My life outside books:
My mom, daughter, and I went to see the movie Little Women. I thought the costumes and sets were wonderfully done and I liked the movie. However, I am not sure I agree with the choice to cut from "now" and "then" so much as it isn't necessary. I felt like the first hour was too frenetic for me, but the second hour or so calmed down and I enjoyed it.

It was a busy week at work, which is good since I enjoy my job more when I am interacting with people rather than just working on my own.
