Life Going On

Song Lyric of the Day:

The rain is fallin’ on my window pane / But we are hidin’ in a safer place / Under covers stayin’ dry and warm / You give me feelins that I adore

Colbie Caillat / “Bubbly

It rained all day today. It was one of those days where I just wanted to stay in bed, alternating between sleeping and reading*. Alas, that was not to be since I have to make a living. Work’s good, although it’s been kicking my butt again. But I’m really fortunate in that I’ve gotten to learn and dabble in a bunch of different things the last few weeks: country music news, HTML coding, travel guides, cocktails. Keeps everything interesting.

Even though I’m exhausted most nights, I’ve stepped up my exercise routine. Have to lose a few more pounds so I feel Uruguay-ready (vacation is only weeks away!), specifically Uruguay beach-ready. (In case you’re wondering, I’ve lost 5.6 pounds in the last month or so, starting with when I got sick. That was a 3-pound handicap right there.)

So other than work and exercise, not a whole lot’s going on right now. Which is just fine by me — more time to write, read, and relax.

*I’m currently reading False Memory by Dean Koontz, Bright Lights, Big Ass by Jen Lancaster, and The Big Over Easy by Jasper Fforde.

    i’m always amazed by people reading more than one book at a time. i couldn’t do that. how does it work? i think my brain can only hold and remember so much information and apparently that’s just enough to keep up with the story of one book at a time 😉

    Not a lot going on with me, either, which is really nice after having such craziness over the holidays.

    I recently read The Eyre Affair, and really enjoyed it. I just finished Atonement, and am about to start An Omnivore’s Dilemma.

    Kim — I have to read the books in different settings to keep them straight. I read Bright Lights, Big Ass at lunchtime, False Memory when I’m doing cardio or at bedtime, and The Big Over Easy when I need something different. Which is why it will take me longer to finish.
