Boring week

Well, here it is Friday already! It has been a big fat dud of a diet/exercise week, once again. Last week it was the kiddo and her cold (and a lot of other excuses that I can't remember right now!) and now this week I'm not feeling so hot. When I'm not feeling hot I tend to remain motionless for long periods of time, only interrupted by fast and furious binges of junk food. Bad combo, to say the least!

(Random change of subject)

So, I have a book from the library that I really want to read, but there's some yuck smeared on the pages about 1/4th of the way through the book. It's bringing out the crazy germ-a-phobe in me. Honestly, I hate having to read library books...I always wonder if the last borrower used it as bathroom reading material...but buying books for me to read on our budget just isn't possible. Hubby's been hinting at one day buying me an e-reader, but I've heard that the books aren't really that much cheaper that way, in some cases even more expensive! So, nasty library books, it is. Ugh.

Well, I'm racking my brain looking for something to talk about, but frankly I haven't left the house since Sunday (except for being a taxi for my daughter) and life within these walls is pretty dull most days. This week has had mostly identical days: do schoolwork in the morning and for most of the afternoon, play some Scattergories, watch Say yes to the Dress, argue a bit (we are getting cabin fever, I think, because we are both a tad grumpy these days!), eat food we shouldn't be, play some more Scattergories, and head to bed! Not a whole lot of bloggy material happening. ;-)

So, I guess I'm off to play some Scattergories! Hope you all have a wonderful, warm, and family-filled weekend! :)


  1. Well, I don't know that this will ease your mind at all, but I'm pretty sure germs can't live for very long on the dry old pages of library books. Rather, they tend to thrive on moist, warm surfaces. You could always just Germ-X your hands afterwards if it'll make you feel better;0)

    Not much going on here lately either. The kiddo's got a cold. Hubby seems to be coming down with it too now (they like to share). The one item of "news" in our house is that we're going back to our old online school. That's about all...

  2. Hahahahaha. I am right there with you about the library books. I love to read and can't afford a lot of books so to the library we go. My hubby did get me a nook for our anniversary last year and I love it, but the books are still around 5.99. Sometimes you can get some on sale. New releases are around 12 or sometimes more. So yes, the aren't much cheaper. However, there are two libraries that I know of that you can borrow ebooks from. However you have to wait for-ev-er to get one. :)
