Book club. I'm going to love it, I can just feel it! This month we're reading The Bright Side of Disaster by Katherine Center. I'm excited. I loved, loved her other book so much; I'm sincerely looking forward to this one. I think we have a great group of girls assembled, all who love to read and have a night off! I'm anxious for everyone to start getting to know everyone else and it becoming completely comfortable.
I got home last night, mortified, however. When I'm nervous or anxious or flustered or the attention is on me, I get wordy. I talk way too much. So, I found myself chatting a LOT last night. I'm sure I embarrassed myself several times... I complained to Isaac about this and he just kind of laughed, like it was a given and something everyone knows about me, so not to be too hard on myself. I just wish I had clammed up instead! You would think a grown woman would have control over these things by now...Luckily I had a lovely peppermint hot chocolate to distract me part of the time.
I sincerely love my life. Things are so good right now. I'm again amazed at what a night off with friends will do for a state of mind. Such a simple thing, but so necessary to my sanity!
What's in my head today:
(every beat of the heart, railway children: this song reminds me of high school and one of my best friends. i lost track of it several years ago and for some reason convinced myself it was by the mighty lemon drops. i kept getting frustrated that i couldn't find it by them (i wasn't about to ask my sister and admit to not remembering it!). this past week while cleaning up my music library, i stumbled onto it again and felt like an idiot that i had the band wrong all this time. good news is that i've been singing it ever since!)
