Happy Superbowl Sunday! I am so looking forward to the yummy food and the funny commercials. I have no idea who is playing – but apparently, a lot of you don’t either. I’m so glad I didn’t alienate anyone with this confession on yesterday’s post.
Somehow, the hubs and I are staying home for the first time ever and we aren’t having anyone over, either. This works out perfectly for me so now I can actually ignore the game while I work on report cards (yeah, right), blog stalk, and read. I will only tune in to the commercials. I also get to stay in my pjs! The hubby is making his delicious-and-very-bad-for-you-award-winning-amongst-our-friends-and-family fried crunchy tacos. Bring on the guac and salsa and maybe I will have a glass of wine later in the day. The only thing that could make this day a tad bit better is if we had tomorrow off. One of my friends told me that her husband always gets the Monday after Superbowl off. What? How can we get in on this action?
My friend and mentor, Kimberly at Funky First Grade Fun, is having a linky party! Yes! Just what I needed. I am anxiously awaiting Farley’s Currently linky so this will definitely give me my fix. 🙂 It’s all about What Do You Love? in honor of Valentine’s Day. I LOVE it. I HEART it. I want to marry it.
I do have to say I loved traveling to Europe and Jamaica, but honestly, I love to go to Texas to see Kerry and the kids. I look forward to it every year. We have the BEST TIME every time. If she moved to Alaska or Reno or Timbuktu, I’d say the same thing.
By the way, I had a couple of comments about what I’m reading. I didn’t mean to start three books at the same time. It just happened. In the same way that I never mean to watch all of the reality TV that I watch, but then they show marathons and reruns and I have no choice. It just happens. Through no fault of my own. Really. Stop looking at me like that.
I started by reading “Here, Home, Hope” by Kaira Rouda for $2.99 on my Kindle. It’s good. I am enjoying it.
Then my friend brought me two books: The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein and the Jaycee Dugard memoir.
I picked up The Art of Racing in the Rain just to look. Now I’m about half way through. It’s downstairs so that’s where I read that book.
I also picked up the Jaycee Dugard book because it was upstairs in my bedroom, and the other book was downstairs and I was just too tired to click open the book on my Kindle that was on the nightstand. That’s why I had to sleep for eleven hours. I was just too tired to turn on my Kindle. So I started reading the Jaycee story because there no was turning on to be had. I did have to pick up the hefty weight of it and turn the page, but I was able to stay awake to do that. Anyways, it is way too sad to read a lot of at one time. So I have to stop, or otherwise I am just too sad. So then I either read the Kindle book or the Dog book (The Art of Racing in the Rain is told from a dog’s point of view—I knew Sydney understood what I was saying!!). And that’s how reading three books happened.
They’re all good. I’ve just never in my life read three books at the same time before. It’s surprisingly not a problem. Like I said, I do attribute this new found super power ability to blog stalking. It’s much the same.
Well, I’m off to read what everyone else loves. What Do You Love? Stop by Kimberly’s blog to join the party — especially if you’re not into football, either. 🙂
