Hello and happy Thursday! I am linking up with Bookish (and Not So Bookish Thoughts) over at Bookishly Boisterous.
1.) UGH. I just started the next level of my Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30 DVD and I hate it! It's really hard and some of the moves feel impossible for an uncoordinated person like myself. I try my hardest but it's a good thing nobody can see me because I'm sure I look ridiculous.
2.) I've been reading a lot of WWII era historical fiction lately and while I love it, I think I'm going to have to take a break from it. I need to find something really cheerful to read for a change. Suggestions are welcome!
3.) My mom is visiting this weekend so I've been doing a lot of extra cleaning around the house. I really wish I wasn't the kind of person who cares about having a clean house because I just don't want to do it anymore. I used to really like cleaning but now it just feels like one more thing I have to make time for.
4.) My husband is now working a normal day shift which is glorious. He can now help with bedtime so we are taking turns and it is a beautiful thing. I've been in charge of bedtime for like 99% of the last three years and it's so nice to have a break!
5.) I bought Ron Chernow's biography of Alexander Hamilton and while I'm eager to read it, I am a little intimidated by the size. I'm not sure I'm ready to commit to such a huge book right now.
6.) We've been following a 'no spend' month for July and it's going really well. I plan to post more about it later but I'm really hoping we can keep up the momentum for the rest of the year.
I hope you all have a great rest of the week!
