We're just about halfway home! 10 assignments down, 11 to go. And, you are past the hardest bits, practically home free. Take a moment now to picture a lovely world where you have a whole weekend ahead of you, birds singing and sun shining, with no Cure assignments in your inbox. You'll be there soon enough and today's super quick assignment is designed to help keep you on track and motivate you to keep on powering through the rest of the Cure.

Why not celebrate yourself and all your hard work this month by adding a friend or two (or 8!) into the mix? Setting up a relaxed get together now will also help keep you on track and motivate you to stick with the rest of the Cure.

Your get-together can be as big or small as you want it to be - from a relaxed cocktail with a good friend on Friday night (January 29th!) to a cozy Saturday night dinner for four (January 30th) to a Sunday brunch for six (January 31st). The size and timing of your gathering is totally up to you.

Often, when we haven't been feeling good about how clean or organized our homes are, we hesitate to share our space with friends. Shake off your worries and know that you are getting so much done this month, you deserve this.

If you are still hesitating, its important to remember that friends are happy to spend time with you and will be honored to be invited. In today's busy world, an invite to a gathering at someones home is too rare and is always appreciated. No one will be inspecting your home - they'll be enjoying your company!

Today's Assignment:

Choose a date and time for a get-together at your home on the weekend of January 29 - 31 (or whatever date is best for your schedule near the start of February). This is a real part of the Cure, so take a few minutes and get it done. Send out the invite(s) today - a text, email or evite are all totally fine. Just make sure you get going on the invites TODAY and get them out ASAP.

P.S. - Tell us what you've planned - plus how you are doing as we head into the second half of the Cure - in the comments below...
