It’s been a wild couple of weeks since last I posted… here’s what’s happening.
After a lot of thought and deep contemplation of my naval, and my finances… I’ve finally given into reality and decided to move my professional office from a location an hour’s commute away, to one that is only 10 minutes from my front door. Not only does this reduce my daily commute considerably (two hours of driving, plus 100 miles, plus traffic, plus wear and tear on the car)… but in order to get to my new office, I have to drive right by my gym (the doors of which I have not darkened in months!) so I shall soon be svelt and beautiful, as well as $300/ a month richer.
Why didn’t I think of this sooner? Duh? Sometimes the most obvious choices are the ones we (I!) avoid. Who knows why. Some deep seated fear of the unknown? Inability to move off the dime? Just plain lazy? Who knows. In any event…. I am moving. That’s the first point.
It’s freezing cold here in the northeast, people. and I am shaking. Just got my oil bill!!!!! I have decided I can tolerate the temp dropping another six degrees in the house during the day. That puts it just about frigid. But I am safe and warm in spite of the degrees on the thermostat. I went to my very favorite store – Job Lot!!! and bought some cheapo thermal curtains, a couple of spring rods and hung them in the doorways from the office into the rest of the house. I turned on the portable heater (a gift from a very wise friend) and ta dah!!! Instant salon! I am able to keep toasty and warm while I work. Of course if I want to get any lunch or visit the loo I have to go out to the frigidity…. and crack the ice that forms in the sink so I can get water for my tea!!! OOOOhhhh. What a cold world! So that’s the second point. I’m Shakin’!
And finally, I’m travelin’. And this, luckily to a very warm clime. Heading for a trade show in Orlando Florida for three days of golf paradise. I got a media pass (I’m a pro blogger now on GolfGurls.com) and am heading south for just three days in the warm sunshine. In preparation I am considering a quick visit to the local tanning booth shop to get a medium spray, just a light coating so I don’t look totally gray!!!
So that’s the scoop from the wilds of the north. Tell me, what are you up to wherever you are?
