So last night, as my head fell down into the divot of the ergonomically correct pillow Steve's chiropractor promises will realign my entire muscular, nervous, AND skeletal systems (mine doesn't have the little pump you see in the picture; apparently I can't be trusted with that level of technology) when I realized that I forgot to share the one bright spot in my trip to the hospital with my Mom last week - the paperback ray of sunshine and happiness that got me through the long day (and even made me forget about the gross tuna sandwich):
On my way out the door that morning, I grabbed Julie Carobini's new book, Chocolate Beach, and stuffed it into my purse. Wow, was I glad I did. This is a fun romp through beach life, friendship, the dilemmas of marriage and in-laws and motherhood. One look at Julie's website makes it clear that Chocolate Beach is a perfect beach read. What I'm hear to tell you is that it also makes the perfect accompaniment to a long morning in a hospital waiting room. (I'm guessing Julie's publicist never thought to pursue that angle... ) Anyway, a huge THANK YOU to Julie for keeping me entertained during a tough day!
