So I use to be a stay at home mom who does a few volunteer jobs at school and in my community. Not any more. My husband got laid off November 2008. Now I am part owner of a small franchise business and still an avid volunteer in my community. Not my preferred choice. Husband refused to seriously look for a job in his previous profession. He said he looked and there were no jobs to be had. Yet he still gets calls from head hunters. Well now we are the owners of a business that is completely different from his corporate job, meaning there is menial labor involved. He comes home complaining about being wiped out from his work day. I am like "That's nice". He is so out of his mind if he thinks I am going to attend his pity party. ha ha ha
So now I work part time at my own menial labor intensive retail job with its funky hours. I do the administrative work for our business, including all contact with our clients. Not to mention I was unable to drop all my volunteer stuff because I would be letting down too many kids if I quit. So my work load tripled, but hey, I rarely go to bed not feeling exhausted and stressed.
Ok. Bitch session is over. It is time to discuss my Book Obsession. Maybe that is should be reading addict. Not sure what you want to classify it. Let me start from the beginning. I joined a MJD yahoo book group. Great group btw. So they have a reading contest and/or book list. Everyone's goal is to read 50 books in a year. Now let me put things into prospective for you, it is March and I just admitted to my work load tripling and book list for 2010 is at 37 books. Yes, it doesn't seem possible to read that many fiction novels with my limited free time and that is true. But I read every second I have. Bathroom, cooking, cleaning, waiting in carpool line and every spare minute in between is when I read. And my new reading obsession is the fantasy fiction, Anita Blake series. Of course being limited to the library I am reading them all out of order. I am impatiently waiting on the Jim Butcher, Changes, another Dresden Files book to come out in April. I read the Twilight Saga end of last year. It was only ok. It had the crappiest ending to the saga.
Well that is all the boring stuff I am posting for the night. Later Dude.
P. S. Maybe I will post another entry about my weird ex's or ex-admirers that seem to be circling around lately. Hmm. . . Do you think they know something I don't know?<o:p></o:p>
