NaNoWriMo 2013: Day 16 or Another Real Productive Day


Did you note the sarcasm?

The second half of the title oozes it. Just FYI.

I was a “building aide” today at one of the school’s in our district. It wasn’t a hard day, though I was on my feet a lot more than I usually am and they hurt :/. By the time I made an uber-fast and necessary stop at Wal-Mart, I made it home about 30 seconds AFTER the school bus. More sighing. The 10yo’s birthday shindig was tonight [here for cake/presents then dinner/mini-golf with 2 of her friends]. One of the moms called while I was leaving a voice mail for the dentist [yeah – voice mail saying they have the wrong ins. info]. She asked if she could drop her kiddo off about an hour early.

Not a problem. Honest. Just didn’t get other stuff done that I’d planned. Let the kids play outside for a while. Then the other kiddo showed up. Cake. Presents. 12yo to a friend’s house for a sleepover. Meet hubs at the restaurant to drop off the 10yo/friends – because his work-day-trip to STL went long and he got back over an hour later than anticipated. Wal-Mart to get dinner for the other kiddos and a movie store to get a DVD.

THEN a chance to sit.


I’ve written a smidge. That’s not much. At all. I need a HUGE day tomorrow. Like 5K or more. It’s theoretically possible…
