A stay-at-home Mom? You are the most get-out-and-going Mom I have seen! Your blog is full of the kind of crazy rambling jumble of actions and thoughts that spiraled through my life about 15 years ago!

But there's good new! One day the smoke clears and you see the lovely rainbow in your garden! (Nope! Never any leprechauns or gold there, the rainbow is the reward! *Laugh* )

The funny thing is, when life finally stops its crazy dance into the stratosphere, and you have time to take a deep breath, the silence hits you like a hammer blow! You will miss the madness!

I have a busy professional life and WDC gets much of my leisure time, but with both kids long out of my nest - I find life is long intervals of waiting for short visits!

So do what you are managing wonderfully so far, being a great Mom.

Incidentally, did I mention 'plain nuts' go great with vanilla ice-cream and fudge? *Bigsmile*

*Laugh* Very true . . . not much "stay at home" going on these days. Wink I'm not sure if I'll miss the madness, but I can't wait to find out. Heh. Although that's not very likely to happen, because I probably won't be a "stay at home" mom much longer.

Thank you for the compliment. I'll take the nice cream and hot fudge, please! Enough nuts in my life without adding them to my food! *Laugh*

I've just figured out a fantastic character trait for my minor #1 character, and I have gone from being excited about my NaNo project to being RIDICULOUSLY excited and impatient to begin! *Laugh*

*Facepalm* Helpful hint, my writer friends ... publishing your novel in a larger font may make it take up more pages, but really, who are you fooling? *Rolleyes*

I already know what I'm writing but I'm going to spend September and October world building instead.

Of course, Nano presents problems for me because I'm already so far in one story! I may end up juggling two projects at the same time! That should be fun!*Bigsmile*
