Light Reading for 3rd Trimester Insomnia

Posted in Uncategorized at 2:13 pm by bitsypieces

So I’ve been battling a bit of 3rd trimester insomnia (most nights I get to see it slowly grow light outside). Since TV at 3AM tends to be a bore, I often crawl into bed with some light reading (which probably contributes to my insomnia… but I never claimed to be perfect).

For the last few nights I’ve been re-reading the Tightwad Gazette books. Those who are old hands at frugality have probably already read these classic tomes… and much of the advice is of a been-there-done-that nature. Nonetheless, I always find them inspirational. Amy Dacyczyn took her tightwaddery to a level that I will never achieve… partly because of laziness, partly because of squeamishness, and partly because of convenience. It’s great fun to read about all the ways she managed to save 43% of their income a year.

And now, with Hubby going through some job problems, it’s more important than ever.

    Get use to the tv shows at 3am. You are going to get to know them real well while you are nursing. We ordered HBO for 3 months and received show time for free – but there were never any good movies on at 3am so we cancelled it.
