NaBloPoMo: Day 30!!!

PHEW!! I can't believe I actually did it. Seriously, as silly an accomplishment as it might be, I have to say that for me, it is quite an accomplishment, nonetheless. I have spent many, many years starting various things - - journals, hobbies, resolutions, etc., and rarely do I ever follow through on anything. I'm not sure what it is about me, but I am constantly disappointing myself with my inability to finish what I start. I decided to participate in NaBloPoMo on a whim - - I think I was reading someone else's blog and saw that they were participating, and thought, "What the heck!" but secretly knew I'd probably post a couple of times and then quit. This time, however, I've surprised myself, and saw it through to the end. This was also a good writing exercise for me - - it has reminded me how much I enjoy writing, even when I don't have anything particularly witty to say. So, I think going forward, I'll be posting on a much more frequent basis.

So, if you've been checking in every day, I thank you. I've enjoyed all of your comments, and I hope you'll keep them coming!

In other news, it turns out I have a bad filling and need to have it replaced, but that won't happen until Monday afternoon. In the meantime, I'm chewing on the left side of my mouth, and drinking through a straw. I was kind of hoping the dentist would be kind enough to shoot me up with a weekend's supply of painkiller, but no such luck!

Steve has just come in with the Christmas tree, so it is time to decorate - - yippee!! Camden has been asking all day (and all week, for that matter) and we thought he'd explode if we didn't get right to it.

Good job! You've had amazing posts and inspired me to take the NaBloPoMo challenge myself.

Our tree is up and most of the decorations are, too. This could be a long month if Paco and Camden's askings are any indication...

Sorry about your tooth. :(

Oh, Kirsten, if you read this, what is your blog address? I can't find it from your profile...
