Taking a Break

No workout tonight – busy doing other things.  Just thought I’d take a quick break and let you know I probably won’t be posting for the next week or so.  Around here, it’s February Break, so I’m taking a break from school AND blogging – but not from working out.  Along with some strength and cardio sessions, I also have a stack of books I want to get through, including:

  • One Fine Day
  • Little Bee
  • The Historian
  • Thank You for Smoking
  • Day by Day Armageddon

Looking forward to relaxing, catching up on my sleep, playing with my kids, and hanging out with my husband (who’s back tomorrow – yay!).  I’ll also be visiting with my parents, brother, and some other family members – when I’m not feeling too anti-social.  As an introvert, I often find it hard to chat with people who aren’t close family members.  My immediate family is okay with my sitting there like a lump, not making conversation.  Since most of them (except my brother) are pretty introverted, they get it.  I’m not the type to get energy from spending time with people; I’d much rather spend time in a low-key way.  I guess that’s the definition of an introvert.

What’s on your reading list these days?  Do you consider yourself an introvert or an extrovert?

    I am joining in on the homework this long weekend…taking two classes one for the entire semester and one as a week long intensive. So reading is homework right now, but as long as a story can grab my attention right away and keep it I am good…which can be hard.
    Oh yeah I am a total extrovert…I get my energy from external sources, which can be crazy at times!
    Enjoy your break Jo you so deserve it!!!

    Lady, you have quite the list – I’m getting ready to read Maira Kalman’s The Pursuit of Happiness and The Mermaid’s Tale by Sue Monk Kidd (a la the Secret Life of Bees). I can’t wait!
