Working Mom Wednesday Blog Hop

Hadn't done the Working Mom Wednesday link up lately, so thought I'd particpate this week:

#1 - Set one goal for yourself this week. What will you do to accomplish it?
My goal is to get the camper ready for summer trips. We have a travel trailer that is our home-on-wheels for weekend trips and usually one week-long (on rare ocasion two!) adventure. It's usually out by now, but with all the soggy weather we've had this spring, I haven't been real motivated to go camping. (Because muddy kids and a dog at home is plenty to deal with, let alone in the camper and in the truck!)

I have a day off this week, so that's what I'm doing with it. (Along with a few other household projects that have been falling by the way side... like cleaning the fridge.)

#2- Do you enjoy reading? What are some of your favorite books?
I enjoy reading when I find a really good book. If it's assigned reading, and I'm not "into" it, I find it painful.
Right now I'm reading "Pox: An American History" by Michael Willech. It's about the hitory of smallpox in the United States.

Honestly, I don't feel like I get a lot of time to read. When I get the chance to check out the offerings at the library, I get books on CD to listen to on my 90-minute each way commute. This week, I've been listening to Freakanomics.
My favorite books are usually biographies. One of my favorites was "Into Thin Air," about a group scaling Mount Everest.

  1. Girlfriend! We need to add some FUN to your reading list! Try something by Barbara Kingsolver, like Prodigal Summer. This is NOT an assignment, just a suggestion! ;-) (Remember I am a RETIRED English teacher!)

    Good luck with the camper! Sounds like a good start to a fun summer!
