Drum roll, please...8,717. I am delighted and amazed. The pedometer worked and I did a little extra walking outside and around the office. I've now got a baseline of an average day and I would like to do 10,000 steps on weekdays. Thanks, pedometer buddies, for your support!
The transition back to work was okay. Wrapped up my snowmen for the year, sat in on a long conference call this afternoon and even got a project done. Besides the snowmen I know both the project and the conference call have lots more to do, but it felt great getting at least one part accomplished.
I stopped at the Hallmark store tonight and bought my first Christmas present of 2010. Hurray! It''s the cutest cookie plate and I will so appreciate this sometime next December. I bought a bridal shower card for a shower I will be going to at the end of the month. Gift bought and wrapped yesterday and card bought today. I feel so organized.
I always feel a let down after New Years. No more parties, no fun mail, no decorations and long dark days. But I'm going to look at fun things for the month each time I start to feel a little glum. We have the Carrie Fisher program this Sunday, Amanda's shower at the end of the month (and that will be followed by a trip to the Christmas Tree Shoppe with Bev) and in between...Girl's Weekend in Florida, with two high school friends. We're celebrating my friend Sue's birthday and I hope, I hope basking in warmth. Just writing all this out I feel sunnier.
Along the path, Spain 2006
Warm thoughts and sunny wishes!
