Wait...what day is it? The calendar tells me it's Thursday which means I completely missed Tuesday, blog post and all, and I apologize.
No, I wasn't having a breakdown even though the kids are out of school, I was just absorbed in a spectacular book, The Day Before by Lisa Schroeder. I've never read a verse novel before but I found it gorgeous. I LOVED it.
The prose is both concise and lyrical.. It reminded me of a series of flash fiction pieces all put together to create a complete story. The entire novel takes place in the span of a day. I don't do spoilers so I'll only tell you there's sorrow, happiness, love, longing and hope within its pages. I read parts of it twice. Highly recommended.
I would also like to take a moment to wish my mom a happy birthday. She is my best friend, my strength when things get tough and I don't know what the kids and I would do without her. Happy Birthday, Mom!
I will be back Tuesday with a rant of sorts regarding a certain reality show that's become a real annoyance to me. Until then, may your days be sunny and your writing go forth and multiply.
