Books

So I finished "These is my Words" this weekend and I have decided that I don't want to read any more books that make me cry...It is the jornoul of Sarah Prine from 1881-1901. She lives in the Arizona Territories and her family tries to move to Texas. Half way through the book I figured out that it is fiction...DUH Kim....It is based on Nancy Turner's family history and historical events...It was a good book but I do feel so sad after reading it.. What a hard life it was back then and what great comforts we have today. It made me want to hug my kids and Blayne more. It is for our book group at church so now I can move to something fun that I won't cry reading.



My parents and sister are coming this week for Chase's baptism. I have a lot of cleaning to do, organizing my linen closet, cleaning my carpets, scrubbing the food off the dinning room chairs(and walls) wash my couches, wash my curtains etc. Why am I just sitting here? I need some more Diet Dr. Pepper.

Did you pick up Book of a Thousand Days? My mom started reading it and then stopped after 3 chapters because she was bored (and I graciously told her it did not get any better) BUT there are a bunch of 5 star reviews on Amazon for it. Good luck with everything especially the baptism. Can't wait to hear all about it.
