Can I keep this up?

Our company, as one of the benefits, sponsors one of those boot camp fitness programs at the office.  An instructor shows up at 5:15 three days a week, and whoever wants to go can go.  I decided to give it a try today.  All I do is run, and I haven’t been very good about incorporating any other sort of exercise into my routine on my own.  Anyway, it was hard, and it was hot, and I think I’m going to be sore tomorrow, but I also think I’m going to go back tomorrow and try again.  We’ll see.

I finished The Shell Seekers yesterday morning.  I really like Rosamunde Pilcher, but I think I’m going to have to space out her books.  That one made me cry twice.  And when I wasn’t crying, I was hating two of the characters.  I’m still kind of looking for what to read next.  I’m not quite ready to re-read The Time Traveler’s Wife, although that will probably be next, after whatever I choose now.  I picked up A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, by Dave Eggers, but I’m having a hard time getting into it.  John just finished it, and I think he liked it, but I was ready to give up on it about 100 pages in.  He gave me a hard time (just a little), so I’m still trying.  And it’s getting better, I think, but I’m not really involved in it.  I’m not hurrying to finish typing so I can get back to it or anything.  I should be hurrying so I can go throw away almost everything stored under the bathroom sink in the hall upstairs.  That stuff goes in the category of it’s-been-there-and-I-haven’t-used-it-since-we-moved-in-almost-four-years-ago-so-throw-it-away-already.  There’s a lot of stuff all over the house in that category.  But I may not get to that tonight.  Back to the subject of picking a new book.  I have several books that are the first in a series.  I deliberately only bought the first ones, thinking I’d try them out and if I like them, I’ll buy the rest.  But since I don’t have the rest yet, I’ve been putting off reading the first books.  What if I love them and I don’t have the others?  So I’ve backed myself into a corner.  Just read one of them!  It’s not like I don’t know where or how to get the next book quickly.
