I don't have a baby yet. I am 7 days overdue.
Moving right along!
Lately I have been filling my time with walking, coffees and lunches with friends, laundry, watching tv and reading. If it turns out that something that I thought was recorded on my PVR isn't actually recorded, it's as if the world has ended and I may or may not get very irritated. Then I realize it's TV and get over myself.
I have heard a lot about The Hunger Games from a few different blogs (like Healthy Tipping Point and Healthy Ashley) and thought I should give the series a try. I really liked 1984, which is another "big brother" type book, and I also liked Twilight, a teenager series of books about vampires and love, so why not try this seemingly mesh of the two! (I'm sure George Orwell would cringe at the thought of his book and twilight being mentioned in the same sentence... sorry George!) I read through the first of the series in two or three days, and so off I went to get the next two right away. (I tried putting the series on hold at the library, and I was about 200th in line for them for all three, so I just bought them instead.) They're really good, in spite of being written in first person, which I tend not to like. They keep me interested, have a LITTLE taste of a love story (I'm only halfway through the second book right now, so the love factor could get more or less important from here forward), lots of big brother type stuff, and a little bit of Harry Potter esque challenges (which is another series I went wild over). If you like any of these books, I suggest you give them a try!
I'm off to pretend like I don't care I'm still pregnant!
