It would appear that my grandiose plans to continue posting with the frequency I normally pester all of you with, as well as keeping up on reading all of your wonderful posts and leave poignant comments, and write a novel in the month of November (on top of, you know, work, the wife and baby, finding time to eat and sleep, etc…) was ill advised.
That was a really long sentence.
Here is the shorter version: Jester Fail.
I’m sorry I haven’t been visiting your sections of the blogosphere and engaging in the back and forth in the comments that makes up such a giant part of what makes this space wonderful. I will do better.
I’ll try to do better.
The good news is that I’ve been rocking it in my NaNoWriMo project, and have already reached 30,000 words! (30,136 as of hitting publish on this post.) So, I’ve got a large enough buffer to get me through the end of this week and the beginning of next week when the Queen and I once again drag our 7 month old away from the comforts of his home and venture out on another adventure.
If you’re keeping score (and I know you are), in the Little Prince’s short life he has already spent nights away from home in: Redlands, CA, Ridgecrest, CA, Mammoth Lakes, CA, Kings Canyon National Park, CA, Portland, ME, Wiscasset, ME, Rockport, ME, Bar Harbor, ME, and Carlisle, PA. Tomorrow night we add Phoenix, AZ to that list.
What’s wrong with us?
Don’t answer that!
Anyway… the point of this entire post was to once again drive home the fact that the Queen and I are nuts, off our rockers, the wheel is spinning but hamster is dead, not quite right, bonkers, crazy, and patiently waiting for those nice young men in their clean white coats… Oh, and to apologize for failing to keep up with your awesomesaucyness. Oh! And, to tell you how NaNo has been going for me. (Great! If you hadn’t already figured that out.)
I hope you all have a wonderful day, week, month, Thanksgiving, this, that, and the other! You’ll see me popping up on your blogs soon.
