  • My Own Books--I read 21 books off my shelves from March 15 to May 15, 2019.
My life outside books:
Students officially come back to school this next week so things will begin to ramp up at work. I have a new colleague (the English Coach) who seems really nice; I think she will fit in with our group.

I did not get into the Google program, which is a bummer. However, I realize I feel more sad because it means I won't go to New York and get to see my daughter and niece at their colleges. So, I'm thinking of the money I'll save!

My daughter leaves for her second year at Vassar tomorrow; I'm really going to miss her. We've had a great summer of "us" time; it's great to see the adult she is becoming.

This past week , in addition to work, I have read and gone for walks with friends I haven't seen in a while so it's been nice and relaxing.
