You Are a Playwright

You are a highly literate wordsmith. You love both reading and writing.

You are also a natural storyteller. You can turn a mediocre anecdote into a riveting tale.

You find people and all aspects of life fascinating. No topic is off limits for you.

In modern times, you would make a good filmmaker or novelist.

Hear that?

It's the beautiful sound of a quiet house! The kids went back to school this morning after almost three weeks for winter break. We all had a lovely time while they were home from school but we all need some space.

They were all looking forward to getting back to school. S begins choir this semester and he is very excited. M and C also wanted to get back to their friends and see their teachers. A is glad to have the house--and toys--to herself all day long and I am, well, just glad to get back to our normal routine.

Back-to-school time for the kids is also back-to-school time for me. My semester begins next week. I have a heavy course load so that means late night studying (that's the only time it's quiet enough to focus without interruption) and loads of homework. We are leaving for FL next week, too, so all my textbooks are coming with me so I won't miss any work.

For now, I'll enjoy the quiet and rest my brain before life begins to get hectic again!

Ice Limit Ice Limit by Douglas Preston

My review

rating: 3 of 5 stars
Ice Limit was a unique story about a trip to the Ice Limit to retrieve a priceless meteorite and the unexpected trouble that follows. The story was slow to begin but once the action began the pace really picked up. The ending left me feeling a little unsatisfied and the writing was a little flat so I never felt fully invested in the characters but the drama was good enough for me to want to know how it ended.
