So NaBloPoMo 2011 is over, and I only missed 1 day. That’s the good news.

The bad news is, many days I was only blogging just to blog. I didn’t really have anything to say. So that’s not very illuminating or enlightening.

I’ll probably do it again next year, but until next November, I plan to blog only when I have something to say. Like today.

I somehow set up my cell phone so that if someone responds to a Face.book message or post, it rings, the ringtone being Bad Romance. And yesterday I posted a message to the family who are joining us for Christmas dinner, asking whether they wanted turkey or ham or both or something else. And my daughter responded at 2:58 a.m. So Bad Romance started playing at 2:58 a.m. while I said something long the lines of the unabbreviated version of WTF? But it’s not her fault I set my phone that way. I just hope I can figure out how to unset it. 🙂  And then her father posted something before 5, so it woke me up again.  Fortunately, no one else responded between 5 and the time I actually had to get my lazy butt out of bed.

Also, I managed to finish the horrendous ISA that’s occupied all my time at work for the last week and a half. It was like the more I dug into the process, the more I found I had to look at to be sure that we’re testing the process thoroughly and accurately. It’s a new month, and I only have 2 ISA’s and one retest this month, and I completely plan on finishing these by the 15th. It’s do-able. The one I finished yesterday was one I’d never tested before, but the ones I have for December I have tested multiple times and am familiar with the processes.

We have another contractor coming to the house on Saturday to prepare a bid. Once we get all 3 bids in, and figure out which one to accept, my house will start being repaired. Woohoo!!! It’ll be nice to be back at the house. As much as I enjoy living 10-15 minutes from work, I miss my house. I miss Joe having an office where he can keep his laptop set up (right now he uses our dining table as his workspace, which means the dining area looks like crap). I miss having 2 bedrooms (the 3rd being Joe’s office). I miss our back yard and our doggie door, which means Emmylou can run in and out any old time she wants. Okay, I don’t miss my crappy old kitchen, but we’re going to get it fixed so it at least looks presentable, even if it is tiny. And I don’t miss Joe’s having to cut the grass, because I’m allergic to grass, and it makes me sneeze uncontrollably whenever I’m around grass cuttings. But those are little things.

So I hope y’all have a lovely, lovely Thursday. It’s even lovelier because tomorrow is Friday!
