Though sometimes now I sit. Ahhh. What a glorious thing to do. Even went saw Les Mis (the movie) which required more sitting than I'd thought I could possibly do, just a week earlier.
I hope your New Year so far has been hugely joyous and successful.
And that it continues just that way.
I have been thrilled to get a bunch of really nice end of the year news, like books of mine on BEST OF 2012 lists, including the new JUSTIN CASE in the Boston Globe,
FLABBERSMASHED ABOUT YOU by Amazon,
and the brand-spanking new KISS ME AGAIN
from both Amazon (who listed it as a best book of December, 2012 even though it wasn't coming out until this week -- on December 26th!) and also this one from Meg Cabot, whom I adore.
(I will definitely be following up on all her other suggestions, btw -- how about you?)
Also my older kid got into his first-choice college, which was hugely wonderful.
Do you make resolutions? I do. What are yours?
1. Be more patient (I have resolved this every year since I was 10. IT IS NOT WORKING which pisses me off because I am VERY IMPATIENT and want to become patient RIGHT NOW.)
2. Do my stretches every day/become extremely strong and fit (so far so good on the stretches. However, I am not noticeably stronger or fitter than in 2012 yet though which is really pissing me off because, well, see above. It is January SECOND already. Come the heck ON, strength and fitness!)
(not me. yet.)
3. Enjoy each day. (Again, so far so good. Each of my kids cracks me up many times a day so that makes this resolution much easier.)
4. Finish both the books I have due this year. (shut up. I just got back from vacation. It's not even afternoon, okay, but it is just newly afternoon on January second. Fine, fine. Back to work I go. Luckily I am working on a new JUSTIN CASE book so, see number 3.)
Much love to all of you...
