Fen and I watched Die Hard this evening. Because it’s a Christmas movie, of course. I forgot how much I enjoyed it, as it’s been many years since last I saw it.

1 Cup of Hot Cocoa
Well, I didn’t make it to fifty thousand words this month. Just under 15,000 words short. I tried and I’m going to keep writing, and I believe that it what truly matters. I’ve gotten into the habit of writing daily and I really want to keep that momentum going.

I didn’t get the ten thousand words written that I wanted to today. I got lost down a rabbit hole of research. It is highly unlikely I will hit 50,000 words this month. I could cheat, and just say that I did it, but I’m not going to.

12 Mini Pierogies
3 Loads of Laundry Done
I’m sleep deprived. And took my sleeping medication that didn’t work last night. So I’m fighting to stay awake long enough to knock this out.
I’m still behind in NaNoWriMo, but I haven’t given up yet. I’ve got my therapy appointment with Mx. Steph tomorrow at eleven, so I’m going to spend most of my day writing if I can.
I’m goi to go appease the Duolingo owl and go to bed.
Take your meds folks.

3 Soft Taco Supremes for Dinner
1 Plate of Nachos Eaten
I’m cramping like hell today. I know I’m hydrated, so it’s likely my uterus throwing a fit. And the fact that I had to haul a giant tub of mail to the post office today. Either way, some stretching helped a bit.

1 Holiday Muppet Movie Watched
I love The Muppet version of A Christmas Carol. It is one of my favorite holiday movies. Fen and I watched it this evening on Disney+. They cut one of the songs out and we aren’t quite sure why.

I’m in the middle of an anxiety-riddled, manic upswing. As of 9:30p.m EST tonight, I have been awake for thirty nine hours. And I’m not tired. Well, mentally I am exhausted but physically I feel like I could run a marathon.

So, it was pizza and a movie night at our place. Frozen pepperoni pizza and the first disk of The Fellowship of the Ring. I forgot how much I love the LotR movies; it’s been a hot minute since I saw them last.

1 New President-Elect!
Trump lost the presidential race but still refuses to concede defeat. I’m elated that Biden won, but I am terrified for the harm the Orange Menace could inflict in the next eleven weeks.
