Yesterday at lunch we were having some leftover cake. Aaron of course only ate the icing. I think that's typical of a lot of kids. It's my favorite part too. I was saying that maybe we would just make him icing for his birthday. This is what he said:

"mom, for my birthday I want a cake with no bottom"

And then I laughed.

Warning: reading is bad for your housework

So it turns out I enjoy reading. I used to read, a long time ago. It's not that I don't know how to read, I just find that watching the movie is faster.

Tiffany suggested a series of books. Said they were nice and fluffy and easy to read. We were at the literacy program at the library on Wednesday and she went and found the first book and forced me to sign it out. Okay, maybe she didn't force me. I took the book home and started reading. I read just over half the book that day. Thursday I finished the book. Even bought something nice and easy to make for supper so I wouldn't have to tear myself away from my book for too long. Friday I returned the book and signed out the next two in the series.

It must be my old age. That's all I can figure.

Problem with reading is that not much gets done when you're into a good book. Who wants to clean the bathroom anyway?

So if you don't read, I recommend it.
