The North Pole I have charted...

Now that I feel the icy, sepulchral fingers of professional development on my pseudological shoulders, I figured I should start pushing myself to work a little faster by putting up meters for my progress on the two big writing projects of the moment.  I'm also trying to exercise again, since I've gotten pretty sick of the spare tire I've grown in recent months.  (And since I just bought a year membership at the local gym, I might as well go and get my money's worth.)  Wanna know how all of my efforts to write, edit, or get to the gym today have gone?  Consult Ms. Holiday.

Ugh.  Some days it feels like there was no point to waking up at all.  At least it's happy hour now.


  1. Hey, that was my day exactly! (We had a snow day.)

    I'm ignoring my pile of job apps and raising a glass of wine to you from over here! Good luck! And if you find any motivation to write or work out, send some over here!!!

  2. I have been trying to walk my dog daily in order to work myself up to going back to the gym, where I don't think I've been on a regular basis for 3+ years and 60(?) pounds ago. I don't have time for more than 10 minutes a day since school started. I took a few lively 40 minute walks with P. Hal before school started, and it was awesome, but also proved how completely out of shape (times 1000) I am. Time is my problem. Always.

  3. P.s. I AM getting the daily walk in though. Ten minutes is better than zero minutes. If I did that three times a day, it might actually make a difference.
