Construction Update and NaNoWriMo

Construction update?

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...

At least the outside looks pretty finished now, before winter sets in for real...(grass and everything!)

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!

  1. More than a few future homeowners have the dream of living in a brand new construction. Perhaps the novelty of this idea has something to do with the fact that the house will be totally clean and modern. Maybe these people have it in their heads that a newly built house can only be filled with positive energy. In any event, the people that can afford to move into newly constructed residences usually take the step of buying a lot of which to build or finding a place in a recently developed subdivision.
