Excuses

I'm having a hard time committing to a book. Here are my excuses:

1. The Olympics are on! And it's exciting! I haven't turned the TV on in forever, but lately I feel that my oxygen supply is somehow connected to the TV power being on and the channel tuned to either 5 or 99.

2. I'm experiencing some reading malaise. Girl with a Pearl Earring has temporarily killed my reading buzz. Since then I've tried to start 2 or 3 books and felt uninspired by them.

3. We are painting our bedroom this week and this takes a lot of my evening time up. Now I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, "Jill, didn't you just paint your bedroom like 2 weeks ago?" and I would answer, "Yes, yes I did." I might also add, "I SPEND MY WHOLE LIFE PAINTING AND REPAINTING ROOMS IN MY HOUSE!!!" This color seems to be a winner at least. That last color was baaaaad. One more night of touch ups and we should be able to sleep in our big kid bed again. This is a relief because sleeping in a double bed with Jeff and the cat? Not fun.

4. I just finally started a book that I think I can finish. It's called Daniel Isn't Talking and I borrowed it from the work library shelf. That said, see above reasons for why it might be a few more days (or even through the weekend) before I post a review.

Thank you for your patience.

I went through that in my kitchen. It started out dingy and white when we bought the house. Then it was mauve (seriously), then yellow, then white, now copper. All in a 6 month time span. I agree that one MUST have the right color for them.
