Nothing like making lists to get you motivated, huh? That's my plan! I even have one made for most of next week already (including meals for the week)…..how do you like that??? Now, if I can stick to it, that'll be another story!! It's amazing how friends invitations for lunch can screw up a whole day…..but what a fun diversion and at this time of year, fun is what you need!!!!!! At least, it's what I need. The older I get, the more I dread this time of year. Too much work and too much drama….and that's all I'm saying! I'm sure you all have your "issues" too.
I did send off envelopes with books this week, as usual. Funny how when I pulled envelopes for each girl, they were both polar bears. I have stacks of envelopes already finished with books enclosed, completely addressed, and stamped so that all I have to do is grab on Wednesdays and Saturdays when I send them off…..so this was strange. Cool though! And then, I did make two identical (the last one) for a pre-Christmas treat! Last year it seemed that I made more Christmas envelopes…..but since I already have so many others, I thought two would be sufficient for this year. You'll see the other one, next week.
I bought a few more books from Amazon……3 of them are children's books geared to the 8-12 old range. Who knows why I was drawn to them since neither of my little ones are that age yet, but I read the reviews and didn't want to forget them, so bought them right away. In fact, I already read two of them. Duh! (With so few pages I felt as though I accomplished something….so that's why.)
And here are the books I read this week:
THE PEPINS AND THEIR PROBLEMS (kids) by Marilyn Hafner
LIFE CODE by Dr. Phil McGraw
A TANGLE OF KNOTS (kids) by Lisa Graff
THE 13TH GIFT (a true story) by Joanne Huist Smith
My favorite was the last one. A touching real life story that I will long remember! I highly recommend it! And, I just started "The Look of Love", by Sarah Jio (one of my favorite authors this year), so I'll let you know how it was next week.
So, that's the news. I have been procrastinating long enough…….time to clean my house! Have a great day, my friends and enjoy a book!
