That was kind of exciting. There were a few audios I had been waiting for – a book I didnt know I was getting but was so excited to see I did… and one that caused a poorly imitated happy dance that I was glad I was the only one in the house so I had no witnesses to. 😉
I am not trying to be really secretive about what these treasures were, just that they will show in my In My Mailbox post late tonight and I want to wait until then to reveal what has arrived! On Twitter yesterday a friend asked me if I only posted review books for my Sunday post…. “Oh no”, I replied, any book that comes in to the home is on that list – either by mail, books I have purchases, or have borrowed from the library.
Today I am taking our kinship partner Chance to St Cloud for lunch at Mongo’s (OH YUM!), take a movie in what I hear is the covetted theater in the area with great comfy seating… and a stop at The Army Surplus store which is all for him because he loves that stuff and I thought that would be cool to let him pick out something for Christmas there. The treat for me will be a mandatory stop at Barnes and Noble as I think that is a written law whenever I go to St Cloud. I dont really need a book… but I do want to atleast step inside and breathe in all the words…. (who am I kidding, there will probably be a book leaving with me….)
My son Justin will be meeting us for lunch in St Cloud and then be with us all day as he is on his way home from College and will be staying at the house for the next month. I think that will be very helpful to me as on Sunday, we take our oldest son to Fargo where he will get on a plane and head out to bootcamp in the Navy, Truly a bittersweet weekend that I have described as putting myself through a paper shredder. I am happy for him, and scared, and proud, all rolled into one.
I have a review coming up in a little while today and everyone enjoy your Saturday!
