28.(ish) Sick.

I humbly come to you requesting that you forgive me for the lateness of this post.  Yesterday I was doing some stuff when I realized the laptop was at 10% power.  I set it to charge and started doing other things.

My health began a rapid descent into the abyss known as the head cold.  By the time I got Nathan bathed and to bed, ate dinner cleaned up, etc., I felt like I was going to pass out.  I sat down and promptly fell asleep.

I woke up on the couch at 2:45 in the morning and realized with a gasp that I didn't post last night.  I meant to.  I really did.  I was going to do it after dinner and I decided to prevent death by resting.

I'm so pissed at myself for missing it.  I managed real posts almost every day of this challenge.  I've had a hectic time at work, the holiday was in there and there have been some other non-bloggable goings ons that have been taking up time and mental space.  Through all of it, I posted daily.

And then, on the 28th day, I messed it all up.  I HATE failing, especially at something that I really don't think I should fail at.

So, if you'll indulge me and not hold it against me, can we all just pretend that I posted this last night?

I will post again later, assuming I survive another crazy day in the office with my head so heavy I can barely hold it up.

Until this evening...


  1. When I look at that date of this post, all I see is November 28th :) As a matter of fact, in Blogger you can actually backdate a post if you want to. You have been such an awesome NaBloPoMoer. Hope you feel better soon!

    1. I didn't know you could back date. I wanted to get one out quick to catch up, so I just hit publish. I don't think my scheduler works - I'm probably doing something wrong. Every time I set it it doesn't post :(

  2. Do NOT beat yourself up! I think this counts. I'm sure Erica will let you have the badge anyway :)

    Feel better!!

    1. Everyone was very cool about it, which was nice. I appreciate everyone's support so much! I'm still pissed about it though because after a tough month, a stupid cold shouldn't have thrown me off! I'm feeling better mostly. Glad it's the weekend and I can sort of rest. I think it was a bit stress induced too :(

  3. This counts! We shall not speak of it again ;)
