Yesterday, as I was lying in bed going into my second hour of playing Best Fiends (don't do it, it's addictive and a time suck!) I realised something.
The two months in the US, caring for Steve's dad while be was ill and almost died, the hospital trips (twice), the transition care trips (twice), and helping mom out and transporting her around daily because she no longer drives, really took an emotional toll on both Steve and I. Our emotional tanks are empty, so to speak. Both Steve and I are both sitting on empty on our emotional tanks. :-( Steve's gotten addicted to Bejeweled Blitz!
It is taking us so long to get back into the swing of things. Plus we hit the ground running being back home since we were away for so long. There was a lot of stuff that had piled up which we needed to catch up on.
Anyway, the whole point of this is while I am disappointed I'm not reading as much (and I really want to!), I recognise that I'm not in the right mind space for it at the moment. I'm going to be kind to myself and not beat myself up about it (I've been doing that a bit and feeling guilty about all the review books getting backlogged!).
Here's hoping December will be a better month.
Both books were good reads for me this month though there were only two reads. I enjoyed both of them very much. I do have a review for Match Fit posted if you're interested in reading it. It's a fun story. The review for Captive will be up soon.
Stay tuned for Helen's reading list for the month too.
What did you read for this month? Do leave a comment and let me know.
