More Summer Reading

I was checking out Papercuts yesterday and saw this blog post written by Jennifer Balderama. Her post made me smile and she includes her list of summer reads.

Additionally, I have been listening to audio books in the car. Not quite the same as picking up a book, but it’s a way for me to catch-up on some stuff that I have on my list, yet can never find the time to get to. I will be posting my first audio book review here within the next few days. I think they definitely have their place but if I had the choice, I would go with the book version. What do you all think of audio books?


Back To The Grind

I love long weekends (who doesn’t?) but now my days are off. It probably doesn’t help that my 4 year-old woke up with the birds almost every day this past weekend. One night it was midnight, and one night right around 3am. Her reason? She was hungry or she wasn’t tired anymore. It’s hard to be angry with her when she is so cute but man, I need my rest so I can be a somewhat normal human being come morning.

Today’s Tuesday, right?

So here I am at work. Working on a project that is due this Friday. I am pretty much done but I am putting the finishing touches on it. Once that project is under my belt, I will be free to finish up my summer reading list and also the one for my son. I can’t wait! I will be a happy, happy girl come Friday afternoon.

I will be taking a break later this afternoon to sign up at the gym (here on campus). I’m sure my fitness antics will be the source of some funny posts in the near future. I am not athletically inclined and prone to sports related injuries. I do try though! I am looking forward to reading on the elliptical. It motivates me to do more when there is reading involved.

Well.. back to work I go.
