- Yesterday was Bo Peep's last day at our house. We had her favorite lunch- Doodles (Mac n cheese) and Dog Dogs (hot dogs), and we had cake for snack. The Bug is going to miss her, even though he'd tell you otherwise.
- To make up for it, I've chased down a playdate for us next Wednesday. This is a brand new group of moms and kids, so I'm completely nervous, but he's going to love it.
- The Pirate has been banned from checking out any more books at the school library until he returns the ones he has. This sounds familiar.
- I have fallen madly in love with this quilt and am planning to make it soon. I'm also pondering making a "quiet book" to take to church with us.
- After months (17 of them!) of not sleeping all night, the Princess finally slept all night the night before last. Of course, she didn't last night, but it's progress.
- This was a crazy reading week for me. I had all those InterLibrary Loans to work through, and the BlogHer Book Club book. I stayed focused tho, and barely allowed myself to stray.
The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown. This was the BHBC one, and sad to say, I didn't really like it. It has a really pretty cover though!
Split by Swati Avashti. This one was for the Janssen Reading Challenge (my own personal challenge, mind you, not a real thing. Tho it should be.) I enjoyed this one, as much as you can enjoy a book about abuse, and talked a bit about my own experience with abuse here.
- Falling for Hamlet by Melissa Ray. Also for the Janssen Reading Challenge. Only 50 pages or so into this one. I've never actually read Hamlet (yeah yeah) but it's very clear that it's a retelling.
Make the Bread, Buy the Butter: What You Should and Shouldn't Cook from Scratch -- Over 120 Recipes for the Best Homemade Foods by Jennifer Reese. This one is in the bathroom, so I'm reading it slowly and I'm not really reading all the recipes. I am finding it both funny and interesting, which I love in a foodie book. I'm only about 1/4 of the way through it. (Please tell me I'm not the only one who stashes a book in the bathroom for quick breaks from the chaos OUT of the bathroom?)
Blue Like Jazz: Nonreligious Thoughts on Christian Spirituality by Donald Miller. I'll review this one when I'm done.
The Magic Room: A Story About the Love We Wish for Our Daughters by Jeffrey Zaslow. 2/3 done. Enjoying, but not loving.
