God, my life is interesting. Don't believe me? Read on, my friends...
My yoga workshop is over as of last Thursday, so now on Tuesdays/Thursdays/Sundays, I'm going to walk a couple of miles each evening. Hopefully I can also fit some random yoga classes in every now and again too. February is the month of making this "regular physical activity" thing a reality.
I am reading "A Thousand Splendid Suns" and really enjoying it. I'm not really a fiction person for the most part, so I'm sort of surprised I'm liking it as much as I do.
I started an at home microderm abrasion thingie tonight. Truthfully, I've had it for some time, but have only used it once every three weeks or so, so there's no way that I would've seen any results...if there are actually any to be seen with this bought-it-at-Ulta kit. But now I'm going to start doing it 2 to 3 times a week to see if there is any discernable difference. Did I mention that I turned 39 last week?
We've been watching tapes of the Geej at age 10 mos. to 1 year the past couple of nights. OH. MY. GOD! What a cute, funny baby she was!! It hurts my heart to watch these tapes because she's just so wee and adorable and charming and...well, quiet. Sometimes I really miss that time before words...
I conducted annual performance reviews for everyone on my team last week. Although it's a lot of work, I really love this process because it's a legitimate way to have a conversation that focuses in on their strengths and helps them understand the areas that they need to work on. Luckily, I have a really great team with very few serious weaknesses, and as an added bonus, they're all really open to constructive feedback. Now it's my turn--bi-annual anonymous Team Leader surveys are going on right now. We'll see how I do in about eight weeks or so...
I've got some work-related travel starting to appear on my calendar in the coming months: San Antonio in a couple of weeks, Toronto in late March, and Chicago in April--luckily, all places I enjoy.
I've decided that given the choice between cookies, pie, or cake, I would pretty much always choose pie.
Okay...now I'm off to check out the results of superphatuesday.
