Getting Ready

My babies


graduated from college. Yes, they are quadruplets. Smile

Actually, they graduated from colleges – 4 different ones. Next Saturday we are celebrating their graduations. There is so much to do: food shop, stain the deck, clean the house, cook, shop some more, decorate. Then, of course, are the things I want to get done before the company arrives: wash the windows, paint every room, buy and hang new curtains, clean the carpets. Okay, I have to let go of some things. So, I am making a list of what I can reasonably achieve, which brings me back to food shop, clean the house, decorate and call a caterer. Yes, my husband and I did manage to stain the deck, and there are a few windows that definitely need washing. I need to remind myself that friends and family are coming to celebrate – not to check out the cleanliness of my house. Hmm, do you think it is unreasonable to want to plant a garden in the front of the house and pave the walkway to the house?

WWW Wednesday

Today I am joining the WWW Wednesday Party.
The first W is, “What are you currently reading?” I am presently reading:
 This book was recommended to me by my cousin. I am a special education teacher. She is a retired high school English teacher. She told me that every teacher should read this book. So, I am. I am only on page 25, but the 24 pages I did read captivated me.

The second W is, “What did you recently finish?” I just finished and wrote an review for
I met the author Debra A. Boyle She was seeking people to read her book and write an Amazon review for her. I agreed to do this. I am really glad that I did because this is a really good book! Debra is a professional tutor. The book is about her experiences of twenty years of tutoring.

The final W is, “What do you think you will read next?” I am going to read
I purchased this book at BJs a while back just for some summer reading, and summer is here! Yay!

Happy reading!
