So, technically it’s four months since I’ve posted on this blog, almost to the day! But I am going to do a massive cheat and write “in-between” posts corresponding to the chronological date that they happened (like my first chemo treatment, for example, or my reflections on 2018) and simply change the date on the post. Sneaky but effective.

(So if you are reading this post January 2019, in chronological order, and don’t see the 4 month gap, that’s why!)

If you are wondering why I don’t just write those filler posts instead of writing this one first (or why there is a frog in the featured image), it’s because I needed to “swallow the frog” and post something small and quick here, so that I wouldn’t be hesitant to post the bigger news.

Eating the frog means to just do it, otherwise the frog will eat you meaning that you’ll end up procrastinating it the whole day.
Once that one task is done, the rest of the day will be an easier ride and you will get both momentum and a sense of accomplishment at the beginning of your day.

In the meantime, I am mentally preparing to do my second round of chemo treatment on Thursday and am hoping that it goes the same (or better) as my first. If that’s the case, then I can write off Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday but start the following week (and the work-year) on a bright note on Monday.
