The Book Thief...AWESOME!

I have been in the funnest book club for about...I don't really remember...three years maybe??? I have lots of favorites and this months book has made the cut! The Book Thief by Markus Zusak ROCKS!!!!

In the words of the narrator... who happens to be death...
"It's just a small story really, about among other things:
*A girl
*Some words
*An accordionist
*Some fanatical Germans
*A Jewish fist fighter
*And quite a lot of thievery"

What I love about being in a book club is reading books I would never choose for myself. Like when I began this book I thought in my head...I don't want to read this right now and I longed to put it down and read something else...but I made myself read...for book club, and again, as happens so often...I LOVED IT! I laughed and I cried....I loved it! The writing is beautiful, the story is touching, the characters are so real; Leisel, Rudy, Max and even Death... I want to call you up to see how you've been! I am sooooo sad it had to end! I recommend it to everyone! An easy, fun and enjoyable read!

Poor blogger x2

I'm such a poor blogger, updating so infrequently! I've been wanting to post about my training and races for awhile now but have tonight I have started a whole new blog about that very topic. Now I can get behind and forget to post on two blogs instead of one! My new blog is stupid girl running....maybe I should start a third...stupid girl blogging???

Don't Stop Yet!!!!

Here is Brock at the track meet, in the sack race. He was in first place but thought the race was finished so he stopped. Then he figured out that it was not finished and he started again!!!! Good thing he is such a good hopper! He got second place but it looks to me like he still should of won 1st!

Brock running in class shuttle:

Brock also got second place in the standing long jump!

RNC In Pt Obstetrics...yea!

Check one thing off my list! I took my RNC and passed! My friend Jonie came with and passed too. We were both "VERY STRONG" in all categories but one! All our studying paid off! How did we study you ask?

Sleeping hard is important to brain function!

Good nutrition is paramount!

Meditation is key

Get your aggression out!

Then smile and just pass...Duh!

Valentines Day...Yea!

Love period mushy stuff. Favorite authors are of course Austin, Bronte and Gaskell so it follows that I simply love period movies. I think I own three quarters of the films featured here. Anyway, Happy V-Day!

Oh yea, pause the music player at the bottom before hitting play!

Resolutions 2010

Well it’s February so I guess I’ve procrastinated enough…it’s time to write down some New Year’s resolutions! In 2010 I will study for and pass the RNC in In-Patient Obstetrics. I will complete the same triathlons I did last year but beat my times for some new personal bests! I will never let a month go by that I don’t attend the temple. I will take a Spanish class! That’s it…I like to keep it simple to give myself a better chance at being successful!

This is not a resolution, but it is very funny. I talk a lot about babies since it is my job. Emma recently asked what women need to eat to make a baby! Hee hee, I couldn’t help but laugh a little. Good logic I guess since what you eat ends up in your tummy!
