The State Of The Mara Address...  
I've been sick.

I felt crappy last week, went home early on Tuesday, but gutted it out the rest of the week, as well as Monday and Tuesday this week. On Wedsday I woke up at like 5am feeling crappy, checked my temp and it was 99.5 (my normal temp is like 97, so that's kinda pretty high for me), so I called in sick. I'd already requested Thursday and Friday off because the plan had been my mom was gonna be out of town on those days, so I wouldn't have a ride into work. Well, mom's trip got cancelled because it started snowing Tuesday night/early Wedsday morning and pretty much didn't stop until sometime latre last night, so we've been basically snowed in.

So, I have spent the last three days sleeping and laying curled up on the couch, trying to get better. The annoying part is my face, one side has swollen up and we havve no clue why. it happened once before and it went down after a few days without lingering problems, and this time it's going down again, but... one side of my face feels all tight and bah...

One a more positive note....

I'm gonna try to do NaNoWriMo again. I wasn't 100% sure I was gonna, but last night I had this dream, and then while relaxing in a nice hot bath listening to my MP3 player, my mind wandered back to the dream and started fleshing out the whys and hows of the story...

It's original fiction, apocalyptic, zombies, human bad guys, too... I'm hoping since it's original, I'll be able to actually complete NaNo since I won't have worries about staying in character with someone else's characters.

I feel bad that I bailed early on NaNo last year with my fanfic attempt, but... I'm gonna try again. I'm gonna try really had. Today and tomorrow will be for sketching out an outline and selecting a music playlist to keep my inspiration going strong.
