Not as far into NaNo as I had hoped

I’ve not worked on NaNo much at all.

The spirit of it is wonderful, and I had every intention of going strong into it.

However, a dear friend of mine lost her daughter after a long battle with leukemia last Saturday.
Cancer kills slowly.

It’s messy and painful and I cry thinking about everything that sweet girl, and her wonderful family, went through.

I beg you to help fund, raise awareness, and rally for a cure to childhood cancer.

It is not fair. She was twelve years, five months to the day when she earned her wings



NaNoWriMo Ready, Set, ……

It’s almost here!


I’m not the only excited one in my house.

My kids are anticipating the lack of the usual ‘eagle-like’ parental eyes for the month. They still have their father, no worries about abandonment. lol. But, hubs is more likely to overlook the laundry and hair ties littering their floors than I am.

NaNoWriMo means that mom is busy writing and dad figures as long as they are breathing, all is good.

They admitted last year, when I apologized for take out most Friday nights, that they liked the break in routine. They didn’t hate burgers wrapped in paper nearly as much as I did. They seemed … okay … with me becoming a pantser mom.

So this year, I’m planning on it. I’ve got meals in the freezer, waiting on the microwave. I’ve got fresh fruits, veg, and drinks ready to go. I’ve even made breakfast waffles, pancakes and eggs that just need warmed.

I might be a pantser, but I’m a planned pantser. =-)

Be well my friends.
