Reading time......

Honestly, I'm glad it's summer and school is over. Well, as of tomorrow morning at 10:30AM it's over.

I like the relaxing, no schedules schedule of summer. No homework, no projects, no last minute can you run me back to school cause I forgot a book, no running to the store to get ink for the printer cause the project is due tomorrow.

The only, ONLY, thing I will miss about the school year is that little bit of time between when I park the truck and then the kids come out of school. That was a little bit of reading time for me. Not every day, since I would sometimes have my older son with me and we'd talk. I loved those days. But the other days, when I could sit back, open the windows and crack open my book.

I'm going to miss those few precious extra minutes every day!

I know I"ll get more reading time during the summer. More time at work, at home, before I go to sleep in the morning, even at night on the weekends! But those few minutes were only reading minutes. There was NOTHING else I could do in those minutes. There was no phone, no washer or dryer, no outside interference that could keep me from reading in those few minutes. At home, someone will see me sitting and relaxing, a pile of laundry will call out my name, a dirty tub will realize and work it's way into my mind.

Those few minutes in the truck, they were mine, all mine, and they were priceless!

Until September my friend, until we meet again!


  1. I seriously think we were seperated at birth. I LOVE reading while waiting in carpool... for your exact reasons... no distractions!

  2. Just stopping by via the hop! nice to meet you! :)

    And the plot thickens...

  3. Hi, I'm stopping by on the Hop. I totally relate to your waving goodbye to your little bit of reading time in the truck. My kiddo is grown and I now have much more time to read. Your time will come too. Pretty blog, by the way. I'll be a new follower.

  4. Hi, I found you one the hop. I am doing a beach bag giveaway package on my book blog site too. I hope you hop by and check it out and enter.
