failure - it’s what’s for dinner

I was doing so well. I blogged through my father kicking the bucket. I blogged through my subsequent emotional freak-out. I blogged through two huge deadlines and all sorts of unreported school drama. And then - and then - just when I should have been able to truly devote myself to the NaBloPoMo thing for a couple of days, what did I do?

I fell asleep.

Yeah, that’s my big excuse for not posting yesterday. I had the laptop in bed like I usually do, and I was all snuggled up with the kid who just would. not. go. to. sleep, and I thought “I’ll just cuddle with him for a little bit” - and then I woke up and it was 12:05 and I’d missed a day of posting. Just like that!

Gah. My lameness, it is staggering even to me.

In other news, it looks like I may fail somewhat more spectacularly at NaNoWriMo, even though I swear I will need psychiatric intervention if I do because I NEVER MISS A DEADLINE and yet, here I am, 3/4 of the way through the month with only 16K words. Oh yeah, I can totally write 34K in the next week and a half. No problem whatsoever.

    Wow! I finally met someone whose ability to feel guilty is even better than mine! Cuddling with your child is more important than blogging. Sleep and taking care of yourself is even more important than cuddling and blogging. I’m a couple of decades older than you, so I have wisdom!

    Don’t feel bad; you’ve had a lot of stuff going on this month. It happens. So spend the time cuddling your toddler, and here’s wishing lots of happy sleeping for both of you.
