I seriously hate Arizona right now. It's 110 outside and to me it feels like 150. I'm so hot all the time now! So this evening, I decided to take a cold bath in order to cool off. Except for the one problem that we have NO COLD WATER PEOPLE! THERE'S NO COLD WATER IN ARIZONA RIGHT NOW! There's something seriously wrong with that! GRRR!

Books I Have Read and Loved Recently

I've had a lot more time to read since I stopped working. I used to read all the time, but stopped when I was in college. It's probably a good thing I don't read as much as I used to. Once I start a book, it consumes me and I can't stop until I finish. I would feel bad for neglecting Josh, but I get neglected all the time when he plays computer games, so I figure this just evens the score a little.

Here are a few of the books I've read and loved recently, for those who are looking for some ideas.

These is My Words by Nancy Turner. I loved it. It's a story about an Arizona pioneer (not LDS) and it made me realize that people were crazy for ever moving down to this place. Why are we still here people? It's 114 degrees outside!

The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak. I loved it as well. It's set during WWII and is written from Death's perspective. So don't expect a happy book. But seriously, a very good book.

The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver. Again. Loved it, loved it. This is about a family who's crazy pastor/missonary father made them move to the Congo in Africa during the 60's or 70's. I hope our missionaries never act like that. And that I never have to live in Africa.

We're now reading the Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde, but I haven't started it yet, so I don't know if I can recommend it or not. If anyone else has any good books that I could suggest for my bookclub, let me know.

Let the countdown begin!

Check out my freaky long arms in this picture with the massive veins on my hands. I am so veiny right now! It's kind of sick.

I am officially at 30 weeks now. Thanks goodness! Dang this whole pregnancy thing takes a long time! Lucky for me, things are still really easy. I get backaches if I sit for too long, but other than that, everything has been great. My skin and hair are awesome right now-I can easily go 4 days without washing and no one would even know. Seriously. It almost makes me want to be pregnant all the time. Almost. But not quite.

Josh and I may possibly be agreeing on a name!  Still too soon to say what it is yet, just in case I jinx this and he changes his mind, but WAHOO!!
