Stepping back.

Boy oh boy this is a crazy time! Spring in general, plus Spring as a teacher... two young children... poor economy and scary outlook for education... plus countless other stresses. Hectic doesn't begin to describe it.
I have a pile of books on my bedside. Good books. Books that will make me think. And wonder. And contemplate. And, think some more.
I just can't get into a single one of them! ha! So, I'm trading them in! Stashing them aside for later. I went "shopping" at my parents house today (tried to get to the library, but it wasn't happening), and came home with a pile of books that, shallwesay, will not make me feel smart.
I'm so ok with that.
(I must say, I don't know anything about any of these books. If I am wrong and one of them makes me think too much... grrrr!)
Just in case I have a momentary twinge of guilt over shoving really good books under my bed, I have one of these at the ready!
(It's a Cosmo. Not strong. But in a super cute glass that Natalie gave me for my birthday!)

And, let's not forget those who help me keep it all together! No amount of stress can take away my smile when I see these two!

Well, goodnight all... some silly non-thought provoking book is calling my name!

I think my favorite part is that there is a slinky behind your cosmo.

I know nothing about any of those books. If it makes you feel better, I read a Cosmo this week. It was in the teacher's lounge. I didn't use a single brain cell in reading a single page.....and I liked it.

I have to go on record and say that while there are brainless books at my house there are also MORE thought provoking ones!..but they are the ones gathering dust!

My vote is for Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood. One of my favorites, and you get so into the characters!

Don't you think that you think and I think way too much throughout the work week? I think so. For that reason, I think (see, there, I did it again) you should read mindless stuff at night. Give your brain a rest and enjoy!

Stopping from the UBP! It was wonderful to read about your life and visit your site. I try to read one high fiber( good for me ) book a year than I head for fun books.
