I love, love, love to multi-task! Here’s what I’ve been doing while reading Kiersten White’s stellar first novel, Paranormalcy.
Getting on the treadmill is always more rewarding if you’re looking forward to the next chapter. I haven’t fallen off the treadmill yet…although my little boy told me this morning that I should really wear a helmet if I’m going to walk and read. Sad, but true.
Off to the park! Did you know you can read and push the swing at the same time? Being a “good mom” can be really entertaining. (Lots of sunblock. We wouldn’t want the screen to fade!)
Folding laundry doesn’t seem nearly so dreary with Evie’s snarky dialogue.
Soccer practice flies-by. Too bad I actually had to get off my duff to play goal keeper. Evie just couldn’t cut it. Perhaps it’s because she doesn’t have Tasey with her…or a third-dimension.
And yes, there is Dr. Pepper in that sippy cup. Sometimes “good mom” is hard for me.
And now Paranormalcy is motivating me to finish my manuscript. Evie said, I really, really need to rewrite that make-out-in-the-park scene.
Thanks Kiersten for the fun contest on your blog!
I’d love a hard copy of Paranormalcy to add to my library.
