Raising My Three And Me

The unfiltered thoughts and happenings of a married SAHM


Progress Is Progress, No Matter How Small | Readathon Update

I have been home for an hour now after having a bit of reading at the beach – not as much as I had hoped but I still had a great time.

One of my favorite places to read is in fresh air. I don’t get that at our apartment. I dream of the days I can go to the lake and just read without the worry of my kids.

I got to around Day 50 while at the beach and it’s been an experience. It’s definitely been making me think about how far I have come in my relationships. How much I have matured as a partner than I was in the past.

Molly definitely has a lot of flaws with decision making. I find that her impulsiveness is adamant based around her ideas of what she’s supposed to do and who she will choose.

Feelings can be complicated and messy.

Spoiler Section

Now that I’m home and been trying to power through this book in the next few hours.  I’m on day 58 and…well… My opinions did change quite a bit. That’s why I have loved making these updates.

Molly has learned that Gabe has always had feelings for her – something she was oblivious to. She learned that Patrick always assumed she would choose his brother over him.

Patrick eventually breaks up with his girlfriend from this book, Tess. Tess and Molly developed a friendship with Molly’s old best friend, Imogen so she is shocked to discover Patrick dumped Tess after a conversation Molly had with him while on a… Secret run.

Anyways, as someone would feel, Molly was confused. This is where feelings are complicated. I have been there. Molly seems to love both boys and why wouldn’t she? She has two boys she has grown up with. She has Patrick who was that comfortable I’m still learning the relationship ropes. Patrick and her have that adorable relationship – as long as he is secure in their relationship. With Gabe, she has mature love. She feels like she can be herself. He handles her emotions like an adult. I just like their relationship better.

Anyway, after Molly learns that Patrick is single (while Gabe is in Boston to have an interview of course) she receives a text from Patrick asking if she can come over.

Clearly, Molly didn’t learn because they started kissing.

I don’t know. It’s going to be interesting what happens next…

Mid Survey

  • What are you reading right now?

I’m still reading 99 Days by Katie Cotugno.

  • How many books have you read so far?

I have not finished reading any books so Im still reading my first!

  • What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the readathon?

There is no way I will get deep in my TBR. Maybe I will get around to opening up another book and reading all of those hours I happened to sleep… But I have no idea yet.

  • Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?

I have. Im a mother to three children and I’ve been trying to spend some time with them and their father, my husband, since it’s his day off. As for dealing, I just try to be gentle on myself.

  • What surprises you most about the readathon, so far?

Honestly, the biggest is that I didn’t realize how long it would take me to finish reading. Im honestly shocked.

That’s it for now! I will make 1-2 more updates during this readathon. 😄
