I am here standing beside myself

(Can you name that quote?)

So somewhere in the middle of the list of Habitually Neglected Things sits this blog. Also: the yard, meal planning, checkbook balancing, hanging pictures (our walls are still bare and I'm afraid I don't even notice anymore!), and every closet in this house.

So I'm going to deal with the blog today, because that's by far the most pleasant duty. (Ha! If I call it a duty, it means I need to do it, right?)

I'll start with books. Because everywhere I lookevery day, that's what I see. I won't bore you with a recitation of all of the books lying around. I'll bore you with a random collection of books we are reading:

From the library:

And by "reading," I mean the children are reading their books and I ritualistically pick up my book about 0.3 seconds before I fall asleep. But the books are so pretty on my nightstand.

Do you have any good reads to share? I feel a nap coming on...


  1. We really liked Little Britches here. :)

  2. I hear you on the bedtime reading! I read a couple pages...maybe...and then have to re-read at least half of that the next night. And so on. It takes a while to get through a book, that's for sure!

  3. OOOO!!! Little Britches! I forgot about that book. Must pick that one back up. And on an aside, I had a cow named Little Britches when I was about 10 :-)
    Glad to see you're still blogging. You are doing WAY better than I am!

  4. Thanks for checking in with me, old friend. I am nesting, seriously nesting and avoiding blogging for no good reason other than it feels like a luxury I can't afford right now. I hope to get back to it soon. Miss you and hope you and your little ones sleep well tonight.
