Tomorrow is the last day of NaBloPoMo

I have to say, I will not miss the pressure of feeling like I have to come up with something to write every day! (Ha, ha!) However, it really has been fun and good for me. Since I stopped working full-time, I don't write nearly as much as I should. It has been helpful to start practicing again. Now, if I could get back to reading anything besides the internet and magazines!

Seriously, reading after having a child is difficult. The stress and lack of sleep make it hard to concentrate on anything for long periods of time. Christ, even reading a multiple page article can take hours or even days!

Speaking of Christ, I started reading Zealot by Reza Aslan. So far, it is really fascinating, but, again, only about two chapters in and the reading is slow going. In the meantime, I keep seeing books I really want to read, like McRobbie's Princesses Behaving Badly, but I'll probably start and not be able to finish those either, so why spend the money, right now? I look forward to getting through at least one book, hopefully the Aslan one, by the middle of next year!

It's crazy to think that next year is only about a month away. The older I get, the faster time flies by. I sincerely hope to one day regain that part of my brain that is currently missing and seems to have been removed, when my child was pulled from my body.
