It's been a whirlwind couple of weeks around here! No one told me when I became a parent that the weeks would fly by at warp speed, but I won't actually accomplish much. Here's a rundown:
-Drove to NY for Elliott's baby dedication
-Drove home overnight
-Multiple doctor appointments for all
-Small group every Thursday night
-More time with friends Saturday nights
-Church on Sundays
-Trying to workout every day
-Shopping for groceries
-Working (yeah...that little thing)
-Photo session for Elliott
-TONS of spring yard work
-Dealing with dogs
And on and on and on. And did I mention we only have 1 car? I feel like reading has really had to take a back burner, which makes me sad. I always said I would be the mom that would read as much as I did before having kids, but I obviously needed a reality check.
That being said, I've also been in the middle of a horrible reading slump. I don't know if it's because I have such limited time, so most books aren't appealing to me or what. The last couple of days have been better...I'm in the middle of Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers, which is awesome, but a slow read for me and I'm listening to White Cat by Holly Black. A great listen, done by Jesse Eisenberg.
I also posted a few things, despite the craziness:
A review of My Family for the War
My love for Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe
I talked about The Beetle Book by Steve Jenkins
My thoughts on Jodi Picoult's latest book.
Hopefully this week brings great reading and some relaxation. Not counting on it though and that's ok. Enjoy your week!
