You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.'

You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

Eleanor Roosevelt

To Read Or Not To Read..That Is The Question

One of the reasons I can't accomplish anything is that I am being pulled in too many directions. If this sounds like an excuse well it is.  About the time that I committed to Finally Finishing I also committed to my 11 year old grandson Dylan that I would read all the Harry Potter books with him and then we would watch the movies and discuss. Well, I can't seem to read and do everything else on my "to do list". Dylan has finished HarryPotter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, book 3 in the Harry Potter Series while I tag along on  page  301.Tired of waiting for me to catch up he has since
started book 4 Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and  already on page 150 or so of an almost 800 page book. (Apparently he doesnt' know of my 300 page limit on any book I read)  So If I seem a bit sluggish finishing my promise of the third and final scarf from my last post  it is because I am reading every night until my eyes bleed. I can not face him again and admit once more that "no, I have not finished my book yet"

I don't know if it is disbelief or disgust I see in his eyes but since I can't find the cliff notes to this book, "come hell or high water" as they say I will finish
 the book today !
