What I Read: 5 books
After my daughter listened to the audiobook of I Wish You All the Best, I just HAD to read it so we could talk about it. Then I read the next three Scooby Apocalypse graphic novels, enjoying the parody of Tr*mp as well as the general hilariousness of taking those meddling kids so seriously. Then for a complete change of tone I read Barely Missing Everything. which was really good but unremittingly grim.
What I'm Reading/What's Next
I couldn't sleep last night, so I grabbed The Disasters from where I'd put it down near my bed a month or two ago. It's fun so far--madcap sci fi adventure. And if I manage to grab Birthday from the new books display before someone else does, I can complete my first bingo row of the summer!
- My daughter's been bugging me to make kotletes, which are basically Latvian pork meatballs, and last night I not only finally did, but also made a loaf of homemade bread. Which is gone already, because homemade bread is amazing.
- Reminder that I'm doing a weekly "giveaway" all month. I put it in quotes, because I'm actually donating books (for the most part) in your name. I came up with the idea while driving home last Tuesday, and I was so excited planning it out that I missed my exit. TO MY HOUSE. ON THE ROUTE THAT I DRIVE DAILY FOR MY COMMUTE.
- I keep daydreaming about running away for a week of alone time. Then Friday my family was out of the house all day and late into the night, and I did absolutely nothing. Like, I didn't even read much. I watched about ten episodes of New Girl, which is okay, but not worth devoting a day to. So maybe I wouldn't do well on my own after all. (On the other hand, I was super productive the next day, so maybe I just needed that level of vegging out to charge my batteries? But I'm on vacation, so why would I? Life is confusing. OH! I also put together my massive list of my favorite book that I've read that was published each year I've been alive, so yeah, I guess I did do something for a few hours.)
The kid leaves for a week at camp, so we'll practice being empty nesters this week. We've talked about walking to this margarita place that opened near us, although it will probably be more of a party joint that we like. Might also have some of our trivia friends over for a game night. And the least likely plan we've discussed is doing a thorough cleaning of our bedroom and closets. I think it'll be a nice week whatever we end up doing, and I hope yours is as well!
