Friday! Friday!

Happy Friday everyone!

What's the weather like where you're at? It rained this morning but it is slowly clearing up and the heat is scheduled to return this weekend. A trip to the beach may be in order. You know, I haven't even bought a new bathing suit this year and I'm not sure I want to wear the one from last year ... oh well, it's not like I'll be swimming or anything.

I was supposed to run this morning but when the alarm went off, I decided not to. No excuses. I just didn't feel like it. I'm determined to make running fun again. I'll be out there tomorrow.

Today is the last day of school and I know I have a long summer ahead of me. A summer of kids with too much time on their hands. The good news is, both of them have part-time jobs so they won't have as much time as summer's past. My daughter is really beginning to enjoy receiving a paycheck with her name on it. There's nothing like earning your own money. Good for her.

I ordered two books yesterday: When We Danced on Water by Evan Fallenberg and How I Stole Johnny Depp's Alien Girlfriend by Gary Ghislain. Reviews to follow. I just finished Silver Sparrow by Tayri Jones. Awesome book which I highly recommend. I finished that one in less than two days. It's the story of a bigamist. He has two wives and two daughters who are very close in age. The "inside" family knows nothing about the "outside" family and the "outside" family knows everything about the inside family. (Inside family = family he lives with, Outside family = family he doesn't live with). The story is split into two parts and told from the perspective of each of the daughters. If you've been reading me for any length of time than you know that my first husband was also a bigamist and you know that I am an "outside" child. I was drawn to this book from the very first paragraph.

Not too much else happening here. Enjoy your weekend. Do something special for your fathers and/or husbands for Father's Day. Happy 22nd wedding anniversay to my sister!

Talk to you soon.

Part-time jobs for the your kids...a great thing.
Silver Sparrow was wonderful! I've just finished reading "Leaving Atlanta" and it feels good to read books for fun again.

I just purchased Silver Sparrow. I read the first paragraph and ordered it right away. Will read it during the 4th of July week.
