I've promised myself that I will return to my bookworm roots this year... the habit of a woman without a child or a job and with much too much time on her hands. But since I DO have a kid and a job and all the responsibilities that go along with them, I'll have to adjust my expectations a bit... I guess. No more 12 hour reading marathons for me, but Im going to have to do better than a few chapters before bed and whatever time I can carve out hiding away in the bathroom during the day. My goal is to read at least 50 books this year. Doable? Maybe. Last year I believe I managed 33 books.
But with reading and Doctor Who reruns taking up my free time, things of the crafty variety have all but disappeared. Sad, right? It's ok though, get me past the pink, red, glitter, and lovey doveyness of Valentines day and I'll probably jump back into it. Maybe. Eventually.

READING: "Moranthology" by Caitlin Moran (I may be moderately obsessed with her). I just finished "In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American family in Berlin" by Erik Larson, which has me itching to read more history non-fiction.
WATCHING: Doctor Who! After over a year of nagging our roommate, I finally broke him down and got him to watch it. We've been watching 2-3 episodes most evenings and I'm in heaven watching it all over again. We're just about done with season 4 and my David Tennant loving heart is anticipating being broken all over again.
LOVING: The accomplishment I feel when I finish yet another book.
ANTICIPATING: No more back pain would be lovely. I somehow managed to strain a muscle in my back yesterday... while sorting laundry. Ive been laid up for the past 24 hours and I officially feel old.
LAUGHING: At the kid's chocolate (Shakeology) covered face.
LISTENING: The Rolling Stones. I read an interview with Keith Richards the other day, so they've been on my mind. But I did just hear "Trouble" by Cat Stevens on a TV show, so that may be coming through the speakers shortly.
EATING: Dark chocolate covered pomegranate candies, awaiting the husband's delivery of a Papa Murphys veggie pizza..
WISHING: I could spend more time with my family -- why exactly did I move to Utah?
WORRYING: Oh you know me... I worry about everything.
WEARING: Not my shining moment really... black leggings, the husbands bright blue shirt, and a slouchy super unflattering black sweater. I've been beyond lazy when it comes to my wardrobe as of late. At least Im comfortable.
