Whoaaaaaaaaaa too long! Too long.

I used up all my writing mojo in November by participating in NaNoWriMo. I didn't win, but I had a great time and might keep working on my story... it's moody, and I had fun letting it be my structure. My days are so loose, it's satisfying to have something I want to build sensibly, with purpose.

I'm working again, just a couple days a week, for friends of mine who are very busy and have an 18 month old daughter. That's fun. She's a pretty intense kid. I truly enjoy my time with her, though the parents are worried that it's a drag. I'm not sure how to tell them that two days a week is really not work at all. They're paying me for it, after all. Ha!

I still want to write up my memories from Monza, mostly because I didn't find much in the way of useful guides when I was prepping for my trip. Things to continue on later:

- trains (are so great)
- hotels (I would have stayed in Monza if possible, but Milano is fine)
- what days you want to be at the track (Thursday, Saturday, Sunday)
- how much you're going to be walking (a lot)
- how much sunscreen you'll need (a lot)
- how badly you need to remember to bring an umbrella and a jacket and maybe a giant plastic tarp (quite)
- how fun it is (so very, very, very!)
