Pygmy Child reminded me this week that I have often likened being a mother to being pecked to death by 100 ducks. Yup, that would be me this week.
Let me see if I can break it down for ya.
Girlfriend was in an accident last week that totaled their one and only car. The guy was speeding and ran a red light. The baby was in the car. Praise the Lord, (I mean it!) for seatbelts and carseats. Junebug, while covered in glass didn't have a scratch on her and Girlfriend suffered only abrasions and bruises. Very, very minor. Guess who is picking up the pieces of transportation? Uh, yeah, that would be me.
Guess what Mon and Tues was in Utah? UEA weekend. Meaning NO SCHOOL. So I had Little Man for two days. This is not conducive to getting just about anything done, unless you include laying in bed cuddling with a cute boy while he watches movies as getting something done. Guess who is leaving to go to San Francisco in the morning? Right again, that would be me. Guess who isn't ready to go? You are so very smart. Me, once more. The ONLY reason I am doing this post is my car is currently getting detailed so I won't be embarrassed to drive a van load of kids to the airport in the morning. The place I LURVE to take my car for a wash and a good clean out charges less than 20$ and they vacuum, shine, wash the windows in and out, shine the wheels, and clean all the vinyl and wash and dry the outside, also has internet access! Can you believe it??? So here is your post.
I am going to give NaBloPoMo a good try this year. I am facing a large obstacle my first three days by being in San Francisco, but I found out the hotel we are staying at has wireless, so we shall we. My other big commitment I am not sure I will be able to get through is the placement and maintenance of Little Man's PICC line this month. But I did NaBloPoMo last year and am glad I did, so I am going to sign up again this year and we shall see how it goes.
There ya go! Keep checking on me the next week and see how I do with the daily posts!
Oh and anyone who wants a postcard from SF, please email me your addy and I will gladly oblige ya! Gotta keep my bloggy darlings happy, or else who would read and comment? And I have such a teeny tiny posse from the comments, I think I can manage a few postcards. And if there are more, like 50? Geez, do you know how happy I would be to mail out 50 postcards for my blog fans? I would do a happy dance while I mailed them! (I leave fairly early on Sunday morning, so get in your requests by sat please!)
So name, addy, and if you want separate cards for the kids etc, please include the info. Lakotajo2 at msn dot com.

WOW, you have a lot going on!

"But I did NaBloPoMo last year and am glad I did, so I am going to sign up again this year and we shall see how it goes."

I am being super serious asking this question. Everyone who did it previously says they got a lot out of it - but what? What do you get out of it? I have been trying to figure it out, and am mystified.

This is my first year doing NaBloPoMo and I am excited, too! I think it will make me post more thought-provoking things, or at least better things than my grocery list. Heh.

May we all catch a muse and be inspired!
