Speaking Of Schedules...

As you can tell, mine has been a little off lately. Especially where this blog is concerned.

Last week, on Monday the 5th, my sister gave me a couple of books cause I had mentioned that I wanted to read something. I started reading "All She Ever Wanted" by Lynn Austin that evening. I finished it on Tuesday evening. Amazingly enough, I also got a few loads of laundry done at the same time. Speaking of laundry, I'll be back in a sec...

Now, I'm back (as if you were reading this in real time, HA!).

Then on Wednesday, I started reading the other one, "A Woman's Place," also by Lynn Austin. I finished that one on Friday afternoon. And it was COLD last week, so a large portion of the book reading time was spent in the bathroom - the warmest room in the house. :)

Small book review: Both books were great. I love getting into a good story. And Lynn Austin is a good writer, not revealing all the secrets right up front and making you wait till the end to bring everything around. I have read a couple of her other books and liked them, as well. From this review, you can tell that I am not a writer but I can appreciate the art in others.

I have determined that I'm not very good at doing two or more projects at once. If, for example, I am painting a masterpiece, I cannot get anything else done, except maybe laundry. and even that suffers a little. So while reading books last week, the blogging suffered.

What is my excuse this week? The weather. Tons of snow and a husband that decided to work from home four out of five days. Don't get me wrong, we're glad to have him. But as he sits in front of our regular desktop computer, he lets me use his laptop for the internet and it's just not the same. No mouse, no favorites, no pictures saved on the hard drive. That's why I ususally don't blog on Thursdays and Fridays, and this week, not at all. I'm at his laptop right now... it is better than nothing.

Anyway.... another reason that I may have been putting off the blogging... this is post number 99 which means that the next one is supposed to be titled 100 things about me. Now, I have been thinking of what to include on this list. But that is all it has been, thinking. I should have been writing them down. Some of them, if I remember, were funny. But now all I remember is laughing at myself when I thought of them, not the actual thing. This will take some major brain power.

So now you know a few more things about me... I cannot do two major things at once, and I tend to put things off that I know are going to take a lot of effort. Darn, I should have saved that for the next post. Hmmm.

you do love to procrastinate. :-) Just like that pottery "paper" you had to write. It always ends up great, you just need to jump right in! Can't wait to read 100! You might even surprise me.
