The Inheritance (mostly for women only)

My husband referred to this you-tube in church thinking I had posted it. In fact, my bff Joy had it posted on her blog.

The nightstand.


One of my favourite things to do is read.  I love it.  As far back as I can remember, I've loved reading.  Possibly because I lived in the country, with no playmates that lived close by.  We had to "make our own fun", and "back then" (HA!!) there was not near the amount of 'entertainment' (if that's what you want to call it) as we have now.  (seriously! people.  How many ps2/xbox/wii systems does one need??)

Okay.  So I'm 'killing' myself here.  
I'm thinking of a long post about 'you know you're getting old when'.

Back to the reading.

I spent most of my teenage years with my nose in a book. More so romance fiction than anything else.  I love a "good 'ole" Amish read.  Reading is an escape for me.  A hideaway into someone elses' life and experiences.  
Now, I don't allow myself near as much time as I would like.
Mainly because there are so many 'other' things that need to be accomplished, and partly because I'm a very impatient reader.  Once I start, I DO NOT want to quit.  Pacing a book has never been a good quality of mine.  And with 3 children, a husband, an outside-of-the-home job, and a home to look after.  
Well, you get the point?
I do, however, spend a small amount of each day reading.

Here is my nightstand today.



 
How about you? Do you read?  What's on your nightstand?

Fans...


 I treated my 6yr old to the new 'Hannah Montana' movie for having a great report card. 



 I was made to squeeeeeze into my 11yr old, next door neighbours, t-shirt.  
(ummm..mom?  How are you going to get that off?)





 While wearing said t-shirt we had the paparazzi taking numerous pictures.






 We had a blast.


And then we came home to repeated lessons to learn the "hoedown throwdown".
