Two Big Victories


 

Monocogman finally made it to the top of Spirit Mountain and back down again, all in once piece, and without having to spend the night up there in the howling wind.  *Insert bells and whistles!*  This is a monumental victory for him, after failing twice in earlier attempts. You can see his blog for the details. When he got home, Monocogman stated that he is NOT interested in climbing that mountain ever again.  (Oh yes, I have heard that one before.) Within about twenty minutes he was talking about the next time...

And, today Alison met her goal of writing 50,000 words in the month of November, and is now a NaNoWriMo winner!  *More bells and whistles!!*  This is wonderful.  After twenty-seven days of missing my daughter, she is back!  Her body has been here the entire time, of course, but her mind has been on a tropical island in the midst of the Pacific Ocean somewhere.  I'm so glad to have her back.  Unfortunately, her characters are still stranded on said tropical island...

  2. For both achievements. I know a couple of older ladies who have not yet achieved that word goal. Well done to both.
