How I Kicked Off 2010

1. Sleeping. I slept my hangover away while hubby went to see Avatar. That's about a three-hour nap. I would love to compete in a sleeping contest, because I'd win first prize, hands down.

2. Cleaning up THIS mess. Today seemed like a fitting day to trot out a new blog layout. I had fallen out of love with the old white, black, and orange three-column chaos that was my old layout. When I'd installed it, I thought three column layouts were the cat's ass. Recently, mine was looking a lot more like ass, minus the cat. It was cluttery and busy and while the new one is far from perfect, it feels cleaner and more orderly, two of my favourite adjectives.

3. Running. After my Rip van Winkle impersonation ended, I went for a run. I also signed up for this Nike+ training program (click to see it in more detail):

My plan is to spend the next 12 weeks on this training program, and move into a half-marathon plan in the spring.

Hope everyone had a fun and safe New Year's Eve and that you're kicking off 2010 in style!
