No News...

Short and sweet.

Doing the polls with LinnieGayl and Lee for the Top 100 Favorite Romance books and that is some serious work. We have a spreadsheet with over 3500 titles on it and I'm still adding in new lines with every ballot. And since I'm a little crazy when it comes to working with Excel I take my time and at the moment I'm very, very behind. Not that I'm complaining - just explaining why I'm not really around right now and will continue to not be so around until late November.

I've read nothing - read above paragraph.

I want to read everything. Okay, that should say 're-read everything' because I'm wondering about my own ballot and if I will leave some titles off because it's been years since I read the book. I mean, does it hold up? I'm not sure, so I'm hoping I can get a list done up soon but again, read the first paragraph.

My anxiety is fairly under control but I haven't finished our Christmas shopping which always causes extra beats for my heart. Ugh.

The swinging sister to anxiety is depression. I'm not super depressed but I know I'm not myself. I need to get on the treadmill and start working out every day. Last year I was on it in October - it's looking like November will be the start time for me.

And damn, I hate to even talk about it but I need to diet for real. I keep saying I'm not ready. But there will be a baby here in February and I want to be fit enough to play with the cutie. And fitting into smaller clothes would be a bonus.

So yeah, lots to do with nothing getting done.

Hope you are fairing better than I am!

Glad to hear from you Cindy. I really admire you and the girls for doing the poll every year. I mean, talk about time-consuming work!

LOL, you'll get your Christmas shopping done in time. I have faith in you :P

Getting fitter, sigh, the ongoing battle. I'm in the same boat as you for that one.

Luckily we only do the top 100 every three years. The annual poll however will be in the new year also so yes, more busy than normal

Right now it's the birthdays that are killing me - same tune, different verse.

I got on the treadmill last night and made it 30 minutes. Just about killed me. Why did I stop!? Used to do an hour with energy to burn. Bah.
