When Matthew and I first got together, we used to read aloud to each other regularly, but we got out of the habit over the years. I'd forgotten how pleasant it is to share a story with the hubby like that. It's an excuse to turn off the television, slow down for an hour or so from our frenetic schedules, and just enjoy each others' company. Also, kinda romantic. Makes me want to make a real effort to reincorporate it as a regular part of our lives.
On the other hand, I've only been at it for two days, and my voice is already cracking. Would sort of defeat the purpose if I end up toad-with-cold-voiced before Dragon*Con. Sigh.
