Comments about this hour: These were not two good hours for reading.  The beginning of hour 4 I did a fair amount of blog surfing.  I finally got settled in to read, stopped to put on my bathing suit so I could read outside during hour 5, then read some more.  Towards the end of hour 4, my mom called, and that turned into a good 30 minute conversation about wedding stuff (I’ll be getting married in 14 days and 90 minutes).  When I came back to the computer to put up a slightly late post, I was having more problems with my blog.  There has been odd stuff going on from time to time with the forwarding situation since I moved to my own domain, and it was happening again!  That was frustrating and I spent about 25 minutes playing with it.  I think now we have it fixed, but that left me with only about 15 minutes of reading in the 5th hour. 

Now I’m off to do some cleaning, since my parents will be here Thursday and are staying with me, but don’t dispair! – I’ll be trying to finish my audio book of The Three Musketeers.

  • Great plan, to listen to your audiobook while you clean for company! I was going to listen to one while I hiked, but sadly, disc one of my audiobook has disappeared. We’re packing to move, and we can’t find anything!
