I have been a member of the same book club for 17 years now - they are the neatest bunch of ladies! We meet every other month or so because we need to allow quite a bit of time to finish a book. We all work full-time and finding time to read can be a challenge.
When we do meet, though, there is much joy & revelry :-) Joy & revelry is just a code phrase for "I eat and drink a pretty fair amount", which itself is code for "wow, I went over my calories for the day - AGAIN!"
Most of the time, Book Club is my only wayyyy over-calorie event, but the timing of book club in the tricky holiday season, when I'm already feeling pudgy, is a recipe for trouble.
But it's done, and it's tracked, and I have a date with Jillian Michaels this afternoon to sweat some of those deviled eggs out of my system!
The selection for next Book Club is Barbara Kingsolver's "Flight Behavior". The first book we ever read together was her "The Bean Trees", so I'm looking forward to reading her latest.
Book Club = late nights, so I am dragging butt today. Hopefully, if I nod off at my desk at work, I won't drool into my keyboard and short something out!
Have a great Thursday :-)
