Monday Morning Madness #54: Spring Cleaning & Reading Outlander

I hope everyone had a good weekend. Here in the Missouri, the weather was pretty nice. The grass is now green once again, so if it doesn't unexpectedly snow again, I'll probably be mowing the yard sometime in April. Despite the warm weather, I'm going to wait a few weeks before I do any planting in the vegetable garden; just in case the temperatures does drop again.

If you follow my blog regularly, then you would know that I have anxiety issues. Well, I had to fight those issues to create my first video review last week for the ABX DVD. While I had no problems filming myself attempting to the do the workout for a highlight reel, it took me forever to record the actual review for it.

I've already started some spring cleaning this month by boxing up some Christian books that I no longer wanted to keep. My intention was to drop them off at Salvation Army, but I ended up giving them to an elderly lady who was thrilled to have the books. I already have another box full of books for her. I have two other boxes filled with non-Christian books that I plan on donating to Salvation Army, but it will have to wait until I finish going through all my books, which includes two closets.

Speaking of books, I'm taking a slight break from reviewing books, so I can do some personal reading. I squeezed in some time Saturday afternoon to read the first two chapters in Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. I hope to finish reading the novel, which is around 850 pages, before the television series returns on April 4th!

My To-Be-Read list keeps getting bigger. I still need to read read the last two Stephen King titles, dozens of James Patterson's mysteries, The Morganville Vampires series and countless other books. There are even a few titles that I want to reread, like the Harry Potter series, A Series Of Unfortunate Events by Daniel Handler, To Kill A Mockingbird, the Dark Tower series and many others. If you don't know who Handler is, well, he wrote under the name Lemony Snickett!

Anyway, hopefully I can read a few chapters of Outlander every morning, if I'm not too tired. I haven't been sleeping very good as of lately, mostly due to the fact that my mattress is horrible. I know that I should replace it every eight years, but I just can't afford a new mattress right now or in the immediate future. If there's any mattress company that is wanting a review done, I would be glad to review a mattress on here. I'll even make a video review of it, too.
