Happy Father's Day!
I am so happy to be with my dad today. We are taking him out for brunch at our favorite restaurant which gives out a pint glass to fathers on this day. We will also probably play some games and maybe watch a movie in addition to a light dinner of hamburgers.
Last week, I shared about how I hadn't been feeling that great to which you responded with an outpouring of well wishes that was much appreciated. I am happy to report that this week at work was excellent with Thursday especially being a standout. I hope to be able to rely on that mood to carry me through the rest of the month (how are we almost halfway through the year already? I really don't know.)
I've been talking about updating my review archive and finally made a start on that. So far I have finished updating through 2012 so that just means 6 more months of reviews to update. I'm still working on catching up on comments, my perpetual goal. Reading is about average-I have liked most of the books I've tried recently but am still craving an outstanding YA read.
We had our second softball game last week, which was another victory. I am pleased to say that I got my second hit and I also scored a run. My (female) friend scored an inside the park home run, which earned many cheers-we have a couple guys on the team who have scored several home runs but never a girl so we were just ecstatic for her accomplishment. I've also been participating in a 3 times a week boot camp in addition to working with a trainer (I feel so luxurious saying that) and I can really feel a difference especially in the back of my thighs. They feel tighter and less flabby and I feel so strong and powerful because of it. It's really pushing me to continue all my hard work.
Reviews to Come: Lots of 2013 releases across genres
This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E Smith
A Moment Comes by Jennifer Bradbury
The Lucy Variations by Sara Zarr

Identity Theft by Anna Davies
Antigoddess by Kendare Blake-this isn't out until September but Amazon requires a review within 45 days of receipt and I'm approaching that deadline. I don't want to post on Amazon three months before posting on my blog so you're getting a super early look at this book.
