Good morning crickets and welcome to day number 20 of this year's NaNoWriMo Challenge where I am still two days ahead of the recommended pace and am damn close to being two days ahead of my SNL viewing challenge as well. I think I mentioned this yesterday in passing but my new plan is to get ahead of my work as much as possible to be able to take a couple guilt-free days off for Thanksgiving.
I'm sure I'll go into the history of this more on Thanksgiving Day but I have a drinking tradition that I've consistently practiced for at least a decade and a half. Now that I think about it, this is more of an anti-celebration but it's still a tradition to me. In fact, I think it's the only annual practice that I've to fail to repeat and actually look forward to doing it.
I am extra excited about this year's reclusive festivities because it will be the first time that I will be taking an official day off since I don't know when. Granted, I did just use my safety net backup review just the other day when I accidentally turned a nap into slumber but the fact that I didn't plan ahead for this break, the guilt that I felt for not keeping my lead left me wondering if it was really worth it.
I'm hoping that by Thursday I will be three days ahead of my schedule allowing me to take not only Thanksgiving off but the day after as well since I'm sure I'll be suffering from a hangover. The third day ahead would allow me to do all of this nonsense while keeping at least a scrap safety intact in case I might need it for a future accident.
In order to do this, I really need to get to work so it's now time to move on to my next task for the day. As always, I'll keep you posted as to what I end up getting into when I check in with tomorrow's update. Until then, good day and good luck to you and all of your projects.
The Wicker Breaker
