Oh, the brightness!

I am making a very serious effort to surface. I realize that I need to purge my brain when I find myself driving around composing blog posts in my head. You have no idea how many Really Awesome Posts you've missed out on that took place solely in my brain, only to be discarded in favor of swim lesson schedules, potty training ideas, and the dog's medicines that can't be mixed.

Doing some editing work for a friend and writing the newsletter for the neighborhood has left me sick of the computer. I haven't even been on Facebook other than to reply to a thread or two that keep popping into my inbox. Gasp! Who am I and what have I done with me?

There have been some really exciting developments around here, the most important of which is that Mr. Pigs took down the single bulb fixture in our tiny little potty room (water closet, if you're feeling fancy) and put one in with TWO bulbs! Hot dog! I can read in there without blinding myself! It's the small things that keep me going.

Speaking of reading, after tearing through the Hunger Games series in about two weeks, I have fallen into a reading lull. I need something new and exciting to get into. I'm still reading the True Blood series in the background of several things. Just finished a Jodi Picoult book I didn't like (Picture Perfect) and started The Girl Who Played With Fire. But it's a long one. I need some shorter ones to help me along. Some no brainers.

I do have some super interesting stuff to say, but you're just going to have to stay there, perched on the edge of your seat, until I have a few more brain cells to work with. I'm shooting for tomorrow. Hold me to it.

I just finished Saving CeeCee Honeycutt.  If you haven't read it, go for it if you enjoy southern coming-of-age-type reads.  Think Secret Life of Bees.

Book club just finished 'Tortilla Curtain.'  Not very uplifting, but an interesting read.  I'm reading a free mystery (yes, I said FREE) I got on my Kindle called 'Invisible Ivy Malone,' and is the first in a new series.  It's actually pretty good.  Light reading that you can breeze through without having to think too hard.

But I also would recommend the Maisie Dobbs series, if you haven't read any of those.  FANTASTIC books.
