Really, I did. I guess I let all the extra hours I've had to work and my need for sleep get in the way. It truly seems like I've had not a minute to spare the entire month of October. Maybe that's why it feels as if time has disappeared.
On another note, I signed up for NaNoWriMo,--as if I don't already have enough to do. For anyone who doesn't know, NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. It's a challenge to write 50,000 words in one month starting November 1st. That averages out to 2,000 words perday, excluding Sundays with one day to spare. I haven't written yet today, because of that need for sleep I mentioned earlier, but as soon as my kids hit the hay in about 20 minutes, I'm off to start. I'll put up a tracker to let you guys know how I'm doing. Wish me luck!
