Today ended up being exceptionally busy. I unexpected stop at the coffeehouse and there was the entire cast of “The View” (as dubbed by the baristas). I had to stop and chat. And I can’t chat and read a book at the same time. Pretty soon it was time for an unexpected babysitting adventure. I agreed yesterday to watch one of the hosts of “The View”‘s child so she could attend a business meeting. Me and a 4-year-old. It’s been 4 years since I really took care of a 4-year-old. (Can you guess how old my twins are?) He was super calm and we enjoyed watching a bit of Disney channel and me pretending to eat the meal he created. After that, I went back home intending on reading, but was distracted by house things. In the blink of an eye, it was time to pick up the boys from school. Then I decided we should go to Borders. Our store is closing and I haven’t perused the selection for almost two weeks. A few sections were marked down even more (40-50% off) and they are running a special for Easter–buy 6 books get an extra 15% off total purchase, buy 8 books get an extra 25% off total purchase. The boys and I went for 8, picking up a The Lost Hero (they’ve been begging for it since it came out), a few other independent readers, and a few books for me.. My top pick–Lost in Austen, a choose-your-own adventure book based on her world. Can’t wait read it. Finally home for some reading, then dinner, then back to reading, then putting the boys to bed, then finally back to reading. Whew! I think that’s enough for one day.
