Friday Books: I'm Out of the Loop
First.. I'm out of the loop, because my computer died, and it will be a few days before we figure out what to do about it. It's so super old that it needs to be replaced; fixing no longer makes sense. I'm excited to get something new, but it's a hassle trying to figure out exactly what. This time I intend to go with a lap top, though.. not a desktop. If I'm sporadic about appearing at my blog, it's because we're trying to catch up to stuff from the old and getting me settled at the new.
Second, as for books, I'm still reading We Need to Talk About Kevin. I'm about 60% through. At first I really disliked the mother character. I dislike her less now, but she's still not my favorite person. I find myself feeling squirmy because I can actually relate with some of the things she says about being a mother. It's the hardest job on earth. I guess I can just thank my lucky stars that my kids turned out great and are both fine adults. Sometimes it feels like it was in spite of me, not because of.
I hope to finish the book this weekend. Should be an interesting movie (coming out soon). Kinda creepy, though. I'm curious to see how they do it as a movie.
