I bet you guys thought I was gone forever, but that is not the case.
Eye Issues: UNFORTUNATELY In early April I had an eye issue where I essentially burned the top layer of both my eyes by using the wrong contact solution and could could see for a week and could't read for 3 weeks. So no internet for me.
Italy: FORTUNATELY my eyes were better around the first of May. Then... the Hubby and I went to Italy for vacation. It was the trip of the lifetime. I planned it the way I do things. By looking up things and online, planning a budget, and seeing how it went. It was FANTASTIC.
We went to Rome, Sardinia, Siena, Florence, Pisa, and Venice. Learning about a different culture was life-changing. And my view of food has changed entirely.
While on vacation, I read:
Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walt
Waking up Pregnant by Mira Lyn Kelly
and half of Tatiana and Alexander by Paullina Simons
Not very much for 18 days, I know.
I also watched The Book Thief on the plane and thought it was well done.
I listened to Partials by Dan Wells but didn't finish that either.
Now I'm back and catching up at work. More reading to come too (I hope).
