“The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest” by Stieg Larsson

The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's NestThe final book in the Lisbeth Salander books, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest begins where the last book left off. Having barely survived an attack on her life, Lisbeth is now being charged with a triple murder. She is going to have to rely on Mikael Blomkvist to help prove her innocence, and along the way reveal some disturbingly corrupt politicians that have tried to destroy her her whole life. When Stieg Larsson died, so to did the hope of any more Lisbeth Salander books. So disappointing. Published 2007.

“The Happiness Project” by Gretchen Rubin

The Happiness ProjectI’m not crazy about self-help type books, but when I do read them, I like them to be practical and laid out well. The Happiness Project is just such a book. And I like the premise of the book being not trying to change things, but to learn how to better enjoy the life we have.  It is a great checklist of things to try, so I recommend giving it a read. Published 2009.

Day 157 – Spoke Too Soon

Knock on woodI am a huge believer in fate. I’ve spoken about that a few times in my blogs.

I’m superstitious. I knock on wood. I never say the score in a game before its over.

I never say things like “my baby is sleeping through the night” because when you said that when they were young, they would immediately stop sleeping.

So I should know better than to proclaim a day “commitment free”. I should know not to brag about not having any meetings.

I should just plain no better.

But no, I had to brag about it in yesterday’s blog and guess what happened? The sky opened up!

Because not only had I bragged about my day, but I also was heard saying not so long ago, that I have been so lucky in my six years as PAC president to have not had any really contensious issues and I’m coming to the end of my term.

And bang, guess what happens. I’m now having to head up something really contensious and I really don’t want to be but I owe it so our students to do it.

URGH!

So that will be the last time you ever here me brag about a nice easy slow day!
