Three things for a Monday

1) I got heat in my apartment. After a cold weekend, this afternoon they got it working. Darned good thing I live in California and not somewhere really cold.

2) The change in gyms was lest costly than I thought it would be! Turns out the Y has a 30 day money back guarantee! So I got a $70 refund for the month of membership (though I still had to pay the initial $160 membership fee). Plus the new gym gave me three free weeks to make up for the Y, which comes out to about... $30-something dollars.

I'm going to go swimming there tomorrow. I really hope it works out. It's going to be a wonderful thing to be able to go anytime or day I want, instead of having to go during a brief window a couple times a week. (The place is open 24/7, so really, anytime I want.)

Oddly there's no life guard for the pool. I can swim just fine, but still, that's a little worrying.

3) I finished book #45 for the year. The Ask and the Answer (Chaos Walking, book two) by Patrick Ness. A good book, but not as good as the first one. Two POV characters instead of one is really dampening my enjoyment of it. The POV changes between them as frequently as every paragraph (with a header over each paragraph). Having two POVs in the same room/scene looking at the same thing just doesn't work for me.

I'll post a better review after the third and final book, which I'm reading now.

4) Bonus item! Had doctor appointment today, she was very happy with my bloodwork numbers. One day soon I will post a write-up of medical stuff, but I keep dragging my feet on it...
