I usually post during my lunch break at work. It’s the only free time I have during the day that I can do something I enjoy to relax without having to worry about juggling a baby and household. Well, that’s not happening today. Some days I skip a post and work thru lunch while spooning yogurt into my mouth. That’s not the plan today.
Thanks to my dear friend Erin, we recently exchanged books. I gave her ‘Girl with the Dragon Tatoo’ – which by the way is a GREAT read. It takes a bit to get into, but it’s well worth the work! And Erin gave me the ’50 Shades of Grey’ series. Well, I made the mistake last night of reading before bed. At the time, I didn’t think it was a big mistake. I was in bed at 9:30, which meant I should have just gone to sleep, but I told myself I would just crack open the book to see what it’s all about. BAD IDEA. I was up until almost midnight before I MADE myself put it down. Such a great read!
Before crashing on the pillow, I sent Erin a text, “i hate you. i just spent the past 2 hours engulfed in ffity shades. omg soooo good couldn’t put it down! Vinays gonna hate me the next few days cuz all i’ll want to do is read…”
And it’s true, because when Vinay sees me with a book in bed he knows there will be no chatting in bed. No cuddling. I’ll be zoned out. I personally like reading a book before bed to settle down – but this book is NOT a ‘settle down’ book. If I keep reading this at night, I’ll never get any sleep!
So, I brought the book to work with me today and it’ll stay at work so I can read at lunch which means Vinay will be happy and I’ll get sleep 🙂
So for today I’m taking some ‘me time’ and putting up my “Gone
Fishing Reading” sign…
What are you reading? Do you trade books with friends? When do you find time to read during the day/night?
