"Don’t spend so many Mondays wishing they were Fridays. Make good use of those Fridays, so you have great stories to tell on Monday."
Don’t all people take copious notes while getting a pedicure?
This morning my mother volunteered to watch my little girl for a few hours so I could have some quiet time and get my toes done. I thought I would take advantage and start reading California; however, I felt a bit like I was betraying Frida. She was inviting me into her apocalyptic world and I was having a spa experience—talk about juxtaposition.
I began note taking using Cornell Notes. It lasted until the break on page 8. I had never used this style of notes before, so I am really glad I experimented with them. I am now a firm believer that they should be used for non-fiction, informative pieces. I could have filled my entire notebook with just the first few chapters.
I hope that these notes do not contain spoilers…I figure that the first handful of pages won’t give too much away before next week.
We promise this level of professionalism is not required to read with us!
I promise I won’t reblog everything from the book club but honestly this made me tear up.

Me:then you can't watch it.
3 year old:I'm a grown up. See. (Stands talk next to me)
Me:here, come lie down with me while daddy gets ready.
3 year old:noooo. I can't lie down because I'm beautiful.
