Something Fun ~ NaBloPoMo

Well, I participated in the 2006 NaNoWriMo. Never finished, though. I thought it would be fun to start a HSKS group on the NoBloPoMo website for those that might want to participate. So, if you are daring and willing, please join me!!

Not Feeling Well

Not sure if it's just Aunt Flo, but Winnie does not feel well today. Everything hurts! I worked my graveyard - 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. job and then drove over to Daily Grind for a 6:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. shift. Totally forgot the potion for pain, so by the end of my shift I was in some terrible pain. After driving home I went straight to sleep and completely slept through picking up the girls from school at 2 p.m.!!! It was almost 3 p.m. by the time I got them. Poor Cree was quite sad!

Administrative Duties
Anyway, I got the matches done last night, but the list still needed a little tweaking before it could be released.

Only one more day before the swap begins!!! I can feel the exitement already :) I am quite surprised at the turn out, actually. I assumed because of the holidays that some would be sitting this term out, but we are up to our regular attendance. Yay!!

Well, I'm going to do a little homework and then head off to work again. Nigh all!!

I would love to blog more, but must run! Miss Wartbobble has children to take to cheerleading practice.
