Falling Behind #IWSG

November wasn’t great for me. I failed NaNoWriMo, barely surpassing the 16K mark. My kids and husband got sick, twice, and I had my own medical stuff to deal with. On the plus side, I did manage to potty train my son, so no more pull-ups for this squirrel. Thank goodness. I’d much rather deal…
