How Much Time Do We Have Left?

Um… A Round of Words in 80 Days… we started in October… then NaNoWriMo happened… then I put that away and moved to something new… when is our 80 days up?

How am I doing? This is going to sound familiar. I’ve written the same thing for several Wednesdays now.


It has robbed me of my energy and my brain for several weeks. One round of antibiotics did not kill it, but since I’m feeling somewhat better, I think the second round of antibiotics might have done the trick. I’ve done very little writing. I’ve done very little of anything other than taking care of the kids. Even though hubby just finished taking care of the girls while I spent two weeks in North Carolina with my parents, he stepped up even more to cook dinners and take care of me while I was sick.

Of course, he’s the one who gave me strep.

On a brighter note, it looks like I will be teaching again in the Spring. I taught Excel until my daughter was born, and I’m looking forward to teaching just one section. This also means we might be able to afford to send my 4yo to preschool/daycare, and that might give me more time to write without being disturbed.

    Hope you fully recover in time for end-of-year celebrations, I empathize. (This time of year I always get some form of icky-throat.)

    Congratulations on your upcoming teaching position, and good luck with your undisturbed writing time.

    This round of ROW80 ends on the 22nd of this month. 😉

  3. Thank you both!
    I am feeling better, and already thinking about how I’m going to revise my goals for the next round.
