Now on to my other new I made my goal for the year to read 55 books. Well I am up to 57 books and I plan to burst past the goal too because I love to read. You might ask where a mom of 4 finds time to read? Well I wait 20 mins in a car line to pick my kids and other tiny people up from school. Waiting at the endless Doctors, dentist and other appointment where I know they will be late. Insomnia seem to be winning in my life right now and I figured why should I just roll around my bed all night when I can read. Last but not least I have watched My little Pony and Frozen so many times I can singing every song and quote every line so I pull out my kindle while I cuddle and start to read. I take every opportunity to read because its the only time I get to escape from the stresses of the real world.
I was told from a young age I would never never read above a 3-5th grade level because of my sever learning disability. I love to read even though I don’t see pictures when I read and most of the time its just words on a page but those are words I feel when I read. When someone says your can’t just look them in the eye and say. “Watch Me because I can!”
Its not hard to find time to read. I find its the balancing act of giving everyone the right amount of time with mommy and mommy getting the right amount of me time.
Just a funny noted about my tiny people. My oldest is 8 and he was freezing to death this morning to the point he needed to wear a sweater and jacket because it was just so cold outside. I grew up in Southern Minnesota on the Iowa border where it was the flattest part of the state and I can talk about cold because it would be -65 for several weeks though out winter. So when I looked at the temperature gauge I couldn’t stop laughing it was 70 degree outside and he is freezing. Than I realized that when you summer is anywhere from 110-118 degrees 65-70 degrees is cold.
