Daily Update: NaNoWriMo Day 2
Yesterday wasn’t a good day for words. Sure I got a couple hundred written, but I had intended to write much more than I did. Too much happened that distracted me from what I was trying to do, but hey, that’s life. I will use this weekend as best I can to get ahead on my word count. At least that’s the plan as of this morning.
My favorite daughter had a private volleyball lesson yesterday. It was an hour that did her a lot of good. She has another today, another Sunday, and hopefully there will be more in the near future before she starts club volleyball in December. We’ll just have to wait and see. At first she did want to go, but she’s happy she went because the person we got her lessons with played volleyball at UCLA and was supposed to go to the Olympics (injury prevented him from going). He’s a really nice guy, tall! and knows all the little things that she hasn’t been able to learn through repetition, repetition, repetition. He’ll let he swing at a few, have her make adjustments, then swing at a few more. This should help her adjust to what’s been missing in her swing all along.
We also went to visit my mother-in-law and father-in-law. My father-in-law and I talked a little politics, but we’re both not enamored with either candidate. That goes for pretty much every level we have to vote for here in California. It’s a very depressing political season where the candidates do so much slandering of each other that I don’t want to vote for any of them. I mean, can we get a politician worthy of votes? Seriously? This is the best our state and country have to offer? Seems like we need to have a fire sale and clean house and put people into office that want to work for the people, not themselves and special interest. </political rant>
We also watched a bit of the Sandy Help charity event. I knew the damage on the East Coast was bad, but holy crap! I didn’t think it was that bad. Seeing the extent of the damage is heart breaking. It was annoying with the “How does it feel to lose everything?” junk the reporters were doing, but the entertainment was incredible.
This weekend is going to fly by if I don’t get some words written this morning. So…
