Tuesday Thoughts.

1.) I can’t believe that I’m entering the last three months of my nanny job. I’ve been with these kiddos for almost two years and it’s remarkable how much they’ve grown in such a short amount of time. I’m starting to get a little sad but I’m also excited to move on to the next chapter of my life. That said, I’ve really been trying to enjoy these last moments with them. It’s bittersweet…

2.)
Books Read TT

  • Fin and Lady by Cathleen SchineThis novel does an excellent job of capturing the essence of an era and the appeal of a location; I would’ve loved to have grown up in 1960s Greenwich Village. Great read.
  • The Husband’s Secret by Liane MoriartyNow I get what all the hype was about. I thoroughly enjoyed this book!
  • Great With Child by Beth Ann FennellyWhat a wonderful collection of letters to a ‘soon-to-be’ mama. I wish Beth Ann were my friend 🙂
  • A Million Miles in A Thousand Years by Donald Miller: Author of Blue Like Jazz (which I actually haven’t read yet) – Donald Miller is a rare talent. Such a beautifully written book. I didn’t want it to end.
  • One More Thing by BJ Novak: We all knew that Novak was a brilliant writer after watching The Office – did you expect anything less for his first collection of short stories? I laughed out loud on numerous occasions. Favorite stories include: Julie & the Warlord, ‘Rithmetic, The Girl Who Gave Great Advice, I Never Want to Walk on the Move.

3.) My family celebrated my sisters twenty-third birthday over the weekend. We had a pre-Cinco De Mayo fiesta style dinner (my favorite!) For dessert: German Chocolate Cake! Yum. Happy Birthday to my sweet sister. Michelle's Bday

4.) It’s spring in Columbus!!

  1. I just read a good YA book called, “Life is but a Dream” by Brian James. It’s about a girl with schizophrenia. Very vivid images and gives a look into the world of someone who literally lives in their own sense of reality. I didn’t think I’d get into a story about teenagers, but I totally did. Very fast read.

    Jesus Land by Julia Scheeres is a great memoir I read back last summer on vacation. It’s about her family who poses as Christians (but in my opinion) are anything but and the horrible things they inflict on her and her adopted brother.

    If you want to read something that is more educational but still very good I suggest “Our Daily Meds” by Melody Petersen. She investigates the evils of big pharma, how advertising is used to trick the masses and basically you will never look at medicine or even some doctors the same again. Starts off slow and then picks up, much like a novel.

  2. Thanks for the book recs! I just finished Spin by Catherine McKenzie. Enjoy these last few months with the kids – they’re adorable!

  3. those kids…seriously, just adorable beyond belief!! send your columbus spring to wisco! it’s been highs in the 40’s the last couple of days 😦
