     I spend a chunk of December every year working through the questions for my yearly summary post, and like previous years, I was frustrated that I have to report on my weight at the fattest time of the year! But this time, that gave me the idea of checking my average for the entire year--and 2015 was my lowest since 2009, hurrah! That was a cheer-me-up!

     When I ordered cat food on Amazon last week, I was shocked to have a case of canned dog food show up instead. But it worked out--Amazon was so good as to rush me a replacement order without charging me, and since I couldn't return the dog food, I got to give it to a coworker who keeps rescue dogs in her home. Great!

     This week I've been unfortunate enough to have my worst cold in a while. But thankfully the nights have been worse than the days, and the last two nights weren't as bad as the previous two. I'm glad I have a long weekend to help recuperate.

     Despite being sick, I made great progress on DWoT writing almost every night this week (except exercise night) and I'm now at 44,000 words and in chapter 13. Very pleased with my progress.

     My New Year's 'tradition' is getting pizza and not having to cook for a few days. So I arranged to pick it up after work yesterday, and I've been enjoying it since. Yay for junk food and a new year!
