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 :).
