NaNoWriMo and Other Things

So it's November. When was my last post? I don't even know. But here's an update on what's been going on.

Baby #4 arrived a little over a month ago.

And that pretty much covers it.

We've just been hanging out and adjusting to life. I had to get a different car to fit the entire family in. The farmer had been saying we didn't need to, but the timing worked out because one appeared on the lot of the guy we usually buy from.

Today was my first half-day back at work. Things are slow in the grain business right now, so they are letting me ease back in. With the other kids, I got to take 12 weeks off. Only 6 this time around. It sucks, but we'll manage.

I thought that being home for the first 17 days of November would give me a chance to kick NaNoWriMo in the ass this year. I even did my usual cheating, where I used something I had already hand written and not finished. I didn't start typing on it until way late in the month and I've only accomplished about 6500 words. Better than nothing, I suppose. This is one story I'd really like to finish, though. I think I say that about all of them.
