My Husband Is Made Of Awesome...

My husband knows how much I've been missing him. He knows that I from insomnia, living in the middle of nowhere-itis, and the wrath of two hyperactive children. I've done all I can do to keep myself busy. I mean really how much cleaning can I do? My DVR is cleaned out. I spend countless hours on the web at night reading blogs, playing on Pogo, and goofing around on Facebook.

I have faced facts, I am bored. So I complain. Call me Complain Jane, it won't hurt my feelings.

My husband takes my complaining pretty serious. "Happy wife=happy life" and all that.

He bought me a Kindle!!!

For those of you not hip to what a Kindle is here are the specs:

Display: 6″ diagonal E-Ink® electronic paper display, 600 x 800 pixel resolution at 167 ppi, 16-level gray scale.
Size (in inches): 8″ x 5.3″ x 0.36″.
Weight: 10.2 ounces.
System requirements: None, because it doesn’t require a computer.
Storage: 2GB internal (approximately 1.4GB available for user content).
Battery Life: Read on a single charge for up to 4 days with wireless on. Turn wireless off and read for up to two weeks. Battery life will vary based on wireless usage, such as shopping the Kindle Store and downloading content. In low coverage areas or in 1xRTT only coverage, wireless usage will consume battery power more quickly.
Charge Time: Fully charges in approximately 4 hours and supports charging from your computer via the included USB 2.0 cable.
Connectivity: EVDO modem with fallback to 1xRTT; utilizes Amazon Whispernet to provide U.S wireless coverage via Sprint’s 3G high-speed data network (check wireless coverage). See Wireless Terms and Conditions.
USB Port: USB 2.0 (micro-B connector) for connection to the Kindle power adapter or optionally to connect to a PC or Macintosh computer.
Audio: 3.5mm stereo audio jack, rear-mounted stereo speakers.
Content Formats Supported: Kindle (AZW), TXT, Audible (formats 4, Audible Enhanced (AAX)), MP3, unprotected MOBI, PRC natively; PDF, HTML, DOC, JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP through conversion.
Included Accessories: Power adapter, USB 2.0 cable, rechargeable battery. Book cover sold separately.
The Amazon Kindle 2 is now available from Amazon for $259.

Basically it's an electronic book reader. That means when I can't sleep and its 2am, the kids are sleeping and I've just finished my last book, I just pick one off a list and within 60 seconds I'm back to reading.

Did I tell you I love my husband?
