Time for Just Me (and my book)
Please don’t judge, but I stayed in my bed today until 3:00 (yes, pm!). I’m not sick and no, I wasn’t sleeping. I stayed in bed to finish a book. It was a reading emergency!
From September until March, I am up with B and E for their Saturday and Sunday weekend team practices by 5:30 am – every Saturday and Sunday. We are out the door by 6 am and don’t return until afternoon. This was the first weekend morning I had to myself since last summer. I indulged in a great book.
I started this book yesterday and picked it up again this morning before I started my day. I just couldn’t put it down. I kept reading until I finished it. Paul brought my breakfast. B brought my snack. E brought my lunch. No one missed me. No one needed me. No one complained. So I just kept reading.
I was completely engaged in this book. This book had mystery, tragedy, and hope for what’s good and right to prevail. This book had me thinking and reflecting about all things past and present. How could I stop reading before I got to the end?
I really do have the most wonderful family. Thank you for giving me time – time for just me (and my book). I love you, Paul and B and E!
ps I downloaded another book!
