I've been listening..... a lot of books on tape lately. Now wait - there is a perfectly logical explanation for this. I've been doing a lot of driving, you see, and I really enjoy a break from radio now & then.

The only problem is, every time I get out of the car, I find myself narating my actions. Only in my head, thank goodness. But still, I can't seem to stop and I'm getting concerned.

But I probably won't stop listening to books on tape. I'm completely hooked. See what happens when you are forced to give up alcohol and nicotine? It's not pretty folks.

I've decided....

...that now might be a good time fo rme to try to pick up a new language. I'm planning on buying some "Learn-To-Speak" on cd so I can listen to them in the car. I was thinking German, although that's not very practical. Maybe Spanish. Or Japanese.

I also decided I really need to get back to writing. I'm going to branch out from just blogging, to maybe working on some short stories and essays.

Since I will hopefully be bringing my premature baby home from the hospital this week, it seemed like a wise idea to add something else to my plate.
