Lazy, Busy Days

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.

  1. Yeah, it might be my fault. But, what a good habit to have, huh? I can’t wait to get into your books when y’all get moved in here. It will be like going to Disney World for me. And no long lines…..YAY!!
    I’m with you on laundry, sister. Send me your schedule of chores (what day you do what). I am needing some guidance in that department. I might just swipe yours and be done with it. I keep talking about getting myself organized like that, but I never seem to get it together and my house stays a mess. So, I will wait to see what your cleaning schedule is like and maybe adopt it.
