3.5 disco balls

I returned to work last week- after a 3 month maternity leave – and this was the perfect book to escape in during my morning commute on the NJ Path train…which I did not miss!
On day 1 back to the grind I was pushed through the Path doors by 3 people and elbowed twice…there is obviously no such thing as personal space: it’s a push or be pushed world so a little humor is needed to keep one sane. Plus I was holding back all the tears, one wrong move…cue the waterworks.
I alternated between audiobook and hardcover, and enjoyed the book more when I read the hardcover; which is out of character for me as I typically prefer audiobooks narrated by the author. I think it’s because I got to interpret the delivery of her jokes rather than the author determining that for me. Who knows?
Chapters that I loved and needed:
1) The Miracle of Life – I am Beyonce’s bestie too. “Did you take folic acid?”…sigh, seriously people (insert eye roll here)
2) Why I Went Back to Work – already feel guilty at least 10 times per day so…go me
I will say I am a Sally Field Gidget & the Flying Nun type: there were a few too many “p” words for my comfort. #nerdalert 😉😬😳
Thank you for all the laughs, I needed them.
Thank you to Random House & Penguin Random House Audio for the free book/audiobook in exchange for my honest review
