Still waiting

Today we are supposed to have a repair person come look at our treadmill sometime between the hours of 1-5PM. We purchased our treadmill almost 2 years ago of Craigslist, we got a great price on it - however I think the person selling it to us should have kept it. Either way I we picked it up on a good deal. A few months ago it started squeaking really bad. I asked my brother what he thought, he used to do repairs for Life Fitness and he said, what brand, I said Nordic Track, he said chuck it! He might be an equipment snob. Either way all of a sudden the squeaking stopped, but the belt would slip a little when I ran. I figured it was my poor running form and my weight. Sean decided we should have it looked at since we have been using it for a while just to keep it running good.

So here I am.......its almost 3PM and I am still waiting. The repair man did call a while ago and said he will be here in a hour so I guess that is good. For the most part I feel like I have spent a waisted day waiting for him. I suppose I could have been productive, but I figured once I started something he would show up. Instead I choice to read. I am currently reading Mockingjay, the third book in the Hunger Games series, I have feeling I will be done with this one soon since I just started the series on Monday. I love good books. Do you have any book recommendations?

As for working out, I was hoping I could get a short run in after the repair person was here. I might have to leave that for tonight, we will see how the evening goes.
