Why You Should Never "Loan" Me Books

So, I meant to do the 30 Day Reflection Challenge everyday, but last week was a bit stressful, so here I am to do the few days I missed all in one post. As a reminder, I've joined the blog Pretty Random Thing's 30 Days of Reflection.

And here is what I missed!

A Picture of a Photo in Your Room

Photo of Me and My Two Brothers as Babies. I'm in the middle!

This is actually part of a collage that my mom made! It's a photo of me and my two older brothers as babies and I'm in the middle. And yes, I'm eating cake for the first time. Hee hee...

A Photo of Something Green

The ironic thing about this is that I really didn't know what to choose for this photo. I thought about my green Tigger sweatshirt, but it needed to be washed, so that was out. And I really don't have a lot of green around my room that has significance. I did have a green ring that my mom gave me, but I lost it...and then I looked out the window:

The view outside my window

This is the apartment complex I live and this is my view. Isn't it incredible? Ahh the green of Oregon. This photo doesn't nearly do justice of the amount of green that I see on a regular basis and for that I am so grateful.

A Photo of Something You Borrowed From Someone Else

This book - The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks - is one I borrowed from a friend of mine in high school. This is also an example of why it's a very bad idea to loan me books. I think she gave this to me when I was 18 and I'm 25 now. The likelihood of my friend getting this back is slim to none. (Sorry Leticia)

A Photo of Your Favorite Piece of Jewelry

I have had this ring (the one in the middle) since graduating high school which is a record for me since I have a terrible habit of losing jewelry. It's my birthstone and it would be even cooler if I hadn't managed to lose the other jewel in the ring. 

Have you ever "borrowed" a book from a friend and never returned it? Which book was it? Was it worth keeping?


  1. I haven't borrowed a book but I did borrow a pair of tongs. They fell apart a couple of months ago. I borrowed them in 1998 from a used to be neighbor. I've since moved like 5 counties away.

    1. All because of a pair of tongs? :P

    2. You GO Shelly! You move several miles away to avoid returning them to tongs. I'm in a different state than the person I loaned that book from. Heh heh. They sure ain't getting them back now.

  2. I can't say that I have ever borrowed a book I didn't return, or the Library would charge me! The few books I have borrowed from friends have also been returned, although I can't say the opposite is true. I have lost some books along the way.

    Now that I mostly use an e-reader, losing lent books is no longer an issue :)

    I did once borrow some sort of exercise cable that attached to a door knob to rehabilitate a shoulder injury. That person never saw it again, and I don't have it any longer. But it they asked for it, I would replace it. Really.

    Enjoying the pictures.


I love comments! The good, the bad, and the ugly, so tell me what you have to say! And if you like what you read (or at least find yourself entertained), follow my blog to read more. Although I'm not always able to respond to comments immediately, I appreciate every one of them.
