From the Inside Flap
The uninterrupted life is not worth living.
Got questions about Catholic family life? You've come to the right place! As a lifelong Catholic, devoted wife, diligent homeschooler, and mother of seven, Susie Lloyd knows lots of people who just might have the answers for you.
Susie herself is too busy to give advice: busy giving home haircuts and finding missing socks; busy teaching her teen girls to drive, cook, and diagram sentences; busy praying for divine protection while she races off to church (late) in her full-size van.
As she did in her beloved first book, Please Don't Drink the Holy Water, in these pages Susie Lloyd will charm and edify you with her offbeat but always pitch-perfect take on the joys and challenges of raising a Catholic family in today's world.
About the Author
Susie Lloyd writes for Faith & Family, The Latin Mass and other Catholic magazines. She lives in Pennsylvania with her husband and a gaggle of children.

Well...I'll give that a try. Here's what I didn't like:
I didn't like that I snorted my coffee as I tried to snuggle up with it one morning.
I didn't like that I couldn't get comfortable while I was reading it, because I was laughing.
I didn't like the looks my husband was shooting me across the living room as I laughed -- OUT LOUD, FOR REAL -- and interrupted his peaceful football viewing.
I don't like waiting for my friend to finish reading it so I can reread it.
I didn't like that it ended.
"None of us wanted to quit homeschooling, we just wanted somebody to do it for us."
"Call a professional driving instructor (this last step is performed in a darkened room, with your head in the Yellow Pages surrounded by aromatherapy and soft music." (after describing in hilarious detail teaching her daughter how to drive)
The final chapter is a poignant, sweet description of a mother's prayer -- the conversation with God interrupted at every minute by a child's voice, or a telephone at an unearthly hour of someone needing to speak to your husband "right away" -- while he's sleeping -- and you are doing three things at once -- but God is always there.
