Suffering From Downton Abbey Withdrawals?

No one ever warns you about bringing up daughters. You think it’s going to be like Little Women. Instead they’re at each other’s throats from dawn till dusk. —Cora Crawley, Downton Abbey

Did you wake up with the Downton blues like I did this morning? Last night's series' finale was almost all I dreamed it would be. The only thing missing was a message at the end saying it's all been a terrible mistake, they really will be back next season. Now wouldn't that have been lovely? Sigh. Thankfully, Time Magazine has our backs with 10 Books to Counteract Your Downton Abbey Withdrawal. Books to the rescue once again.

Pretty sure there isn't a book that's going to help Tracy feel better today though. She's wearing black in honor of Peyton's announced retirement. We'll both admit we cried a little at his press conference. Classy, classy guy. They don't come any better.

We're off to drown our sorrows in some Coke and Coke Zero—meet you back here tomorrow for this month's book club selection.
