Whatever Wednesday

OK from the Corporette forum/comments from a few weeks ago to this post HERE to Blair's Head Band post here....LEAN IN is certainly a topic of discussion among women.


A quick overview for me is this- do what is best for you. LEAN IN if you know that is what you need - LEAN OUT if that is what you need.

I read the book - I have a lot of thoughts on it. I will discuss at a later time - but for now - with so much discussion on twitter, the blogs, op eds - what are your thoughts?


I need more book recommendations. I read a lot and fast. I try to read at least one book to 1.5 books a week (depending on size and time constraints) - I also listen to them on CD in the car and if I feel antisocial for lunch I will close my office door and read. Like I said, I read a lot. I love reading and learning. Sometimes it is for escape and other times it is to learn. All of it is for enjoyment.

In the Months of March and April I read:
Lean In
Bringing Home the Birkin
Proof of Heaven
The Language of Flowers
Across Many Mountains
Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption

All were good in various ways.


31 days until we get married.

31 DAYS.

I may be going a little bit insane, but I am ready. I have no worries about B and I and our relationship. I am only worried about things going smoothly - and even that I don't care. As long as we say our I DOs - I am happy.


This weekend we go to Dallas for our Couples Shower thrown by B's Aunt.  I cannot wait.


I want spaghetti for dinner.  BADLY.

That is all.

First, 31 days! Wow! So excited for you guys. I know your wedding will be every bit as lovely as you are.

In a couple weeks, I am heading back to work full-time for the first time in 17 years. I don't know that I'd recommend a 17 year break for everyone! I feel lucky to have had the time at home to nurture my family, but somewhere around year ten I probably lost a bit too much of myself. It feels good to reclaim it again, but of course I have many concerns about managing it all.

Have you read The Happiness Project? I think you'll enjoy it (or at least get a little something out of it).
