With Jacob still recovering from getting tubes in his ears, he was forced to miss swimming. So Jacob and I hit the Second Cup near swimming to work on our novels. It was a productive day, Jacob wrote another 300 words and I got close to 1000. Sure I’m still behind, but I had a great time with my boy.

It’s November for some a time to grow a moustache,  or others it’s time to write a novel.  I’ve always wanted to grow a mustache for Movember but that would mean shaving off my goatee,  so that’s out of the question.  So instead I’ve taken on the daunting task of writing 50,000 words in 30 days.  A task I’ve tried to accomplish several times over the last 10 years.  I’ve only succeeded once.  Sure a few years I chose to blog every day instead of write a novel and that I have done successfully several times,  but the novel has eluded me.  So this year I’m back to noveling.

POD: Surgery Day

WaitingforSurgery
Today Jacob finally got Tubes in his ears. He was nervous but handled like a real troop. It was kind of hard watching him walk down the hall to surgery, clutching CoCo. It was all over in a few minutes. It felt like we had just sat down to wait when the doctor came out to tell use it went well. of course there was some recovery from the anesthetic, but even that wasn’t to bad. Now we have to wait and see if these tubes will stop the early onslaught of ear infections.
