Anyone else have kids that are on break right now? I hate to call it Spring Break because, when I was kid, Spring Break happened right before Easter. Not weeks before Easter. But, due to the fact that my two little ones have been home all week (and will continue to be home all next week), I have no idea what day it actually is. There is no routine, no structure…just endless days of waking up, tending to their needs, watching them sit around and play video games with their friends while also talking to friends on the phone, ushering them out of the house and forcing them to play outside (their words, not mine), providing meals and snacks throughout the day, and finally collapsing of exhaustion at the end of the day only to wake up and start it all over again.
This week has reminded me how much I love when they are in school. There are a few hours during the day when I can do things like get caught up on bills, return emails, work, and read in peace. I have one more week of this chaos…and then my life will return to its normal state of crazy.
I have been able to read some books this week, albeit not as quickly nor as quietly as I would have liked.
Hands Off by Kayti McGee. This was a quick and funny read.
Hannah’s Story by Terra Kelly. A story of finding yourself after your world is dramatically changed.
More by T.M. Franklin. I will admit, this is not my usual genre. But I won this book in a giveaway on Facebook…and I loved it. I was drawn in immediately by the story and was hooked all the way through. I just need to find time to read the rest of the series!
I am currently reading:
Chandler by Laurelin Paige. This is the 5th book in the Fixed series. I loved Hudson…so I am hoping his little brother can live up to my expectations.
Have a good weekend…I am going to try to find some of the peace I have been missing this past week!
