NaNoWriMo Days 21 & 22

Two things happened this weekend. First, my wife surprised me with an early Christmas, and that is a shoutout to how amazing she is.

Sure, I upgraded our PC (because the old one died, and boy is that a story all by itself), but most of what I played on PC was pretty standard stuff I’d already done before.
