I Totally Blew NaBloPoMo for December…
Though it seems there was good purpose in the process. An opportunity became available to dear hubby from out of state that just could not be turned down. This was just before our 14th anniversary this month, mind you. But then, miraculously, things fell into place for my in-laws to keep the kids and for me to be able to go with him. It is the first time in 12 years we have traveled alone – without children – together. And the first “more than just a night” break away from both kids in about 8 years for me.
I love my kids, but this trip was wonderful. And well needed. Not only did dear hubby get business taken care of, I even made some contacts and sold a hat too! Go figure! A lot of fun. You forget what it’s like to make decisions that don’t have to take into account kids and homework and other daily routines. And I met a lot of great people. After a year of trials and hurdles, this was a wonderful blessing and note to end the year on and celebrate life and future together.
So I blew it for NaBloPoMo this time. Guess I get to add the “I Blew It” badge to the other already on my page. Oh, and that hat pictured next to my Nov 2009 badge? It sold just before I left! I hope they enjoy it.
Well certainly, it’s back to work here at home again, even though the kids are home from school one last week. Tax time is around the corner and sales tax even sooner. Paperwork really isn’t my favorite thing, virtual or hard copy. I’m trying to catch up on a miriad of things and to motivate myself to finish a certain amount of less than attractive chores (sigh). I almost want to kick and squeak, “But wait! Only a week ago I was queen!”
Ha – C’est la vie.
