November - Month of Insanity
Originally, I took the time off work for NaNoWriMo. Thought I'd be brilliant and see if I could crank out 100K words. Hah! I dream big, don't I?
I'd forgotten that I am also studying, am a Relief Society secretary and have the end-of-year stuff for the offspring as well.
I have one exam next week and another the week after. We have a new Relief Society presidency; I'm providing necessary momentum for them to get into the swing of things. I've got galley reviews for Marry Me. A close friend has a wedding. I've got a milestone birthday in the family. Thanksgiving and a Christmas party. Support for offspring and end-of-year stuff (as the Australian school year ends in December). Also the usual cleaning, house maintenance, lawnmowing, etc and rhinoviruses that have a terrible sense of timing.
Am I getting everything done? Yep. Am I making the minimum NaNo goal of 50K? Maybe. Am I dropping any balls? Sure, plenty of them, but only the ones I know will bounce.
I am learning the fine art of Saying No. Am also ditching the unnecessary bits of the Internet so I can have a few more minutes for the things that Must Be Done.
If it doesn't need to be done, it ain't gettin' done.
And I don't feel a single jot of guilt for it either.
Her Grace: accomplishments mean XP.
