What I did over winter break instead of blogging

  • puked. Gross. but true.
  • cuddled a sick baby. Way less gross, much more awesome. She's so busy crawling and pulling herself up and trying to eat the world that it's a little nice to have her cuddly and needy again.
  • Christmas'ed. Very nice.
  • Ate. Ate. Ate.
  • Lunch dated.
  • Anniversaried.
  • Cabined with husband's fam.
  • Speed Scrabbled a little
  • People-watched my head off at some hilarious parties.
  • Enjoyed Slumdog Millionaire
  • Met up with some buddies from the olden days
  • Read East of Eden AND IT IS BLOWING MY MIND. Anybody else read it? I started it thinking it would be kind of a chore (check me out, reading for RS book club) and now I can't stop thinking about it. Have you read it? That Cathy is the creepiest villain ever. Each description made me shudder. Poor Cal. Crazy Aron. Awesome Samuel. Like I say, blowing my mind.
I'm pretty excited about starting my last semester of school. Except for my mission and a few brief stints of full-time work, you're reading the blog of a girl whose been in school since 1987.

I just read East of Eden for the 2nd time a couple of months ago... I agree with you, Cathy is one evil person.

We saw Slumdog Millionaire last night--it was so well done!

I haven't read that. I'll have to put it on my list of reads.

Okay, I think that's enough recommendations to convince to read it...next month. And I am so excited for you to be in your LAST semester! Congratulations. But, based on the fact that you were ASKING for books to read during your summer BREAK, I have the feeling you're going to miss it a little (don't hate me for saying it). It was weird for me to be "done" after 20 years of school and no breaks, but very welcome!

East of Eden is one of my all-time favorite books. I read it every year or two and absolutely LOVE the characters! They are my friends.

(Not in a creepy, wow-you-have-fictional-friends way; but in a wow-you-read-stuff way. Clearly. Ahem.)
