Just realized it's been a month since any kind of post on here, and even though there isn't a whole ton to report, I was aiming for something a bit more regular.
Of course, this is the time of year when most New Year's Resolutions have fallen by the wayside. It's probably helpful that Lent falls around now - so those of us who gave up our resolutions can use the forty days while we're waiting for the bunny and the dying on the cross to happen (not to mention the rock rolling away from the tomb) to pick back up on the things we've let lapse.
Or something. I haven't given anything up for Lent this year. I figure, instead of dropping bad habits, it might be better to pick up good ones. (And come on, am I really going to go forty days without swearing? coffee? Chocolate's always a wash - the best damned candy of all only comes out this time of year. Cadbury Mini Eggs, o heaven, o stars...)
So, better habits, then. Continued thinking and planning about the future-store. Writing, writing, writing. Possibly poking at my resume, since I'm not entirely convinced I'll still be here in a year (hooray for my incestuous industry. We're #5, which means #1-4 are always eyeing us and our distributees like vultures).
At the very least, for positive things, I was able to pay off two bills at the beginning of the month. Neither of which were very big, but both being gone will let me throw some extra cash towards the larger ones. Faster those are gone (or more manageable, anyway), the sooner I can start saving more towards the grand opening party.
Which, even though it could fall in January, will have Cadbury Mini Eggs.
