Days that I have doctor appointments or some kind of procedure can be long and slow. And usually there's a wait involved! I always have a book or two with me, figuring that if I have to sit in my doctor's waiting room for a while, at least I can pass the time reading. No matter how long the wait is, I never managed to read that much! There are always distractions sitting in a doctor's waiting room. Inevitably, there's at least one yapper, talking loudly to anybody who will listen (actually whether anybody really listens I don't think matters!) to all their medical woes. They seem to miss the fact that most of the people in that room are patients with their own medical problems! More likely, they don't care! There's also always at least one person, regardless of how many signs are posted prohibiting cell phone use, either making or receiving a call on their cell phone while sitting in the middle of the waiting room. Not only do they disregard the signs, but they don't have the decency to go out into the hallway! Can' you tell I've been sitting in doctor's waiting rooms for years? I'm not complaining, though. Most of the time, it's pretty entertaining and interesting. And, I don't get a lot of reading accomplished!
I've been working on a blog for the cats and have started visiting other cat blogs to let them know about it. I still have some additions to make and things to figure out. I used Wordpress for the cats blog because Blogger has been giving me so many problems. Anna from Diary of an Eccentric gave me a lot of great information and hints about using wordpress. The blog header picture is Bob and the username for comments comes from our vets nickname for Bob, "BigSexyBob"! I haven't figured out exactly how to switch between accounts and usernames, so if anyone sees "BigSexyBob commenting on a post, it's just me not some strange person with weird ideas! When the cats blog is completely set up and working, I plan to post a link on this blog in case anyone wants to visit Bob and the other felines!
I'm reviewing A Jane Austen Education by William Deresiewicz tomorrow and Daughter of Fortune by Isabel Allende later in the week. My reading has slowed down a little bit in the last week, I've been feeling fatigued and not very enthused about anything. I think it's probably adjusting to the warmer weather and allergies. I'm reading Lives of Girls and Women by Alice Munro which I'm enjoying but I'm not sure what else to read. I received my Persephone catalog and will be ordering a few books next week. I might pick up Rosie by Anne Lamott. I received Skinny from author Diana Spechler which interests me. I also have several more reviews with TLC Book Tours in the next few months so I can always start one of those books....
Maybe I'll lie in the sun and get a start on a tan today!
I hope you enjoy your Sunday!
