I’ve sat here at my computer the past two mornings thinking I’d like to type something, but I just couldn’t think of anything all that profound to say. Not that my other blogs are necessarily profound, but I have enjoyed writing each. Am I already having writer’s block?! I could write about all the great places we’ve visited around the world, like Sweden or France or Australia (I wanna go back there!). I could tell a story about the kids when they were younger in Japan or Guam. Instead, I just feel like curling up with another book.
I’ve been on a reading kick lately. It might be my sister-in-law’s fault. I think she’s an addict. She sent me a link to www.goodreads.com, and after finding out what the sight was all about, I immediately added all of the books from our bookshelf that I’ve read. There are countless others that I have borrowed from friends or checked out at the library or are in storage in Florida, but I can’t remember all of them; and then there are those that I can’t even remember if I’ve read them to begin with… I finished Twilight (the vampire book) yesterday. I think I am a romantic sap. I kept thinking, it’s a book about high schoolers. How dorky is it that I am reading it? I actually liked it; it’s one that I didn’t want to put down because I wanted to find out what happened next. And now I am waiting for my oldest son to finish the next one (his girlfriend loves the series and talked him into reading them; I’m curious to see his view of them), so that I can find out what happens… next.
After finishing it, I moved on to a dvd I checked out at the library. (No, I do not just sit around all day blogging and reading and watching tv and eating bon bons!) Thursday is laundry day, and I usually fold (and there is a lot of folding to do here with a family of 5, all of whom change their clothing at least twice a day (ugh)) while catching up on Grey’s Anatomy or something. Anyway, I watched The Jane Austin Book Club, which I found most entertaining, very funny and romantic. It made me want to go out and read all of Jane Austin’s books. I have never read any of them before, only watched a couple of the movies based on them. When the characters discussed the books at their book club meetings in the movie, I was a little lost. I usually enjoy the book more than the movie, so I think those will be my next reads. So I’m off to the book store once again. But first, I’ll do my Friday chores – woo hoo! – the bathrooms.
