Okay, the last week threw me for a bit of a loop. Early last week I got not one, but two job interviews for positions in my field, something I have been wanting for almost five years now. That was quickly followed by two job offers and the need to make a big decision. Right after the job interviews, I had to leave for San Francisco for a work-related meeting followed by a mini-vacation. We returned to Chicago just in time for Thanksgiving and the exhaustion set in. Not to mention the extreme guilt for leaving the kitties for six days with only our wonderful cat-sitter to come in and check on them once a day. So basically, I haven't left the house since Wednesday afternoon (not counting a brief run to the grocery store for some essentials) and haven't written more than a paragraph in the last 10 days. This is a severe NaNoWriMo fail. I'm not proud that I let life get in the way and interfere. But I'm not giving up yet either. I still have four whole days and while I may not reach my initial goals, I can at least try to see how far I can get. I just wanted to pop in and let you all know I am alive and my absence was mostly for good reasons. Now I am off to write, write, write!
