NaBloPoMo: Auf Wiedersehen, Adieu

So long, farewell
Auf Wiedersehen, adieu
Adieu, adieu
To you and you and you

We’ve come to the end of another NaBloPoMo. I made it. I’m very proud that I completed 30 daily posts 3 years in a row.

This year was the toughest.  I really hoped this annual challenge would liberate me from whatever was preventing me from being able to blog freely. Act as Drano for my brain (I’ve seen the wonders it can do on my unlucky sink in the bathroom).  Unfortunately, it didn’t. I never felt like I hit my stride, and every post felt like a struggle. I hope reading them didn’t feel that way although I don’t know if I wrote anything worthwhile this month.

It wasn’t NaBloPoMo’s fault.  The truth is that there is a lot going on that is taking up brainpower to sort and manage. My poor brain is protesting, “No more! I can’t think anything profound right now.”

As always, though, I enjoyed the challenge, and I enjoyed keeping up with fellow participants. I always learn something each year, even if this year’s realization was “there’s no more bandwidth!”

Thank you for following along. I appreciate every reader and every comment. And my tree is still not working 100% despite the MacGyver-ish attempts by Jimmy to make it work today. $%*k!!!!!

(And can we all agree that the only Maria is Julie Andrews and that there is no other The Sound of Music than the one she was in?)

Time to put away the turkeys and the russet colors and break out the red and green.

See you in December 🙂
