I'm trying really hard to play catch up and make my word count for nano (challenge to write 50k words in 30 days). While dh was home I did only 5k words and since he's been gone i've had to deal with my on emotions, the kids and the way they are dealing with it and other life issues. It's been hard since the first couple of days after he left, all i wanted to do was cry. No writing there!

I'm now far behind and have 3 days to go. One which I will be gone for 6 hours of and will have to turn the completed piece in 3 hours early due to my time zone.

I will be missing in action for at least the next 24 hours just so that i can get it done. 18k words are left and i'm so close, i just have to do it!!

wish me luck! I will miss you all!

I was up till mid-night but it got done. 5k more is needed then the cut and paste, scrambling and then sending it to the site for the official word count!

I'm so excited cus I'm going to try to do it all today. I got 7k words done by 3 so I'm going to push for 5k by noon so that it's all set up by 3!!

    I know you and have complete faith in your writing abilities. Hopefully the kids will be cooperative in your attempts.

Just a little spare time

Friday, November 16, 2007

I have a little spare time on my hands and so I wanted to check in and say hi! Things are going great with dh here but he does leave in a few days. Then it will be me making more goals and trying to lose the weight I have gained with him here. Yes I've gained but I'm sure most of it is AF and from the soda I've been drinking. I hope that's what it is....LOL. I hope you all are doing well!


So much fun!

Sunday, November 11, 2007

The past few days have been so much fun. Dh loves long trips so that's what we have been doing.
We took a trip yesterday and we went about an hour away and to the farmers market. The man actually got mad when I started looking at the non fruit and veggie items! This is shocking cus he hates the stuff. Today we went 3 hours north to get fresh live crabs, oysters, clams and mussles! We are having so much fun and I really am starting to hate the fact that he has to leave soon. I know he'll be back but still, it's going to be a long 11 months!

Hope everyone is doing fine her on sparks!-Kat

Dh is Home!!

Tuesday, November 06, 2007

For those who don't know, my Dh has come home for a moral visit from Iraq. He will be with me for a couple of weeks. It's been super hard. All he's talked about is the nasty food out there and how it's the same thing over and over. He's taken me to a dozen or so places so far. LOL. I haven't gained back much weight though, just a pound or two and I have to count in the fact that AF is about 2 weeks away and lots of this might be water weight. I haven't been on in a while and have been slipping off of sparks. I also haven't been to the gym but we have done some of our family things such as hiking and the sort. Everyone is sick, thought we had the flu there for a while, now it's like a painful head cold.

Well, I just wanted to check in and see how things were going. Today we plan to walk part of the 5 mile hike and do some sort of sport.

  Just enjoy the time you have with the family! Can you pack him a care package to send when he goes back? What I used to do was before hubby would leave to go back, I would sneak a package in the mail so that he'd get it shortly after arriving back. It would be some new books, and PLENTY of his favourite packaged foods (peanut butter, jam, crackers, cookies, cheap dvd movies,stuff like that) and sometimes shampoo/soap that sort of thing. Once, I even sent him some kid decorated pillowcases I had washed so they smelled like home. Another time, we sent him a preloaded mp3 player too and in between songs we added .wav files of us saying how much we missed him/telling him how much we loved him and there were a few of the kids singing songs too.

As someone who has "been there and done that " LOL Just enjoy the time you have while he's home. I mean just because he's eating junk doesn't mean you have to but bah! if you're working it all off doing family things it probably is evening out at the end of the day. Was he surprised at your loss? LOL I bet he was!
See you after he leaves!! :)
