Some of this and a little of that

So we went to Disney World. We got back on Tuesday. It was lovely and we had so much fun. It was one of those vacations where you fall into bed exhausted, but so happy. Good on the vacation front, not so much on the reading one. I am about 200 pages into The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay. I am enjoying it so much, but it's an intricate book. It's not something you can just breeze through, especially at the tune of 600 plus pages.

Now we are back home and trying to catch up on loads of laundry and phone calls and picking up with our crazy lives. I finally found the missing CD for the audio book I have been listening to on and off (it was in one of David's DVD cases...don't you love when you put something somewhere that makes sense at the time and no sense at all after the fact?). The bad news is that I have no more renewals of Exit the Actress. So it's back to the library with that one. That's sort of sad for me. I hate not finishing books, but it just wasn't holding my interest. That struck me as strange because I studied theatre in college. I know all about Nell Gwyn and she is fascinating! Maybe it's the listening to it that isn't working. A lot of people really enjoyed this book. So for now, I'm letting it go, but I think I will try to pick it up in print in the future.

This weekend, the hubs is hosting a Thanksgiving Dinner for the youth group at our church. Other than that, I hope to get lots of reading done, avoid catching David's cold, and come back with a shiny book review for you at the beginning of next week.

Have a lovely weekend, ladies and gents!
