The Week

by Marinka on September 29, 2012

I don’t want to alarm anyone unnecessarily, but I have a sore throat.

I don’t even know who to blame.

Or how to best milk it.

I decided to stay in bed all day, but now the kids are arguing about who gets to do the laundry. “You did it last time!” one of them hush-yelled to the other so as not to disturb my rest.

“That’s not fair!” the other one signed, “you already got to scrub the toilet bowl!”

But at least I’m reading a book that I love. It’s Where’d You Go, Bernadette and it’s funny and smart and if you have kids in school with sanctimommies very relatable. So thumbs up! (Also, Amazon affiliate link.)  I’m also worried because my book group is reading Telegraph Avenue next and I read five pages and I don’t like it. Please tell me that just like high school, it gets better.

Here are some other things I wrote this week!

What Happens When You Leave the Camera Behind

If You Spank, I Have Some Questions for You

When a Child You Don’t Know Breaks Your Heart

Mouthing Off: Smash Cakes (I co-wrote this with my fellow Mouthies!)

I Volunteered to be Class Mom, How Do I Get Out of It?


What about you? What have you read/written this week that I should be reading/plagiarizing?

Telegraph Ave. does get better but I’ve had to go backwards and reread sections to keep track as it is a bit confusing.

I’ve found it to be engrossing when I can dedicate all of my attention to reading it.

Feel better! Love this roundup format. I feel my reader gets all congested, and this is a great way to easily find posts I wanted to read this week.

I’ve been worried about your sore throat for DAYS. I’m reading, I Suck at Girls, because you recommended it.
