How did I miss Monday?

Probably because it was one of "those" kind of days. The days when you don't even want to crawl out of bed, much less do anything else remotely close to being called work. So yesterday I did a lot of nothing, and not much else. I was tired. Oh so tired. Like the first 8 weeks of pregnancy tired. But rest assured, that is NOT happening in this body, not this month anyhow!

So Tomorrow the plan is, walmart at 7am *yeah you read that right* Tomorrow is snack day for lil dude, which means we send snacks for 18 hungry kindergarteners. I was considering making cinnamon rolls, however its 1030 pm and I don't have it in me. Maybe in March LOL. So its Walmart, drop lil dude and snacks off at the school, head to my school, cram a workout in there somewhere and possibly a trip to the post office as well.

I also need to find a library that has a specific book... what book? The one the book club on SOTH  is planning on reading. Im thinking I can cram an hour of reading a day in, while sitting on the exercise bike at the gym!

The Doomsday Book by Connie Willis

Kivrin, a history student at Oxford in 2048, travels back in time to a 14th-century English village, despite a host of misgivings on the part of her unofficial tutor. When the technician responsible for the procedure falls prey to a 21st-century epidemic, he accidentally sends Kivrin back not to 1320 but to 1348--right into the path of the Black Death. Unaware at first of the error, Kivrin becomes deeply involved in the life of the family that takes her in. But before long she learns the truth and comes face to face with the horrible, unending suffering of the plague that would wipe out half the population of Europe. Meanwhile, back in the future, modern science shows itself infinitely superior in its response to epidemics, but human nature evidences no similar evolution, and scapegoating is still alive and well in a campaign against "infected foreigners."p. 204 This book finds villains and heroes in all ages, and love, too, which Kivrin hears in the revealing and quietly touching deathbed confession of a village priest.

Sound interesting? I didnt think so but it was voted on, majority rules!
