Well, it's been a while. I guess NaNo didn't have quite the lasting effect on my writing habits as I'd hoped.

There's a few things I've been meaning to mention recently and just never got around to doing it. Probably the biggest thing is I realized neither of us posted an update after our New York trip! To be honest, we may have never even mentioned here that we were going to New York. But that's definitely a subject that deserves its own post, so I'll have to get to that later.

Let's see, what else? I chopped my hair off. It's basically a chin-length bob, but since my hair is so thick, it's actually wider than it is long. I honestly don't feel like it's a great look for me, but low-maintenance wins over style in this case. I wish I had the guts to get a pixie cut, but I'm not quite that brave.

My weight-loss has come to a standstill. Actually, that's not true; it's reversed. Not by a ton. I've only put on about five pounds, which considering the fact that, for over two months now, I've completely stopped tracking of my food intake, and my workouts have been sporadic at best, I'm actually pretty satisfied. But I'm not satisfied with how lazy I've been. I keep telling myself that after the holidays I'll get back to it, even while this other part of me -- the part that lost over 50 lbs -- is screaming, "Why wait until then? Start tomorrow. Better yet, start today!" And I'm just not listening.

Anyway . . . tomorrow we'll be heading out of town for Christmas, and I won't be back till after New Year's. Not that I won't have a computer, so maybe I'll see about writing that New York update, among other things.

Happy holidays!

EDIT: I lied, it's not quite chin-length. Just looked in a mirror and realized it only goes just past my ears. The point is, it's as short as I dare go.
