Hello friends! I woke up to a steady rain this morning and it was honestly really nice. Am I the only one who enjoys laying in bed listening to rain? I laid in bed a bit to enjoy the rain before getting up. It’s supposed to rain most of the day but I have my fingers crossed it’ll stop before I get off work so I can get a good run in. Have a great day 🙂
Wednesday started out similar to Monday. We made bacon and eggs again for breakfast. There’s something about bacon on a weekday that feels like a luxury in a sense. Growing up I used to only have bacon on weekends if my Dad would make a big breakfast so having it during the week feels like fun. Plus it’s halfway through the week so why not celebrate it with bacon 😉
Work was pretty good! It was one of those days where I felt like I kept crossing thing off my to do list even though I was adding things to it as well. During lunch, I kept reading Ten Thousand Saints. I made good progress and was kind of glad it was grey and raining on and off so I had an excuse to be able to sit and read after work.
When I was driving home, apparently Alex passed me and decided we were going to race. Well I didn’t know that until I was on my normal route so I couldn’t even try to beat him. Spoiler alert: Alex won. Bailey and I played while Alex finished up a work call then we went for a little walk. Walk may be generous since it was still kind of drizzling so we went outside to have her go to the bathroom, said hello to the kids playing near the park who were pumped to see her then walked to the dumpster to throw a bag away. At least we got outside in between the rain!
Once we got inside, I grabbed my Nook and water bottle then settled in on the couch. I was determined to finish the book since I had under 100 pages left. This book is one I can’t decide if I like or dislike. As weird as that may sound, I think it was the plot. Jude and Teddy are best friends in 1987 and Teddy dies of an overdoes on New Year’s Eve. Jude goes from one extreme of drinking and drugs to the other in the span of a few months. Then Teddy gets someone pregnant even though they just met and were alone for an hour so there’s that part of the plot. It was good, don’t get me wrong I just don’t know if I’ll run around recommending it to people.
Since I accomplished my goal for the night, I was ready to get dinner started. Tacos was an Alex requested meal and I’ll never say no to a taco. Funny story though, a few weeks ago I bought what I thought was a pack of ground turkey but may have actually been ground pork. I know that sounds ridiculous because how could you not know but I think they were right next to each other and I wasn’t paying attention. So we don’t actually know what meat we had last night but it was good none the less! I loaded up my tacos and was shocked they didn’t fall apart when I tried to eat them.
We watched an episode of Billions after dinner. If you have access to Showtime then I highly recommend this show. It’s drama but not unrealistic drama. Okay maybe it’s a little unrealistic but I’m not worth $10 billion dollars like one of the characters in the show. A girl can dream right?! After the episode we read a bit before getting ready for bed.
Question of the day: Have you ever read a book and not been able to decide if you liked or disliked it?
