The Crazy Amalgamation

Someone asked me the other day if I was "done blogging." I started thinking about it and I realized that the answer was almost certainly a no... but, as in many other things right now, finding the time to really organize whatever thoughts I'm having is far more difficult than I imagined.

Than I realized that thinking of writing in that was was really just not fair to me. Who says this blog has to be any sort of organized? Really... I mean, check my favorite posts list on the left.
So here goes nothin'.

The Crazy Amalgamation

* I am slightly depressed lately because it is November again. No, I do not have seasonal depression- I have NaNoWriMo depression. For those of you who don't know, it is national Novel Writing Month, and yet again, I simply ignore it because I am too afraid to make the time to try. I tried several years ago and didn't get past the third day. Pathetic.
I know that it takes and enormous amount of self-discipline to write an entire novel- most certainly in one month- but to be unable to even make an honest attempt is really just depressing. Perhaps the disappointment comes largely because I am now 30 years old (as of September 26th... when I wasn't blogging) and I still lack that kind of self-discipline.

*My house is a wreck. Can I stop throwing up now? Oh yes, I'm pregnant again and due about May23rd. I'm not sure how this is supposed to work with two. Isn't it smart to outnumber them???

*I got a second job... I'll be teaching at OCU in the spring. Only one class. School ends at the beginning of May. I'll have #2 at the end. Am I prepared for this? Probably not, but I am looking forward to some more adult conversation.

*Josh put up a fence around our property this summer. This might turn out to bite us since the leaves eventually just blem away last year. Not so much this year.

*It is much too close to Christmas and I have not yet started my Christmas shopping. This is making me nervous and a bit anxious. Money is obviously getting tighter, so I'm having to be more creative. So, seriously, what do you want, cause I need to get on it!

*I've been reading the Inkheart series. I've yet to read the last one. So far I'm enjoying them, though the second book is sort of slow int he middle. If anyone has the third one, please let me know so i can mooch it off of you for a few days. I've also started Audrey Nefenegger's new book Her fearful Symmetry, but found I didn't have time to finish it, so had to return it. I'd like to finish it soon, but I think that might be wishful thinking for the time being. Anybody else read a good book lately?

*I'm looking at a pink sunset right now.

So I guess you're not done blogging.

Welcome Back to blogging. No, I have not been checking on you. I had looked because you mentioned it on FB. Time will always be a problem & being Mom eats it up too. Just do what you can, when you can. As I return to NM in Jan. & go to the creative writing class there, I will be cringing in the corner, as I did nothing while away.

Yea!! You're pregnant! Congratulations!!

It sounds like there's a lot going on in your life right now. I hope the 2nd job goes well. You'll enjoy it.

I'm sorry that you're slightly depressed lately. But I'm super glad that you're back on the blogging wagon, at least for today.

It's great to hear from you. I really miss you a lot. Keep us far-away-friends posted.
