Sunday Book Club: Caraval

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and fabulous New Year; although I am well aware that many of you did not.  It can be such a hard time for so many.  I personally do not like New Year’s.  The idea of the blank calendar year before me causes me such stress and anxiety.  While… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: Caraval

Sunday Book Club: The Girl With All the Gifts

I promise at some point I will get back to the skin care–I am just about ready to start my winter skincare protocol.  Usually this entails lasering sun spots, a chemical peel or two, and some filler or botox, but this year I’m so excited to try something new.  I’m going to try the vampire… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: The Girl With All the Gifts

Sunday Book Club: Murder on the Orient Express

Hiatus over!  I went on vacation over Thanksgiving break to Hawaii, and got sick on the way home.  I was so sick that I was in bed for 4 days. It was just a bad cold, but I had zero energy.  In fact, I had to stop decorating my Christmas tree just to rest.  Christmas… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: Murder on the Orient Express

Sunday Book Club: This Is How It Always Is

 I recently had someone ask me what genre of books I enjoyed the most. In reality, I enjoy almost everything.  As a rule I don’t really like young adult, or science fiction, or romance.  But there are probably several books in those genres that I have I read and enjoyed.  Variety is the spice of… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: This Is How It Always Is

Sunday Book Club: Today Will Be Different

 So this book is perfect for this week.  I’ve been trying to think about what I want to say tonight, besides reviewing the book, and here’s what I came up with: stomach flu.  We’ve had the stomach flu in our house this week.  It’s always super fun, hearing that “Moooooommmmm? I just threw up.”  This… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: Today Will Be Different

Sunday Book Club: No One Is Coming To Save Us

Before I get into this week’s book, I’d like to review how I did last week with my goals. Eating Habits: Uh, well, I did okay.  I didn’t drink carbonated beverages (yay!), or sugar (for the most part, I did cheat yesterday, but that was the only time), but I couldn’t stay away from white… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: No One Is Coming To Save Us

Sunday Book Club: American Gods

Well, obviously, I missed last week.  Lots of things have been happening, most of which have been out of my control.  Life has become hectic and messy, which causes me to be sort of at loose ends.  I’ve discovered, however, that my mental sharpness and health is heavily dependent on my environment. If my house… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: American Gods

Sunday Book Club: Station Eleven

Summer is officially over here: we got snow today.  It didn’t stick and it was more a “wintry mix”, but it is freezing cold.  Sigh.  Winter is always such a hard time for me, especially being in Utah.  I don’t ski, so the snow really doesn’t do much for me.  Winters are very long and… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: Station Eleven

Sunday Book Club: Shock of the Fall

Where does time go?  It seems there are never enough hours in the day.  I’ve been struggling a little lately, mostly with the worry that I am not enough.  I’m finding myself floundering about, really not being good enough at any of my roles right now.  It causes my anxiety to grow, and to push… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: Shock of the Fall

Sunday Book Club: A Little Life

This week has been CRAZY.  Getting four kids back in school, learning my new routine (which, by the way, I’ve failed miserably at.  I think I’ve missed about 4 things that I was supposed to do), and just having little fires to put out (My car is dying.  A long, very expensive death.), I’ve just… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: A Little Life
