Random Friday on Saturday

Christmas break has been very busy these past few days. Despite the fact that neither my husband nor I are from large families, we have had plenty of places to go. On Christmas Eve Day we were at my parents' house. Only my sister and her husband didn't make it back because of the weather. Yesterday morning we had to unwrap our presents from Santa, and then went to my in-laws for lunch and the afternoon. Today the girls had sled rides from our neighbor who hooked up his tractor and pulled a sled down our road with the girls riding on it (I heard from my husband after the fact that this was probably dangerous and I should be happy I wasn't watching it). We also went to a few shops with my mom and then took in the new Alvin and the Chipmunks movie. Tonight we ate pizza at my parents' house along with one aunt and uncle and cousins. Tomorrow we leave for a 3 day trip to the Twin Cities to see aunts, uncles and cousins, do some shopping, and take in Hansel and Gretel at the Old Log Theater in Excelsior, MN. It also happens to be my birthday and wedding anniversary tomorrow. I do have a stack of books to read and yet when I look through them none seem to be calling my name. I started The Maze Runner by James Dashner, but just haven't been able to get into it -I think I will try it again before giving up entirely. It seems that when I start to read anything I am interrupted which makes it hard to get into a book, and that is what I am blaming my reading apathy on. And since Ihave been interrupted about every two seconds over break so far, I really can't see an end to this problem until after break is over.
I hope to get some reading done on our car trip, look over the books I have read in 2009 and post my own personal best list of the past year, and also get signed up for some challenges for 2010. There are a few I have been looking at, but need to commit myself within the next few days.
If I have time tomorrow before we leave, I will try to post a review or two since I have several books that I have finished that I need to write about soon.

You're busy! Happy Birthday! I have SIX books that I haven't reviewed. I haven't done my Random Friday in weeks. I'm TWO books away from my goal for the year. TWO!! I'm off this week though so hopefully can catch up everywhere and make my goal.
