Hello, friends, how did you first full week of 2010 go? I spent the week getting ready to go back to work on Monday; I’m looking forward to begin molding future Bob Wooodwards again. What are your plans for the weekend?
I also wanted to say a giant THANK YOU to all of you for all your kind words and adorable comments. As always, you warm my heart. It looks like So about what I said… could see its 1.700th subscriber by next week. What do you think?
And speaking of next week, I’ve got some great things in store (preview: a question for men that has had me baffled all week, a special birthday wish and, oh, what’s that thing called? Something called a video blog or something?)
As you enjoy the weekend, check out my Top 5 Favorite Blogs this week (send me your picks too!):

Ivy Leagued and Unemployed: A blog to make you laugh, though of course unemployment is never a joke
