Having sucked thus far at both daily and weekly blogging, I’m trying for month-at-a-glance updates.

IN NOVEMBER I…
made it past the 5oth chapter of Moby-Dick poems and am writing away.
managed to spend 6 months not finding a boyfriend the first time I’ve ever actually made a full-steam-ahead attempt to find one. I have no problem attracting 30 year olds. 50 year olds, not so much.
subbed a chapbook, finished an anthology mss., and subbed to a journal. Yet I managed to publish nothing in November.
had back pain, grinding knee, and neck pain have trashed my ability to sleep before, say, 2am 5 nights per week or so. And I’m so stressed out over…everything …that I have at least 1 migraine per week.
slacked off old physical therapy routine and intro yoga for my back because of stupid knee. Will begin physical therapy for knee this month.
,following two text-less months, finally got my text service fixed. Yay!
saved all my pennies for months to buy a semi-warm winter coat and boots. I love them! And my 10-year-old (queen) sheets finally disintegrated so I got to makeover my (full) bed in earth tones that fit. Bought polka-dotted pajamas too 🙂
still couldn’t get through a whole novel. I read three non-poetry books the entire year. That bites.
ran into, had coffee with, my sister.
had a solitary Thanksgiving that made me feel happy just remembering when my parents and nine siblings sat around the table together for 16 years.
