Zoo 2 the book was written as a Book Shots version. This is my first experience with Book Shots, but I think I liked it. At only 160 pages, Zoo 2 was written more like an episode of a television show. It doesn't have a ton of descriptive writing, but just enough that you can visualize what is happening and use your imagination to fill in the blanks. It ended with enough information that you didn't feel like it wasn't finished, but also left it wide open to make this a much longer series. I will likely continue the series if more are written in the future.
Confession: it actually took me more than a week to finish this short book, but not for lack of desire to read it. It has been really hectic in my world! Who knew twins could cause so much more work before they ever even make their appearance to this world?!? We've been remodeling to create room for the little angels by turning our bedroom into the nursery and moving our stuff to the man cave (sorry you have to lose your man cave, honey). Princess has been begging for about a year to repaint her bedroom as it hasn't been updated since she was 2. I thought it was a great idea to do both rooms at the same time. I thought this because I know nothing about remodeling and renovation... We took up the carpet to install tile flooring as these were the last two rooms with carpet remaining and I hate carpet. Both rooms required paint. Our bedroom was a dark chocolate brown so we had to paint on a couple layers of primer in order to paint the walls pale peach for the babies. This is MUCH more work than I had expected and our house is still a disaster, but we should be in better shape by the end of next weekend. I hope to be showing off some great after pictures in the next couple weeks. In the mean time, here are some progress pics. Roll your eyes at me, I really should have known this would be more work that I had originally thought...
