Anyways, just wanted to update you on what will be coming up next. I am about halfway through 'The Memory Keeper's Daughter,' by Kim Edwards (generously donated by my mom, complete with another blue post-it note that read, 'Thinking of you, Love, MOM.' The post-it notes make handy bookmarks). I've been reading a lot of 'What to Expect the First Year,' but will not be reviewing it - any reference text, in my opinion, is not reviewable. I am slowly trudging through 'The Prodigal Summer' (sorry, Amie) but am not getting very far.
As for TV shows, I've become strangely addicted to 'Wheel of Fortune' and even have Brian in on the game. We like to shout answers from the couch, and I'm sad to admit he gets more puzzles right than I do. I also want to highlight a major victory in our household - as of last Saturday, Brian became the 2009 winner of his law firm's golf tournament. The win came with a generous cash prize and bragging rights for a full year. I don't think Brian has stopped smiling. Big spenders that we are, we plan to hightail it to Babies-R-Us one of these nights and buy a stroller. Maybe if we get really crazy, we'll buy a breast pump, too.
Big shout-outs to all the friends who have stopped over or called. You are definitely making this whole process much more bearable - almost pleasant, in fact. So, Michele, Sarah, Krista, Liz, Jen, Amie, Claudia, Sherri, Courtney, and of course, Mom and Dad - thank you!
In lieu of book/TV reviews, I offer Emma's Fourth of July picture. Hope everyone enjoys the three-day holiday weekend.
