A little stroll through the library

I stopped off this afternoon at the library to grab a new book to read. I just finished "Rhett Butler's People," which tells Rhett's side of the "Gone with the Wind" story. Needless to say, I loved it.

Today I went in looking for only one book and came out with four. There is something so soothing about walking through the fiction section reading the summaries until I find stories that pique my interest. Today I picked up "Waiting for Teddy Williams" (which I swear I have checked out before but never got around to reading), "Stardust," "The Lovely Bones," and "Sushi For Beginners." With summer coming, I cannot think of better ways to spend the quiet nights than curled up in bed reading until the late hours.

A week from today Tim starts his new adventure in Grosse Pointe and I start getting prepared for the Ireland adventure. Time flies!

Yeah, I know I hardly ever write anymore. . .

But I thought I'd do a quick update. May was a good month - I finished my Masters degree, my kids took their High School Assessment tests, we squeezed in a weekend at Busch Gardens, and my parents drove in for a long weekend.

I also had to get reading glasses because apparently I have the eyes of a forty year old. So much for my amazing eyesight. Moments like this make me feel old.

Now it is June - school is almost done and I am counting down the days until Ireland (24 in case you were wondering). But first - Tim graduates! On Friday we will be up in NYC to watch Dr. Romanoski recieve his degree. I could not be more proud of him right now. We should have a blast catching up with his med school friends (or in my case, meeting many for the first time) and celebrating with the family. Four years have gone by surprisingly fast. . .

. . .and it dawned on me last month that I graduated college five years ago. Wow.
