I have made a decision. Uh-oh SCARY!!
No Really. My decision is this. I miss reading. I am a huge book fan. Love to read. Love the smell of bookstores and libraries. Love to immerse myself in all kinds of lives of other people, fiction, true-life, funny, sad, pointless, inspiration, you name it.
Every since the birth of Baby DIVA it is quite hard to find a free moment to read. I am pretty sure I have mentioned on more than one occasion here on this blog that I have two bathrooms and each have a book in it. On the off chance I get an extra moment of "toilet time", I try and read a page or two. not the finest way to read a book mind you.
So I have made a commitment to myself. I have alerted the Hubbs-to-be of my new commitment, and now I am telling you my fine friends and readers. I am going to make sure I take 20 minutes of Pink Haired Momma time each day to read, no matter what. It is my special brain reinforcement time!! I am gonna hold myself to this and I hope you help me too.
I already have a pile of books (as this is forever growing). I started the first book in my pile a few days ago. This first book is The Queen of the Big Time by Adriana Trigiani. So far so good. Two days into this book and I am 50 pages in, spent 20 minutes each day reading and therefore keeping with my commitment despite Baby DIVA attempts for my undivided attention, and I am loving it!
Here are the books I have stacked up on the bedside tables and backs of toilets:
My Sister's Keeper By Jodi Picoult
The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova
A Proper Pursuit by Lynn Austin
Chocolate Beach by Juile Carobini
Always Green by Patti Hill
Hoping to complete all of these by the end of the summer. A passion for reading and a passion for giving into my child monopolizing my time. Which passion will win?
Hmmm I guess if I work under Hubbs-to-be motorcycle philosophy then when I complete these books I should be entitled to a Pink Diamond! Wink Wink.
