This is one of those posts where instead of tackling a big event (say my daughter's ninth birthday perhaps) I list several random things that are rattling around in my head in the hopes I can clear out some of the clutter.
01.) I woke up early today and couldn't go back to sleep. This has been happening rather frequently. Again. Sometimes it frustrates me to no end and others it usually turns out to be a good thing (at least the getting up early part).
02.) Since I was up and all, I decided to go ahead and finish the last two lessons (for week one) in Kelly Minter's bible study on Nehemiah. The girls and I had done her studies on Ruth and No Other Gods (serious thumbs up on both) in the past and decided to start Nehemiah as our fall study. It's really good so far and I'm eager to learn more about Nehemiah's time and how his example relates to modern day.
03.) By the time I'd finished I'd decided I would go Ladies Bible Class after all (I'd been on the fence) since it was starting back up today after a break for summer (not that I went last year though). My one condition was that I had to fit my workout in before so that I'd be done and couldn't wimp out later.
04.) Speaking of workouts, I'm on a bit of a hiatus from Insanity right now since I finished the first 30 days (!!) before starting the second phase. You're supposed to take a week off and do something called Core Cardio and Balance for six days straight and it's probably wonderful but I wouldn't know because I've gone back to my TurboFire workouts.
I don't know how I feel about starting the second phase of Insanity. Part of me wants to try it but the other part really misses the fun (yet still challenging!) dance-y workouts of TurboFire (the music is the BEST) and adding in the occasional strength workout. I miss working out with weights or at least resistance bands and I think I see better results when I do use them with cardio.
05.) The good news is I did get my Turbo on, gobble a hard boiled egg and get myself together and make it to Ladies Bible Class. The bad news is I was late.
06.) I'm trying to use my big dog camera more. Again. (Even though this post can't verify that statement due to the absence of, you know, any photos.)
07.) I've been catching up with Project Life. Again. I don't recommend letting yourself get 5+ months behind but even more so I don't recommend quitting, so I'm determined to catch up.
08.) I'm currently in April. Sigh.
09.) Guess what? I decided (yesterday) to join in with Edie's Classical Online Book Club after all. I picked up my copy of The Odyssey yesterday and made it a whole three pages into the introduction before I fell asleep.
But it was late, so I'll give it another shot during daylight.
10.) I've also started reading Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin. I like it! But I'm a little intimidated about starting a four or five (or more?) epic book series and try to read The Odyssey at the same time.
But I shall persevere.
I think 10 makes for a good stopping point, don't you?
Yes. Yes it does.
Happy Wednesday, y'all!
