Keeping Busy(er)

So, it's been two full days now since I stepped away from and shut down my Facebook page. What I quickly realized was that I tried to compensate by reading articles online, mostly celebrity news. Nothing of interest and certainly nothing of value, so I'm going to have to quit that, as well. To help myself, I bought a book while doing a little window shopping at Target. 

I NEVER buy books for myself (A--because we don't have the space on our tiny bookshelf and B--because it seems absurd to spend $20 on a book I could check out at the library.), but I made an exception. It looked and sounded so interesting, and I justified the expense because it's Sunday and our library wasn't open. So. 

I'm about 50 pages in so far, and it's pretty good. I'm looking forward to reading it while I have down time (but not at night before bed because I will finish it WAY too quickly, and I need this baby to last!)

While looking around in the book section (my favorite part of the whole store, fyi), I saw this, and I decided to splurge and get it for Jack (Ella will enjoy it at some point, too.). 
He LOVED it tonight when The Husband read it to him before bed while I nursed Ella. The excitement and joy just poured out of him while he listened and followed the instructions. It was very cute to watch. If you have a toddler (2-4 year old), I highly recommend it. 

So that's it for today.  Here's hoping you're still sticking to any resolutions you might have made :). 


  1. I used to really enjoy celebrity gossip, when I was in my teens and early twenties. Now, it exhausts me. I'm not sure what changed... if it's that the people I used to keep tabs on are all dead/gone thanks to overdoses, old age, illness or bowing out of the spotlight... or if the current "it" crowd is just somehow "worse" and more annoying. Most of the time, when someone is trending on major sites, I read the headline and have no clue who that is. Is that an age thing? Or maybe I reached a point in my life where I don't have the mental and emotional energy to spare on people I don't know? I can't tell you how many times I sit there going "Who...?" with no desire to click on the link and find out. Life is weird... I guess we're always growing up on one way or another.


    1. I think it's a combination of all of those things for me. Plus, when I was young and unmarried, I used to love reading about celebrity weddings and new babies. Now that I'm in the thick of it, and although I still enjoy seeing cute babies, haha, I don't have that desire anymore. It's just a habit that I got into. None of it is truly of interest to me.

  2. I understand. I never used to boether with it, til a close friend started sharing posts and web pages with me that she perused daily. That's when it all started to make my head hurt- especially the criticism coming from some of the writers. My mom cleans house for an older lady who subscribes to some of the gossip magazines. She passes them on to my mom when she's read them, and mom gives them to me. I usually toss them right in the recycling bin, because I'm just not interested, plus, there were magazines I quit reading a long time ago, because the cologne and perfume sample inserts made my head hurt and upset my stomach. These magazines don't contain samples, but the memory is still there. Ugh.


  3. Enjoy your book! Sometimes I will click on an article about a celebrity that I know, but mainly the new "It" crowd does not interest me! Love you.
