[Remember how Sandi is here the last Saturday of each month? I heart her very much. Yay Sandi!]
We are almost to the end of the first month of 2012. It’s been a fairly good month for me both professionally and personally.
After several weeks of being unhappy professionally I finally see a light. I spent a good part of one day barely able to refrain from doing a snoopy dance in my seat when that light finally started shining! I realize that no job is perfect, but with the change that I had been asking for and finally received my job got closer to perfection, and that’s good enough for me!
I decided that I really enjoy reading and that without a doubt I was going to make time to read each and every day! I also decided that I was going to do a much better job in tracking what I read or listen to than I did in 2011. So far I believe that there have been few days where I didn’t read at least a page, and I’m confident that every book I’ve read has been recorded at least once, and hopefully even two or three times! Obsessive I know, but this way I can be sure I’m tracking because if my different lists don’t match I know right away I forgot to add something somewhere.
Without a doubt the best book I read in January 2012 was Home Front by Kristin Hannah which is her latest title. I got to read an advance copy because I review for Fresh Fiction. It’s an amazing story of one family’s journey through deployment, active duty, injury, recovery, and eventual fitting back into the family during the Iraq war. Have the tissues handy because you will need them.
Is 2012 shaping up to be the type of year you had hoped? Did you resolve to change something about yourself or your job and been able to make it happen? Did you set a reading goal? Tell me something happy to keep my good mood going as the year progresses!
