My husband had to work today so I am cleaning out backpacks, filling up pencil boxes and doing laundry. Not very glamorous. So then I decided I was going to sit on the couch and read, but then I look outside my windows and see a sunny day with trees blooming everywhere. I find it incredibly hard to read when it’s so beautiful out.
However, I do have some book tours coming up, so at night I have been reading The Day The Falls Stood Still and The Angel’s Game. I alternate between the two. I am going to have to fit The Danish Girl in there as well as it’s my book club’s pick for next month.
Tonight I am making a roast with mashed potatoes and having a nice, relaxing dinner.
What I Did
This past week I reviewed Fear The Worst [review] and Bridge of Sighs [review]. I enjoyed them both in completely different ways. I will definitely read another Russo book as Bridge is still with me. I love it when I ponder a book long after finishing it.
Yesterday we rented 17 Again and we all enjoyed it. There are some cuss words which I sort of did not notice (because of my potty mouth) but my son pointed out that it was not appropriate for my daughter to hear. Yep, you are right son! I was probably distracted by the overall hotness of Zac Efron so if you have a young one in the house, take note of the language.
What I’m Excited About
My kids start school on Wednesday so I’m pretty excited about that. I have a 6th grader and a 1st grader now. My son is already getting sentimental over his last year in elementary school. My brain is not quite there yet but prepping for the week is sort of getting me there.
The campus where I work does not start classes until August 24th so this week is my last week of sanity before all those incoming freshman hit the campus. In addition to that, I am also taking advantage of the fee waiver benefit that the university grants me so I am taking GOLF. Last semester I took photography so this time around I thought I’d try something new.
So what are you all up to this fine Sunday?
