Every summer, I say that I’m going to get some reading done. And most summers, my reading list doesn’t really get any shorter. However, now that grad school is over and I already have the spring play figured out for next school year, I actually have time to get some reading done.
My list is a bit varied but I’m excited to work my way through it.
What’s on your reading list for this summer?
This year, more than many other years, I have really really really needed this Christmas break. But, now, I actually have time to do some reading….some non-grad school reading. I can sit down and look at recipes (although I haven’t really tried out any yet). I am going to make an effort to take better care of myself in 2017 so that I can be better for everyone else who need me. In the meantime, Amy Poehler and a toasty fire in the fireplace are helping greatly.
One of my project a couple weeks ago was to go through all of big sister’s baby toys and get them ready for little sister to play with them. I went through the baby toys in the toy room and washed them so they would be ready for tummy time play in the living room. I wasn’t sure where to put them as we’ve been trying very hard to keep the living room from becoming Toy Room 2.0. Ryan mentioned the small canvas container that had been in big sister’s room that held some of the more frequently read books. I knew that that would work perfectly. All that I would have to do would be to move the books onto her book shelf in her bedroom.
Now, these are not her only books. Big sister has books in the toy room and in the living room but most of her books are in her bedroom. You can quickly take a look at the book shelf and see that this is a kid who loves books. And that makes me very proud.
Books. Books. Books.
The next organization task is to pack up my maternity clothes and go through all of my other clothes. I’ve made a large pile of clothes to get rid of and am in the process of finding places for the rest of my clothes to go.
