Life as I know It...



I really do not know what is with me this month, but I am afraid everyone is going to forget about me, so I am trying this whole posting thing again! Seeing as how a blog is for posting and my blog has received little to no attention this month. I am just happy that it is because life has been good and I am busy that I have so little time for blogging and reading this month, it is much better than the alternative! Hopefully I will do a bit better job at keeping in touch in February. My TBR pile is really suffering from this month. I just finished my fourth book of the month earlier tonight! For some of you, that is a good thing, but for me, it is really weird!

I have accomplished other things this month, though... I bought new clothes, which I really needed to do because my wardrobe was a bit faded; I got sneakers that are like the most comfortable things ever and do not hurt my feet at all, which is an awesome thing for me; I rearranged my bookshelves except for one shelf; I managed to not buy any books at all so far this month; I ended a very bad relationship with a guy that means well, but was not really for me; I reconnected with some friends that I have not talked to in ages; I have a social life and have been doing things for my age group, something that my boyfriend was never interested in doing, so I have really missed it; and I have done a lot more... So, reading-wise, not my best month, but I have done a lot of things that I have been putting off for forever and a day, so I am really happy with myself!

I love how I sort of just added the boyfriend thing in there like it was no big deal... I was with him for quite some time, so it is a big deal! It is probably the biggest thing to come out of 2008 so far, and partly to blame for my lack of reading. I find that if I am idle too long, me and him tend to start talking again and then I fall into the same trap, so I have been latching on to my friends lately so I am kept busy and don't do that again. I love to read, but it doesn't keep me occupied enough at times, and then my mind starts wandering. A wandering mind is a bad thing.

So, if I am quiet for the rest of the month, you know what is going on. It is not that I do not like blogging or reading anymore, it is just that I need to keep busy! I am sure everyone understands. I also suck at blog-hopping, but I am trying!

Anyways, so once again, I am alive! And, I do check my email everyday, if nothing else, so if you need my attention for whatever reason, that is the best way to get in touch.

    It sounds like, although it may be difficult, breaking up was the right thing to do. So...keep busy, have fun and take your time! We'll be right here when you get back.

  6. Reconnecting with a part of yourself that's been submerged is fantastic. Sorry to hear that things didn't work out with your boyfriend, but glad to hear you've made the right step.

  7. I'll still be here. But I'm kind of laughing because I said I'd comment more often, but now you're posting less. hehe :P

    Glad all is well with you.

  9. It sounds like you are on the right track and have been making some good decisions. Book bloggers will still be here, but life is what's immediate.

  10. Fear not, no one is going to forget about you. I'm sorry you're going through stuff eventhough it sounds like you've made the right decision for yourself. Look forward to things settling back down and seeing you around more frequently. Until then don't stress about not posting regularly.

  13. We would never forget about you! I actually thought about tagging you for the meme, myself, but I knew how busy you have been.

Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

I am so sorry, but I turned anonymous commenting off. I have had it from the very beginning, but that is how the spam is getting by my spam filter at the moment. If it is a big deal I will turn it back on and moderate all comments. I also changed moderation from older than 14 days to older than 7.
