Hungry for more...

I have heard people say that housewives are just women who are too lazy to get jobs. Seriously, when I decided I was going to stay home with Lydia I heard this many, many times. It was offensive then. Now, it is just laughable. Here I am...ordered by my doctor to stay off my feet as much as possible, "relax" he says...and of course it is impossible. I try. I really do, but I still have at least 2 meals to prepare, I have to somewhat keep up on the basic housework, and I have to entertain my child. Even when my assignment is to be lazy, it is not possible.

Anyway. My days are not as mellow as they should be, so I make up for it by going to bed around 8 and relaxing until I feel up to sleep, at around 11. I'm not a big TV person, so I have been reading. A lot. I just counted 11 novels that I have read in the last 20 days. I feel like I am back in college, only with the luxury of choosing my own reading material.

Last night I read "The Hunger Games." I've been told it was good, but have refrained since I heard it compared to "Ender's Game" (my very favorite book) and as I rule, I find books in that same genre disappointing. The only thing disappointing about the Hunger Games was that it was over much too soon. Read it. Go ahead. Be lazy for the day. Get some bon bons to snack on. You know you deserve it.

I LOVED this book!! I just read it about 2 weeks ago, and am trying to fill the void until the next one comes out.
I read CONSTANTLY, and decided to start a book blog. There's not much there now, but I'm working on it. You'll have to check it out sometime...
