My Pebbles...

Nobody trips over mountains. It is the small pebble that causes you to stumble. Pass all the pebbles in your path and you will find you have crossed the mountain. ~Author Unknown

I have almost 200 blog posts in my Google reader. I'm afraid, very afraid. If I haven't visited, it's not because I don't want to... swear. And, in all honesty, I may end up deleting everything in Google Reader and starting fresh soon.

Oy.

My DH is proving to be the straw (bale of straw, perhaps?) that broke the NaNo camel's back. Today, he decided we would spend Fri/Sat/Sun tiling the bathroom and putting down the last of the hardwood in the little foyer thingie at the top of the stairs.

Yes. All three days.

And the simple fact is this: I have other duties that I MUST do before I can write. I have all the LASR/WC pages to build, just for starters. That is my "day" job and isn't negotiable.

The story is bouncing around in my head, but I just can't find time to get more than a couple hundred words a day (which is better than nothing, but still...), and it makes me want to scream.

DH is off quite a bit in December, too.

Anyone up for a January NaNo?

**sigh**

What Your Home Says About You



You don't come across as very intellectual or serious. You seem like a bit of a goofball.

You have amazing hygiene, and it shows. You are sparkling clean!

You are a very domestic person. You enjoy decorating, cooking, and making things homey.

You are not a nurturing person by nature, but you can easily take care of someone you truly love.

You feel settled in your life. You have enough time to focus on little details.

You are a somewhat self sufficient person. You can do fine on your own if you have to.

Your friends see you as honest, humble, and responsible.



Some, yes... some, no.

I feel your frustration. I haven't gotten any writing done in my hour of "peace and quiet". DH is still awake and chatting. He's the same way about projects. He has no concept.

Why is your husband off?

oh I'm so sorry things are not working out with Nano.

I hope you're able to get more of your story on paper.

Oh...I have SO been there. Even now, Mulletman IS supportive, but he also didn't think it would take this much work, so he's getting a bit more, shall we say "interruptive"?

Hugs!

As for blog posts to read, I take great comfort in the mark all read button. And I don't read every blog that's in my google reader every day. I have my daily reads, but the rest I don't. And when I get behind, I only comment on the most recent post. I don't have time for anything else!

I'm sorry about all the interruptions you've had. But that's good you are still writing even though it isn't as much. Hang in there.

Anyone up for a January NaNo?

YES. Especially since it is now The Holidays and I will be hibernating until 2009.

Do not poke a sleeping bear.

Just sayin'.
