Cutting it Close

I'm cutting it closer and closer on getting my daily NaBloPoMo post done.  Only 2 hours to get this one done.  Although admittedly, its just because I had a busy day.  I had lots to do at work.  I had to run home for an hour  to meet my handyman and get the oven installed.  Then I had one hour after work before I had to head to Stanford to watch the women's volleyball game and I chose to play with my new oven for that hour.  Then Stanford ended up playing 5 sets in the volleyball game and losing in the end.  It was rather tortuous watching the match.  It wasn't that Oregon played super well but that Stanford did not play very well.  It is not as much fun watching a match full of errors as it is a match full of great rallies and shots. After the match I had to stop at a gas station to fill up the car for tomorrows drive to Garin park.  And then I walked in the door and realized the trousers I want to wear for tomorrows hike needed washing so I got a load of laundry together and its churning away right now.   By the time I got around to this post it was a bit before 10 p.m. !!

I'm wondering just why I'm participating in this NaBloPoMo.  I'm not a professional writer.  Its not even a huge hobby.  I just like to prattle on about this and that and I don't always care how well its done.  I want to say that I don't care if anyone reads it but that is not entirely true.  I'm certainly not counting on anyone reading it but it is way fun when someone does read it and makes complimentary comments.   But I don't care enough about having readers that I feel a need to promote my blog or tell people to read it.  I also decided to do NaBloPoMo to be part of a group of people also doing it and sharing in the trials and tribulations of posting everyday for a month.  Its just fun to share the challenge of it and get "atta girls" when I succeed!
