NaNoWriMo Day #16

Snow!  There was a rumor about it on Sunday which didn't show up but this morning when I took Sammy for his morning walk it was there.  Snow!  We made it through the walk okay.  But towards the end he had to rub his neck in dog poo.  Ick!

At the vet's office when Sammy walked back to be weighed he greeted everyone so they would know he was there to visit.  There was an accident at the onramp I normally take from the vets so of course I got lost.  It would not be a proper trip on the freeway if I don't get lost at least once.  I still managed to get to work early though, which was the goal.  With no overtime allowed I can leave early for things like picking up Sammy when I would normally be at work.  :)  He was apparently a model patient.  He was next to a bunch of 11-week-old kittens.  He could smell and hear them but not see them.  The vet said Sammy was quiet.  He didn't whine or do anything unusual.  Yay!  I don't mind if he's a hellion at home (well, I do...) so long as he is well behaved in public. 

Hubby was nice enough to pick up dinner for us on his way home.  So we ate dinner while Sammy moped at our feet.  Sammy has been tired from his visit but hubby has been all smiles to spend time with me.  We watched the pre-show to the 2008 World Series of Poker final table.  (I already know who won but he doesn't and I want to see how it all goes down.) 

Bet you didn't think I wrote today, huh?  I wrote 2047 today for a total word count of 25665.  It feels good to have 51% of this completed.

YAY that Sammy was so well behaved! LOL And I have to say my first thought was how I too find myself saying that but it is about my kids. They are angels at school and church and usually wherever else so as long as they're good in public it isn't so bad when they get so wild at home! *grins*

YAY on your word count!! Great job writing over 2,000 in a day!! Keep up the good work!

Peace, Love, Giggles, and Writing,
Deanna

Oh yeah... as frustrating as kids (and animals) can be at home, as long as the good manners shine elsewhere it's a blessing. You don't want to be the one everyone looks at like, "Can't that person get that kid/pet under control?"

Amber, you are -so- full of awesome :)

When the first post cards appeared I thought you were pretty damn cool, but they don't stop, one a day, it's amazing. You are a wonderful, wonderful friend and I'm so glad to have met you and lucky to know you.

*hugs*

I am totally going to WFC 2010 and we are totally going to have to meet up in three dimensions.

You rock.

Thank you.

And to think... NaNoWriMo and LJ brought us together. :)

Hubby and I were thinking that as long as the guest bedroom is available and you don't think you'll mind Sammy, then you can stay at our place in 2010.

Wow, thank you for the offer :)

While I'd love to meet Sammy, I don't know if I'll be traveling solo, Jo and Dani might be coming, and I have to say I found in Calgary that staying in the hotel the con was at was very convenient, so I probably won't take you up on it. I'm flattered beyond words that you would invite me though. Wow.

Seriously.

Flabbergasted = me.

Thank you.

I completely understand. When I went to a stamping convention (and the Vegas wedding) it was so nice to be in the same hotel as all the places I had to be. While you would have your own keys to come and go as you pleased, it's not the same as stumbling to your room tired as all get out only to find your neighbors are having a party so you join in. :)
