November has been a long, long month. Actually, the last three months have felt longer than usual, and not in a good way. Things have been off-kilter and I’m only just getting back to a semi-normal state. In an effort to make some changes, I’m going to start focusing on two things that have nothing to do with writing.
- I’m going to kick my semi-regular Starbucks habit. I go through cycles with this one. It starts, the seasons shift and I let it go, but my trouble tends to be the fall season, when I go a little latte crazy. I need to stop, for my wallet and my waist.
- I’m going to start running again. It’s been over a year since my last regular running session and I miss it. I was never competitive or into long distances. I just enjoy the thrill of running. My knees will ache and my lungs will burn, but a little goes a long way and I want to give my self another chance.
There’s so much more I want to change, but baby steps.
What are some of your goals for December and beyond?

In reading this post, I just realized something. I live in an area where there’s no Starbucks. I’ve never been a Starbucks person, so I didn’t bother to look for one when we moved, but now that I’ve looked, the closest one is about an hour drive away. Heh.
Good luck on the running!! I look forward to one day getting back to that too. 🙂
That sounds like heaven. It’s such a drain on the $$$, there’s a shop right outside my office. Literally. There’s no way to avoid it but willpower.
