Greetings all.
I am new to blogging, but have been writing for years.
This site is still under construction, so please be patient, and please do vist.

My Boss went on vacation and took three books with her to read.  She gave them to me when she returned, offering them up as a tantalizing treat to her poor book-barren assistant.  Now the three sit there, daring me to read them, but I dare not.  She knows I do not have the time, not yet anyway.  Serious work projects are in the way--projects she gave me.  If I start reading, I will not stop.  I am an  addict, I confess.  Addicted to the printed word.  I am a binge reader.  If I start a book I will not stop until waaaaaay past time to sleep, eat, bathe....thank the heavens my sweet spouse has the same addiction.  We are co-enablers of our worst vice.
I am so tempted.  It is only the hesitancy of being unable to decide which of the three to start first that keeps me focused on my which I must now return.  Instead of binging on the book, like scarfing down the whole pan of brownies in one sitting, I wrote here instead, like a sensible snack of apple slices with a small wedge of cheddar cheese. 
But the brownie-books are still tempting me.
