Losing at NaNoBloMo but winning at life.

I managed to blog every day in November… until the last two days. I had just returned from a long Thanksgiving weekend in New Mexico and was catching up on life. (This is why I do not do KALs nor swaps any more; I suck at such things.)

We were a travelin’ group over the Thanksgiving weekend. On Turkey Day I flew to New Mexico to spend a few days with Elder Son and family. Smokey drove to Illinois to spend that time with his brother, who was widowed in September. (Because The Bear is not into photo documentation, the blog will skip that journey. I will, however, spare you no details from my journey.) SIL had been been bedridden for several years and in constant pain, so the end was not as sad as it might have been otherwise.

    I’m glad your SIL is no longer in pain, but am also sorry for your family’s loss. Sounds like you had a good holiday weekend, though, touching in with family members.

  2. God bless the deceased and those who grieve her. imissed your links, but there is no pressure. Just want you to know i love them and they were missed

    I’m glad we don’t have to travel on holidays but it must have been nice for you to be with Elder Son even if Smokey had to go in a different direction.

    No one loses at NaBloPoMo. Y’know?
    It sounds like you had a hectic holiday — but one filled with love and support. It doesn’t get any better than that. XO

    I am with Kym, there are no losers at NaBloPoMo, I think you get extra credit for actually doing fun things during the month! XO

    Supporting people and spending time with family is the most winning thing you can do! You and Smokey did it, so you clearly win big.
