I really miss reading. It has always been a big part of me. I feel like something is missing without reading. When I read I get to go to a different place. For even a few moments I get to live outside of my life. I can be part of a wedding planning group in the Nora Robberts stories, or I can live a romance in any of Nicholas Sparks North Carolina based books. I can re-read Summer Sisters by Judy Bloom again and pretend I am 17 hanging out with my BFF. Now Nicholas Sparks is coming out with a new book, "Best of Me" on October 11th and I still haven't gotten the chance to read his two previous books. I'm going to try to read some while TJ naps. Maybe I'll start feeling more like me again, and not just like TJ's mom. Here's to being the best me I can be.
