As I write this, it’s still Friday.
As you read this, it’s Saturday. (Thank goodness for the ability to schedule posts!)
In anticipation of a busy weekend that includes parent activities at J’s college through Sunday morning, some catch-up work on Sunday afternoon and then a surprise activity Jim has planned for us on Sunday night, I was in a slight panic that I would have to throw the white flag up in the air on the second day of NaBloPoMo; things are crazy around here.
My Friday consisted of Dailey Method class (of course!), a couple of errands, a shower, quick lunch, conference call, and various other pre-weekend tasks that included banging my head against the wall after looking at my to-do list and realizing that I was going to have to bust my butt to get one blog post written before the weekend. (I had planned to prepare two in advance. Ugh.)
Then I started yelling at myself (not out loud; don’t worry) for jumping into NaBloPoMo this year, because it’s exhausting being all “Go big or go home!” all the time.
Then I finally sat down to write this post and checked my draft folder to see if I could find something that I could use as a springboard for a quick post.
Then I found this:
There are only two rules for being successful. One, figure out exactly what you want to do, and Two, do it. – Mario Cuomo.
Funny how the universe has a way of providing us with exactly what we need at the right time.
(Okay, technically I provided myself with what I needed, but I had no idea that would happen when I put Cuomo’s quote in my draft folder about six months ago. Melisa: 0, Universe: 1!)
NaBloPoMo? I want to do it, so I’m doing it.
Day two? In the bag. Thanks for reading, and Happy Saturday!

You got this… pfftt… NaBloPoMo doesn’t stand a chance. You’ll own it.
Pretty awesome! I love how things have a way of working out like that! 🙂
Day 2…NAILED IT!!!…28 more to go 🙂
I had a moment of panic yesterday as we were traveling and I knew I had a party last night. Thankfully I found some wifi and downloaded the app and posted from my phone. Day 2 boom. Day 3 boom. We’ve got this!
My draft folder saved me too. I had my bucket list in the works for some time and was timing it to post on 12/31. Nothing like the excitement of nablopomo to realize, “yes it’s good now…publish!” 😉
