Thoughts on books, family, and life in one impressive package.
The Sunday Salon Button

Guten Morgen, meine Liebchens! For many, this is a long weekend. Unfortunately, my company does not recognize the federal holiday that is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and I have to work tomorrow. I also have work to do today – bills, cleaning, laundry, grocery shopping, running, writing, and if there’s time, reading. This after coming off a week of ten+ hour work days with almost no lunch. To say I’m tired is an understatement.

I had hoped to relax yesterday, but instead we headed to the boat show while Jim let visions of a bigger boat fill his head. There were some beautiful boats there, and we all agreed that we definitely need something larger. Our little 15.5 footer makes me seasick and provides no room for friends to come with us when we head to the lake. We’ll see if anything comes of this trip or if it was more wishful thinking.

This week, I managed to finish one more novel, Jed Rubenfeld’s The Death Instinct. As that was for a book tour, the review will go up later in the week. As for reviews, I shared my thoughts on Ally Condie’s excellent Matched, Pat Conroy’s The Prince of Tides, and the third novel of the Mortal Instruments series, City of Glass. I expounded on a problem that was particularly awful this past soccer season, parents living vicariously through their children, and this week’s Motivate Me update shared my progress after one week of Weight Watchers. Connor seems to be on a long vacation with his Connor’s Corner. He is more interested in his Legos than in reading these days, but I hope to get something from him for next week.

With that, I have too much to do, and I want to get it done so that I can relax and enjoy the two football games today. With a house full of Steelers’ and Packers’ fans, we definitely have a vested interest in what happens tonight!

I hope everyone has a wonderful and relaxing Sunday. Happy reading!
