Return from the Islands!
WHAT I'M READINGOne of the best things about going on vacation, time to read! Started with THE WINNER'S CURSE by Marie Rutkoski. Loved it! Perfect vacation reading. Plus any book that can keep me up reading past midnight after snorkeling, hiking in the rainforest and going night kayaking...yeah, that's a winner. I also read LIFE AS WE KNEW IT by Susan Beth Pfeffer. I love survival stories and having to survive after a meteorite hits the moon and changes global, well Everything...very cool premise. Eventually, I ran out of new downloads and re-read ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS (needed something lighter after surviving the apocalypse) and ON THE ISLAND (seemed appropriate, albeit a somewhat non-realistic take on island survival) (And for the last time: Bats do NOT get stuck in your hair! Drives me batshit crazy (get it? Haha.) every time someone puts that in a book. What can I say, Biologist woes)
WHAT I'M WRITING
WHAT WORKS FOR ME
Taking vacations. I should do that more often. Both Boy Chris and I were surprised at how good it felt to totally disconnect for over a week. We've been in a news vacuum. Seriously, the World could of ended and we wouldn't have known. But wow, do I feel great!
WHAT ELSE I'VE BEEN UP TO
Man, I don't even know where to start!!! It might be because we haven't taken a vacation in Forever, but this was the best freakin' vacation!! We had an absolute blast! It was perfect in so many ways. I guess I'll just have to hit the highlights, because otherwise this blog would be pages and pages.(and you all would be begging me to shut up) Our flight didn't get in until past midnight, so we haven't downloaded all our photos, but I'll post a few. We'll post more later and of course on all our other blogs. (Have I mentioned lately that I have too many blogs?!!)
