Reading Not Writing

15 11 2010

I have been meaning to write, but I am reading this and since I am ignoring housework, husband and children to do it, I should probably ignore my blog too, at least until I finish.

My husband was gone for five days last weekend and I had the kids all by myself.  It went very smoothly, but I was rundown and crabby when he got home on Monday.  So I said a quick hello, got in the car and went to the library BY MYSELF.  I brought home 12 books – adoption, parenting, new fiction and Ethiopia.

Please note, if you are looking to go to the library to relax and for a little pick-me-up you probably should NOT browse the “Africa” section… Darfur, Rwanda, the Congo… I walked out of the library way more depressed than I walked in.

In the end it was worth it.  Rebecca Haile (Held at a Distance) is entertaining me while teaching me things I did not know.  Oh, and I want to be her friend.  Any chance that you are reading this, Rebecca?

I took that book with me on my last trip to Ethiopia. But sadly it didn’t make it there. Well, it made it to Ethiopia but not off the plane. I left it in that damn seat thingy on the airplane.

THis is really funny. While I am not a friend of Rebecca’s my husband’s uncle is — he is even thanked in the acknowledgments! When we told him we were adopting from Eth. he sent us a copy! How funny!

By the way, I’m Meg and I blog at by-dirigible.blogspot.com. I somehow ended up here by way of one of the blogs I follow! I’m enjoying your posts!
