How do you read all the time?

I get that question all the time. I have friends who say it takes them weeks to finish 1 book while i average about 3 a week. No, i don't just let me kids run wild. I have this cage.....and i lock them there. Just kidding!! We don't pay for TV, so we only use an antenna. I dont really watch TV. So, while the kids are watching a movie or playing, i normally have a book in my hand. I spend my mornings cleaning and doing laundry. Then by the time i pick Ethan up at 2:30 we come home and have some time together. In the evenings, Alex usually watches something on TV and i have a book in hand. I admit, that if i am really into a book i might neglect my housework for a little while and just read. I guess the easiest way to explain it is, when someone else is normally watching TV on there down time, i am reading.

So, that really wasn't that complicated. It also helps that i am one of those readers that can block out noise. I don't need a quite room to concentrate. The only thing that might interfere with my concentration is if the TV is too loud. Ok, so for those who wanted to know, now you know. And if you didn't you know now anyway :o)

5 more days until my birthday ;o)
