Hi Claire,
It was only a few years ago that I was able to get back to reading more. Years ago I would always have a book in my hand, or at least within reach. But then we had another youngin' (our soon to be 6 year old) & life just got so busy & hectic that I slowed way down on the reading. I'm still super busy, & some days I may just get a half a page read, but because I love reading so much I am finding times to do it. :) Even if it's a page a day, although I'd prefer it to be more. :)

Leann! That was awesome! LOL I LOVED the way you worded that! It tickled my funny bone. You hit the nail on the head. LOL
