Happy New Year!
A hodgepodge of updates this morning.
Have you seen the Frontiers of Fat series in the Raleigh News & Observer and the Charlotte Observer? It’s a 5-day series on obesity, and yours truly was featured in the first two days. It’s a really good series, although the second piece said my son Eli was born three months early, weighing 12 pounds. Uh…that would be three weeks early. I’m pretty sure we would have set some sort of record with that one! Here’s the link: http://www.newsobserver.com/
A reminder that I post at Go Ask Mom on WRAL’s website every Tuesday. I’ve really enjoyed this assignment and have gotten wonderful feedback. You can check it out here: http://www.wral.com/lifestyles/goaskmom/
I have **finally** decided what my next writing project will be! Cue the angels chorus!!!! I’ll have details soon, but it’s something I am very excited about, especially the part where I finally made the decision!!
And lastly, I am on such a movie kick lately. I’ve gone to the movies more in the last month than I have in the last two years! I saw Despicable Me (at the dollar theater with the kids…totally worth it), 127 Hours (by myself. I am such a James Franco fan I had to see it. Very hard to watch, but an amazing performance), Gulliver’s Travels (my mom treated the whole family. It was pretty good—a little crass in some spots, but overall good) and Black Swan (by myself. Again, I just had to see it and it was really good. Darren Aronosky rocks).
Hope everyone’s New Year is off to an amazing start. I’m forcing myself now to get on the treadmill, kicking and screaming!
