Sunset today at 15.28. So I actually had no photos from this week, not to mention I am suffering from a mystery allergy with horrid hives. But that did not stop me this week, itch a bit and then continue. But anyway, it snowed last nights so here are some pics at last.
Having lost her high-powered Wall Street job, her husband and her plush Park Avenue apartment in one afternoon, Ivy Ames emerges broken but unbowed. The newly-single mother-of-two picks herself up, dusts herself down and reinvents herself as a private school admissions adviser whose well-heeled clients will do (literally) anything to get their children into the A-list schools. Thus begins a fast-paced and very funny rom com as Ivy's bid to support her family and regain her self-esteem becomes a tale of modern-day reinvention - and unexpected romance.
I contemplated dnfing this one for the first 100 pages. I have no idea why I read on. Ivy was a pushover. Sure it's good to be nice but come on! Sometimes you have to stand up for yourself, not just roll around and show your belly. The things she put up with, arghh, it made me so annoyed with her.
But I read on as she tried to make a new career of helping parents getting into good private schools. That was amusing, the things they go through. Dang, that is a tough world. So yes that made it interesting to read.
Her tries at dating, not so much. That was messy.
Ivy as a person, pushover like I said, I did not like her.
But I finished it, it was an interesting look at things. Still, not really worth it.
