But back to books: I'm currently in the midst of two books which is unusual for me. I'm working on The Last Queen by C.W. Gortner at work and Eclipse by Stephanie Meyer at home. I am not very far into The Last Queen but the start has been very promising. Eclipse is kinda meh for me...I am of course flying through it but I can't say I'm loving it or anything. We'll see how it goes. I've got a ton of good books waiting for to read them which is turning out to be a bit of a distraction. Does anyone else have this problem? I just look at my stacks and cannot decide what to read...it is one of the reasons why I decided to try keeping a book at work. I just want to read them all and now! Not very reasonable but it is how I feel :) Anyways, hope everyone has a good Sunday and I'll be visiting soon!

The Sunday Salon - May 17th
How is May already half way over? Seriously, it feels like the month has just begun and yet it is already the 17th. I've been lax in posting this week for a multitude of reasons. We've had lots of rain and thunderstorms here which meant a temporary loss of internet connection which is never a good thing. Plus, t-ball has started which means games and practice and you get the picture. My house is a mess and my laundry piles are hideous but I've been reading :) LOL! Sometimes, reading is the only thing that keeps my sanity in the midst of the chaos...literally. Let me share a "fun" example and then I'll get back to the books. So you all know that my daughter is creeping towards two (I'm not ready but she seems to be) which can be trouble. And trouble can sometimes be her middle name :) She wakes up yesterday morning and is occupying herself while I am getting ready for work. Until I notice that she has spilled a glass of some liquid (I'm pretty sure it was kool-aid which I blame on her dad) all over my living room carpet. So I'm scrubbing the floor so it won't stain and as I am literally on my knees working on the first stain, she grabs my son's full glass of milk and dumps it on our dog. With a smile on that innocent little face. I could have cried but what could I do but dry off the dog and give her a bath AFTER I got home from work. And my son and I had a talk about leaving drinks in reach of where his sister can get her grubby mitts on them. Some start to my morning right? :)
