I Blame Lisa for this one
I have not gotten anything done today because Lisa in my book club (a different Lisa than the one who introduced me to Sonic's Route 44) selected the book, "The Quilter's Apprentice" by Jennifer Chiaverini for our meeting in March. I started it last night, stayed up way too late reading it and then had to finish it today. Everything stopped in our house while I was reading it. I let the kids fend for themselves for lunch out of the pantry (which means goldfish crackers, Mint Milano cookies and Fresca) and just held toothsome #4 and read. It is now almost 5:00pm, my house is a wreck, I need to change some diapers and then start dinner. It was a great read but now I have to get back to my life. When I start a good book, I have no self control and read until it is over and then am sad that I finished it. Why can't I just portion a good book out over a few days a least?
