I came home with my little miracle last Sunday and this week has proved one thing: I have some adjusting to do to juggle the duties of a new parent, the daily chores – even if my husband is tremendously helping with both – and my hobbies.
It’s safe to say I will need to spend less time reading more time resting because unlike his cousins, who slept through the night from day 2 or 3, Calvin seems intent on being awake most nights from 11pm midnight till 4 o’clock. I guess I’ll have to tell my brother he was lucky with his daughters.
Anyway, it’s an even bigger change than I imagined and I’m a bit too tired to tackle one book per week let alone write a decent review. It probably doesn’t help that the book I’m reading right now A Suitable Boy is more than 1200 pages filled with so many cultural and historical elements that are mostly alien to me and as such require a closer reading than something I’m already familiar with.
So at least for the next little while – might be a couple of months or six who knows? – I will review a book every two weeks. I’m hoping it might give me some time to write a bit more too and return to some prompts that I enjoy a lot like the Wordle Mondays and Tale Weaver Thursdays from Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie and Linda G Hill’s stream of consciousness Saturdays.
Hopefully I can do that, which I haven’t been able to in a couple of months due t exhaustion. And it’s only starting I can hear you parents tell me 😉😉. Wish me luck.
