Hey! Guess what? I AM LEAVING FOR TEXAS IN TWO DAYS!!!!!!!!!!!
Honestly, I’m amazed I’m reading at all. I have so many things on my mind. What to pack? What to do? How many more clothes to wash? How to get my hubby to get the suitcases from the attic? (I only asked him to do it three days ago!) How much I’m going to cry when I finally meet my Andi? How am I going to get my dress to Texas with minimal wrinkling? What am I going to do about my poor daughter who can barely stand that we’re leaving for four nights? She’s already in tears most of the time and being all clingy.
I see a lot of Facetime/Skyping in my future for sure.
Oh yes, reading. Right. Amazingly, I AM DOING THIS. A little bit. I had an incredibly busy weekend of washing clothes and stuff. Friday night I finished I Shall Be Near to You by Erin Lindsay McCabe (amazingly with few tears). Twas SO GOOD. Then Monday morning, while a load of clothes were washing, I started Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones. You may remember I said I was going to make friends with her this year. Well halleluah! We did it. I zipped through about half of that book yesterday, despite laundry, TWO BIRTHDAY PARTIES, AND two naps. Yes, I had two naps. Daylight Savings Time kills me. I woke up late today.
Whoa nelly. Books. Right. I read almost half of Howl yesterday. AND I LOVE IT.
I’ve been listening to Shotgun Lovesongs in the car during my commute. I’m amazed to find that I am about halfway through the book, when I feel like I’m barely into the story. Unfortunately, I’m going to have to take a break from it since it’s on CD and I won’t be back until Sunday AND I’m too lazy to burn it and put it on my phone. Don’t let this attitude influence your thinking on the book; I’m always too lazy to burn things to put on my phone.
I started Y: The Last Man Deluxe Edition 2 Friday night. I didn’t get very far into it, but I can tell it’s just as exciting as the first one. I said I wasn’t going to take any books with me to Texas (wah? I mean actual made out of paper books. My iPad is DEFINITELY going with me and therefore over 200 books. You can breathe now.) but Y may make the trip if I don’t finish it by Wednesday.
Honestly, I haven’t touched Queen and Country since February. I am not sure what this means. I was enjoying it, but am not feeling particularly motivated to pick it up. Maybe after Texas.
TEXAS!! And my Andi! In TWO DAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!! Eeek!!!
Have a great week everyone!
