Odds and Ends

  • I'm leading the discussion at our book club tonight: "My Name is Asher Lev" --I was shocked I had not read this book until now. It's a fabulous book; I'm excited to talk about it.
  • #2 left her jacket at the park. I called L who gave me E's phone number so I could get M's number from her (M was still at the park); E called me back, left a message with M and when I went to pick up #1 at school, M was there with the jacket. I love friends! And cell phones!
  • Tomorrow night DH and I are goin' out on the town! Well, at least dinner. I'm glad we'll have some sort-of-but-not-really-because-#4-will-be-with-us-and-we're-going-with-friends alone time.
  • I leave for LA on Saturday! HUZZAH! I get to spend 2 entire days with my MIL and SIL's (whom I love so very, very much). #4 has to come along, of course (that anti-bottle baby!), and so he and I are going to be hangin' out on the plane together. I'm excited for DH because he will have some needed alone time with his three oldest offspring. They love their dad so much, so I'm excited for them, too.
  • Jane Clayson Johnson's book: "I Am a Mother" (which I got for Mother's Day) is just fabulous. Fab-u-lous. I need to read it again.
  • WE'VE GOT RENTERS!!! They signed the lease (an entire YEAR!) and move in soon. It's gonna be weird having strangers living in our home in Provo, but boy it's great to have that financial part of our life in order. You know, someone else paying our mortgage. :)

I just got I am a Mother too and can't wait to read it! My sister said she read it in two days so hopefully it won't get in the way of our book club book this month--The Innocent Man

Is that the John Grisham book?

I wanted that book for Mother's Day. I got the Charlotte's Web DVD instead. A good choice but I still want to read Jane's insights!

Cheryl said...

Ha! That's funny --this was the first year that I DIDN'T get a children's DVD. And, of course, each year my children pick my DVD gift, so...yeah. :)

Jamie J said...

Yeah it's by John Grisham

I'm sad I coudln't make it book group and I'm sad that I didn't get around to reading the book either. I read the one for my book club up here and it wasn't good. Waste of time. Anyway, I hope you guys had fun!

jaimie-
I haven't read that book yet --my mom is borrowing my copy --but is it good?

denae-
We missed you SOOOO much last night! There were only 3 of us, but I'll tell you what, the Crepevine is so good! Yummy food! Anyways, what was the book for your club up there? (so I can avoid it or refute your distaste). :)

Jamie J said...

Yes, I just finished it on Sunday. It's such a crazy story!

Cheryl said...

I'll make sure to read it, then...thanks!
