Halloween Cat

And on with the writing!

Okay, in the first three days of NaNo, I've had approximately four hours or so to write. This is because I have a full-time job and I'm remodeling a house, plus I have friends and a significant other and basically a life. Still, I'm at

4992 words

I think I'm doing pretty well. Before the NaNo board site crashed (at least, I assume that's what happened; I haven't been able to access it all day), someone posted that they were already finished.

Wibble. I guess some folks can actually take time off to NaNo.

Anyway, it was a very busy and productive day. We have our washing machine hooked up but on first attempt to do laundry, got our first water leak on the new tile. Called the plumber back in - they said they'd be here at 1:30, but didn't get here until nearly 4:00. Still, he fixed the problem (apparently, something as simple as no washers in the hoses), and even removed the old reverse osmosis tanks that have been sitting on our back porch since we moved here (and never, to our knowledge, worked). So that was taken care of. We wandered through Bed Bath & Beyond and got some lamps for the Mom, then came home and started putting things in cabinets. Despite looking small, these cabinets are EXCEPTIONALLY roomy. Boxes are emptying!

And my foot hurts. I'm going to take some allergy medicine (I couldn't breathe when I woke up this morning) and go to bed. Maybe I can write a little more tomorrow.

I will say it's kinda fun.
