Funny story of the day – I was scheduling a work meeting yesterday afternoon and totally scheduled it for Wednesday morning not realizing it WAS Wednesday.  I then stared at my Outlook calendar for a few seconds because I couldn’t believe the work week was half way over.  Say what?!

Anyways, let’s just get to my three random things for the week before I share more embarrassing stories!

3 Things Thursday Badge

(1) Vishnu’s parents and brother are visiting this weekend

Niel gets in tonight, and my in-laws get in tomorrow evening.  Unfortunately, Vishnu’s working 7a-7p both Saturday and Sunday.  We’ll make the most of their time here though, even when Vishnu’s at work!  Can’t wait to see them.

(2) This total body workout from Tone It Up kicked my butt.


I repeated this sequence three times through, and it felt like my heart was going to beat right out of my chest.  In a good way of course!

(3) 2015 Summer reading list update

I’m still reading The Poisonwood Bible, a book that wasn’t even on my original listAnd it’s taking me forever, I know.  The book is over 550 pages (dense pages I should say), and it didn’t really grab my attention until about 100 pages in.  I’m hoping it’ll be more of a page turner now that the story is going somewhere.

To be completely honest, I almost gave up on this book.  After confessing this to Vishnu (who insisted for almost 10 years that I read it in the first place), he knowingly nodded.  When I asked him how long it would take for something to happen, he said to wait until after page 300.  Then it gets really good he said.  Well, I’m at 110 and it’s getting better so here goes nothing.

And as far as that Summer reading list goes, it’s looking more like a Fall reading list now.

Well, that’s all I have today.  I’ll be back tomorrow with a VERY delicious recipe (involving chocolate!).

If you’re a blogger, write a post and link back to one or all of the hostesses: Raj from Pink Chai Living, Nisha from Love Laugh Mirch, or Salma from The Write Balance. Then share a link to your post (not your blog’s home page).

  1. Hard to believe summer is almost over and Labor Day weekend is this weekend. Sucks that V has to work! I hope you have an awesome weekend with your in-laws regardless! <3

  2. My reading pace has slowed down a bit too. I think it’s because I’ve been commuting less (yay!) and haven’t been reading anything particularly page turning. I’m not one of those people who gets super excited about Fall, but I have to say I’m looking forward to some cool nights cuddling under a blanket with a good book. I have to say I LOVED Poisonwood Bible, but it was kind of hard to get through at times. Since I read it for school, I guess I had no choice but to power through 🙂
    I hope you guys have a great time with Vishnu’s family!
