Follow Friday (4)


Q. What do I do when I are not reading?


A. Well, this is definitely a hard one.  I work fulltime, commute 1.5 hours per day, am a husband and father.  There’s always, ALWAYS a load of laundry that needs to be washed, dried, and folded, a kid that needs to be comforted or held…So, what do I do when I’m not reading…A LOT!!! :)


What do you do?


Many Adventures,



*Follow Friday is a weekly blog-hop hosted by Parajunkee*


  1. I'm impressed by what you all accomplish in a day. I'm your newest follower and would love for you to visit me when you can.


  2. Well at least you have an awesome wife that takes care of your meals...and the dishes.

  3. Hi Richard! I'm getting tired just reading about your day....
    Have a fun weekend with your family.

  4. New follower here. I used to have that kind of commute. In many ways, I miss the job, but then I remember the work place politics and I feel better. Happy hopping!

  11. Hi!
    Just hopping by and following through.
    My husband does the laundry (mainly) in my house as well - with the six of us we do about 7 loads every weekend


  12. I know what you mean. Working full-time and a parent too. Don't you just wish there were 8 days in a week?

  17. New follower! That is the kind of commute I have to look forward to here soon, yay for me right? LOL And heaven knows there's always laundry and dishes to do.

  18. Hi! I'm new to #FF, but have a happy friday and have a great weekend! New follower
    Check out my #FF www.thefictionfairy.com

  19. New follower here for the hop.
    I can understand the feeling. I also work full-time, I am married and have three boys. people often wonder how I find time to read...

  20. I wish I could find a job! But since I'm still tipping the scale to "young teenager," I really don't think that it's going to happen anytime soon! x)

    I actually love doing the laundry, though! Out of all the chores I have to do, that one is my favourite (my least being doing the dishes).

    Reading is the coolest thing ever ;)

    Hope you have an awesome weekend!


  21. I am about to start a job with a longer commute. I am hoping that I can figure out a way to take public transportation which could give me more time to read (which seems so much better than driving I think). :)


  22. I love the fact that you do laundry! Hi. Just stopping by. Following you from Follow My Book Blog Friday Blog Hop. Would love a visit and a follow back on my blog: http://blog.writerslairbooks.com. Thanks! Nice to meet you!

  23. thanks for all the comments!

    @bookdout: i try to do 1 load a day, wash and dry.

    @lina: i don't wish for 8 days/week! that would just be one more day i'd have to work! lol...unless it was a mandatory vacation day!

    @nikki & @shanan: audiobooks rule the commute!

    @liza: i know how you feel...fitting in reading is a must! usually after everything else is done and the kids are in bed!

    @mimi: i hate doing dishes! even after we got a dishwasher i still hate it!

    @shana: nice to meet you, too!
