I’ve been tossing around doing a weekly recap post lately. I’ve seen different variations of Five Things Friday on many blogs that I think is fun, so I decided to create a mix of the two. I figure a few topics will be consistent each week, but I’ll change up the rest. We’ll see how it goes!
1. this week in reading
Fast paced and pretty suspenseful, I am enjoying this one and anxious to figure out what’s going on. Been a little busy the past few evenings and haven’t been able to read much more of it.
2. New Books I’m excited about
I think the first time I may have heard of A Tragic Kind of Wonderful was from Grace at Rebel Mommy Book Blog. I was excited to be approved for it on Netgalley. Then my friend Michelle at That’s What She Read posted this awesome review of Stalking Jack the Ripper, so immediately purchased it. And then on my way home from work, I got the Netgalley email approving me for I See You, and I got really excited. Even though I wasn’t the biggest fan of her other book like most people where, I think this one sounds awesome. I even started a little of it last night just because I couldn’t wait – but I didn’t get very far.
3. fun thing(s) from the week
Sunnie has dance class every Thursday night. She’s part of a mini jazz competition team, and they started practicing their routine pretty much as soon as the new season began in September. I was able to peek in the room last night and watch her, and she really amazes me. I know I’m biased, but I think my girl has some real talent. The best is that she loves it and works so hard at it, because she loves it so much. Seeing her that happy every Thursday night is everything.
4. life happens
I ran on Monday night. It was only a mile, and it was slow as snails, but it was better than nothing. And I haven’t been able to run since. I tried again Wednesday night, but my leg was way too sore. I’m trying my hardest not to get discouraged.
On a happy note – I scored an elliptical for $20!! My girl friend is getting rid of hers, and I jumped at the chance. Everything I read says that using an elliptical will help me cross train and get my running back faster. We’re picking it up on Saturday night, and I can’t wait. Sunday I plan on having a hard core cardio session. I desperately need it!
5. looking ahead
Tomorrow is Dewey’s! I’m super excited. My husband has now changed his plans to not go fishing, and asked me what he’s supposed to do all day. Well, one thing will be to leave me alone and let me read. 😉 Maybe make me breakfast. I’m thinking pancakes. Lol. I have a grocery list he can take care of. After all that I’m sure he’ll find something to keep him busy. Ha!
We’re going to friends Saturday night for a fire. Same friends I’m picking up the elliptical from. Sunday I promised to take Sunnie to the bookstore as her reward for reading on Saturday. Which, let’s face it, is just as much a treat for me.
