I haven’t particpated in Nano for some years and although this year I am not sure if I am going to give it a try, I do want to finish one of my works I have been trying to publish. I recently went through my writing folder on my computer and there are a handful of ideas that I still would love to finish working on (but not until after I publish a few that are pretty much near completion).
Who else is participating in NaNo this year?
Our daughter had a lot of fun tonight. Here she is looking cute in her costume.
Happy Halloween everyone!
It is officially one of my favorite days of the year. My daughter and I have watched the Nightmare Before Christmas probably 20 times this month, she has a badass costume and we are ready to do some trick or treating tonight. We are still a few hours out from starting, but my daughter is super excited. Anyone else planning to go out and celebrate the holiday?
I have not been doing much of interest. I have just recently started working on my writing and I still am trying to adjust to balancing work and everything else. My wife, on the other hand, has been busy doing something awesome. If you saw my last post, I included a picture of the cup my wife designed for me. Since then, she’s made a few more.
This one is for a friend of hers.
This was the one she made for her mom.
These are our fake Yeti koozies. Mine is Batman and hers is Joker. Not sure who all is familiar with the Yeti tumblers, but the Walmart brand (Ozark Trail) works just as well.
This is the part where I would shamelessly advertise her stuff and try to attract some new customers, but she is still working on a batch of orders for friends. Once those are done, I will probably be back with some more lovely pictures. Let me know what you think about her work!
It’s been some time since I’ve lurked on WordPress. Life has changed a little bit- I have a new job that keeps me busy (but gives me pretty awesome off days and benefits). Working at Amazon now and so far, I can say it’s better than every other job I’ve had.
My daughter is still in her terrible twos and is both sweet and evil most days, but I love her so much. A couple weeks ago, we took her to a fundraiser at a local horse rescue and we bought her three rides on the biggest horse they had. Each time, she went around three times and was a complete champ about. No crying or anything (even though kids at least twice her age and size couldn’t handle riding the smaller horses).
My cat has gone from kitten size to adult cat size. We thinks he’s convinced he’s a dog since he’s grown up wrestling with the dogs in the house.
I got my wife a Cameo, which is like a Cricut, so she is in love with and decorated my work bottle and FETI with.
I have been working on my writing aftet a month or so of writer’s block. It’s still a struggle day to day to focus on it (especially on my work days), but a little progress is better than no progress, right?
It is also my favorite month. I love October and Halloween. The peanut and I have already watched Nightmare Before Christmas a few times and my wife has reluctantly spent at least 100 dollars at Walgreens getting us NBC stuff.
Hope everyone is doing well. I have missed my WordPress family this past month or two.
Short post. I have an interview later today with Amazon and I’m super nervous. Hoping I get the job and ready to just get this interview over with. Wish me luck, I feel like I need it today.
