Week: Busy. Using spare moments captured here and there to write; mostly trying to put the house back in order as the contractors finish punch list items so we can't unpack totally but it's slowly moving into place. Our contractor volunteered to paint one of the walls in the living room where they put in a new window - we weren't expecting it and gladly accepted. It doesn't add to the price. He was really good about keeping us exactly to budget. Speaking of which, we hope to have everything done by Thanksgiving, and now open our home to all friends for Saturday dinner, which will also coincide with tiirz's birthday. So if you're in the Phoenix area, feel free to drop by.

Body: Tired. Yesterday my throat was sore and my head hurt, and I thought, "I have all the symptoms of a cold but not a cold." Then thought, "How is that not a cold, now?" So I give in, I have a cold. Right now I feel lethargic and headachy, but I have work to do, so I'm trying to do it. Barb is off at the Cancer Walk, and I SHOULD have gone, but cold notwithstanding, I know I can't walk three miles yet. Speaking of which...

Foot: Mostly healed. It gets sore when I walk too much (see above).

Weight: Don't ask. *sigh* I've been too tired to go to the gym most mornings, and other mornings I'm so busy trying to add to the word count I just plain haven't gone. I suck. And with the "I don't care what I eat" holidays coming up, I probably better start caring or I won't have any clothes to wear, much less the ones I haven't been able to fit in yet.

Friends List: I've been trying to keep up, but yesterday I barely did a quick skim of everyone's entries, which makes me even suckier.

Work: Lord GOD, why don't ordinary people retain simple instructions from one day to the next?!? Thank goodness the new guy I'm training appears to have a brain. This is a rare commodity in the mailroom.

Don't beat yourself up about the gym. You're still recovering from surgery, for FSM's sake. The last thing you want to do is make your foot worse and then end up back in bed/on the easy chair.

And trust me, if I were anywhere near Phoenix, I'd be stopping by. Someday I'll meet you guys. ::hopes::

Thanks. :-) I'll get there, I know it. But in the meantime, there's chocolate...

I know! I wish we did have the magic tessaract that sillymagpie dreams of - just step from what place you're in to what place you want to be! You know you're invited, any time you do happen to be in the neighborhood!

Thanks!

I pushed Thursday to make 25,000 so as to be at the halfway; maybe next week (ha ha) I'll have a little time, since I have a couple of days off (including Thanksgiving).

i can no longer feel my fingers or hold anything with my bad hand. I'm nearly 30K but my hand could fall off

Yikes. Well, maybe NaNo could get a rest... (I'm not real good at typing one-handed, either)

You know, I don't think this is anything to worry about. Because of your foot, you're doing a LOT less than you normally would... once it's all healed up, you'll start picking up again and it will all balance out.

I hope so. Especially since we stopped at Trader Joe's and the Candy Cane Joe-Joe's are out... *g*

I know! I saw that last week and have already bought two boxes. I'm so totally doomed.

And for another treat, they also have these dark-chocolate-covered shortbread star cookies that are TO DIE FOR.

Curse them!

If you admit you have a cold, then the cold will win! Bombard it with healthy food and vitamins until it crawls away.

Yay for the word count, you crazy NaNoWriMo-er, Sir! Type like a hurricane!

Uh huh. I slept until noon. Yeek.

I shall NaNo until I drop. *g*
