This week has been busy – it definitely didn’t feel like a four day weekend. What with Thanksgiving, then decorating all day on Friday, then game night at the honeyman’s mom’s house last night. FYI, I beat everyone in Monopoly (cue evil laugh), but we didn’t get home until about midnight. We’ve decided today is a don’t-leave-the-house kind of day… but I am slightly tempted to go to the gym. I actually went to the gym on Friday & Saturday, and it feels great but man my legs are tired and achy right now. I’m going to try to go several times a week… hopefully work doesn’t completely ruin that plan.
In other way more exciting news – my little sister got offered a federal job she’s been aiming for! But on the down side, it means she’s moving to Maine right after Christmas, & then she’ll be going away somewhere else for training for 5 months, right around the time Treland will be away for basic. Aaaand the rest of the family and I will watch my nephew while she’s away, we’ll figure that all out soon. But congrats to my little sis, she’s been working really hard for this 🙂
I’ve started my Harry Potter re-reads – I’m halfway through the second book now, and I’ll probably finish that today. Being able to read it on my phone & Paperwhite is basically awesome. Harry Potter at the gym, Harry Potter on the couch, Harry Potter in bed – Harry Potter everywhere!
I’m also reading the Age of Ultron right now, and it is so insane. There are SO many characters that I’ve had to look up as I’m reading, and so much is happening, but it’s fun. And I’m going to enjoy being that annoying person pointing out the differences between the comics and the movie 😉
I’m thinking about 2015 goals already… whether or not I want to continue doing monthly TBRs (probably), how I want to blog more and better, and keeping better stats. That, of course, led me to decide to combine my yearly spreadsheets (starting at 2011) into one master reading stats spreadsheet, and to go back and fill in all of the info for the columns I wasn’t previously tracking, like author name, gender, race, etc… Only about 400 more lines to fill in. Once that’s complete, I may upload it to GoogleDocs… I just then have to get more comfortable with GoogleDocs, especially on my phone.
Looking at my 2014 goals… I failed miserably. In all fairness, I was in a different position at work when I made that list. In February is when I moved into my current position, which has involved basically zero down time and working sometimes 65 hours a week. So I don’t feel TOO bad about it, but damn. The only things on that list I managed to accomplish was to get new running shoes and do another 5K. Maybe I can make a frittata in the next month. Or a quiche. Quiche is SO delicious.
And on that note, I’m hungry and I’m going to go eat an apple or something. I hope everyone’s enjoying their weekend!
