In addition to Goodnight Gorilla and other board-book classics, I’ve been reading Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese, as recommended by sposita. I got it on the Kindle, which I still love, and I started reading while we stayed with the Romgi’s parents. They were looking after the Bwun so well, and the Romgi still had class to go to, so…what else was I supposed to do? Oh yeah, sleep. But I did get about a third of the way through the book and it’s riveting so far. I haven’t got a clue what the rest of the book is going to be about. Or necessarily what it’s been about already. Interesting, though!
I woke up with good intentions this morning. We had a nice full night’s sleep and while I was tired, I felt like I could get a few things done today. And the Romgi brought me a Dunford, so you know my day had a good start. But by the time the Romgi left for school I’d run out of energy and motivation.
Instead of accomplishing much of anything, I read the inside of my eyelids.
It was a great story of rest and relaxation and peace and – what? The Bwun knows how to take his diaper off?
Well, suffice it to say that we had some major cleanup at our house today. But it wasn’t the kind where I could (or would) show you a before-and-after photo.
We’re into November now…and I still have 9 books to finish by the end of the year. Hmm, should I aim for a clean house or getting to my reading goal? Reading, you say? I agree. The house will never be clean, anyway. As evidence I submit our living room today:
Also, evidence of why it’s ok that my house looks like this:
One final note: I found the perfect postage stamps to use for our Christmas cards. I can’t wait to send them out.
Do you guys read anything besides my blog? I’m still taking recommendations for books by authors with last names starting with A, E, J, L, O, Q, X, and Z…
P.S. That high school picture of us I posted yesterday was pretty great! I can’t believe you guys didn’t say anything about it. Say it now.
