Happy Two Days After Thanksgiving!

Decided to take a little break from blogging. Don’t know why, I could have described my meal in horrifyingly minute detail, but really, does anyone need to know about the depth of flavor of the chocolate cream pie? Well, even if you do, tough. That’s too much like work.

I’m kind of bummed out because I’m not going to finish my NaNoWriMo novel. I just don’t see it happening, so half of me thinks I should spend the next 36 hours typing non-stop, but I don’t feel like doing that. But if I don’t spend the next 36 hours typing non-stop, I won’t hit 50,000. I know I’ve done it twice before, do I really need to do it again, am I trying to prove anything? It’s 50,000 words of crap. Last year’s was SO much better. I went off-track somewhere in the beginning of this one and my heart wasn’t in it. So that’s my whine of the day. Don’t know what I’m going to do at this point. Check with me on December 1st.

Other than that…we’ve been low key here. I just need to get some relaxing in – I have realized that working as a contractor is great, except for the lack of vacation time. I simply cannot afford to lose a week’s pay, so while I’ve had random days off, and some days of working at home, I’ve been working non-stop for six months now, and I’ve noticed I’m really in need of a bit of a break. Don’t get me wrong, I love my work, I love where I’m working, and all I want for Christmas is an offer of a full-time job, but I’m happy either way, as long as they want to keep me.

Okay, time to figure out the plans for the rest of the day.
