Two weeks down, fifty to go. Woohoo. The possibilities are out there, people.
Okay, now that the rah-rah is over, let's get down to brass tacks.
I didn't write anything. I did go back to working on editing an old project, but then I started to think about ROI and whether it would ever make me back what I was thinking of spending on it. And I set it aside. Then I started the process of thinking which other project might blow my skirt up. The jury's still out. I might continue on with old project or go back and finish something else. Or start something new.
I set up a sale and marketing for next week for Sleeping Ugly. That checks January off of my 'one ad a month' goal.
Some reading was accomplished.
My exercise bike arrived Wednesday. We set it right up and got to work. Needless to say, I haven't been on a bike of any kind since my time in the apartment complex gym back in Utah. So, about 15 years. In under two minutes, my muscles were squealing like the little pigs they've become. I'm working my way up in duration and quantity. One 2-minute session a day, then two 3-minute sessions, etc. I might stand at two 5-minute sessions a day or every other day. We'll see. Hubs can go longer, but he's in better shape than I am. If you're interested, the one we got was the Exerpeutic Folding Magnetic Upright Bike with Pulse. Reasonably priced. Super easy to assemble, super easy to use. Big seat. Totally low impact. but man, can it get your heart pumping and your muscles working.
I also got glasses this past week. I can see! I can see! After all the kvetching and angst about going to an eye doctor, I hit the eyeglass rack at Wallyworld and found out I can see to read at a 1.25x magnification. They were only $5.88, so I picked up two pair - one for my desk and one for the living room. My old glasses are now in my purse for when I'm out in the world - writing checks, reading the labels on items, etc. And no eye exams or visit to dorkbutt optometrists needed. (My former optometrist was a dorkbutt.) Of course, I'm farsighted with no other issues, so your mileage may vary.
And we have new shower curtains. Pretty exciting stuff, eh? Hubs took the old ones out to the garage to use as drop clothes. We reuse pretty much everything we can.
As if we don't have enough baked goods in the house, I made a batch of cookies. I took my mother's old Oatmeal Cookie recipe (at least I think it was hers - it's in the book where I wrote a bunch of recipes before I moved away from home) and added the Nestles maple chips I picked up on sale. They're pretty awesomesauce. And since oats and raisins are good for you, it's a win-win.
I also did a pork roast in the new crock pot. I love this new crock pot. If you're in the market, I'd definitely recommend this one. Everything I've cooked in it so far has turned out super yummy. So much better than the old Crockpot brand.
I did a bunch of woods work earlier in the week, sawing and lugging and throwing and pulling and snipping and raking. Then Friday and Saturday it rained, so it kind of stopped the progress there.
Speaking of rain, hooee, that was a lot of water. Thank goodness it wasn't snow or we'd be buried.
Oh, and I cut my hair yesterday. It turned out super-cute. No pics, though. Just imagine me with super cute hair. LOL
And that's it for my week. How did things go for you?
