Happy 2008!

And we're back to it. I admit to delighting in rolling up my sleeves this morning to get back to work, even though I didn't really want to get out of my warm bed.

And . . . there's a Christmas tree set in the middle of our culdesac with a sign that says "LOST! Can you help me find my home?"

Enjoyed a wonderful holiday watching movies and listening to music and reading really good books, but the icing on the cake was hosting my family (minus my bro who was visiting friends) for a few days. We watched a few movies (baby niece swayed to the music every time), read books, listened to more music, and ran out of drinking glasses and bath towels a few times, right?

The fun of NYE was having our television die, the Ratatouille dvd not want to play, and the baby niece refusing to take a nap and getting the giggles at about 11 pm. THAT was fun. Of course then she conked out, got woke up by the canons and fireworks and yelling neighbors and wouldn't go back to sleep until around 2 am, but all in all, she was pure fun. Wiki-puka-teo!

I wrapped up a batch for a client yesterday, but today is officially back to the to-do list. It's good. I get to wrap up everything in the first week of January and then chart out a schedule. I've got an editor lined up for a revision end of January/February and I'm very excited about that. I'm actually toying with the idea of having another editor do a revision review on another novel draft that's been sitting for a few years. Must think more on that.

And we're going off sugar and caffeine for ten weeks. I began siphoning myself off of it yesterday and today will be the true test (no one here to make sure I don't partake!). Wish us luck!

And with that, I'll bid you adieu for today.

Currently reading: Twilight (Stephenie Meyer)

*sigh* back to the daily grind . . . and so I go back to your blog when feeling tired because after reading all that you're able to do in a day, my daily to-do list feels smaller! :)
