Time for another installment of our favorite Monday meme, hosted by Sheila!
I also started Committed: A Skeptic Makes Peace with Marriage by Elizabeth Gilbert. I'm almost done with this one, so expect a review to come soon!
Next up will be Better: A Surgeon's Notes on Performance by Atul Gawande.
By the way, both of these books are on my list of books for the Busy Bookworm Challenge and the Spring Reading Thing, which just started on Saturday!
I think I've given up on Mansfield Park. I just couldn't get into it, which is a shame because I really do love Jane Austen. However, I have started listening to Chains, by Laurie Halse Anderson. I'm not very far into it, but I like it already.
And for the really big news of the day that I feel should be its own post but I couldn't wait until tomorrow to share it with you all: Thursday Keith matched into the family medicine residency we were hoping for, and we'll be moving back home! I cannot tell you how happy it makes us to have this in writing. But wait! There's more! Friday we finally got pre-approved for a home loan, and then Saturday we put in an offer on a house that we absolutely love. And then, Sunday night, that offer was countered, and we accepted! There's still a long way to go, what with all the information we need to gather in order to close, but I'm unbelievably excited and happy and can see the light at the end of the tunnel. So, in honor of such a momentous day, not only do I want to know what you're reading, but I'd love any advice, anecdotes, and general information about your own personal experiences with buying your first house!
