Never Enough

In 2005 I read 62 books. That's right - SIXTY-TWO books. 62 delicious, enveloping, titillating, humorous, enlightening, thought-provoking, educational, inspirational, smut-filled, humility-inspiring, wonderful books.

In the process, my house is not really all that clean. Wiped but not scrubbed. Picked up but not dusted off. Put away but not organized.

Projects wait patiently in a queue for me to turn my literary-ily fogged gaze their way.

How many more games could I have played with my children? How many more trips to the park? How many more books could I have read to THEM?

Sixty-two. Way too many.

Still not enough.
