I haven't read as planned this weekend. Yesterday my cats had their bi-annual comp exam. Tuxcedo is not happy when he has to go the vet and requires a sedative just so his doctor can examine him. Needless to say, after the sedative wears off it leaves him feeling miserable, irritable and very combative towards his sister, Dominoe. It's my job to play referee and make sure they stay in their respective corners (easier said than done). Meanwhile, during his loopy state, Tuxcedo loves to explore. Last year, I turned my back for a second and found him on top of my refrigerator!! Yesterday, he was determined to get on top of my TV. So as you can imagine, nothing gets done on vet appointment days. I finally got both to settle down and curl up with me. But by then, I was too tired to do much of anything.
Today, I'm happy to report they are back to being friends, chasing each other all over my house and sitting next to each other on my couch (or as I call it planning what they can get into next). Pets are wonderful, aren't they? So since they are in a much happier place, I can return to my reading plans. (Let's face it, they run things in my house and I've just come to accept it.)
I attempted to start Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver yesterday, but found myself easily distracted. Today I plan to begin again and read it for most of the afternoon. I've read great reviews about this book, so I want to allow myself to become fully immersed in the story. Up next will be The Bride Collector by Ted Dekker and Love in Mid Air by Kim Wright, both for upcoming blog tours.
For those of you who have an iPhone and Goodreads account, there's a newly released iPhone app! And. . . it's free! It comes at a good time. Usually when I'm at the library, I can never think of books I want to check out. So, I've decided to create a shelf on my Goodreads account to list those books. I'm still learning about the app, but so far I really like it.
Happy Sunday everyone.
