Celebrate the Small Things - 1/Feb

Time to Celebrate the Small Things!

The instructions are simple: sign up, post something to celebrate, hop around and cheer on others, bask in warm glow. Full instructions and badge here.

This week I am celebrating:

Going to my Boxercise class. I missed it for a couple of weeks and it's so fun. I recommend punching away as stress relief and good exercise (not people obviously. PADS.)

Going out for a nice dinner with boyf and his visiting brother!

Completing line edits on 6 chapters of the MS being revised. I WILL get to the end.

It being FEBRUARY.

I would also like to celebrate ALL OF YOU for signing up and joining in. It really does cheer me so. I hope you are getting cheer out of it too!

What are you celebrating?

Check out everyone on the hop:

  2. So we better not mess with you? hahaha. Excellent week!

  3. Punching and kicking [pads!] is a great stress relief, and a nice way to vent. I'm always grateful when I can get in a nice workout -- I feel so much better afterwards.

  25. Boxercise sounds fun! Enjoy your month!

  26. I'm impressed you were able to complete line edits on six chapters of what I'm assuming is a YA manuscript in one week. You've been busy! Exercising is key--helps our gray matter focus--and boxercise sounds fun! Thanks for sharing and for sponsoring this blogfest so we appreciate what we're able to accomplish on a weekly basis, and not just pine for our big break and overlook all of the joy we experience along the way.

  27. Lots of things, Vik! The Boxercise sounds wonderful.

  28. LOVE Boxercise, haven't done it for years, maybe time to... NO! Busy, busy but I share your joy in sports which really get the heart pumping. Love the idea of 'celebration', have signed up :)
