Please accept my belated welcome to the new year, but the final days of 2017 left me feeling a little worse for wear. Lots of ups and downs.
Here’s an up:
I got another most welcome round of edits back on ORDER UP.
And here’s a down:
They arrived in my inbox just a few days before Christmas and needed a quick turnaround.
My editor, lovely woman that she is, allowed a brief extension due to the holidays.
Back down again:
I came down with a bad head cold (thank you very much fellow commuters and office mates who think nothing of coming into work all phlegmy).
Yeah! The oldest of my college boys decided at the last minute to come home for the holidays after all and brought his cat (meet Nala – isn’t she adorable?).
An back down again:
We had to cancel a planned road trip to NJ to visit my eldest so we could do the whole Christmas-in-Manhattan thing.
You get the picture.
Two weeks into the new year, however, I am happy to report that the bumps already seem fewer and farther between.
- Edits? Done.
- Head cold? Gone.
- College boys? Returning to campus this weekend (sans cat).
- Trip to NJ? Rescheduling soon.
Here’s to a smooth road ahead in 2018!
