Sunday Update - Week 47

47 weeks into 2014.  Wow.

Three weeks into NaNo.  Ugh.

And here's the lowdown on the past week:

I rewrote 14574 words last week.  Mainly due to the fact that I wrote almost 5K last Sunday.  The rest of the week was kinda hit or miss.  But as of yesterday, I wrote for 22 days straight.  (I'm counting the day I wrote 364 words - because hey, I did write.)  This puts me at 43455 for the month and 6545 words from 'winning' NaNo.  Or 16545 away from reaching my own goal of 2K a day on average for 30 days.  I can do this.  It won't be pretty, but it'll be accomplished.  I can have this book done by mid-December.  I might be a puddle of stupid afterwards, but I can recover from that. 

In all honesty, I think I might already be a puddle of stupid.  I can't remember what I did this past week - other than writing - without looking back at previous posts here and on FB. 

We went shopping for some much needed clothing items.  Hubs and I moved a mountain of leaves down the hill.  I read a book.  (Reborn in Fire by Kasey Mackenzie - wicked awesome.)  I medicated Max and got some new battle scars from him. 

I don't think I mentioned that the Kid got a job this past week - which is an accomplishment in Michigan these days. 

Yesterday, I made no-bake cookies.  (The brownies lasted exactly 4 days - one pan cut into 8 pieces divided by two people, doncha know.)  I used evaporated milk instead of regular milk because I had an open can I needed to use before it went bad.  They taste pretty good, but man was I afraid they wouldn't set and I'd end up with a pan worth of ice cream topping.  But they set.  Whew.

Ah, the trials and tribulations of a puddle of stupid.  LOL

How'd your week go?


  1. Sounds like a productive week to me!

    Where did she get a job? =)

  2. I think old age turned me into a puddle of stupid. Life is moving too fast for me right now. I can only imagine how fast it will be in a few years.

    Your brownies lasted longer in your house than they would in mine, and there are only two of us here, too! :)

    1. It seems like it gets faster all the time, Stacy. Where did this year go? LOL about the brownies.

  3. LOL! Puddle of stupid here, too. All I can concentrate on is EBLS v2.

    Yay for your kid's job, and YUM to brownies. :-)

    1. Okay, Deb, so that's three 'puddles of stupid'. We should start a support group. LOL

  4. This time of year is always crazy. Anything extra added into the mix is fuel to the fire.

    Sorry about the new battle scars you earned. I hope Max is better.

    1. Exactly, Maria. I question the logic of slapping NaNo in November, but there it is. Bleh.

      Eh, the scars were minor. The punctures look more like needle marks than scratches. The cat's making me look like a junkie. He's lots better, thanks!
