We'll All Sing Out Iiiiiit's Christmas Time! Hee Hee Hee Hee

November is almost over! I'm done with NaNoWrimo (though, my novel is only halfway complete; ninety pages and counting!) So I can post on my blog again. Here's the developments in November:

I have the best husband ever. I love him so much.

I love my baby. She is the most beautiful, most precious thing ever.

Anxiety. Lots of Anxiety in November. I'm not sure if this is because I am now a mom, or if it's because I know I'm in for a another dreaded winter, but I am almost always on the brink of a panic attack.

I finished knitting another baby blanket! This one was my best one yet! I gave to my soon-to-be niece, who is due in January.

Thanksgiving was great. The day after Thanksgiving was also great.

My celebration of Black Friday was thus; Sleep in, drive to parent's house. Use parent's computer to buy Black Friday item online. Done.
I've had my eye on this device that sterilizes water using light. It;s called a Steri-pen and with all the accessories it's around $140. It was on sale for $79 online as well as in the store. I had $50 in gift cards so it cost me $35. I still had to pay tax, but I thought it was an excellent Black Friday purchase.

I am almost done Christmas shopping! In fact, I think I will be all done by the fifth, and have everything wrapped by the sixth!

I am so excited for Christmas this year!

You Won!

You did it, writer.

Pitted against a merciless deadline and battling hordes of distractions—including the most tempting fall TV season that's been unleashed upon novelists in decades—you kept at it.

Now you've arrived at a place that very few NaNoWriMo participants ever see: The winner's circle. Overhead, the November sky is bursting with fireworks celebrating your victory, and the entire NaNoWriMo staff joins me in applauding your creative achievement.

You did something amazing this month, novelist. We couldn't be prouder.

Aw, how sweet. Thanks, Chris Batey. You brought a tear to me eye.
