|Not a picture of me :)|
My kids and I have been sick for a week, so if I’ve been a little absent from the blog-o-shere, I’m sorry.
NaNoWriMo kicked my butt. I ended with 22, 039—which is good, but obviously short of my goal. I keep telling myself that it is 22K more than I had in October, but somehow it still feels like a failure.
I’m a bit of an overachiever, so less than perfect is never good enough. And I always make the mistake of doing too much at once.
Last month I—
- Remodeled my bathroom
- Started a new diet and exercise program (and lost 10 lbs)
- Wrote 22k
- Was sick for a week.
- Had sick kids for a week.
- Hosted Thanksgiving at my house.
- Read 5 books
- Did hours of house work
- Finished all my Christmas shopping
I look at this list and in my mind I know I accomplished tons, but why does it feel like I failed?
AUGGH!!! Am I crazy? Someone help. I’m going to lie down...I'm still kind of sick.
