The Friday List

Thanks for your words yesterday. Whether by comment, tweet, or email. It means a lot and I’m thankful for your encouragement, and even more thankful that there are several of you going through the same thing.

Proportionally speaking, the amount of toe lint Jansen gets from his socks is like if we pulled a scarf out from between our toes.

Thanks to my husband’s wonderful gift of the Kindle, I’m reading another book! I must say, this is one of the very few benefits of pumping. I’m forced to sit still! I’m on my 4th book since I had Jansen. I know that probably isn’t much to many of you, but that’s huge for me. I’ve read The Girtfriend’s Guide to the First Year, Half Broke Horses, The Glass Castle, and now I’m reading Pioneer Woman’s Black Heels. I recommend all of them! I’m almost done with Black Heels, what should I read next?

Jansen gets to attend his first baseball game tonight. He’s pretty pumped about it. I am too. I plan to give him a quick rundown of the game and discuss his future options regarding positions. Obviously he’s too young to make any decisions on the matter… he doesn’t even know if he’s right handed or left handed yet.

I think it’s safe to say that Jansen is a super fan of apples. He loves them. Almost too much, I think! He had them for the first time last night and he cried between each bite. It was pretty ridiculous but also cute.

    I just finished reading Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell and found it fascinating.

    I just finished reading Heaven is For Real (also on the kindle).
    It was #1 on NYT Best Sellers list for awhile. It was better than I thought.

    Have you read Time Travelers Wife yet? I really liked it!! Another interesting read is Special Topics in Calamity Physics and no it really has nothing to do with physics.

    Now, what happens when Jansen finds out he’s a Yankees fan? I mean, I’m just putting it out there…it could happen.

    Ah! I want to read the Pioneer Woman’s Black Heels books. Have you read the Hunger Games series yet? They are pretty good and I think you’d like them. Or anything by Jane Green (my favorite is Mr. Maybe or Jemima J).

    I hope Jansen enjoys his first baseball game; that’s super exciting. I can’t wait for baseball season!

    You have to read The Help. It was phenomenal. I also second The Hunger Games suggestion. My husband is actually finishing book three right now and it totally addicted as well!! πŸ™‚

    I just finished Black Heels and Tractor Wheels! (Like 10 minutes ago, not kidding.) Such a great story!

    What is with the toe lint??? It’s unbelievable.

    2. Isn’t that the truth?!

    3. I read them as individual posts – as a book would be much easier I think!

    4. Love it πŸ™‚

    Not sure what kind of lit you like, but The Help is an excellent book, and The Hunger Games is a good series too. Jodi Picolt is another author I like.
