Good Morning!

I have so many cool things that I am working on that my head woke me up at 4 am this morning!
I just laid there in bed, working through all the things that I need to do in my head.  So when my little man wanted to get up at 5:20, I was okay with it.

What am I working on?  Here are some of the things:
Lego Party for my 12 year old
Travel Party
End of Year Banquet for my Mom's Club
Mom's Club Newsletter (due on Monday)
(at least) 2 Science Fair Projects with my kids
Finishing my Disney Album from last year before I go this year
Just Between Friends Consignment Sale
Trip to the snow
Blog post about creating an Altered Book Invitation

I think that there may be more, but my head is spinning right now!  Wish me luck and I hope to have my blog post up soon about the cool way to invite someone to a party.

Book review: "The Friday Night Knitting Club" by Kate Jacobs

Here is my review from the book that I finished in January:

The Friday Night Knitting ClubThe Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I decided to pick up this book since so many people suggested it.  All in all it was a "good" book.  Not really my style, but it did keep my interest for the most part.  There was a lot about knitting in it that maybe if I knitted, I would have found interesting.  I did enjoy how knitting brought together women from multiple backgrounds and abilities, but I did not really "love" the main character, Georgia.  I found her bad self-image hard to keep taking.  All the self-doubt bothered me, so I just couldn't get into her.  I know that most people, especially women, are plagued with huge amounts of self-doubt, but hers was a bit over the top.

I don't plan on reading any others in the series.

Book Review: "11/22/63" by Stephen King

I just finished Stephen King's new book and realized that I have not been updating my Good Reads site since last fall.  So, although, I completed my goal for last year, it doesn't look like it.  I am going to have to go in a update what all I read.  I hope that I can remember it all!  :)

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a huge book by my favorite author.  It took me a lot longer than his books normally take me.  I found all that "history" hard to sift through.  I thought he had an interesting theme though and I really enjoyed the parts that intersected his "It" storyline.

I hope you enjoy it.  Stay tuned for some more reviews!  Plus, I have a new book challenge for this year - 15 books!
