So like many people tonight, I am distracted. I have been distracted all day, and I will likely be distracted all tomorrow. I love and hate election day. Of course it is a whole lot more fun when your guy is the one who is victorious, but there is something about exercising your right to vote. Sometimes I think it is very reaffirming. Sometimes I wish I could take that right away from people. I'm only half joking.
Anyway, tomorrow I will be taking Terror #2 with me to go vote. Well I hope to, we'll see. In true us fashion, The Commissioner left today on a week long business trip. With my license. In his wallet. So I am now without my ID. I flipped out, but thank goodness for google, it doesn't look like a drivers license is necessary. This kind of surprised me, but whatever.
Election day is a favorite in our household, but this year it will be different. I don't think Terror #1 will let me watch as the results start coming in, as the only way she would care what happens tomorrow is if Mickey Mouse was running. But I will be checking my phone early and often. Which probably means my productivity will be down a bit.
Today, however, went pretty well. I took a big step today and I posted a status update on Facebook telling everyone I was participating in NaNo. That is basically how I told my mom I was doing this. I had resisted making it public for various reasons. Not the least being I am "friends," with some people who I don't think would be very supportive. Which begs the question, why am I "friends" with them. It's a good question, which I don't have the brain power to think about now. I was also nervous about announcing it because I know there will be some friends who are extremely supportive about my attempting this. So supportive, they will want to read what I'm writing. And that is a whole other can of freak out. Actually letting someone read what I'm writing? I mean, I'm having fun writing this, but that doesn't mean anything I'm writing is any good. So to let anyone actually read what I'm doing is a whole other step that I'm not quite ready to tackle. Of course, thats down the line. First I need to write my book (and hopefully complete NaNo).
Day 5 Recap:
2,388 words written today, which makes my total word count for the 5 days 10,304. That amazes me. I am officially 1/5 of the way through my goal. A good day.
