Update September 20, 2019

Hi Everyone!

This was a good week! IL took his first unsupported step (just one so far)! Plus M and D went to the climate strike Friday. After 1.5 hours on the bus each way, I expected both of them to droop, but they enjoyed themselves, learned about the importance of standing up for their rights, and learned more about climate change.

Aaron and I were going to top that off by doing a walking half marathon (pushing a stroller) on Saturday. We had been hoping to do it all year, but we had the kids this weekend, and couldn’t figure out logistics until today – only to find out that they don’t do same-day registration. 😭 I guess there’s always next year.

Aaron and I have agreed upon recharge weekends. I will take the last weekend of every month to do a Friday – Sunday readathon (there’s one hosted on Litsy called #24B4Monday ) and happily Dewey’s falls on my recharge weekend in October. In exchange, Aaron gets a recharge weekend on the 3rd weekend of each month in which he gets to play Minecraft to his heart’s content.

So I’m really looking forward to next weekend.

I’m currently finishing up Good Omens on audio, and making progress on The Gene: An Intimate History on hard copy.

  1. It is very cool that the young ones participated in the Climate Strike. When it comes down to it, this is the most important issue that we face.

    Recharge weekends sound like a great idea.


  2. Whew. On just one step…Before too long…oh…yeah, you know. 🙂

    I’m with the other Brian that recharge weekends sound great. I try to recharge most weekends, but not always able to do so because I usually work one Saturday a month.

    Who is the narrator or narrators for Good Omens? Just curious. I loved the print book, but it’s been years since I read.


    1. Good Omens was narrated quite well by Martin Jarvis.

      It’s hard to recharge every weekend what with my taking care of 3 kids and my parents. There just always seems to be something distracting me from my goals. So I take what I can get.
