Busy, Busy!!

Well Im not doing well at all about posting here.

Like usualy my life is sooo busy! I won't go into detail of what we've done the last several days. A rundown-kids & I went swimming at the local pool one day, took the kids on a tractor ride with daddy last sunday, played outside every single day in the 90°+ weather. Today we went to the water park in a town near here. We stayed for 3 hours and I got fried.

I have finished a couple books the last week or so. Finished "Aprons on a Clothesline" by Traci DePree (3rd book in her Lake Emily series). AWESOME book..I just love this series and I hope it doesn't end for a looong time!! I also finished "Truth & Beauty" by Ann Patchett (non-fiction). It was about the relationship between Ann Patchett & Lucy Grealy (author of "Autobiography of a Face" which I LOVED). Im starting "The Half Brother" by Lars Saabye Christensen. It's a big book so Im sure I'll be reading it for awhile.

Like the new picture?

Do you like the new picture I added to my blog? It's my kiddos!! I don't know why I didn't do that before, just spaced it off I guess. Now I'll just have to remember to change the picture every once inawhile!

Sadly even though it's been almost a week since I updated, there really isn't much to say today. Oh hum..boring life sometimes, not that Im complaining.

I am starting to feel overwhelmed again with the number of book groups Im in. A couple months ago I was in a real funk with reading. So I thought I'd join a few new groups, get to know some new people etc. Now Im in a whole crapload and sadly I think Im going to have to bow out of a couple. I think I have the ones Im going to leave narrowed down to 3. Im also going to go no email in 1 group for awhile (won't be joining in on the discussion in that group for the next couple of months). So that should help.

I picked up a whole slew of books from the library this week. Mostly for upcoming group reads, but a couple that I wanted to read personally. "The Half Brother" and the newest one by Traci DePree "Aprons on a clothesline". Im sooo looking forward to that one. It's the 3rd in a series.

Well..Im going to grab my CR book and hit the sack!

Back from vacation

We got back last night from our 1 week vacation. We had a wonderful time but I am sooo exhausted today! It's going to take at least a week to recoop. My kids were spoiled rotten and are really shits today about listening.

I finished "The Professor & The Madman" by Simon Winchester while we were driving (see my review on my bibliophil.org web page, link on the left side bar) and started "Madame Bovary" by Gustave Flaubert.

I have tons of laundry to do, tons of clothes to put away and some serious veggin' out to do on the couch. I am sooo pooped.
