I won NaNoWriMo!

Actually, both me and my husband won NaNo this year. I guess the old adage about asking someone busy if you need something done is true. I mostly wrote my novel during the times when I would get up to pump breastmilk, and any free time I had (which was not much) would be spent in writing large chunks. There were about three or four days where I wrote 5,000 words, and even one in which I wrote 10,000! My husband has me beat in most words written in one sitting, though--at the very end of NaNo, he sat down with roughly 22,000 words written and didn't sleep until he had hit 50,000.

It felt good to be creative again. I can't wait until I'm done with my degree program and I'm able to have more free time!

Did anybody else reading this take a shot this year? (Better yet, did you win?)

Been better, been worse. :lol: I'm still going for my degree and working and I just had my son, Vincent. He's had some digestive issues--he couldn't handle various things in my diet (milk and soy proteins among them), so I had to stop breastfeeding him. He's had some moderate amounts of eczema as a result that we're trying to clear up. I had a car wreck which totaled my car about 2 weeks ago, but the kids weren't with me so they're fine. I won NaNoWriMo. So, a mixed bag, I'd say!

What about you? 
Congratulations on the win! :D I tried to get into NaNoWriMo, but I could never actually find the time to spit out the words :XD:

I'm happy you have another kid! :) Sorry to hear about the car, though. Rob has been staying with me for some time now and I got a new job. I'm pursuing my Master's Degree in Psychology now, and he's about to obtain his Associate's. We're both getting better now, but still no wedding in the near future :XD:.

Hope your holidays are merry!

Ironically, having to sit down to pump milk for my son forced me to make time. It was like, well, I'm going to be sitting here anyway, I might as well write a novel. :lol:

Is Rob's also in Psychology? Ironically, I have an Associate's in Psychology but I switched majors for my Bachelor's and am going for a BS/Business Management and minoring in Accounting. I'm planning on getting my Master's in Accountancy or Accounting and then sitting for the CPA exam. (Sorry if I've mentioned this to you before, everything gets blurry with a new baby . . . )

Where's your new job, if you don't mind me asking? :)

Our holidays are pretty merry, all things considered. Vincent is still sick, things got scary on that end and he started pooping and puking blood. I was like :o (Eek)  Waaaah! But two days before Christmas, we got him on his final formula (he's been through 7 all told) and it seems like he's clearing up. He completely cannot handle any kind of milk or soy protein so we had to get him on a special formula that's totally broken down so that his system can handle it. It's super expensive, over 4x the cost of regular formula, but he can eat again. Sorry I haven't been replying, he stopped sleeping during that time! I've actually had only 5 hours of sleep over the past 2 days, so I'm still I think I've fainted.
