I read to cope. I read for a lot of reasons, but the most important reasons in recent years has been for the escape.
Reading is my favorite way to travel. No packing, no layovers, no getting lost and terrified of being eaten alive by USA haters and absolutely no need of a flux capacitor or plutonium to get that all-important 1.21 gigawatts.
Counting to 10 with deep breaths doesn’t do squat. Neither does the bottom of a chip bag or a bottle/glass of booze.
Ah, the life of a nerd. For virtually nothing (public libraries, holla!), I’m swept away to somewhere far, far away from any given stress of my day.
This is why I read a lot of YA. This is why I love historic fiction. Take me away. Far, far away. Let me forget, regroup and come back to reality fresh and ready for the next round.
I’m about to start my 12th new book of 2012 – never thought I’d get this far even though it isn’t that impressive. I used to blog about each book I read, but my free time has whittled away to allow only quick reviews or even just star ratings on my Goodreads account. If you’re interested in checking out what I’ve read and my reviews, spy on my Goodreads list. I also keep track of what I’m hunting down next. I’m a list-loving nerd, yes I am!
Those Mizunos ended up being medieval torture devices, so I returned them & got myself a pair of a Brooks. C25K run tonight with a local group. Two thumbs up!
Dragon or dinosaur? If it's a dinosaur, what kind? Dr. Ross Geller would know. Or maybe Charlie Weasley.
My lap is a reading nook. My chin is a footrest. Love is crazy.
Rapture! (Or bath time.)
I hit the flat greenway for my new shoes' inaugural 2 miles. My first mile was 9:57!
Happy canker work season, Charlotte.
I ran somewhere new today - the wicked hilly trails at Reedy Creek. Well, I "ran." The hills kicked my butt!
Happy group play without arguments or territory invasion - lasted approx. 6 minutes. #triplets
My body goals for 6 months of pregnancy & 2.5 years of #breastfeeding (when my 1st weaned) were focused on providing for my #triplets. Eating enough wasn't easy, so I didn't start scaling back or exercising until they were close to 2.5 years old. A year l
"I just want a leeeetle tiiiiiny piece of toast. Like this." The 3 y/o appetite is requesting a crumb.
OH, YEAH. You want summa dis? It's Alton Brown's Brussels sprouts wit pecans & cranberries. We'll see if Callista sings her #brusselsfroutsallday song. I know I am!
A penny per ride is a steal, but x3 means spending a long time hanging out in front of Harris Teeter. Good news, @baballance, ETC can now spell H-A-R-R-Y!
Yes, it's a gym selfie. Why? Because I'm celebrating! We started our 7-day trial at the Y today. ETC had a great time, & I ... Did things. 1.5 mi (half-assed, waiting for a problem with ETC) on the treadmill at the end of Gilmore Girls, then I investigate
Boom. 2 miles. Just me, my taser/flashlight, & the night/springtime creatures.
The greenway is getting GREEN! Yay, Spring!
Wishes! ✨ #tripletmom
It's a gloomy, rainy day outside, but it's bright & cheerful in the rec center!
I asked ETC to stop chasing each other & wait by the door so no one got hurt & we could FINALLY leave the house. This was how they interpreted my direction. Goofballs.
I need a new makeup bag, but I am 1. a terrible packer & 2. clueless to most things in the beauty world. This is my regular lineup. What kind of bag/container should I get?
ETC requested strawberry pancakes like Daniel Tiger has. It's been a loooong time since I made pancakes. The waffle iron is more forgiving of a shaky, uncoordinated hand.
