Wow. So, in the last 3 days, I have read 2 books, traveled to Columbus, and I've already exercised this morning. It's amazing what cutting out tv can free me to do. I have seen some basketball and news between Chris and my parents watching, but that's pretty much it. Oh, and I suppose my mom was flipping to watch American Idol last night, too. But so far, no problem sticking to it.
READ THIS BOOK. I loved it and flew through it. This is a very sweet, true story about a woman who adopts an eyeless kitten who proves to be even more adventurous and rambunctious that the standard, seeing cat. He scares off burglars, survives 9-11, and many other adventures. Even if you're not a cat person, you'd probably enjoy it. Monster may have gotten some extra love while reading it, though.
I decided to read this book because I thought that maybe just having a list to work through while I'm churning through reading material would work well. I chose "The 100 Best Books of the Decade" according to the Sunday Times. This may be a little UK biased because of the source, but seemingly a good list. I actually surprised myself when I loved this book! I inwardly groaned when I saw it was an Oprah's Book Club book. I don't tend to choose particularly mushy, women-oriented books, and that's what I feared I was getting. Nope! Much more up my alley. This is a post-apolyptic book about a father and son trying to survive as they travel across the desolate country. Highly recommended.
Ok, I walked on a treadmill, went to a weight lifting class, and now am about to head out to get a pedicure (yay!) so I've got to run and make this shorter than it could be. I am so excited, seeing as I can no longer reach my toes on my own.
