For today's Monday Maunder, we go straight to business . . .
I am still reading The Count of Monte Cristo as I type this. In fact, I am currently on page 1026 of 1462 pages. I am really enjoying this story, but I must tell you that the story is VERY detailed and I cannot wait to see how the story ends. Hopefully, by the time I maunder next week, this book will be complete!
I am also still listening to Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson. I am about half-way through this one and all I can say is this author has an amazing way of writing! She describes things in such an unique, yet beautiful way, even despite the topic.
Lastly, my son is loving Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone! We are almost at the end of Chapter 3, but he is requesting to read this book every chance we get. I love that he is asking questions, that I can give him a bit of hints of what is to come, and every conversation is accompanied by a twinkle in his eyes. I only hope that it continues!
This week, writing has been horrid! I am not even going to go into further detail!
Life has been busy this week, but in the little free time that I did have, I spent my time playing Words with Friends! Being a lover of words, I have become addicted to this game! It is so much fun!! BUT, I do need to find a way to spend more time writing my own words instead of just playing them!
On another note, I also have signed up with some friends to do a Biggest Loser Challenge. Today was my first day on my new menu plan, and it has already proven to be difficult. I don't like to go drastic, so I am just working on cutting back on the soda and carbs (less breads and pastas) and increasing the greens. I will also phase in an increased workout schedule (somewhere). I'm not sure how it is going to go, but I do know that I'm ready to get rid of this baby weight and more!
What are you reading this week? Did you have better luck in writing? How about life in general?
