Thoughts on Thursday

Reading: A couple of novellas this week, probably because it has been a busy one. My fave:

"Blonde Date" was light and fun and featured an adorably nerdy love interest. I know that the "alpha male" is a popular type in contemporary novels but sometimes what passes for a love interest would be red flag creeper with anger management problems in real life. Andy was endearingly normal. And it was written by the Sarina Bowen, who wrote one of my all-time favorite books, "The Year We Fell Down."

Writing: My stories for the looming Armed Forces Celebration Week. With Memorial Day this week it is a busy time at the newspaper. Patriotic holidays are our jam. I am taking several days off next week to have some teeth repaired -- you know you are a little frayed at the edges when you start looking forward to major dental work as a vacation.

Planning: Next year's vacation. Yes, we are those people. I love to have something to look forward to and The Engineer loves to plan vacations. Win/win. We are cruising to the Bahamas again with Disney, but this time will be on a different boat. I view the Disney cruise ships like their park counterparts. Each one is unique and has something exciting to offer.

Listening to: "Dare" by Gorillaz.

Working on: Big Kid's birthday weekend. The big 1-1 is almost here!

  1. I'll have to check out that book. Always looking for a fun book to read. Vacation planning is fun and a great thing to look forward to. I've cruised the Bahamas before but I bet the Disney boats are amazing!

  2. Vacation planning is always fun.
