2. The Maze Runner. After Harry Potter, Twilight, & The Hunger Games, I was looking for something else to dive into. I so love a good trilogy or series. When it's just one book and then it's over, I feel sad! I've read on a number of blogs (of course, where else would I read it) that The Maze Runner trilogy is quite popular. Also young adult fiction, shocking! I dove in. So far I'm intrigued, I'm loving it. According to my Kindle, I'm 30% into the book, haha, I've grown to love the percentage. Depending on what time I'm getting to bed, I let myself read a certain number of chapters. Last night it was already really late, so I decided on one chapter. So I get to the end of chapter 16, I'm tense, the walls of the Glade are closing on the Maze and Thomas is faced with a decision! He looks out of the sliding stone wall doors and sees Minho carrying Alby who is injured. Slowly. They aren't going to make it into the Glade before the doors close and they will be trapped all night in the Maze with the Grievers! Other Gladers are yelling at Thomas not do do it but Thomas can't help himself. He runs out of the Glade into the Maze and the doors slam shut behind him. End of chapter. Noooooo!!! How will I wait till tomorrow to know what happens!! I wanted to stay up but knew it was already way too late and I'd been doing that all this very long week. And now I know you want to read the Maze Runner too.
3. I've been thinking that I want and NEED to start exercising again (still no bouncing allowed). So I'm going to start with walking. I was going to give myself a little 5K per day challenge but I know that some days, I won't actually have time for 5K. Like Tuesdays. No time. Then I figured maybe I would do a weekly total so that it doesn't matter if I walk 7K a few times or manage 5K every day. So I'm thinking 30K per week is a nice place to start until I'm allowed to do more. I was going to start today but it's -31 C. For the Americans, that's - 24F, so I decided to wait until this painful, stinging cold lets up. That's supposed to be Sunday. I'm actually okay with -31. I trained all winter outside for the half-marathon I did in the winter. It's the wind chill that gets me. I don't like to feel my face burning from cold. So Sunday, I walk. And eventually, I will run.
And now it is time to put on the pj's, turn on the fireplace, make some hot chocolate, and refresh my Walking Dead memory in time for Sunday's new episode.
