Don’t you hate it when bloggers give a bunch of reasons/excuses why they haven’t been updating their blog lately? Yeah, me too. So I won’t do that.
But I did want to pop in to let you know that I’m not dead.
Lots ‘o reading has been going on (books & blogs). Just not a lot ‘o review writing. My apologies.
I’m re-reading The Hunger Games right now for my book club. In general I’m not a re-reader and was only planning to skim it to refresh my memory before our meeting, but I couldn’t resist. It’s like brain candy- so fun and fast. When I read it last summer, I was completely Team Gale, but I think I’ve switched camps. Peeta is sweeta the second time around.
The girls get out of school in about a week. Our summer will be filled with swimming and tennis lessons, sleep-away camp for them (on alternating weeks- not at the same time. Poor planning on my part!), a family camping trip to the Mammoth area with friends, trips to the local water park and the beach, plus lots of ‘nothing days’ to fill in with bike rides, lemonade stands, neighbor kids, reading, sleeping in, and laziness. It’s good to be a kid, but I’m in a bit of a panic, trying to figure out how I will work from home with kids all around. Any suggestions from other work-at-home parents?
For my reading.. this summer I plan to get to The Lotus Eaters by Tatjana Soli, So Much for That by Lionel Shriver, How to Be An American Housewife by Margaret Dilloway, 31 Bond Street by Ellen Horan, Let the Great World Spin (for book club), the Eric Clapton biography (also for book club), and City of Refuge by Tom Piazza (book club).
What are you reading this summer?
