One of the things about being a stay at home parent is you don't have an over abundance of "me" time. And two things that I really enjoy that have taken a hit with me are reading and writing. Which if you know me are really my bread and butter. I have been pushing hard for writing and editing gigs and writing for the NYC Dads group blog, but I have been very negligent with this blog. So, I know I have said it before but I am making a re-commitment to Great Moments in Bad Parenting*.
As far as reading, really who has the time if you don't commute somewhere, right? Recently I replace my old e-reader that Mrs. GMIBP had been using, after I may have over charged it and fried the circuit, with a Nook Simple Touch for each of us. I know that she will get way more use out of it than I will, but if I take time that would be spent watching TV or roaming Facebook to read I can get back into the swing of things.
I need to note that my OCD kicked in and I tried to re-format something in this post and now my review is in a weird font. I'm not internet shouting.
