Guess what I am doing...;)

Guess what I have been doing lately?

READING!

That is what I used to do ALL. SUMMER. LONG.

When I wasn't married and had no kids to worry about feeding. But I started reading this one book and couldn't put it down. And then the greatest thing happened: I got strep throat! And Principe decided to stay home because sometimes I get super high fevers with strep and never feel up to doing anything more than throwing frozen pizza at my kids along with uninterrupted hours of Dora. So he took them to the park and I read. Then the next day he went to work and I read while picking up the house. That action resulted in my head meeting the corner of an open cabinet at least twice. And then some naughty word mumbled while my hand banged said cabinet shut. That should have taught me twice about reading and walking. But I used to do it all the time, so I thought I would take up that talent again.

Apparently I never tried reading while vacuuming. Or if I did I have lost that talent completely.

See, the problem with me reading is that now I don't want to stop. I have found the pleasure of reading again and I don't want to do anything else. I have been reading a book in French for about four months, but the book I picked up a few days ago is in Spanish, which I can read much faster and without stopping to look up words five times a page, so in that sense the reading has become pleasurable again. Plus, the book was set in the 1800s, which I love too.

But then I finished the book and was sad. So I found another one. And now I can't stop. But my house is starting to look like a volcano erupted so I really need to put the book down. But reading has lit a fire in me to also write. I have so many ideas going around in my head but no time to put them on paper.

I never would have thought that I would be sad that we have plans for the next three weekends in a row. Bummer. No reading and no writing.

What summer reading are you doing?
