Last night I enjoyed a wild night out… at the library! Party on you crazies! Since I finished my book Monday night, I was really excited and anxious to start a new book. Sadly, since my library isn’t too big, several of the books I’m dying to read aren’t in. Several of these included Gone Girl, Skinny Dipping (ugh I LOVE Bethenny Frankel), and several other Paleo books. I really don’t like buying books at the store since usually I will only read it once, so I tend to stick to borrowing books from the library. Don’t get me wrong, I love browsing Barnes & Noble and wish I had the pocket change to drop bombs in the Noble, but it makes more sense for me to spend that $12-15 on other things… like clothes. 😉
I had made a list of books in the library I was interested in, and was going to narrow my list down once I was able to read the full book description, but instead, I came across a gem in the very last aisle. I present to you, Lime Ricky, by Jill Winters. It encompasses several of my favorite things. New York City, a hot
man FIREMAN, and most of all, it’s a chick flick. This girl adores romantic comedies.. books or movies, I’m not picky. 😉
After reading the first 2 chapters in bed last night, I was hooked, but also falling asleep. By 9:30, (grandma!) I was dozing off, and decided to call it a night. I can’t wait to dig into it a little deeper tonight and truly immerse myself into it.
This morning I woke up feeling much better than yesterday. I busted out a 3.6 mile run and had plenty of time to get some other moves in. On a weekday morning, I consider “plenty of time” to be 10 minutes. I’m on a strict schedule. Alarm goes off at 5:35, I take 2 hits of my inhaler, ha!, hit snooze, up like a psycho at 5:42, then brush mah chompers, wash my face, get dressed and use the loo, and hopefully by 6:05 I’m taking my first step on my run. I like to be back on the living room floor by 6:50, but sometimes it’s 6:52, and stretch/work the core until 7:04 at the latest. Then it’s time to shower and get ready for work. If I’m out the door any later than 7:42, I panick. On a good day, I’m out by 7:38.
