Reading has been slow this month. I haven't really been able to fall into a book like I usually do, and I'm feeling like I'm in a bit of a rut. I've fallen into a comfort read of a little Sherlock Holmes here and there. I'm continuing to read A Wrinkle in Time with my kids before the movie is released. And, I'm currently listening to China Dolls by Lisa See every now and then. Even my audiobook time is taking a toll these days. Where did the days go that allowed me to read for extended periods of time without interruption, just to escape into another world? Life is just so busy these days!
Now for the second meaning . . . As I mentioned earlier, I took a pretty good fall while out cross country skiing at the beginning of the month. It left me quite sore, and I've been nursing my back for a couple of weeks now. This week, I finally felt like I was healing and even started working out again tonight. Then. Then things took a turn that I am not happy about. I wasn't paying attention while walking down my stairs tonight and fell. Down the stairs! Right on my back where I was previously hurting! My only thought while I was curled at the bottom of the stairs, my family bombarding me with questions about if I was okay . . . You have got to be kidding me!! So now, I lay in bed with heat on my back and pain relievers starting to work their magic. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I'm able to move tomorrow morning!
In other news, I went to Black Panther this last weekend. I went in with some pretty high expectations. I have been looking forward to this movie since I heard that it was coming out. My whole family was pretty pumped, and I must say that it lived up to my expectations and more. I am not usually one to see a movie more than once in the theaters, but I want to go back and see this movie again on the big screen. It was so good!! In the meantime, maybe I need to pick up a little Black Panther comics to tied me over until this reading rut is gone?! Actually, for tonight, I'm just gonna stick with my heat and pain relievers, and hope I fall asleep soon.
YOUR TURN: What are you reading these days? Wanna guess the one movie I have been to in the theaters more than once?
