What I'm Reading

Every year, like a good citizen of our fine town, I visit the public library and sign up for the summer reading club. (It has nothing to do with getting a free meal from Noodles and Company...Ok, it totally does.)

Here are the books I've read so far:
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows
The Gift Giving Handbook for the Inept Man by Timothy B. Schnabel (Funny to read from a woman's perspective, but has some good points in it.)
Manners by Kate Spade

I should mention that when I went to turn in my progress report after reading the Inept Man and Manners books, the librarian took one look at my two children and gave me a comment that said to me, "You clearly are lying because you have two children and there is no way you read two books in one week." I replied, "Yeah, spending 6 hours in the car does wonders for getting your reading list done." Yeah...she looked embarrassed.

Here are the ones that are on my nightstand (or piano bench that is next to our bed) waiting for me to read:
Bringing Up Girls by Dr. James Dobson (The first two chapters are good!)
Sarah's Key by Titiana de Rosnay (Haven't cracked the cover.)

If you have a book to suggest, post a comment!

Oh, Hello Baby!

These days I've been hanging out at the Oh Hello Baby! forums.

Check it out whether you're a new mom, a seasoned pro, thinking about having kids or looking to live vicariously through those who are. It is a small community right now, but several new moms who would love to connect with others like them or moms with all the answers to our commonly asked questions!

Finding the Time

I was busy with one kid, but really busy with two. We went on vacation. We've had family in town, and I've been frantically working on my summer to-do list.

Some things (blogs, for example) just end up taking a back burner to others.
