Ashamed of myself!

I really am. I pride myself on being a reader. I enjoy reading and miss it when I don't read. But lately, I've been slacking. This summer schedule and pace has lead me down a dark road of not having enough time to read.
I miss my reading time. Even if it was only for a few minutes, I would sit in the truck and wait for the kids to get out of school with my nose buried in my book. I loved that time! So, no school, no reading time. I always had 1/2 hour after the kids left for school to read while I was in bed getting ready to go to sleep. Now, I just come home at 6AM and crawl into bed and fall asleep. I miss that time!
So to redeem myself, I vow to make more time for reading for myself. I need this and I'm going to do this FOR ME. I need to get back on track. I had a goal of a book a week and I was doing great with my goal. I've had this one book that I'm reading for 2 weeks and I'm on page 73. That's a disgrace!
I'm going to challenge myself again. I'm going to motivate myself again. I'm going to discipline myself again. And I'm going to kick some serious reading butt again!
A book a week or I'm going to take away my library card!



  1. LOL!! It's summer; enjoy yourself. BTW, I luv purple too.

  2. They'll never take away your library card. In fact, it should be bronzed and put on display. You'll get back into reading. You're just on a short vacation. ;)

  3. I feel the same way. Sitting in the parking lot waiting for the kids was pure reading/listening to books on CD time. I didn't even feel like I was putting other things off to read... what else could I do?!?

    We're headed to the pool today, I'll do a lot of reading :o)

    Definitely agree with Karen...your library card should be bronzed and displayed ;o)

  4. No need to feel ashamed - we all go through reading slumps. You can get yourself out :)


So, whatcha thinkin?
