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!)

A Week in Review

Fun, Fitness, 
Television and Movies, 
maybe a book or two. 
A weekly report of what's been happening in my real-world life.

Sunday - Made it to church but fell asleep during the first meeting so I went home and took a nap. I'm sure I did something other than FarmVille and slept but I can't think of it.

Monday - Went to the library, returned two and picked up one, and shopping. I've got some diabetic-friendly food now so no excuses. Tried a new local restaurant, it wasn't that great. Between that and the location, I give them less than a year.

Tuesday - Happy New Years! The new year started out great for both of us. I woke up way too early and read before going back to bed. M woke up and we had sex. Oh, wait, I guess I don't really need to tell you that part of my day ;-)

Tuesday was pretty full. A book, a movie, lunch out and dinner out too. We saw the Hobbit! We weren't sure what the lines/crowd would be like so we went early and bought tickets then headed to lunch. We were still super early into the theater but I had a book so I was just fine. I think the theater ended up being full but we had good seats. Getting hungry so we went out to eat for dinner too! 

I recorded the Rose Parade on HGTV so we didn't bother to watch the whole thing live. Was it as fun as I thought it would be? I don't know. The guide recorded the show that was playing but it wasn't the correct show! I saw some great water homes :-( 

Wednesday - Posted three more challenges joined. That will go on for a little bit longer, maybe through the end of the month before the yearly ones are up and running. Oh, that reminds me, I've got to get Monthly Mix-up Mania up! Little bit of Criminal Minds, Flashpoint, and Numb3rs recorded for later viewing.  

Deleted Criminal Minds and Numb3rs as I'd seen all four episodes too recently. I did make it to the gym. I did horrible but I made it. Two more challenges joined.

The clerk called M and said there was no meeting then later M received a call asking if he was coming. shrug looks like the lines of communication got crossed.

Thursday - up before noon but really just want to go back to bed. . . so I did. Twice. Once to have an actual nap and then again later to just be comfortable. Did horrible with my food, meds and testing. Joined a couple more challenges. I've started and finished three books so far this week. All under 250 pages but over 100. 

NSFW - not safe for work kind of book/post
sexy - this is a mainstream type sex book but not like 50 shades at all (that one is NSFW)
clean read - may or may not also be a Christian book 
and varying levels of sexiness.  

Friday - Library trip and gym. Doing better with my food and meds today. I did feel grumbly going to the gym but didn't want to eat-eat first so I bought a banana and fruit snacks at the snack shop. Only 10 little pieces per serving? Fine. Fruit snacks before, banana after and beef jerky so there is an open fruit snack in my gym bag. Wow, still time for reading, grocery shopping and date night!

Saturday - I needed to get four things done today and all four got done! I guess the most important were groceries and the gym. Although the cats might think Target was the most important, that's where I got there cat food.

Other Thoughts

Cammy said BYE to 2013? Fabulous idea! Check it out.

Brooke is 4.5 months old. Yeah, Janae, Hungry Runner Girl, is keeping all us up to date about Brooke, family, food and running. 

Still reading about Connecticut. Sigh. My heart goes out to the whole town! 

Some of my blog friends are running the Miami Ragnar, a 200 hundred mile relay from Miami to Key West, and filming a documentary (From Fat to Finish Line) about their journey. Twelve runners, fit enough to attempt this who have a 100 pound average weight lose.

Have you picked your ONE WORD for the year? Mine should be "health" but that's not official ;-)

check :: Monday - Where are you reading
Tuesday - 1st Paragraph/intro and Teaser Tuesday
check :: Wednesday - reviews, tours, guest posts, places I visited and want to share with you,
check :: Thursday - Purrs-day/Cat Thursday
Friday - Declutterfication Projects (a more intense clearing out and cleaning up) Would you believe I have too many books? I don't but it is true, I'm running out of places to put them that are acceptable to M.
check ::Saturday - Saturday Snapshot/Weekend Cooking/Quotes
check :: Sunday - a week in review (expanded and separate from the current Monday post)

not bad for the first week of the year!
