the one where I try to write ONLY about positive things
*finished another couple of books recently...The Postmistress by Sarah Blake - I gave it 3/5 stars on Goodreads.com. I struggled w/this one...even being OBSESSED with the WWII era...it took me just about exactly 50 pages to figure out what was going on AND to decide if I would continue...thankfully it was just the 1st two chapters that were difficult. I hate giving up on a book. The other reason for 3 stars is that the ending was less than stellar. On to the next book...
Pictures of You by Caroline Leavitt and it is REALLY good and suspenseful so far. I hope to finish it in the next couple of days.
*I have yet to read a book I've PAID for on my Nook...the past 5-6 e-books have all been from the library which of course are FREE. Love that!! Hopefully in the long run this will help my pocketbook from suffering from my book addiction.
*on Saturday, I successfully dropped off a good chunk of baby clothes at the ginormous consignment sale that will take place next week. hoping i pick up a healthy check on Good Friday when it's over.
*there are only 33 days of school left. 38 workdays left for me.
*13 days to Easter...or when I can freely drink a Starbucks Iced Chai any 'ol day of the week.Yum!
*I just received a coupon for a FREE pound of chicken salad from EarthFare. (yep, I'm stretching to find anything positive I can) :)
*I plan to spend the entire day on April 25 scrapbooking...perk to working in a Catholic school...no school the day after Easter.
