Hi guys! <3
Firstly, because some of you were watching me closely, sitting went excellently. The kids were great. I took them to the park many times and we met some other nice kids. I did not get an update on their grandmother, but she has cancer and is not expected to make it. I will most likely not see these kids again for months
, so I can't do anything. But thank you for praying for them.
Thanksgiving was great. I ate my weight in stuffing, green bean casserole, rolls, corn, sweet potatoes, and mashed potatoes. I even refused dessert. Until tonight, when Perkins had pies that people didn't pick up and were selling for half-price. I am contentedly stuffed with chocolate silk pie and coconut pie as I type this.
What did you do for Thanksgiving, and what did you eat? Did you spend it with family? tell me!! : )
Secondly, NaNo is almost over.
I am a little bittersweet that it is ending. It's been nice to have a way to pass my time creatively. Today's final number is 47,393. This stinks because I have a lot of extra things in here that need to be cut, and a LOT!
of things that I didn't even touch on. I just, today, got to where A meets J (I had some parts of them later already written, just not this scene). But the final three + years of my NaNo have not been started (not counting epilogue, that is much later), and I haven't filled in the schooling years, either. Hum.
I went to an after-Thanksgiving party at a family's house today, and I was asked to speak about my story. I couldn't really do it well but I was told by my friend's dad that he would never read it. Jokingly, of course. Thanks, Shane. >>
Tomorrow I will be seeing Catching Fire with my Meatball (Kaylee). I'm excited to see Finnick!
I am also waiting for a phone call any day or minute now that the baby is coming. I'm excited to meet G! I want to see him in my quilt. I hope he is born healthy and not purple... prayers are totally welcome!
My final paper is also progressing nicely, I expect to finish my class with an A. And Sunday's music is going to be amazing! The song Tommy and I wrote was changed to a key I can actually sing in, and I finally learned how to play it on bass.
I've gotta go, I've had two full days with non-stop action and cooking and adventuring, and now it's time to edit / save / type / re-edit / sleep.
Hope your Thanksgiving was tasty and amazing, let me know about it!
Love you guys!
