Flipping Palm

I hate to say it, but my "Queen Of NaBloPoMo" application will have to be swiftly denied. I was unable to write a post yesterday due to technical difficulties. Well, that is not entirely true. I wrote three posts, but could not successfully get them on my blog. Blahhh.

It is a long and boring story. Let's just say that what was supposed to be a nice, long, relaxing weekend in front of the fire at the family cabin was slightly less relaxing when I found out that the hubby's Palm would let me write a post, but not actually POST the post. There was much gritting of teeth, shaking of fists, and muffled yells (the kids were in bed) on my part. There was also much apologizing, sheepish looks, and groveling on the hubby's part, although it really wasn't his fault.

So, after letting it bother me FAR more than it should I admitted defeat to the Palm (SOB), and went to bed.
On a positive note I did get to see the first snow of the season, which always makes me feel like a kid.

Sorry to hear about your technical mishap.

And hooray for snow! As long as I don't have to shovel it.

Sorry. that last one was me. Nothing sinister, I just accidentally hit publish twice while my computer was mulling.

Aw. I think that there might be an excuse clause or something for technical mishaps like that.

I keep feeling irrational urges to sign up - but I've already missed a day (last Sunday, I think), so it's too late for me now.

So the real question is, do I keep participating in NaBloPoMo or just let it all go? The fighter in me says to "keep going", but the lazy turd says, "what's the point?". I usually don't listen to lazy turd, but it is tempting. ???

Keep going. It was the Palm's fault, not yours. Your post was written! It counts!

Besides, what else would I read from now until the end of November?!

I understand that that happens often with blogger; luckily I haven't experienced it yet but I am certain my time is coming.

Awww, that stinks.

I'm glad the snow was there and not here... Snow and I do not get along. :)

Oh. You have snow there. Oh, I want snow.

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
