Not Reading Very Much

I had high hopes for Easter weekend in terms of reading. We had an extra day off - no school yesterday- but we have been busy running around doing things. Yesterday morning started off with a long overdue trip to the post office to mail my godson's Christmas present (nothing like stringing things out a bit), then a visit to Target. Target was way too busy for my liking, but we managed to get most of what we needed and my two year old was only crying for the last ten minutes of this trip. Lunch, a visit to my husband's office so the girls could see Dad at work, some playing outside, then gymnastics class. After gymnastics, a stop at home for frozen pizza and then off to visit some friends before we rushed home to go to bed. Today has been about that busy again: Easter egg decorating this morning followed by lots of hunting, then lunch out with friends and seeing Hannah Montana: The Movie. Now we are at my parents for Easter tonight. Tomorrow we go to the in-laws, then church. So, I have read 10 pagesin a new book over this long weekend. I have managed to read a bit in my treadmill book, Honeymoon in Tehran, and my bike book: Handle with Care by Jodi Picoult. Hopefully I can find a few minutes to myself to get something read tomorrow afternoon. If not, at least I will have enjoyed the long weekend, the beautiful weather, and spending time with my family.

Wow-that is a busy weekend! Mine was just about as crazy-lots of errands and today lots of cooking.
Hopefully, this week will calm down a bit.
