Our weekend was pretty full, but enjoyable nonetheless. I have a feeling we have a weekend of nothingness coming up as we recover from the past two, and gear up for last minute wedding planning over the next month. We were happy to see the Gamecocks beat Georgia on Saturday- what a close game! I'm getting into football much more than I ever would have expected. I still couldn't tell you the first thing about how the game is actually played, but I'm good at reacting when other people do, and appreciating when one of the players runs without being tackled. That pretty much sums it up, right?
On Sunday Carl and I had our first pre-marital counseling session, something we had been putting off for a while. I had this image in my mind of having to sit down and list the things I like about Carl and the reasons we thought marriage was a good idea. Instead it ended up being more of a time to express and plan out what we want for our ceremony, followed by a compatibility survey. We get the results in a few weeks, so I'll elaborate a little more once we're sure that we don't have to call off the wedding!
I finished this book over the weekend:
I wasn't wowed by it or anything, but it did hold my attention from start to finish, which counts for something. I think it read too much like a Jodi Picoult book, except it lacked the extensive research that Picoult does on all of her novel themes. I wasn't overly impressed by Unger's writing, nor was I surprised by the ending. That's not to say that I didn't get a little weepy during the cheesy parent-son bonding moments, but we all know it doesn't take much to get me choked up. Today I started Folly Beach (maybe not the best book to read as summer comes to an end), so I'm looking forward to sharing my thoughts on it, especially since I've never read anything by Dorothea Benton Frank.
