Late Sunday Night Blatherings
A lot of other stuff is going on at work, but I'm trying to not let my job permeate every other aspect of my life. That's easier said than done! One big thing I did this past week was splurge on some big ticket items for my house. I finally realized that the backaches were simply not worth it and went to buy a new bed, which I can't wait to be delivered! I also picked up a treadmill, which I think is an essential at this point. As our lives change, so do those habits we established earlier on in life. A college student's lifestyle (at least for me), was much more conducive to fitting in a trip to the gym. Now I'd rather die than come home late afternoon or early evening (forget early morning--that would be like 5 am and I'm NOT doing that) and put on gym clothes, brave the traffic and construction around my area to drive up to my gym. In other words, I had to close the gap between my goal and my excuses! :) No more excuses. Now I'll have a treadmill. Although, I have to admit that I'm excited about the set up; I have a TV/DVD combo set up, with my Netflix live streaming ready to go. Yep, no more sharing the televisions with about ten to twenty other people. Who needs sharing at the gym? Okay, so it's not that bad, but I am pretty excited about the new set up.
Now. To read, or not to read. I thought that Thanksgiving would be a great time to kick back and do some reading, but the way I see it now, I doubt that is going to happen. Honestly, I'm okay with it. We are having a great family holiday this year with a group of my extended family, just like when I was little. Although not everyone will be there, it still has me so excited to hang out with everyone that I can hardly stand it! Having said that, reading will have to wait. I'm ready to play card games, sit around and chat, and eat our way to a food coma. Can't. Wait. Although, I always forget the football games. Maybe I'll take a book or two with me so I can read during the games?
With all the Thanksgiving stuff this next week, do you think you'll be able to squeeze in some reading time?
