Book Hangover...

I've been reading this book, finally, after years and years of its existence, The Poisonwood Bible, by Barbara Kingsolver. I'm almost to the end!

Last night I went to bed around 10:30, and decided to read a little as usual. At 1:00 I finally had to tear myself away from the book and turn out the light with tears streaming down my face from the subject matter.

The kids were up at 6:00...as usual! Ughh!

Hey Julie!

I just had a chance to catch up on your blog! Good for you for taking the time to journal such an important, eventful year in your family's life...and for sharing it with all of us! You're such a great Mom, and I'm sure you and your family will make the best of this time apart and come through it stronger and closer together! Sooo...MY Paul has about an 80% chance of getting called up this year - the first list comes out in April. I was already thinking about coming down to visit you...that just might give me a little more reason to definitely make it happen! Take care and I'll call soon!

XOXOXO

Julie, Ha, that book frustrated me! It was very well written and a great story, but it got me all bent out of shape! :) I love your blog and enjoy reading it! Give the kiddos a hug!
