I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Happy Monday

Last week:
Lunch with my parents, great company, lousy food. I truly hope they don't take me there again.

Weights with the trainer on Tuesday was interesting. We were doing a new twisty movement and lunch decided to come say hi. Well, the tuna didn't actually make an appearance but dang, it was close. Lower weight solved the problem after a rest.

Library trip: returned three, picked up two. Still waiting for the ones I requested. Two books waiting for me to pick up and about seven "in transit".

Totally flaked on Volleyball - forgot it was Wednesday!

Lunch and shopping with D was great. Craft fair and just walking around the mall. We were still full after the craft fair and walking around the mall so we skipped the gym. Made plans to meet at the gym on Tuesday.

Maybe car shopping???? Why yes, we did! Came home with a 2012 Chevy Equinox. It was a prior rental so we got a great deal. The only problem I can see (beside the increase in insurance) is we now have a silver car after having a green car for so long. I'll never find it in the parking lot!

Trainer Monday, workout with daughter Tuesday, Volleyball Wednesday. Library trip and a dinner out somewhere in there...will be hard to top last week.

Hope everyone has a great week planned!

People used to laugh at me when I tied a red bandana on my luggage rack so I could see my car in a parking lot, but I always could pick out my car! Have a great week of reading.

I always worry the world is ending when I go to B&N and leave with nothing. But you sure did get a lot read this week!
