Is It Spring Break Yet? (Updated)

No, it's not, but I wish it were!

I've just finished Conference Week at school and I'm wiped out. It's never coincided with the first week of Daylight Savings Time, and I think that made it especially draining for me. Anyway, I'm all done now and it's just two weeks until Spring Break, at which time I'll be heading up to San Francisco to visit my good friend Teresa, and meet up with wzgirl for dim sum, too. I can't wait! Hey, if you're in the Bay Area, and would like to join us for dim sum, email me. We're still working on the details, but it's going to be on April 1st. Might be in Alameda, or in Chinatown. We haven't figured it all out yet. Mary-Mia and Lisa, hope you can make it! :-)

This weekend I need to crank out the last two assignments for my final master's class. I'm on track for another 'A' and I would be delighted to finish the program with a 4.0 GPA. It's just thrilling to think that in a couple of days I will be finished and I will have more free time. In anticipation of my increased free time, I visited the public library yesterday afternoon and checked out three books :



I'm a sucker for historical fiction. Can't you tell?

    Hey sweet girl! I'm so happy for you that your conferences are over. We had ours last week and I can't imagine doing it in the first week of DST. You are such a trooper!
    Have fun in San Fran (Joel and I were thinking about heading there over Easter for a little break from the cold)and good luck with that 4.0!
    I got an A- in my course and although I know it is a good mark, I really wanted that A. ;)

    Alright Spring Break! Come on up, the weather's gorgeous.

    Conferences ~ Uhhhh! I feel for you there. Glad to read they are over for you.

    The book choices really look good. My mom was just telling me that she enjoyed The Last Wife of Henry VIII.

    Best of luck on the last of your papers. The light is at the end of the tunnel.

    I haven't read any of your choices, but they all sound interesting! Make sure to check out also Phillipa Gregory. Her historical fiction about Henry VIII is awesome!

    I live in Alameda! I've met Mary-Mia at the FCC BTNY party, and I'd love to meet you.

    I'm crossing my fingers that my I-171-H comes today in the mail.

    MOI AUSSI! I love historical fiction. When I was a teen I read every Victoria Holt book there is! :-)

    The second book intrigues me, because I love British history......

    Huge fan of historical fiction and I second the recommendation of Phillipa Gregory.
    So exciting that you're almost done with school! I can't believe our spring break was so early and is now almost over. At least time is flying in one area of my life!

    Have a great weekend!

    Hi Joannah,
    Congratulations on being almost done! We would love to see you. My spring break is the week AFTER Easter, but you could still come up during yours, or maybe we could meet 1/2 way. I won't be able to check my email until Monday, my computer has been broken, which is why you haven't heard from me sooner. I am so happy you will be able to relax soon!

    Oh man, I want to go! I won't be up that way until the seventh though, so it looks like I will miss it. Darn.

    I love historical fiction too! We should really talk, or maybe start a blog just about the great books out there..I have read many on this Amazon list, some real goodies. Try cutting and pasting this addy (I made it a tuny url for ease): http://tinyurl.com/2yy2tl


    Happy reading!
    Ps P. Gregory is great~~ don't forget Tracy Chevalier too.
    Girl with the Pearl Earring or Lady and the Unicorn...I could go on and on.
    Pls post how Empress was after you read it.

    I know when I was in school one of the things I missed the most was reading for pleasure!

    Enjoy the books and good luck on the grades!
