Baths and Books about Deployments

Last night Sean took his first bath like a big boy in the tub. I am sure you are wondering how my 10.5 month old was bathing prior to this. When Sean was a little baby, we found it easiest to bath the boys together in our large soaking tub, but since that tub is so large, I would get in the tub with the boys. So I've been having to get in the tub every time I bath the boys for the past 10 months. Last night I decided to move the boys to the regular tub and bath just the two of them. It was a lot easier for me not having to get in the tub, and the boys seemed to really enjoy it. They are so cute playing together these days, but they are growing up too fast.

I'm currently reading a book, and I don't really like it. There are things about it that annoy me. It is a book about a woman going through her first deployment. I imagine I would like it more if I were preparing for deployment the first time, or if this were our first deployment that we are going through now. But as a seasoned military wife on our third deployment, I just am not all that interested in the woe is me and complaints I am reading in the book. Deployments suck, but they are part of the military wife life. I try not to dwell on the deployment, but rather just move through it. I just don't think I'm going to enjoy reading this book right now, but I hate to quit reading books once I start. Should I continue reading it to finish it, or just hide it and move on to better books?

Life is to short to waste on something that is not fun, inspirational, or informative.Give your self permission to pass and find something upbeat to pass this by.

Definately don't keep reading! You can devote your time to something you enjoy! Like stamping!

I'm like you, I usually have to finish a book if I start it, BUT I'm getting better. If a book is really bad I can stop reading. There are way too many good books out there to waste time with the bad ones.
