Somedays you're in the mood, and well, some you aren't...for books, that is. This long weekend was one of those "not in the mood" times. My family and I spent a nice mini-vacation and I brought a book for the intent purpose of reading it. I just couldn't get myself to open it! Everytime I'd get myself to grab the book, I found something a little more enticing to do -
go in the pool with the kids, play with the kids, take a nap with the kids...
So my reasoning for not reading, as you can see, had merit. It was the first weekend that I could truly enjoy being with my daughter and son. I have spent the first part of the year absorbed with work and school - when I wasn't working, I was at school. When I wasn't at work or school, I was studying. And when I wasn't doing any of that, I was *busy*. Busy with laundry, cooking....and, um, sleeping. This weekend was the first time this year, I didn't have to study for an exam or do homework.
I could just be *mommy* and that just made me feel happy.
So, I did bring a book that I intended to have finished by last night...so that I could have a review for today's post. I just couldn't get myself to pry myself away from being *mommy*...and, you know what? That's okay...
Happy short week to you : ) Hope you have some time to spend your time right!
