Today, your orders are to have fun or ye'll walk the plank, matey!
How cute is my nephew? This is his fierce pirate look! And my mom dressed up as a pirate just to go trick or treating with him!
How mischievous he looks! You can't NOT have a swashbucklin' FUN with him! He's full of the 'dickens', as my grandma would say.
NaNo Word Count: 8015
I had a conversation with The Hubster tonite that resembled this:
I've had a migraine all day (and managed to hit my word count goal anyway - YAY me and thank the gods for my Bed Buddy) so I'm sure that I was the major problem with our conversation.
100 Followers Contest
I am TWO people away from 100! So stay tuned for my contest next week - the prize will be a $50 gift card to your choice of Starbucks or Barnes & Noble (or $25 to each)! It will be the usual - +1 for new follower, +2 for old, etc.
Fun Kid Story
I was teaching 2nd Grade Kindness and I had a little girl tell me the following story:
One time our gardeners left the gate open but we didn't know it. When we let our dogs out to go potty one last time before bed, Josie came back and Jordie didn't. My dad was overcome with grief and worry. He started running up and down Ventura Blvd. shouting his name while my mom got in the car with Josie to search the neighborhood. My dad found Jordie but he started running away and my dad ran so fast his pants fell down and he lost his flashlight!
I love that she put an emphasis on "lost his flashlight" as though that were the best part of the story. I also love that she said her dad was "overcome with grief and worry." It's so nice to get happy stories on occasion!
What about you all - Any fun weekend plans?
What is your NaNo count? Or FinMo? Or RevMo?
My apologies to Joanna for not getting her contests up. It was all I could do to write through this pain! If your contest is still taking place, I will try to get it up on my sidebar tomorrow and do a shout out this weekend in a post!
