I have been meaning to write, but I am reading this and since I am ignoring housework, husband and children to do it, I should probably ignore my blog too, at least until I finish.
My husband was gone for five days last weekend and I had the kids all by myself. It went very smoothly, but I was rundown and crabby when he got home on Monday. So I said a quick hello, got in the car and went to the library BY MYSELF. I brought home 12 books – adoption, parenting, new fiction and Ethiopia.
Please note, if you are looking to go to the library to relax and for a little pick-me-up you probably should NOT browse the “Africa” section… Darfur, Rwanda, the Congo… I walked out of the library way more depressed than I walked in.
In the end it was worth it. Rebecca Haile (Held at a Distance) is entertaining me while teaching me things I did not know. Oh, and I want to be her friend. Any chance that you are reading this, Rebecca?
