odds and ends and a question for you
My BFF Carrie texted me the other night that she was desperate for a Salt and Chocolate post, so here you go, Carrie. Anything for you!
Basically, I've been stressed and anxious these last several weeks. Oh, and we've been sick, too. My way of dealing with the stress tends to be eating and shopping. You would not believe how stuffed my little closet is right now! Even Ken has been a super good sport and accompanied me to the Gap a couple times recently. I gained a bunch of weight over the holidays, but I'm back on Weight Watchers now (along with my friend Donna) and I'm down 5.8 pounds and feeling better already. Eating right makes me feel pleasantly in control and I'm enjoying that.
I can see summer vacation looming in the not to distant future, for which I am deeply grateful. Yay for summer!
I have a question for you guys. I loved Jane Eyre so so much, and I felt bereft when I finished the audiobook. I'm a member of Audible now, so what do you recommend for my next book? I never thought I'd be a fan of audiobooks because I was so content listening to podcasts on my daily commute, but there was something so beautiful and uplifting about Jane Eyre that I want to listen to more books. Do send recommendations!
