Happy Thursday! I've decided to combine my confessions with my May book review because I was not thrilled with the one book I read in May. I would rather not waste an entire post on it, so let's get right to it.
May 2016 Reads
The Crown by Kiera Cass (Selection Book #5)
I wrapped up the Selection series with the last book. The first three books follow America Singer and Prince Maxon, and books four and five follow their daughter, Eadlyn. I was so unhappy with this book and a few of the things in it that I will not be recommending it to any of my students. The first three books are appropriate for seventh grade girls, and so I will only be recommending those books to them--not books four and five.
(I'm also reading the end of The 5th Wave trilogy this month, and I'm not loving it either. I'm done reading series after this one!)
Now onto Thursday Confessions!
Dustin and I bought a wiffle bat and ball set to play.....with each other. Since it's just us two and zero children, we have to find ways to entertain ourselves. We're also pretty competitive against one another. We only had a little bit of time Tuesday night to get out in the backyard and pitch to each other and no time last night, and it's making me want to play tonight if it's not raining when D gets off work!
We haven't installed a sprinkler system yet, so Dustin sets out a few sprinklers each night to water our grass. It drives me crazy when he walks back in the house after moving a sprinkler because there's grass all over his shoes and he tracks it all over the hardwood. And then I'm sweeping it up....multiple times a night. Our next house will have a legit mudroom that we will enter into from the garage where people can leave their dirty shoes.
Also on the topic of cleaning--I'm confessing that I don't clean our entire house. As in, I only clean the rooms we use. I'm sure that sounds bad but I do clean everything like once a six months haha! When we built our house, we built it to live in for a very long time with a bigger family so we have lots of unused rooms. Why clean them when no one uses them??
I hate cleaning our tile shower--I was talking to Janie about this yesterday and we both agreed it's the worst thing ever to clean.
I'm enjoying watching the first hour or two the The Today Show every morning!
I still need to buy one more bathing suit for our vacation--ughhhh. I feel like buying bathing suits are the worst. I bought a one piece this year from Victoria's Secret and I love it so I want one more. But I'm longer waisted so I'm having a harder time finding one. I'm too afraid to order online but I may have to last minute. I'm going shopping Saturday and I'll end up ordering online if I don't find anything in a store. Anyone else as picky as I am when it comes to bathing suit shopping?
That's it for my confessions today--what's going on with you?
