Life is so busy that these Sundays seem to be coming sooner than they used to. I haven’t read more than 20 pages this week so I have no reading update to give you. Still working on The Big Over Easy in print and Torment in audio. I also started Where Things Come Back by John Corey Whaley yesterday (on Ginger’s recommendation) trying to kickstart some weekend reading. But I ended up playing on the internet instead.
I can’t keep my mind from wandering when I read. It wants to be planning for the baby or planning for the house or planning for work (the most frustrating). I’m just letting this busy planning time run its course. If it means I read a little less, oh well. Life changes and you have to let it happen sometimes.
So laissez-faire Michelle may be around for a little while. Hopefully still bringing you a book review now and then.
I can’t focus and I have no excuse, except normal busy-ness. I’m sitting here wondering when you are due!! It seems like it must be soon…
I cannot focus on reading either. Seriously. I read ONE BOOK this week. It doesn’t make any sense, because I have MORE time off than I used to. Ah well. And you have an excuse… planning for baby is EXTREMELY exciting! 🙂
The whole planning thing always throws a wrench in my reading, too. Anytime I’m planning anything major (which you’ve got all kinds of major things on your plate, it seems), I can’t focus on anything for crap…reading, blogging, everything falls by the wayside except for the obsessive planning! Ah, well, hope all the planning pays off in the end and that you get back to your reading in due course. =)
There are a lot of reasons for you to be meandering right now, and I hope that you are finding pleasant and relaxing times amidst all that is changing for you. Don’t worry if you aren’t reading as much. You have a lot bigger things to be thinking about!
