Yes, the house is still under construction. And we are still living through it all. It's a first for us, having never done anything remotely like this in the past. I mean, for all the money-pit-style work we did on our first home, I think the only things we brought contractors in for were re-shingling the roof and updating the electric panel from glass fuses to circuit breakers. Oh, and our ginormous septic project there at the end. Almost blocked that out.
We're into our sixth month of project now. Into the fourth month of the temporary kitchen where my dining room table used to be. It should be over soon, or at least move on to the next phase.
But, remember how it all started in May...
So... all of this whining is my long excuse as to why I'm behind on my NaNoWriMo word count. And why my blog posts have been sporadic of late. Depending on what's going on, it's hard to think, let alone write. But I'm working on it.
If you're participating in NaNo, and feel like adding another writing buddy to encourage me to keep it up, my username is KatieO and I'm at 13,499 words as of 11/10.
And if you are doing NaNo - keep writing! Stop procrastinating by reading blogs... just write!
...And don't start any house projects!
