We’ve had snow all week. We all came back from Christmas with a lovely cold (and in one case, a fever). Yep, we’re in the post holiday fun time of winter right now. On the plus side, snow is prettier out the window than mud. And thanks to the new treadmill, I’m getting in some early AM workouts. I am inordinately proud of myself that I am doing anything resembling running, given that it’s January and I am >38 weeks pregnant.
A few random notes.
My Fast Company post on 17 Small (And Totally Doable) Tweaks That Will Change Your Year is getting shared around a lot. My post on Why 90 Day Goals Are Better Than Year Long Ones did pretty well too. It turns out people like to read productivity and goal-setting articles during the first week of the new year!
I enjoyed Modern Mrs. Darcy’s list of big books coming out in 2015.
I am reminded that the category of “upholders” is really into New Year’s resolutions. I am a classic upholder. There are upsides and downsides to this, which I will explore when Gretchen Rubin’s Better Than Before book comes out in March (I read an advance copy recently, and enjoyed it).
I am working through copy-edits of I Know How She Does It. They are due next week. (I hope to share the cover with everyone next week too!) I also just turned in my last 3 Fast Company posts for a while. My last W-2 job was in 2002, so I’ve never really taken an official maternity leave. It is a little strange to look out and note that from about 1/15 on, I have very little on my calendar. I need to write 2 book reviews. I’ll likely keep posting here. I’m sure various things will come up. But I may actually succeed in taking some time off, which is kind of appealing.
I signed up for a half marathon in October.
Have you bought your copy of The Cortlandt Boys yet?
When you sing the song about the spider, do you say “itsy-bitsy” or “eensy-weensy?”
