NANO STATUS: 35,306
Okay. So. I wrote my ASS off tonight and got about 5,000 words in. WOOHOO! Go me! Tomorrow, I want to write at least another 5,000 words and be at 40K by the end of Sunday. A tall order, but I’m sure going to try to get it done.
We didn’t do much today. We just mostly hung around the house. We stayed in our jammies until nearly noon. We were lazy bums. LOL I did a lot of work on the computer to get caught up on stuff that was Non-NaNo related. Then we finally got dressed, had lunch and headed to the book store. I got four more Christmas presents. I’ve decided it’s a Book Christmas this year. I want to not only support writers but book stores and publishing in general. I’m doing my part to fuel the economy, believe me! LOL I did get two gift cards because I couldn’t find something I wanted for two of my friends.
When I got home, I assembled some of the gifts I had to see what exactly I DID have. I have all my friend’s accounted for except for one and I need to figure out something to get her. Plus I have $200 left in my Christmas budget. WOOHOO! I’m going to get the kiddo a few more little things and then I am officially DONE. I should be all done by Thanksgiving or shortly thereafter.
Yes, I am an over-achiever. 🙂
The kiddo and I made a gingerbread house, then he played Wii and I wrote. Then he watched Star Wars Episode III and Journey to the Center of the Earth.
And now it’s bedtime! Yay! Actually, he’s been a super great kid… well, most of the day. LOL
On Friday, I stopped by the liquor store to pick up a few things for two gift baskets we’re giving away at my company’s awards banquet. I bought two kinds of tequila and four bottles of wine. The lady at the counter actually carded me. I was so happy about that! She said she’d figured me for at least 10 years younger than I am. I told her I loved her. LOL I was kind of nice to get that compliment, though, especially since 40 is not that far off for me (EW. It sucks to get old… ).
Anyhow… gotta get the kiddo ready for bed and then I’m going to wrap up this chapter I’m working on, so hopefully that word meter will move just a bit more before I shut down for the night.
Happy weekend. 🙂
