Are you loving the fresh feeling of a new year that begins in just a matter of hours? I am because I’ve just about met the goals I told you about last week.

(1) completely reorganizing our kitchen, thanks to an article in the January issue of Real Simple that motivated me to lug the ricecooker we never use up to the attic on Christmas Eve; Done! (Even our Christmas decorations are packed away.)

(2) writing a roundup for Kurvendiskussionen of all the New York City bra fitting options I’ve tried (I promised it to her last April and really, really, really don’t want to enter the New Year without having finished it); and As of this moment, I have 5 hours and 35 minutes to complete this. It WILL be finished, and you’ll be seeing a link to it in a reading roundup soon.

(3) emailing former customers to see if they’d like me to add a French blue shirt in their size to the production order I placed last week. How about you? If you order one of my shirts in the new French blue by January 2 (before my sewing contractor begins cutting the fabric), you can receive $20 off when you enter the code FRENCHBLUENEWYEAR at checkout.  Done!

Have a wonderful New Year’s Eve, everyone!
