"Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars, points of light and reason. ...And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn’t see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason, for anything."
This was a busy week again for me. We had year end close at work, which is already a stressful time. Add to the fact that I feel ready to pop, and it was ten times as worse. Everything worked out well though and we finished on time and correctly!!
Saturday, hubby and I had our birthing class. It started at 9am and went to 3:30pm. It wasn't as bad as we thought though and I did learn a lot of useful information. Plus we got a tour of the hospital, which was nice. We took both sets of parents up on Sunday and showed them where they will need to park and where they can enter the hospital and check in with security. It was a lot of walking!! I also had a doctors appointment this past week, which I wrote about in my "When do you think this baby is coming?" post.
Reading wise, I had a slower week. I did finish Darkly Dreaming Dexter, which I rather enjoyed. That review is here. It was a good start to a series that I'd like to read more of. I have the next two in the series and would enjoy getting to them this year.
I'm also about half way through Inkheart. I'm really enjoying the book, but it is not reading nearly as fast as I thought it would. It's much darker too. I'm hoping to finish it up early this week. I don't have a lot of plans - I just want to keep the house clean incase we have to leave for the hospital, and I'd like to clean my car!
Here's what else I plan to read this week:
Murder on the Menu is a repeat from last week. I just ran out of time and didn't get to it this time around. These are normally really quick reads though, and I enjoyed the first in the series.
I've had The Kitchen Boy on my TBR pile for a long time now. It's a short book, but a very powerful story. This is also a time period that I don't know a lot about so I'm really looking forward to this one!
The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch is one that I've hear wonderful things about. I'm reading this one for the Memorable Memoirs challenge and I'm looking forward to it.
That's my reading for the week. What's on your plate?
