let me tell you why i love my mother.
the last time she came to visit, she brought me this book and told me to read it, except for the sex chapter. so i read that chapter first.
let me tell you, this book was SO interesting. even more interesting were the lines in the book that i came across every now and then that my mom had whited out. only, i was so curious about what would have been so bad for her to cover up, that i would hold the pages up to the light so i could see what was under the white out. that probably defeated the purpose. sorry mom.
but back to the book. it was written by a neuropsychiatrist who explains the way women’s brains are wired and operate – from the birth of the female brain, to the mommy brain, to the mature female brain. the book is a combination of findings from various articles and books, along with accounts of patients from her clinic and explains what is occurring in the female brain during each phase of her life.
read it. you will love it.
and it will make you feel a lot less crazy.

i like to read. [that's not the problem, in case you were wondering].
the problem is that i would rather read a book about the constitution for my own satisfaction than read from my biology textbook for school. i think i’m just taking the wrong kind of classes.
if i read as much for my classes as i do for leisure, i would probably be getting straight a’s. but it’s only the first month of the semester – still plenty of time for studying up on plant reproduction [kill me].
my recent reads include:
the tipping point
the female brain
the screwtape letters
and the time traveler’s wife
right now i’m working on the 5,000 year leap.
my goal is to read at least one book each month this year, including church books.
so what should be next on my list? i would love your suggestions…
