One thing I've learned about this world of mommy bloggers, is that there is a wealth of information out there! If I have a question, chances are that at least one of you has the answer. Here are the three I'm throwing out into the blogosphere today...
Jim and I are hooked on way too many TV shows. But, most of them will be ending very soon. There are only two that I know of that we will want to watch in the summer months, so I told Jim that my goal this summer is to READ. Books, oh, how I have missed you! Okay, I have managed to read a few this year, but now I mean business. I was wondering how to go about my plan. We didn't really have the money for me to buy a stack of new books at the bookstore. I could check out books at the library, but that meant probably reading older books, and having to remember to return them on time. I could also borrow books from friends, but I am a defiler. I like to have the freedom to mark up my books. I underline things I want to remember. I highlight great lines. Don't even get me started on Kindle because ACK! RIDICULOUS!
Then, I hit the jackpot! The library was having a used book sale. I scored this pile for $9.50! (Squeal!)
Oh, I did say something about a question, didn't I? The question is...
1. Has anyone read any of these? Please NO SPOILERS or I will have to hurt you, but could you just tell me, a. Awesome book - read that one first, or b. Don't bother unless you enjoy wasting hours of your life.
If you can't see those, here's the list...
-Nineteen Minutes, Jodi Picoult
-All We Ever Wanted Was Everything, Janelle Brown
-Breath, Eyes, Memory, Danticat
-Every Last Cuckoo, Kate Maloy
-Can You Keep A Secret?, Sophie Kinsella
-Firefly Lane, Kristin Hannah
-Swapping Lives, Jane Green
-The Ten-Year Nap, Meg Wolitzer
-The Year Of Fog, Michelle Richmond
-Remember Me?, Sophie Kinsella
2. We went to the birthday party of Dylan's best buddy yesterday. He turned three. There were five other three year olds there. Here's the thing, none of them really played with each other that much. They were all in the same space, but playing separately, for the most part. Those of you with kids three or older, do they suddenly hit four and become more social, because I taught four year olds and I remember them playing together more?
3. I went to get my hair done last weekend. Five minutes before I left, I realized I had only shaved ONE leg. I could grate cheese with the other one. I'm not the only person who has done this, right? RIGHT?!
