Today, I am thankful for the end of the month.
It's been one of those months - the ones that try one's patience and test one's endurance. S had three surgeries, winter storms ruined too many commutes to the office, the Swine Flu epidemic kept me at home on weekends (my apologies to the local shops I regularly frequent), my dad had neurosurgery, Halloween arrived with a vengeance at work, I received a Jury Duty summons ... Yes, just another October of record.
I don't want to repeat my October experience. I want to accomplish something of note. That's why I'm starting November with two important personal goals.
- I will participate in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and write a 50,000 word manuscript (this means almost no TV watching - sorry Project Runway).
- I will be back in the climbing gym at least 3 times a week.
For this blessing, I am grateful.
