Happy Camper

Evening all.  It’s the weekend and I have no plans.  Whoohoo!  Sounds funny to say but I’m SO glad to have a weekend where I can be antisocial and do fun stuff like clean the appliances and cars. :)

Happy to report that I’ve been OP since going back to work after the holiday weekend.  Have met my daily h20 goals and gotten in 40 mins of activity each night!  It hasn’t been super high intensity but that’s okay, just glad to be earning a few APs.  I’m happy and feel really great.  Can’t wait to WI on Tuesday morning.

My day flew by due to the fact that I was out at a meeting for most of it.  Also, got to spend part of the afternoon with my Mom.  I was in desperate need of some new reading material and she was happy to help me out:

One of my favourite things to do is spend a quiet afternoon with a great book, I’m a pretty speedy reader and can get through easy reads in a few hours.  

I started Midwives (by Chris Bohjalian) tonight and it appears to be an interesting read.  Apparently Oprah agrees. 😉

From the website:

The time is 1981, and Sibyl Danforth has been a dedicated midwife in the rural community of Reddington, Vermont, for fifteen years. But one treacherous winter night, in a house isolated by icy roads and failed telephone lines, Sibyl takes desperate measures to save a baby”s life. She performs an emergency Caesarean section on its mother, who appears to have died in labor. But what if–as Sibyl”s assistant later charges–the patient wasn”t already dead, and it was Sibyl who inadvertently killed her?

As recounted by Sibyl’s precocious fourteen-year-old daughter, Connie, the ensuing trial bears the earmarks of a witch hunt except for the fact that all its participants are acting from the highest motives–and the defendant increasingly appears to be guilty. As Sibyl Danforth faces the antagonism of the law, the hostility of traditional doctors, and the accusations of her own conscience, Midwives engages, moves, and transfixes us as only the very best novels ever do.

Have you read this book?  I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Off to do a little more reading before heading to bed.  Hope you all have a fabulous weekend.  I’m envious of Memorial Day and wish that we could have another long weekend again. :)
