A Brief Escape

We're off to Puerto Rico! My husband has a three day conference and my parents are staying with the twins, so the two of us are taking our first child-less trip (not counting a few overnight getaways) since 2002! It's been quite some time since my parents have dealt with teenagers, but they were very good at it then and feel up to the challenge now.

I will be taking along a few books:
The Wapshot Chronicle by John Cheever (I'm loving this book)
The Shack by William Paul Young (for my April book club meeting)
Heir to the Glimmering World by Cynthia Ozick (it looks really good and a girl needs options!)

I hesitated at just three titles, but then remembered my copy of The Wapshot Chronicle actually contains all the novels of John Cheever. That should be enough to last until Wednesday. Now it's time to think about what clothes to pack...

  11. Molly,
    Thank you so much!! You've made the return to reality a little less painful. It's going to take me a few days to get caught up with everything here and see what's been going on in the blogosphere...will get a post out by this weekend.
