What a time for it to come back

For years I used to read a book in about a day and a half. The reason why my 'library' is so huge is because I could read that fast and it's full of books I whipped through in no time. But for the past couple of years my reading has slowed considerably. It's not surprising with everything, but it did bother me. I kept buying books - almost at a frentic pace - knowing they wouldn't get read for a long while. But in the past 3 days I've read 3 books - something I haven't done in a very long time. But the trouble is - I don't have time to do it now! I have to get ready to leave first thing Tuesday morning. There is all kinds of things I have yet to do, but all I want to do is read!
So - hopefully I'll be able to put the book down and at least wash my clothes, get my suitcase packed, get the garbage out, feed the cat, clean out the litter box, call the airport, call for a cab, clean the house, turn the air conditioner way down, pluck my eyebrows (andmychinhairseww) etc, etc,

Going back to the book now, I'll do those things in a few minutes. Right after I blog hop for a bit.
Procastination - *sigh*

'til later

Damn. I would consider it a miracle cure ;) Is Arthur going cat sit?

LOL - no, Brent is coming over every day to check on Zina. It's on his way home from work and since he's a cat lover too - I figured he'd be the best one to cat sit/

It's the whole process of getting ready to go somewhere. I always want to be doing something other than get ready for the trip. I'm excited too because Wendy has promised to come back and tell me all about the happenings. Which doesn't let you off the hook for giving us your version. Have fun!
