Thank you so much! I keep trying to respond to your entry but my browser keeps shutting the comment box. I don’t think it likes that weird sidebar thing Tumblr is doing now when you click on someone’s blog.
I am definitely going to get the first book you suggested. It sounds absolutely perfect. Please do let me know how you like the third!
And thank you for your kind words about my mom. The last few years have been a kind of difficult that I couldn’t possibly articulate. But I can say that it has gotten easier. It’s like we have a new normal. It’s incredibly sad, but we’re used to it.
My husband does this CRAZY annoying thing where he’ll ignore something I suggest that he try and then come home from work months later and say “Oh one of my coworkers recommended this Random Thing and it sounds SO AWESOME.” And I’m like, “Oh, you mean that THING I TOLD YOU ABOUT MONTHS AGO?!!?!?!!?!” It’s happened with movies, musicians, restaurants, etc.
It’s happened so many times that it’s kind of a running joke in our marriage. But seriously, it pisses me off.
