what I would get if I could have anything

When I was a kid, what I wanted was lots of money to spend on frivolous things.  (that’s a kind of universal thing, right?)

When I got older, we had plenty of money and what I really wanted more of was time.  (yeah, you can trade money for time to some extent, but it’s generally messy and it’s not like we were millionaires or anything)

Now that I have kids, time would be nice, but what I really want is more energy.  I feel like I can’t fully enjoy the time I have with the kids because I’m too exhausted!  Hoping things will get better as the kids get older…

Red Mars review

Red Mars (Mars Trilogy, #1)Red Mars by Kim Stanley Robinson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

If you like world-building scifi, you will probably like this book. I usually like world-building scifi, but the book is so long, and I was so sleep-deprived that I didn’t super get into it.

But the characters are interesting, and the plot is kinda bland and straightforward until it wasn’t, so I think it’s a good book!
