Even With a Good Book

Published by at 4:44 am under a bit of everything

I had trouble falling asleep last night. I had a super busy day yesterday. First of all, it was my birthday. I received many nice surprises. My husband ordered me a beautiful cake. I took it to dinner with my girlfriends and we shared it. The restaurant we tried for the first time surprised me with a free steak dinner. The waitress treated me to a glass of wine.

I was anxious to get to bed but my brain wouldn’t shut down. I thought that reading my book would put me to sleep but I was in a part that was intense and that added to my brain whirling.

I just finished reading 600 hours of Edward by Craig Lancaster . I was afraid that the book would be more of a documentary about someone with Asperger’s syndrome but it wasn’t that at all. The book was a fun and eventful page turner. I downloaded the sequel, Edward Adrift. Edward is a real person with a life that many of us experience. His condition makes him deal with things in ways that I take for granted. He has learned, with years of therapy, how to calm himself down and focus on situations that used to send him into a rage or misguided and frightening anguish. It is a fascinating and endearing story of friendship. I will be sad when it ends.

I have to prepare for a workman’s comp insurance audit. Ugh. The auditor will be here in a few hours. I guess I better get going! Have a great day, everyone.

      Sounds like a good book. I have read a few books on Autism/Aspergers … will add to my TBR. Off today so I am getting some reading done – should clean the house – actually did do the kitchen….but just enjoying the day since I dont take many days off from work….have a great one!

      Happy Birthday! I’m sorry you didn’t get much sleep. It is hard to shut your brain off sometimes, I have that trouble too. Good luck with the audit!

      Thanks for stopping by my blog…I also downloaded Edward Adrift and plan to read it.working in a school I have come across quite a few children with autism (also have a special needs grandson with same) so I found the book very close to home. Just got hooked on Brenda Novak books and started reading one yesterday – more than half way through already. But will probably go back to the next Lancaster book after that.

      Happy Birthday (mine was Feb 19)
