It Is Cold

Nine degrees today and there's no warmth in my immediate future, either.  How is a girl from Texas supposed to keep herself warm?

Step 1: Put on the slippers that Meghan gave me for Christmas and curl up in front of the fire.

Step 2: Discuss winter getaway to warm places with Michael.  Mexico?  Caribbean?  The debate is still on.

Step 3: Grab a book to read by the fire whilst wearing aforementioned slippers.  My current book is "The Finder" by Colin Harrison.  I have a pile of 5 books on my bedside table, all waiting to take their turn in the the winter rotation.

Which reminds me of another resolution of sorts that I'd like to make (because if I declare it here, it becomes official and I must do it).  Read more books than I did in 2009.  These are the books I read last year that I will be competing with in 2010:

1. The Abstinence Teacher - Tom Perrotta*
2. The Road - Cormac McCarthy
3. Flowers for Algernon - Daniel Keyes*
4. Twilight - Stephanie Meyer
5. New Moon - Stephanie Meyer
6. Eclipse - Stephanie Meyer*
7. Breaking Dawn - Stephanie Meyer
8. The Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins*
9. The House of Mondavi - Julia Flynn Siler
10. Lord of the Flies - William Golding
11. Playing for Pizza - John Grisham
12. The Almost Moon - Alice Sebold
13. Loving Frank - Nancy Horan
14. Catching Fire - Suzanne Collins*
15. Best Friends Forever - Jennifer Weiner
16. Firefly Lane - Kristin Hannah

So it'll have to be that many plus one this year.  Maybe I should turn off god awful Spider Man and get to it.

*Books I loved and would highly recommend.  Looks like I should also try and read better books.



  1. Those slippers are cute! Where are they from, because I need some adult slippers. I still use my monkey face ones, and I don't think an almost 26 year old should still wear things with monkey faces on them.

  2. I still wear my Bugs Bunny ones and I am 30. They are from the Gap.
