Then life happened.
3 more kids. My husband entered residency. Many hours and hours of hard work. And I let life get in the way of my little Reading Spot.
Fast forward 8 years:
We are now a family of 7. We also live with my father-in-law as we build a medical practice (so that makes 8). I don’t know how to cook for 2. I cook for at least 12 so we have leftovers. I work part time jobs and run kids from one activity to another. But I still read.
Almost a year ago one of my sisters got me hooked on running. Since then I’ve ran two 5Ks, one 10K and one half. My second half marathon will be this summer. I am not a fast runner. But I am a runner.
In 2014 I set a goal to myself to read 100 books. I blogged about them every month on our family blog. I didn’t know if I could really finish 100 books. But I did. This year my goal is to read 52. I feel like a little bit of a slacker only reading 52 after 100. But it is what it is.
I’m excited to give this a new try.
