As of 5 AM this morning, Long Island is on gas rationing based on your plate number. We have one odd plate and one even plate so today if we could find gas, we could gas up one of the vehicles. Our current plan is stick close to home and see if we can wait this out. Parts of Long Island seem to loosening up so it is a wait and see right now.
The snow is almost gone. The sidewalk and driveway are clear. We need to watch out for ice patches but that’s about it. The temperature is supposes to climb over the weekend. We still have some wind today but nothing like the other day.
Word count on NaNoWriMo is 12043 as of last night. I don’t know how much I am going to get done today as I have other obligations that take priority. I figure if I can 500 words done today around everything I have to do, I am ahead of the game. But we will see what we will see.
I need to get a puppet done in the next week because it needs to get to someone before the next weather disaster strikes. I have a feeling this winter is going to be a tough one.
And I STILL haven’t gotten the dolls done and I feel horrible about that. So that’s got to shake loose and go.
My mind is overwhelmed with all that has to be done. So I need to start with small things and work my way up to the BIG PROJECTS.
Caroline’s 10th birthday is less than a month away. Where did the time go? 10 years seemed to have gone by with an eye blink. Will the next 10 go by as fast? She’ll be an adult in 8 years. Hard to wrap my brain around. We know what we are doing for the party and Caroline is starting to get her list together of the kids she wants to invite. Now we have to pray for no snowstorms on that day.
Well I am off to start taking care of the extensive list I have of things I MUST DO (think of me saying that in an echo chamber because that’s how I hear it in my head).
I am grateful for cuddly warm blankets.
