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!
Thank you veterans, past, present, and future, for your service and dedication. You are the true heroes.
1. this week in reading
Another two weeks has gone by with me in a reading slump. WHY?!?! I hate when nothing appeals to me. I think I started 5 books and nothing could hold my attention. Then I picked up The Hating Game and THANK THE BOOK GODS…I loved it. I couldn’t put it down. It was fantastic, and I FINALLY FINISHED A BOOK. Now I’m back to not really knowing what I’m in the mood for. I started Keepsake and got about 20% into it…I’m not loving it as much as the other books in the series, yet. But I’m not giving up – I have hope it’ll turn around, because I love this series so much.
2. New Books I’m excited about
I think I’m starting The Chemist this weekend. Maybe. Depends on my mood, but I’m dying to read it. I’m pretty excited about all of these books!
3. fun thing(s) from the week
I ran 3 days this week, and have plans to run tomorrow morning. That is BIG for me, after not being able to run more than once a week for over a month. It makes me really happy, and I’m feeling good again. Hamstring is still not 100%, and I’m trying to take more rest days than I normally would so I don’t re-injure myself. It’s amazing how improved my mood is now that I’ve gotten back into a running/workout routine. Those endorphins – they are addicting!
4. life happens
Of everything I saw on social media the past few days, this was one of my favorites.
5. looking ahead
I am so glad it’s Friday. I have been feeling the burn out for a few days and need a couple of days to recharge. We have no real plans all weekend, and I have been itching to do some serious re-organizing in my house. I feel a purge coming on. I think that’s what I’ll spend a lot of my time doing tomorrow.
