Beginning the new year with:
1- A new planner cover!!
2- My own positive COVID-19 test
I mean, duh . . . everyone around me has it, though the kids remain asymptomatic and are now at 11 days past their positive test result. But I was still oddly surprised & emotional about it. I guess somehow I thought perhaps I was going to be the only one in this household to escape, despite having symptoms the past several days? Again — do not trust early tests. Both Josh and I tested negative even while symptomatic prior to testing positive.
At least our quarantines are now largely in sync.
I am still doing okay (feel the same or slightly better than I did several days ago when I tested negative, so hopefully I will be very lucky and avoid getting really sick — perhaps in part due to effects of the vaccine, even though I only received one dose).
3- A new guest appearance on The Mom Hour!!
I actually did an interview for them last January (here) about staying organized as a working mother, and Sarah Powers (one of the cohosts) emailed me and asked if I’d come on for another episode . . . but with a more 2021 vibe. As you might imagine, I was so excited to return!! Listen here or whoever you stream your podcasts.
(I love The Mom Hour myself and listen to almost every episode, so this is particularly thrilling!).
HAPPY NEW YEAR. I’ve never been so excited to start a fresh one! Here’s to more health & happiness in 2021.
