Soooooo, Nanowrimo isn't coming along as good as I had hoped. I wrote quite a lot on Friday, but then couldn't get back on track Saturday. And I only had half a day, because I was leaving for Amsterdam for a concert of Michael Bublé, so not much time anyway.
Got back today, Sunday, but ... I'm too tired to write. I did write a bit, so I'm hopeful I can catch up tomorrow.
In fact I'm too tired to write much anyway. I had planned to write some more here on LJ, but I've come to the conclusion that the best thing I can do right now is roll over and play dead in bed and get some much needed sleep. :D

Yes, it's November and that means NaNoWriMo !!! I've picked up my 'old' story again. I had written 50.000+ words in 2017, but lost some steam by the start of December and just couldn't bring myself to get back into writing it. This last month I've been going through it again and it ain't half bad and new ideas came to me and stories started to take shape in my head. And I'm ready for this one again.
I've made quite a lot of 'work on this part' and 'give more explanations of this' remarks, but also a few a few 'Really?? Girl, this makes NO sense whatsoever. Do a better job!'

I missed out on the Halloween fun. The hubby and Iris were once again dressed up as creepy goons, but I didn't get to see them, because I had a nice dinner with my colleagues from work, which was also a goodbye-dinner for one them who quit her job. It was fun. We laughed a lot, but it took AGES to get our meals (it was a busy night!) and by the time I got home, Halloween was over. And I didn't get to see the hubby and Iris in action.
But...! I got a picture!

In other SHOCKING news... I'm trying to lose weight again.. What? Again? Yes. Again. I've decided to call this one 'The Final Countdown' though, as it's my final attempt. Sounds ominous, I know, but it's not all that bad. Menopauze is just NOT helping. And I'm tired of being tired, overweight and not able to participate in things I enjoy because of all that extra weight. I have to lose 100 kg. I've given myself 2 years (100 weeks) to do it. Sounds fair enough to me. :)

1. My desk-chair is finally put together and it's awesome!

2. Dinner was ready when I came home, because the hubby had a day off. He starts a new job next Monday! Yeah!

3. The Nanowrimo has started and i have my first 1867 words!

My 3 inspiration cards for today were:
1. Today I will do something where I can get my creativity to flow... (I've started the NaNo!)
2. Whatever happens, I can handle it as long as I just keep breathing slowly. (Had a explanation on the procedures in our warehouse which took about 1 hour of standing/walking... Breath slowly... And don't forget your painkillers for knees and back)
3. Have beautiful thoughts. It will make you glow and you'll always look amazing. (I was rather cheerful today... after I survived the warehouse thing. )

Off to hang my laundry and get some sleep. Tomorrow is another day.

Today's is quite a good day. Watched my 'little' girl ( 18 years old now ) finally get her HAVO-diploma and I'm so bleeping proud of her!!!

Other than that I'm fine, but tired and very happy. Finally the weather has become somewhat cooler so it's more breathable during the day and (more importantly!) during the night. Catching up on a little sleep again.

I have an idea for a K/S story, an AU one, but .... I dunno... maybe... who knows... I still have to finish 'Your cheating heart' and I love/hate that story, because it's my head and on my mind, but I can't/won't find time to continue writing.

Just 4 more weeks until my holidays start (which is the moment the hubby + Iris leave for their holiday) and 5.5 weeks until I have my own 1 week of holidays. I didn't want to take too much time off because I wasn't sure if I wanted to stay in that company. But I think I will stay as long as they want me.

Oh,.. And Iris wants to get her driver's licence...

3 things that made me smile today:
1. Watching Iris on that stage getting her diploma
2. Only had to work 4 hours (because school-ceremony started at 3 in the afternoon)
3. I managed to get the holiday-house for my daughter and husband paid, make an appointment to get my car checked out on Aug 12. and make 2 appointments with my doctor also in Aug, when I have my 1 week of holidays. I rule !!!! :D

Been a long day and I'm off to bed soon, but just wanted to write down a few things.

3 things that made me happy today:

1. Good day at work. :D
2. Had a good dinner. :D
3. That short, but hot shower this morning at 5.45 am, slowly waking me up for the day. :D

Slightly worried about holiday-plans as payment for the reservation hubby/kid did, can't be made because my card is not accepted. Which sucks. Might have to call the bank tomorrow.

I have half a day off tomorrow because Iris is getting her HAVO-diploma. Sooooooooo, proud of her.

Good night!

So here I go again, on my own!

Diving in!

I'll keep it short, because I'm too tired, but:

1. I got job!
2. I once again have a bit of money to spend!
3. I feel slowly more independent!
4. I am quite satisfied with myself at the moment
5. I have not lost that much weight, but that's not my priority.

Holidays of my hubby and daughter is approaching and though I hate to see her so far away from me, at the same time I'm looking forward to 2,5 weeks of 'me' time. I'll be very busy, I presume, but I've my plan in such a way that I will have 6 days of almost nothingness by the time I'm done.

Oh, and despite the current ups and downs... I'm carefully happy.
