First of all, let me wish you all a very Happy Easter! He is risen! We are actually attending the sunrise mass at 7am, so I am cheating a little and writing this on Saturday night. AND THEN...we shall be going to brunch at Roy's (Hawaiian fusion cuisine) where I will not only participate in a proper three course meal including dessert but shall share a bottle of bubbly with my husband as well. I will probably slip into guilt-mode and need to walk or do the elliptical or something later, but I shall allow myself this indulgence that is going to be AWESOME. (On the other hand, I just bought a new floatie for my pool, so...maybe I'll forego the walking and just float and read all afternoon.)
I had a short week this week, if you count an official week as owning my days. I had a golf tournament, workouts and a horseback lesson up through Wednesday, then the kids were out on spring break, which continues for another week. This is all good...there is a modicum of sleeping in (unless we all head over to Andre's for the 8am workout) but there is also a lot of running around doing things to entertain the little angels. On Thursday and Friday, this included animal shelter duties, a Magic basketball game, special mother/children Andre workouts, and church.
So the reading and blogging. I am feeling a failure on these counts. I did listen to "The Fault in Our Stars" by John Green, but found that there were six discs for the book and I only loaded five somehow. I cannot EXPRESS the emotional distress this caused me. I had to freaking BUY the damn thing on my Kindle to finish it. I was not happy. Still the book...so good. Then I received, like a gift from above, an audio copy of "Let's Pretend This Never Happened" by Jenny Lawson (the Bloggess) in the mail from Penguin Audio (love you, mean it). That beauty went right to the top of the priority list, and I'm really close to finishing that one. I can't wait to write the review.
In print reading, I am still (and forever will be I think) working my way through Nesbo's "The Leopard" which, as I said last week, is like 2 million pages long and 10 pounds in weight. I have also uploaded it from Overdrive to my phone so I can read it in places where a large tome can't go or when I am too weak to carry it. I'm trying, I'm really trying. I am also leisurely reading a book of poems by Ethan Coen. Because it is National Poetry Month!
Hope everyone has a wonderful Easter and a restful Sunday. And know that by 2pm EST, I shall be full of food and champagne and will be asleep in the sun.
