Just going through some stuff, downsizing our massive loads of crap, and whatnot, and came across this little gem that the Almanzas sent me a few years ago.
That's some good sense of humor right there!
Speaking of downsizing, or spring cleaning, or whatever it is I'm doing...
I took a bag of books to Half Price Books last weekend. Of course, while I was there, I looked around and found a book that looked interesting. I said to Jeff, "I hope they offer at least $7.50 'cuz I want to buy this book." Luckily, they offered enough for my books I was able to buy the new-to-me book and pocket $5. Score!
So, Book Review: Almost Amish by Kathryn Cushman
The back of the books says:
"Over-committed and overwhelmed, Julie Charlton is at the breaking point. She knows she should feel blessed as a mother and wife - but she just feels exhausted. And then, the miraculous happens. Her sister-in-law Susan, a Martha Stewart-in-training, lands the chance to participate in a reality TV series about trying to live like the Amish and needs another family to join her. It's just the break Julie needs."
This is a good, easy read. It didn't take long, not much thought, which is how I usually like to read. I read it in about 4 days, in amongst my regular life. Maybe the premise of the story spoke to me since it's been so hectic at work lately, but man, makes me think I would rather spend my day taking care of the house & making meals more than spending 45+ hours a week at work...
And if it were reversed, I would probably wish for a job to go to.
And now I have a book to sell back to Half Price Books. :-)
