I truly thought that I could spend Tuesday reading, but family, friends, neighbors and responsibility constantly interrupted me. I know the laundry must be done (especially if I want to wear clean clothes), dishes must be cleaned (isn’t this why we have paper plates?), the carpet must be vacuumed (okay I don’t have anything against this one because yuck – dirty carpet), and guests must be entertained. It would have been rude to ignore the necessity of household chores, the ringing doorbell, phone calls, emails and texts simply because I wanted to read, wouldn’t it? Perhaps I’ll be able to spend at least a few hours reading today, that is if I don’t have to deal with more of life’s little interruptions.
