Just a Day Late

Sorry for my absence yesterday! Deaner was feeling a bit under the weather and decided to stay home from work for the day. It completely threw me off my normal Monday routine and I had to keep reminding him yesterday that I was "all out of sorts"! He got quite a kick out of that. So, it was nice to have a long weekend. Especially since he is heading to England tomorrow and I will be alone tomorrow night. We had a pretty good weekend. Friday night we tried a new restaurant out and liked it. I obviously wasn't thinking when I ate tomato soup and then spaghetti for dinner and I was chewing the Tums for the rest of the night. Saturday we ran some errands and had dinner at my favorite restaurant, Vapiano. It was nice being out of the house. We are getting so close now to Day Light Savings time and I can't wait to have the extra hours of sun in the day. Better yet, I'm ready for it to warm up some. My legs haven't been this pale in a LONG time.

Today I have gotten back into my routine a little bit. The house is clean and dinner is on the stove. I ran to the commissary and met Deaner for lunch. Now I am relaxing on the couch and about to start reading my new book. Has anyone read the book A Girl Named Zippy by Haven Kimmel? I read it a few years back after I ran out of every other book I owned and it was the last one I had that I had not read. I don't know what took me so long because it was truly one of the funniest books that I have ever read. I laughed through the entire book and if I had not returned it to my mom, I would read it again. I was super excited to find out (from reading another blog!) that there was a sequel to A Girl Named Zippy called She Got Up Off the Couch. It took me awhile to get my act together and get it ordered but it came last week and I started it last night. I was already laughing in the Preface. Can't wait to get further into it!

Speaking of ordering new books. If you haven't signed up for Ebates now is the time! In the past week I have accrued $30 in cash back from internet orders! $10.40 of that was from ONE order from Barnes & Noble. Definitely worth it. And you get $5 in your account just for signing up! Thanks to all the readers that have already signed up! Your reward is coming, I promise! :)

I'm off to read now. Deaner is picking up his skiis after work today for our ski jaunt this weekend and I hope he picks up the pace as I am sure I will be ready to eat! :) The above picture was taken at the Zugspitz in Garmish, Germany. This is where we are heading this weekend for some skiing. I hope Deaner doesn't end up with any broken bones!! Happy Tuesday!

I will have to try out those books! I love funny books! I got a Kindle for Christmas and now I am trying to get a running list of good books to read. I will add those to the list!

I have been to the Zugspitz once. It is beautiful! Have fun this weekend!
