One Month Later


It’s been just over a month since the feature on the TODAY show and one month exactly since I pulled that epic all day/all night/ all the next morning work extravaganza of life.

And honestly, epic is the only word I can use to describe it. I have never stayed awake that long in my life. Needless to say, it was worth it. The past month has been a whirlwind…

Regular Christmas retail rush, Today Show, EPIC Christmas Retail Rush + Regular Christmas Retail Rush, Traveling for Personal Life Christmas, Christmas Proper, Post Christmas Slow Down/ Eat Leftovers for a Week Relaxing, New Year Party Time, Personal Life Travel Time, BFFF (best female friend forever) Laura Comes to Boston Time and that brings us to … TODAY! (Not the show.) Today is like, the first OFFICIAL work day of 2012. Yippee!!

And now it is time (because Christmas is over and because finally all the orders have been sent) to move on to 2012 things.

Big huge number one thing that needs to get done asap –  my .com retail/shopping cart site. If I declare publicly that it WILL get done this week, I’ll feel much more pressure to actually do it.  So there is that.

For now, this one thing is all i want to deal with. I can do that because I call the shots around here. I’ll worry about March in February and April in March. That isn’t to say I’m not scheming full-time – because I am.

Lastly, to end today’s ramble, thanks for reading/caring/sharing and supporting the merriment in 2011 and into 2012 – you’re awesome.
