finale tonight

so last night was my book club. it was alright—only three people showed up which is kind of a bummer. i really make an effort to read the book and come to the book club night and it bothers me that some people don't. i understand that *some people* may have busier lives than moi, but still. i am kind of a loner so i tend not to make that many commitments.

yesterday i started reading sisters, and i am already 3/4 done. it's good. not a romance novel, instead a nice story about four sisters who have to deal with a family tragedy. nice and light. for those of you who haven't read any danielle steel... don't make assumptions based on what you have heard. they aren't all seedy romance novels. my favourite book of all time is called jewels by danielle steel. i have read it at least ten times. oh i love epic family sagas. did anyone read this when they were young?

today is wednesday but it's not date night. my boyfriend is away for the week - at camp (with cabins, not tents) with his students. but tonight is the antm season finale. who is excited? i am!

this morning i woke up early and did the anti-boredom workout again in the gym. i really don't like the elliptical machine, but it's only ten minutes so i pushed through it. i burned more calories than last time i did the same workout. maybe i have to push myself harder in the morning? who knows. it will forever remain a mystery to me.

on the menu today is:

yogurt with berries

1.5 oatmeal packets with flax, pumpkin, 1/2 banana, 5 blackberries

more yogurt with strawberries this time

some sort of veg
maybe a spinach salad - yes, that sounds nice. something else later too. maybe more yogurt - i love yogurt. oh, yesterday i bought plain (not flavoured) 1% mf yogurt. it's more filling that fat free yogurt, and thicker. and so bitter tasting. tart... i love it. yog it up.

I really like these books by Penny vincenzi - they are a really light read, beach reading for sure. They follow a family in throught 3 books.

I am excited for the finale as well! I read some book by danielle steele that was awesome but I forget the name. Something about 4 different couples going through crazy things. One lady had cancer and hid it from everyone. I read it in middle school though so don't remember all the details.

Anyway, have a great day, and have fun tonight!

I'm excited too!!

Yeah, those are the books! They were really good. That is too funny about our book tastes, they are identical! That is good news for me, I will just keep picking up the books that you have said were good.

I loved Sweet Valley High. It's what got me into reading. Then remember the Flowers in the Attic series? That was my 2nd fav.

OOH I can't wait to see the finale!!!

I haven't read that book by Danielle Steel now...but I might!! One of my favorite books of all time is "The First Time" by Joy Fielding (she usually writes murder mysteries/suspense) and this one was completely out of left field, had me bawling like a baby!!! (and my other fave is Jurassic Park...but yeah, don't judge me!)

I lived on Sweet Valley High when I was young! My Grandma would buy me a big stack of them for my birthdays and Xmas. Loved them!!

I would love to join a book club, always wanted to, I need to look into how to go about getting it done, I use to read a lot of Danielle Steel but haven't for a long time, thanks for the review!

personally I find that I'm hit and miss with right out of bed workouts, sometimes they are great, sometimes I just don't have the oomppph I wanted..
