Why I haven't been posting
I know it seems I have nothing to say. The problem is that could not be further from the truth! I have so much to say! The problem is that Lazarus has finally died, I I do not expect that he will be brought back again. Nathan finished school last Friday and since then we have put together a church picnic, have started summer school and well...I guess that about says it all. BUSY! I have been doing a lot of fun things with my friend Christi, sometimes with the kids and sometimes without. I recently signed up for my own library card (long story why I am just now getting one.). The kids checked out a couple of books and I chose one as well. I didn't even know what to look for so I picked Water For Elephants because I had heard of it and it is becoming (or maybe already is) a movie. The novel was written by a woman though she is writing from a man's perspective. The book could have been good if she was not so graphic and disgusting. Perhaps I live in a bubble where men are nice, kind and non-vulgar. At first I thought I could read it by skipping "scenes" then scenes became chapters and I started to wonder if I was getting anything uplifting or otherwise entertaining from the book. So, I stopped. It saddens me that once again I am let down by another #1 New York Times best seller. Don't people read anything decent anymore? I called a friend and she gave me a list of books that I will be looking into for the remainder of my summer reading!
