I am still here!

I don't remember much of this year, it seemed to slip by so fast that I am starting to wonder whether I slept through most of it :). This month is also coming to its end, very very slowly mind you, but I only have today and 4 days left before my husband gets back. I never want to be away from him for so long again, it's dreadful. It really feels like a part of me left with him. I am also getting anxious to get home now, been away from there for much to long.

On a more happy tone, I watched New Moon! :D It was so awesome, and the anticipation before the movie was so great that I read the entire saga in 4 days, again lol. It is just such an easy read.

Unfortunately I could not finish my novel for NaNoWriMo this year. I had so much going on in my head, that I just could not give the book the attention it deserved. I will be entering again next year, and this time I will be doing the prequel to my my own trilogy that I am currently busy with. Hopefully I will be finished with one or 2 books by that time. I really think writing is what I should be doing with my life, and I am just sorry that I did not realize it a little earlier.

We did get a little breakaway holiday to the mountains near Clarens last week, but the weather was dreadful! South Africa's seasons have been thrown completely haywire, seeing as it was almost winter the past few weeks instead of a hot summer. Not that I want to complain, I love cold and rainy weather.

I will officially say it now, I am trying to get pregnant :) I am hoping that this will happen in the next year or so, and I must say I am very excited about the possibility of becoming a mom. Luckily I now have the chance to properly prepare myself and get myself healthy. I am reading a lot of pregnancy magazines, and some of the things I have read scares me to death (there seems to be a lot of needles involved *shudders*) but I think I will be ready for them all.

Nanowrimo and other things

Can I just say, this week has felt like an entire month all on its own :( A week ago my husband landed in Germany, and yesterday he arrived in Belgium. What I wouldn't give to be there with him! Luckily I have had contact with him every day but it does not make it easier. On Tuesday he is going to France and on Wednesday to Wales. After that he will spend his remaining time in London before coming home on the 29th of November.

The 1st of November was also the day that NaNoWriMo started. I started with one story, then had a tremendous attack of writer's block, then moved on to another story :). It seems to be going better now, but it is really hard to sit down and write! I am a little behind on the amount of words I should have done so far, but I will hopefully make up for that soon. I found I write very well while watching a movie or series at the same time! Yay for True Blood and Vampire Diaries.

Hmmm I seemed to have missed my 1 year blogeversary. Well, congratulations to me! Once I am home I am going make a point of it to blog at least 2 or 3 times a week :). I still have another week here at my parents house before we go to the mountains for a mid week getaway, so then I guess I have to write on paper lol. Not much else news I am afraid, except that my sister and her children were all struck down with chicken pox. I am really truly relying on the well known fact that you only get it once, else I will be all itchy in the next week or so.
