Today finds me alone, Kevin has gone into his office to get some work done, he has federal examiners in his credit union the next two weeks and he knows he’ll be pulled in million directions. I’m home reading/drinking coffee. I need to make a grocery run and cook dinner but that’s about it for my must dos today.
I completed my first book of the new year yesterday. Descent from Tim Johnston. I’ll have a review up this week.
My reading was very hit or miss in December. I’m blaming it on the holidays. Life returns to more routine this week, my son heading back to school. The college girls were in and out and they begin spring classes Wednesday. So exciting, Caitie is taking here last 4 classes and will graduate in May….I’m so very proud of her. Adrienne took a semester off to transition between colleges and she will finish in December. My amazing girls!
On the books I’m reading front I started The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins late last night. I’m trying to finish The Voices, and I think if I just sit down determined I will. I’ve been lead away from it from other books. I’ve got something on audio, but I’m not invested in it yet. There are too many books I want to read publishing in January, not the best way to start out the year, feeling again like I need to read all the books. UGH.
I’m not one to make New Year Resolutions, but I do have goals. I always want to be kinder, more loving, more patient. I want to be a better wife, mom and friend, to spend more time reaching out to my friends, and taking the time for them. I want to feel less stress, self imposed mind you, about my reading. I’ve never been intimidated or spoken harshly to by a publisher, publicist, or author. My stress is all by me…silly woman. I also want to remember to read all the older titles I own, and read them too. I know I’m not alone in this. I’d like to blog more consistently, and to write more on book topics, not just book reviews.
What about you? Have you set goals for 2015? I hope you’ll share them. Have a wonderful Sunday!!
