CampNaNoWriMo Week 2

#CampNaNoWriMo Week 2


Sorry for my absence. I had an operation on Wednesday last week and so a lot of stuff got put on hold. Happy to report the operation went well, and the stitches are healing nicely. 

Of course, it didn't stop me in my tracks completely. My kids both got picked for the swimming team, and so it was full speed ahead with training, and then on Sunday they had their first big competition. With both of them doing individuals and replays it was quite a long day. So proud of them. They did a great job, especially considering how late notice it was. They didn't even know how replays worked until the night before the races. Anyway, I digress...

Today's post is my (delayed) progress report of week 2 of CampNaNoWriMo. I'm not going to lie to you... it's not pretty. We're now over half way through the challenge and I'm way behind schedule. On the upside, I still have time to make a come back and hit my goal. 

Postcard for week 2:
