Day two of Bout of Books 11...check.
Today was a rough one. I spent most of my day trying to remember that today was Tuesday. I don't know what day I thought it was, but for the life of me I could not remember that tomorrow (well..today by the time I publish this) is Wednesday. Just one of those days.
Work was busy and I completely forgot to take my book with me to work today. Failure on my part since that would've given me at least another 45 minutes of page time.
After I got home and dealt with dinner, I spent a bit of time watching Gilmore Girls and working on cutting seams for a rag quilt I should be finishing up tomorrow. I always watch Gilmore Girls when I sew a big project. It's a tradition for me, I suppose.
Once my hand started getting worn out from the constant squeeze of the scissors, I moved my evening and Darian and I hung out and read together for a bit before he headed off to bed. Tomorrow is his first day of 7th grade. Hard to believe that the little kid who used to refer to the Yeti as the "Barbie Doll Snowman" (abominable snowman in 4-year-old English) is now more than half way through his primary education.
In the end, he's still kicking my can at the current read-a-thon, but I now have a chance to do some catching up. He'll be at school instead of home lounging, so his reading time will be cut significantly. Depending on how much homework his teachers decide to assign during week one, he could be relegated to only his half hour reading time before bed. We'll see. Maybe they'll be nice...
Enough of this blabber. Here's where we are as of Tuesday evening...
