Great day today, which doesn't generally make for hysterical reading (so sorry). Speaking of reading, I'm excited about the new book I've checked out from the library (where I was once again reprimanded by librarian -- except this time for some other book-rental crime). "Daughter of Fortune" by Isabel Allende and "In the Moon of Red Ponies" by James Lee Burke. I've read one of Burke's novels before -- he's good for you guy readers, and I enjoy the narcissistic indulgence of reading stories centered around my family's home states (Texas & Louisiana). Just thought I'd pass on some rec's.
We had a great morning at the park, and then signed Ryan up for her first session of Spanish classes (thanks again Mom!), and basketball. I realize that we are coming dangerously close to becoming the suburban cliche of an overscheduled family, but when it's cheap or free, I just can't resist (that's what he said..badumbuhm....my last desperate attempt at humor, I swear).
Had a nice family night out at Chili's, though we did miss seeing Lea -- Ryan kept insisting she was there somewhere. Now the kids are getting ready for bed, and Shawn and I are going to watch "Bewitched" (the best we could do on new releases at 7:30 on a Friday night).
This entry was a snooze fest, I know, but try to be happy for us. :)
P.S. BIG idea in the works, very hush-hush, stay tuned....
