it was ok

i wanted to like it ~ and actually i did like the first third of the book - then it went off on some weird tangents that i thought were silly and boring. nothing ever happens. and though i am a stay-at-home mom myself, i didn't really identify too much with any of the characters. i understood some of their struggles, but i couldn't get over how they dealt with things - the main character just stayed in denial - she was completely unaware of her surroundings - and then got all caught up in another mother's affair. that's what TV is for. and, give me a break, who doesn't have a clue as to how much debt they're in? check your friggin' bank account balance every now and then. okay - i'll stop. i just so wanted to give a shit about these characters, but ultimately, i just got through it.
