November 20, 2018: Health & Family

This morning I have an appointment for (hopefully) the last time. I feel okay for the most part, but it helps to make sure everything checks out. I never thought that I would need to address different health concerns this year. I guess it’s helpful to address them now, rather than putting them off. OnlyContinue reading “November 20, 2018: Health & Family”

November 19, 2018: Monday Mornings

For the first time in a while, I actually got all the things completed that I needed to do for today. Usually prepwork takes a few hours to do for me, but ot actually went fairly quickly. I had some time to write before it became very late. It’s hard to function when I writeContinue reading “November 19, 2018: Monday Mornings”

November 18, 2018: Sunday Thoughts

This Thanksgiving will have a new kind of stress for me. I think it’s the first time that I’m handling such a dilemma. Of course, the answer for me is clear, to make the best choice for my life and family. It should be interesting to see how this unfolds in the next few days.Continue reading “November 18, 2018: Sunday Thoughts”

November 17, 2018: Seeing Family

In a few days I’m going to see my family for Thanksgiving. I always look forward to seeing my relatives, even though they have their quirks at times. I think that comes with every family though. I very much want to see how my grandfather is feeling. He’s been very under the weather for theContinue reading “November 17, 2018: Seeing Family”

November 16, 2018: Shades of Winter

Yesterday New Jersey had the first snowfall of the winter season. The kicker is that we haven’t entered winter yet (we don’t experience Winter for another month). Unlike other storms when workers are given ample time to leave to stay safe, that didn’t happen yesterday. The nightmare commutes and horror stories were endless. I don’tContinue reading “November 16, 2018: Shades of Winter”

November 15, 2018: Halfway through NaNoWriMo

I reached the halfway point in my NaNoWriMo journey! It’s been quite a journey so far. I learned that a story can change at a moment’s notice, so accommodating those changes is very important. I’ve grown a bit overwhelmed also, since my story now feels like separate squares in a blanket that needs to beContinue reading “November 15, 2018: Halfway through NaNoWriMo”

November 14, 2018: NaNoWriMo progress

One thing that I’m relieved about with my NaNoWriMo progress is that I’m more relaxed about writing ‘a draft’ as oppised to a finished product. I usually get so consumed with everything looking perfect, but working on draft only requires that you put the thread of your ideas down on paper. Granted, you do needContinue reading “November 14, 2018: NaNoWriMo progress”

November 13, 2018: NaNoWriMo progress, and Flowing Again

Sometimes I wonder about the workings of life. Yesterday I returned to work, and aside from one unexpected event, it went pretty quietly. I’m back to the early routine this week. Tomorrow will be a busy one, since it will be conferences. For now, I’m thankful that I caught some sleep. My NaNoWriMo progress hasContinue reading “November 13, 2018: NaNoWriMo progress, and Flowing Again”

November 12, 2018: Monday Thoughts

It’s that peace and quiet before starting my day that I always cherish. As much as I’m actually looking forward to going to work this morning, I’m soaking up the peace as much as possible. Since I’m very aware that it will ger very busy for me in a couple hours. I do have aContinue reading “November 12, 2018: Monday Thoughts”

November 11, 2018: Veterans Day, and Activities

On Veterans Day, it’s truly important to thank those who have served our country bravely. These men and women placed their lives on the line in order to protect our freedom. I have several friends and family members who served in the American military, and I’m so very grateful for their service. Today I planContinue reading “November 11, 2018: Veterans Day, and Activities”
