Today I was talking to MS, dscussing our mutual dissatisfaction with our lifes, bemoaning our fates. During the course of the conversation we were throwing ideas around, how to shake things up, get things going, etc. One of her suggestions was that we don't read anything for a week, instead spend that time doing something creative or just thinking. I was so totally freaked out by that suggestion -- so much of my day is spent reading, whether it's a book, magazine, newspaper or websites, I couldn't even entertain that thought. It would be easier for me to give up TV or breathing for that matter. I could see the point she was making, but actually do it? Never.
We actually came up with a plan--more on that later.
And speaking of books, I'm almost finished with one of the best books I've ever read in my life. IN. MY. LIFE. That's alot of books people. If you haven't already, run, don't walk, to your nearest bookstore or library and pick up a copy of "Eat Pray Love" by Elizabeth Gilber. You will not be sorry. Then let me know what you thought.
