Today all the kids went back to school, and while I do believe we had a nice break from school and time together, it was so time for the girls to return to school and for my house to be quiet and peaceful again. I’m so very spoiled to my time at home!
I wanted to share some upcoming blog ideas:
Look for a new book review in a week or two. Barbara Delinsky has a new novel out today, “Not My Daughter” From the publisher: It tells the story of three high school girls who make a pact to become pregnant — and the fallout when the small Maine town where they live turns on their mothers. What does it take to be a good mother? You’ll be thinking about this long after the book is done. Talk about your ripped from the headlines story, it should be good. I’ve got a readers copy on it’s way from the publisher, can’t wait to dig in!
In the last few weeks I’ve been irritated on more than one occasion on what people will post on social networking sites such as facebook and myspace and twitter. It seems that these sites have given people the idea that it’s appropriate to just post anything that pops into their head, deeply personal tragedies and dramas, and my favorite, the cry for attention………such as………”oh its’ just all over”, or “oh my life is awful…….”, you know the ones………..one liners and no explanations. I can’t wait to write more on this!
Continuing my thoughts on revising myself I’d like to share some other words I’ve heard from friends, none to be called out and named, but just what remarkable people I know and how they have found time to choose a word for 2010 for themselves.
I’ve become weary lately of complainers……….they seem to be everywhere in my life as of late, and I know it sounds semi heartless, but I’m just tired of it. Put on your big girl panties and get er done!!
I’m having a chilly but lovely day……….time for more coffee and reading the blogs I love. The bills are paid and the grocery store calls my name later on, not my favorite, but I’m trying not to complain..ha ha!
