Clean Slate

Yesterday as I looked at my enormous stack of library books, I just had the notion of taking many of them back. Of course I haven't read them all, and I can't make myself take ALL of them back, but I did weed through them and eliminate those that are due back soon- and realistically I have no way of reading before then. It would feel wonderful to start 2011 with a clean slate. I think. Or maybe not. I fear running out of books to read and the idea of having nothing sitting around from the library might actually drive me crazy.

Tomorrow is my birthday and my anniversary. My husband has to work and tomorrow evening we are supposed to be getting together with my aunts and uncles and cousins on my mom's side of the family for a pizza party. My husband and I are planning on a dinner out sometime over break, but tomorrow is our only chance to see these relatives, so our dinner will have to be delayed a day or two.

I have a few books underway that I hope to review tomorrow, and then need to take a few minutes to post about the challenges I am planning on taking part in.

I'm a little tempted to do the same thing! Just take them all back... But, I doubt I'll be able to take all of them back!

And, Happy Birthday/Anniversary! My birthday is tomorrow too, and I haven't met very many people who share that birthday with me! :)

happy birthday/anniversary! That's a lot for one day!
I have a big pile of books to be reviewed that I don't seem to be getting to--maybe those I don't finish up with by the new year will just go into the donate pile!

Happy birthday & anniversary! Sounds like a special day. I have 5 books out right now, and most of them are going back unread... I can relate to worrying about running out of books to read. I'm afraid I'll really get the desire to sit down and read for a long time but I'll be without lots of options :) It never actually happens though, so I don't know why I'm concerned lol.
