#WeekendCoffeeShare – New Year’s 2018

wp-image-1093036968If we were having coffee, I’d say Happy New Year!, even if it is a bit early for that.  I’ve got us a fresh pot brewed, so help yourself and we can talk a bit of what’s to come.

The new year always brings with it thoughts of new possibilities, opportunities, and of course resolutions.  Now I’m not the resolutioning type, but I do have my goals.  They are just continuations from forever ago, but they somewhat renew on New Year’s every year.  They are to (1) be a good husband and dad and (2) maintain some level of fitness.

This year, I’m adding to that list.  This year, I want to actually finish a book, and then figure out the whole self-publishing thing.  Generally speaking, I don’t mind the writing of whatever, but the publishing part scares me quite a bit.  There’s just so much to figure out, so many platforms to work with, and if you do actually make a dollar or two, how does that even work with the taxes!?  It boggles the mind!

#weekendcoffeeshare: Post Christmas, Pre New Year

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I missed my morning coffee, but that’s okay.  There’s a pot brewing now.  Won’t you join me for a cup?  Anyway, let’s talk!

I hope that you all had a very Merry Christmas!  We did, despite not feeling too well through most of the week.  Both my daughter and I felt ill right up until Christmas, but now we’re doing okay.  Perhaps we ate the sickness away.

It’s good to have Christmas behind us now, and we can look forward to maybe a little bit of less-busy time.  That would be nice.  I know that many of you will probably stay pretty busy right through the new year, and all I can do is wish you luck with that.  I plan to spend my new year’s right here at home, maybe with a nice cup of coffee and some good college football on the tele.

Speaking of the college football playoff, who do you want to win?  Do you even care?  I’m in the not caring much camp, but I will say that Clemson is the rival of the team that I pull for, so I won’t really be rooting for them.  That being said, I won’t really be pulling against them, at least not at first.  By the end, who knows.  I’ve tried to stay neutral on Clemson in the past, but it’s hard not to pull against a team dressed like that.  (All that orange!)

This past week did carry me beyond the 1,000 days writing on The Magic Spreadsheet.  You know, I thought I’d be pretty pumped on that, but honestly, I’m still in a bit of a writing funk.  I can’t explain why, it just is, and I’m trying to write my way through it.  Maybe I can figure something out in the new year.  If I can’t, I’m not sure how much longer I’ll last.

As for tonight, I think I should do a bit of reading and relaxing.  It’s back to work tomorrow after all, so I’m taking advantage of the little time left.  You guys have a great week and if I don’t see you before, Happy New Year!
