This week I finished a book that was out of my comfort zone, Science Fiction. Science Fiction is really, really not my thing, at all. But after picking it up and putting it down about 3 different times, extending the check out at the library once and trying it yet again, I finished it. Not only did I finish it, I devoured it after I got to about Chapter 7. If you have some time and like to read, pick up The Host by Stephanie Meyer. Even if you think it’s not your thing.
My new thing this week is letting my 5 year old check the mail while I wait at the door. This seems like nothing, but the mere fact that he is so close to the road is terrifying to me. It’s my baby step in encouraging independence.
