Why I haven't been blogging....or excuses, excuses, excuses :)

I just feel busy.

I have been spending more time walking Bella, training Bella....boy the book I read on Airedales was right...their "puppy stage" is a lot longer than other breeds.

The school always seems to beckon...
today there was an "emergency" for proof reading the cook book that the PTA is getting together.  Granted, it was supposed to be ready by December...didn't happen, and therefore I had to scramble for a few Christmas presents.
So, I rush there to help out.  I sit down, we giggle a little about some of the translations...i.e., for a Chicken Pot Pie, there is the "dough" and the "feeling"....
yes, meant to be "filling"...hahaha
but then we stopped proof reading about 15 minutes after I got there, because they weren't even sure if we had the right copies to proofread.  
Get it together people!  I am BUSY!!

I am trying to exercise....
not going well, but I promise I am going swimming tomorrow morning!  It has been way to long that I have been out of a pool....almost since Venezuela where we swam with a swim team, intensively, 3 days a week!

Then there is the usual mundane chores:
make the beds, sweep the floor, clean the dishes (yes Virginia, there is no automatic dishwasher in my apartment), oh yea, and 

Tomorrow is book club, or as I like to call...traveling library!  It is so much fun and I always seem to get great recommendations, especially from Gabriela!
Yesterday afternoon I started Sarah's Key.... great book.  I finished in less than 24 hours! Then there was The Book Thief , The Alchemist and The Thirteenth Tale.  Really, they were all great books.  
Two of them (the first 2 listed above) happened to be about different aspects of children in Nazi Germany.  They were sad stories, but so good..
plus I saw the movie, The Reader...again about Nazi Germany...
I am very happy that Kate Winslet won best actress.  It was a good movie!

So, that's where I have been/what I have been doing...
I know, probably boring to all of you, mundane to anyone else besides me...
but I just thought I would let you all know!

Well... it is just mundane and we all have that.

By the way, I just got home from RJ and what a beautiful weather today.

Sounds like life. Just normal busy life and that is good. It was interesting to me and thanks for sharing your life with us!

Busy, for sure! I wish I could swim more....I love the way my body feels in is not so jarring as trying to jog, The Alchemist is one of the few books that remain on my shelf, along with the fictions of Jorge Luis Borges! d.

Hey Sis!
Same here, seems April was such a hectic month full of "To Do's ". Then there were just those blogless moments, I have just learned to just accept the times when I can't blog and not feel guilty when I can't. Beside we do have a life lol..

Luv Ya Lorie

Better busy than bored.
Puppy training, uh, I'm glad that's done ;) But I have to keep the training up with mine every day or the big boy thinks he's the boss ;)

Am reading a lot too, read about three books in 5 days ;)

And I replied to your comment over at my Site.
No worries about different opinions.

No this is not mundane at all. It is fun to read about what you have been up to. I wish I had more time to read!
