Since I've never linked it before here is my NaNoWriMo profile.
Today, I had a long shift at work and managed to squeeze out over 2,000 words, so yay. Still at least 10000 words behind, but not too bad.

Not giving up yet though. Friday night, after I gave up for the day, I sat in bed with a notebook and began making an itty bitty outline of how I wanted the story to go. I would have tried out that outline on Saturday, but I had to take my grandma shopping, which turned out to be a shopping day of hell. Oh yeah. My favorite niece hates me now. It actually got me majorly down when that happened. No way was I going to write then.
Today there was hope on the writing front. I opened the notebook to the outline (which really isn't an outline, just a bunch of ideas scattered but, eh)and looked at the first thing I had written down. I sat, thought some, and then, words flowed. It was so awesome!
Got rid of my six foot Christmas tree. I offered it to my parents and they took it. They even already put it up. lol But it's nice. They recently repainted the family/living room, so it's all nice and fresh. They went from a trendy 10 years ago blue to a very sophisticated taupe, with an accent wall that is a shade of pink, but not an in your face pink. When I saw that one wet, it gave me a nervous tic because it was Pepto Bismal pink when wet (which apparently scared my dad too), but when it dried and cured it darkened a lot. It looks really nice.
This Friday, I intend to make lefse. I'm going to try a new recipe using potato flakes instead of fresh potatoes. I really hate peeling, and I need to find something that is easier. I even invested in a lefse griddle, which nicely enough came with some recipes, including the one I'm going to try. I have brought it up with various relatives and friends and they find nothing wrong with trying it. If I don't like it, well, off I will go to the store and buy russets.
