Kicking Ass and Taking Names (a #ROW80 Check-In)

So we are barely out of the gate on Round 2 and I am on FIRE.  Totally kicking ass on my word count.  Part of this is because I already had some momentum going with Camp NaNo (which started on the first), but also because my sweet hubs decided we should take a short vacation for our anniversary at the end of the month (the 26th…13 years!).  So we will be headed to  Charleston!  I’m super excited.  But it also means I need to crank out my Camp NaNo words by the end of day on the 25th.  I did the math.  I have to get 2130 words a day to pull this off.  So far, I’m managing, getting up to do a sprint before my morning workout, another one or two at lunch, and another one or two after work.  Either I’m finally starting to adjust to Daylight Savings Time (cue requisite wailing and gnashing of teeth), or the motivation of NaNo is enough to overcome the general tractor beam of my nice, cozy bed.  Whatever, I’ll take it.

Hubs and I started our modified Whole 30 again on Monday.  So far that’s going well.  Latest discovery is the Tex Mex Taco Salad from Down South Paleo (I need to do a more full review of this cookbook at some point).  It’s REALLY GOOD.  Even hubby agreed it needed to go into the regular rotation.  Given that we are both taco FIENDS, this is huge.  And also means that we can use our cheat meal per week for something else.

Baby Boy Garbage Truck (aka Huck) has finally finished all his post surgery medication and seems none the worse for wear.  We’re working on training him to get used to a muzzle for when he’s outside unattended.  Not what we want to do but we like it better than having to take him in for another surgery.

And now I really need to get to my evening sprint.

  1. Wonderful progress indeed! And a fab. reward at the end as well. I’ve been married 13 years as well – 14 in July. Camp NaNo is inspiring me as well – not with big word no. but daily writing – and I’m liking that. All the best Kait!

  2. AWESOME PROGRESS!!! Happy Early Anniversary 😀
