Half Asleep and Sick as a Dog

Well, the crud has hit my family but good. As of 4 a.m. this morning my husband and I were up as two of our children were throwing their guts up and my middle daughter was coughing her little lung up. Yes, I know that sentence is full of cliches, however, the cliches sure fit the moment.

I was supposed to start my first day back to substitute teaching today. I just got activated for my district yesterday. But after dealing with sick kids since Saturday, and being up into the wee hours this morning cleaning up vomit, I put in for a "Non-Work Day" today. Today would have been my first day back working, and instead I am sitting around in a t-shirt and old cardigan with a box of tissue nearby, sniffling and feeling weak all over...oh, yeah, did I mention that I think I might have picked up the junk too? Is it awful that I am hoping if I did get it, that I would rather have bathroom issues than have to puke even a teaspoon. I HATE to throw up.

I just hate that I got NO WHERE with NaNoWriMo this year, and I sure wanted to give it a shot. Life got in the way but good. We moved for one thing, and we've been having some pretty heavy life struggles. Not an excuse. Just how it is.

Okay, well, I am going to go take some sinus medicine and maybe get some caffeine. Happy last day of November everybody.

Keep On Keepin' On

Well, life has taken some pretty sharp twists and turns this past month. I have to confess with more than a little shame and disappointment that I was not able to participate in NaNoWriMo the way I had intended. I just plain had too much going on. My family moved. I am in the process of finding a job. It looks like I might go back to substitute teaching. I am in the process of getting that all set up. I've done it before. It's not fun. However, a body has got to do something to bring is some C.A.S.H. :-)

Well, I will write more later.  My thoughts are going in too many directions right now to really get out what I want to communicate. I will try again later on. :-)

Ready, Set, GO!!

Today is the DAY! NaNoWriMo starts today. I haven't written a word yet, but I will. I hope I can pull this off. We have a lot going on in our family right now. It's not fun, and it will be difficult to find the time or the brainpower to get those words down. It's important to me to try. I hope that all who are setting out on this journey with me will have fun and meet their goals.

So....Let's GO!!!
