Almost Done

Well, Lindy's room is just about done! Steve is putting her furniture together as we speak and tomorrow I will do a few last minute things before she gets home.

I pretty much painted all day today and I am so tired! We had dinner tonight with Steve's whole family at La Unica. Now I am about to get in my pajamas and do some reading and TV watching!! Our new book for my book club is The Kite Runner.

And when we were in Washington last week, we turned on the tv in the hotel Thursday night when we got back from our day and a show called Hopkins was on.

This is the summary of the show from abc:

Nearly eight years after the critically acclaimed series, Hopkins 24/7, ABC News returns to Baltimore's Johns Hopkins Hospital for a new six-part documentary entitled Hopkins, which delves even deeper into the world of caregivers at this hospital. Hopkins offers a rare look at the impact this high pressure profession can have on doctors' personal lives. For four months ABC News' high definition cameras had unparalleled access to this legendary hospital and to more than a hundred caregivers and patients who gave their consent to be filmed. Hopkins captures astounding scenes of medical crisis, with young doctors forced to make life and death decisions on the fly. The result is a stunningly intimate portrait of the men and women who call this hospital home.

I really liked it, so I'm looking forward to seeing it again tonight! Hope you have a great night!


  1. Betsy, First of all who doesn't love a little "Sweet Caroline"!! This song just made me smile and of course turned my mind to our own blogger-girl Caroline in Japan right now ~~ great reminder to pray hard for this keeper of the faith!!

    Can't wait to see pics of that room!! And to hear your reviews of the book ~~ oh how I love a good book!!

    I haven't even heard about this show, I need to check it out. Dakota wants to be a doc someday!!

    Have a GREAT day,

  2. You are one of a handful of people who have told me how great that show is! I need to start watching it.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  3. I can't wait to see how the finished product turned out ;)! If I know you, I know it will be pure perfection!!!!

    That show sounds like it would be REALLY good ;)!

  4. Hey girl! I can't wait to see before and after pictures of all your hard work!

    I have the Kite Runner, but I haven't read it yet - I have heard it is really good! I am actully going to the beach with my mom's book group next week! Fun!

    And, last, but not least, I have been watching Hopkins - very interesting and sort of fills the Gray's Anatomy and ER gap for me during the summer! Haha!

  5. I'll add the Kite Runner to my reading list. I'm always looking for good books!

    LOVE Hopkins. I missed the first week, but caught it last week. Have a great weekend!

  6. I love love love your new hair! You are gorgeous, just gorgeous!!! I wrote down the product names and I'm going to go search for them. You described my hair to the T. I'm hoping they work for me!!

    Tell me how you like your new book choice!!

  7. Not sure why my last comment didn't post so I will try again.

    I wanted to say that I just got through reading, well uh listening to the Kite Runner. I really liked it and found it a powerful story. It had a great deal of Farsi in it, so I'm not sure I would have understood it as well reading it. Listening to the author's read version helped me I think. If you are interested they have the audio version at the library. I need to rent the movie now and see how far away it was from the book. He wrote another book A thousand splendid suns (I think) that others have said is good as well, but haven't tried it yet.

    I'm enjoying your blog!
