Happy New Year from Stifel & Capra!

It's not that I intentionally forget. It's just like I am more of an "you are in or you are out" kind of girl. What do I mean by that? You know exercising everyday and then the path freezes over so I can't walk safely. I stay home. Path thaws. Do I make my way out again? Uh, no. Blogging? Religious or non-existent. So many people said to me , what no cheery pics of the store? No humorous anecdotes of your madcap adventures? Uuuuuhhhhhh, apparently not. I seem to have been a bit overcome by the "urgent rather than the important" to quote Steven Covey. I didn't used to run my life like this. What happened?
I teasingly told my friends who asked how the shop, the kids, the family, the hubby's new job et al were going that they were all fine but I was in the "bitter and resentful" stage. Usually said in cheery voice and a hearty smile. The folks who know me remarked that this was not my normal operating mode. That this is still perceived as true makes me breathe a sigh of relief I must confess! But things ARE on the upswing. Why? I think the acupuncture is working for my neck pain (praise the Lord!). The Spouse has settled into his new job. Parents are well and kids seem actually rested and refreshed from their winter break. Thus leaving me time to quit micromanaging and worrying about them and actually focusing my attention back on my cranky self!
In my past life as a recruiter the week between Christmas and New year's was always a time for reflection and planning. I decided to go back to what works for me. And plotted. And planned. And will tell you about it. TOMORROW. Promise.
