The weeks of my husband working at night and sleeping in the day are over. And by my husband working at night and sleeping in the day I mean me being awake all the time. I am a Jewish Mother even though I am nobody's mother. Being up the extra hours in the night the last few weeks has given me a chance to read more and get caught up on all the TV shows I had backing up our DVR. One night while I was reading, I had to stop and laugh at the situation. I always laught when Suki is on the bed because I said it would never happen and I eat those words daily. She wags her tail as she sleeps in forbidden territory. I believe now I am the one in her space.
If you are looking for a good book to read, I highly recommend Jann Arden's new book, Falling Backwards. I am not just saying that because she is in Meeting In The Ladies Room and photographing her was a highlight of my life. The book is great! You will laugh, you will cry, your heart will be warmed, you will be inspired, you will relate. You will realize you can do anything if you set your mind to it. You will also wish you had her mom.
I know a lot of people in America don't get who she is--but--you probably do if you think back to a certain song you played on repeat when you were mad at your boyfriend in the early 90's. I feel bad describing or defining her by that song because that doesn't at all cover it but I think that is what most people in America know her from. In Canada, she is a household name like Oprah except Oprah doesn't sing. Imagine if Oprah could sing! Anyway, it is a beautiful book about Jann's life.
When I wasn't reading at 3AM, I got hooked on Welcome To Sweetie Pies. Would it be wrong of me to convince my niece to go to college in St. Louis just so I could get some fried chicken and corn bread when visiting her? I swear I can smell the fried chicken when the show starts. I am drooling just writing this.
We are headed up to San Francisco at the end of the month and I am so looking forward to it. I can't wait to walk and eat and walk and eat and walk and eat. I need another book to read with my hot chocolate in the hotel lobby, do you have any suggestions?
