Thankfully Done

Canadian Thanksgiving was this weekend and we hosted so I was a touch busy doing my Fall cleaning. Spring cleaning rarely happens as the pool seems to call very early.

This year, I dove into the pool for the last time on the Labour Day weekend. It's been an odd fall and not getting to swim again may come back to bite me in the arse.

Last year at this time I started walking on the treadmill to keep myself active during the winter months - little did I know the summer this year was going to be the killer. Backward couch potato.

So plans for the treadmill are on high for this week - I got on last week and the sweat pouring off me was something else. But I know I have to get back into it and get healthier. Now that the house is almost back to rights, I feel like I have more time.

Luckily I seem to have survived the plague that came to the house - poor Aunt went from sounding fine Saturday afternoon to sounding way too sick by Saturday evening. I'm taking my vitamins and cleaning up my hands enough to hopefully keep everything at bay. I didn't feel great on Sunday but I think I was just wore out.

On the agenda the past week was work on the Top 100 Romance Book poll for AAR. I have been doing some HTML and I'm trying to learn about php files. So that took up some time this past week and will continue on into this week and then once the poll starts I'll be counting up ballots.

So if you visit AAR or just want to play with your books and try to sort them from the mostest favourite to the next mostest favourite then you have some extra time. We're hoping the ballot goes live on Friday and the polling will end on the 14th of November.

As to life, Gorgeous Cousin is now looking pregnant and I keep thinking how February will be here before we know it. I'm very excited and I know GC is too.

Before that though there are more than a few birthdays and of course, my Achilles heel, Christmas.

But Bob should be off on vacation next week so I'm thinking we can knock most of the gifts off the list and maybe I'll even wrap stuff up so I won't feel over exposed in December.

And books. I really want to read more books.

Wonder if I can find time for that this week?

Okay, off to watch some TV.

It's not even Halloween yet, and already I'm thinking that before we know it, we'll be ringing in 2011. This year has shot right by me!

I hope your holiday was a decent one. Thanksgiving is one of my favorites, but this year - like last - I won't be cooking the holiday dinner on the actual holiday itself, but the weekend after, due to work schedule. Can't wait!

I know right? I keep getting floored by the fact it's 2010 - I keep wondering where the 2000's went.

And this next month is going to fly by for you - can't wait to see pics of the wedding!

Happy belated Thanksgiving, Cindy!! :P LOL, I know how you feel about the cleaning to host...

So, how's the treadmill's going? Any destruction envy towards it? :P

Drink a lot of fluids, that should help keeping it at bay and don't over-exert yourself. Being tired is like asking to be sick :(

And cool about your Gorgeous Cousin looking pregnant :P

Nath - I'm ignoring the treadmill this week (Bad Cindy) but I should get on the damn thing tomorrow night. And then I'll just have to deal with it every night.

Gah, I've been exhausted all week and have taken cold meds to stave off any problems.
