Meyer Monday [4]

Posted on January 25, 2010

Well… here’s the thing.  I have not taken one single personal photograph this week… whatsoever.  I am in shock, but that’s the truth!  So rather than try to scrounge one up, worthy of blogging… I’m going to let you in on what I’ve been up to this week that does NOT involve photography!  haha!

1.  I am truly, without a doubt, addicted to Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series… thanks to my sister.  Can’t put ‘em down, and since I have six of them here waiting to be read… calling my name in fact, I just have to cave and keep ploughing through them.  The truth is, I really don’t want them to end.  I know that the faster I finish them, the sooner I will no longer have any Stephanie Plum humor to immerse myself in… but I still can’t help myself.  Plum is a young bounty hunter who really has no clue what she’s doing, ends up in a mess of sorts every time she tries to make a capture, has the affection of two hot men, an ex-prostitute for a best friend, the craziest “pip” of a grandmother and just the funniest, most outrageous adventures!  If you haven’t read or even heard of these books… you must look into them!  Hilarious and suspenseful!  Janet Evanovich is an amazing author, no doubt about it.  Ok, so that takes up about 80% of my time that I’m not playing with my three year old, which brings me to… number 2.

2.  On our last visit to the local library (last Tuesday), my daughter picked out a few books and decided that she would finally let Mommy pick out the DVD for the week.  I was pretty excited since we always end up watching the usual Little Bear, Franklin or Diego movie daily for at LEAST five days when she chooses!  So I chose the classic Disney’s Robin Hood, knowing she’d never pick it on her own, and thinking she’d really get a kick out of it.  Boy, was that an understatement!  Knowing it has to go back tomorrow, we have not only watched it at LEAST once, sometimes twice a day since then… but have also “acted” it all out on a daily basis.  Oh yeah.  Guess who got to be Maid Marion?  That’d be me.  (With the exception of Gramma Rose, who started the whole “Maid Marion has to wear an apron on her head to look realistic” trend around here… thanks Mom by the way… sheesh!)  Oh, did I mention the movie has to be returned tomorrow?  awww… :)   Seriously, it was great the first three times… but I think we need to take a break for awhile, sorry Robin Hood.

3.  I have taken up running.  OK, you can stop laughing now… those of you who really know me might think I’m joking, but I’m totally serious.  I have been wanting to start for quite sometime now and didn’t know how to go about it.  I know the obvious answer is to strap on some running shoes and give ‘er, but clearly that wasn’t happening around here.  One of my best friends, who lives in Phoenix, has become a marathon runner and I am SO proud of her!  She really got me motivated when she told me how she was down to a size two… wowee!  And seeing photos of her crossing the finish line is also very motivating… how awesome is that?!  Now, I’m not saying that I’ll be running a marathon anyday soon, or maybe ever.  All I know is that I bought myself a treadmill a few weeks ago, and I’ve been on it everyday since… following the “Couch to 5K” plan… baby steps.  Lovin’ it!!! 

So that’s what I’ve been up to this week!  I’m going to grab the camera this time around and make sure you have something interesting to look at next Monday  :)   See you then!
