Let Me Introduce You To….

my new friend.

This is Kindle.

Kindle, this is my friendly community at Santa Beso.

I used some of my birthday money and bought this wonderful piece of equipment about a month ago. I now have a new BFF.

I just love her. Actually it could be a he, but I’m calling it a her. Anything this smart and amazing has to be a her.

Most of you know that I am not a gadget or gizmo type of person. Not because I don’t want to. Right now our family is still hitting the whole debt reduction thing hard so looking cool sometimes gets put on the backburner. Sorry, yo!

Just check out my dumb unintelligent  phone. Believe me that’s not me complaining. I’m just stating the fact. I don’t have a smart phone, and the opposite of smart is……. well, you know.

I text- not because I love to, but because if I don’t I’ll lose about half of my friends. So I’m still s.l.o.w. at texting. Nerd. I. Am.

My new friend is a small step into the world of cool that is making me do a happy break dance, and screaming to get the house PAID OFF so I can get more gadgets like this.

I’ve already read one book after a little over a month. Amazing right? Who has time for reading with two kiddos? I do. Now.

Enough of me gloating. What I’m really wanting to boast about is the book I just finished reading.

I have come across several books that are interesting. I enjoy reading them, but it seems like they roll off my brain in about a day or so. I have very few books on my list that I would call life changing. I mean to the point that I feel like reading them once a year would do me good. This is one of those books.

The 10 Habits of Happy Mothers by Meg Meeker M.D. is absolutely the best book I’ve read on being a mother. Ever. And I read a lot before becoming a mother and a few more since then. I have never cried reading a book, until I read this one. I mean the big ugly boo hoo that makes your hubby crack the door and ask if everything is okay. This book is amazing, and I would dare to say if you are a mother and don’t read Dr. Meeker’s book- you’re doing yourself a great disservice.

I have felt more content as a full-time home manager than I have ever since I started staying home with my babies, which has been going on four years now. Throughout this book I sensed someone cheering me on to do the thing I feel most called to do in my life. Dr. Meeker’s right there pumping the pom-poms and saying the right thing at the right time.

If you’ve read this book, I’d love to hear your opinion. And if you do get a chance to read it- let me know. Most of my friends IRL are getting tired of me talking about it to them, so it’s been nice to borrow your ear, or eyes, for a minute.

Happy Weekend Everyone!!!
