Not much new to update. I'm still plogging away at the edit notes for Fertile Ground. I'm still reading through Up Wish Creek. I'm still trying to get some sales from somewhere.
To that end, I have an ad going out on The Fussy Librarian on the 23rd. It's for Dying Embers - because that's the only book I have right now that qualifies with their 'at least 10 reviews' guideline. :shrug: I hope to do some other neat stuff soon.
On the 'do something active' front, I passed Day 30 of the goal. On Day 30, I did what I had vowed not to do two years ago (when I stopped weighing myself more than once a year). The results of the weigh-in? I lost 5 lbs. This, of course, is NOT in my stated goals. I started doing this so I'd stop feeling like an old lump of atrophied flesh. And that goal is working out for me. I feel way better when I'm not sitting all the time. For the record, I have not really changed my eating habits. I am trying to eat smaller portions, but I'm a chow hound so that doesn't always happen. Also I missed one day last week - Day 31. I almost missed Friday, too, but then Hubs and I took an afternoon walk of about 1.75 miles.
I participated in a USC grad student's poll about this blog :waves at the watchers: and they're supposed to take that data and see if my answers match with what I actually record here on the blog. For the question on why I blog, I put "It amuses me. Networking. Helping others." Or something like that. If what I put on here helps others, even through commiseration, it's a win. It asked what things I don't blog about - politics, sex, religion. Pretty straightforward, I think. We'll see if I just skewed his data talking about it. I don't recall a clause about keeping everything mum. :shrug:
I finally have all my tax documents, so that's on the burner for this week. Would you believe I got 5 1099s from Amazon and one from Createspace? The Amazon ones came electronically. The Createspace one was mailed. I really wish the two of them would get together and make things more congruent between them. Aren't they all the same company anyway?
Well, that's about all I got for Week 6. What was up with you last week?
