week 2 postB

Through the second section is about her best friend Inez not approving the guy Renee is talking to. Renee still feels bad about dumping her ex Robbie for another and better guy.She still has feelings for her ex but she knew she didn't want to spend her life with him.
Renee gets the courage to dump Robbie on the phone instead of in person. Robbie tells Renee that no matter what he will always be there for her,in times of need. Her new boyfriend Leon goes and meets Renee's mom and younger sister.Her mom approves of him because he was nice and fixed her moms bathroom her mom felt he was very thoughtful and helpful.They talk about marriage and how Renee's best friend Inez wants to be the maid of honor,but her boyfriend Leon can't stand her.They can't stand each other.She learns that Leon s much of a big spender,because he really doesn't want a big honeymoon trip.Renee's best friend is in the middle of her third divorce.Renee realizes that Leon is a little bit controlling/demanding and stands on what he wants. He thinks it's right for him to go to the club and drink with his boys, but she can't do the same with her girls.Wherever she goes like on a trip or something he wants to go and be with her.She wants a child of her own but she knows that he's in no hurry to have another child like he already has a 9yr. old girl. On purpose she gets off birth control to get pregnant since she wants a baby of her own.

week 2 postA

preoccupied-previously occupied;taken;filledpg.82
gasped-to draw in breath sharply,as from
I magery is used when Renee is pregnant and she puts an image in your head while reading the book of what it's like to be pregnant.
When Renee is questioned by her best friend as to if she was to cheat on her husband if the right man came aroundwould she do it, Renee lies and says no.Using irony as a cover up of if she would or not. She says she doesn't care for anybody else when really she's just covering up the truth,and turning it into a white lie.
A mtaphor is used when Renee says"I didn't think BMW's ever broke down." Being sarcastic in a way as she says this to her best friend Inez.
The theme from section two is when Renee is pregnant for the first time in her life.
Quote-"I had grandaddy backaches."pg.82 when Renee is further along and progressing in her pregnancy.

Renee's husband says to her "You got yourself in this mess. You get yourself out!"pg.9 This kind of has a connection with me because when I'm in a certain situation my mom or dad/guardian let's me know that if i did something i wasn't suppose to do and my punishment was good for me, then they'll keep it that way.Example:if a teacher punishes me for something I did wrong in class.It would be their o.k. for the teacher because at the time i was their responsibility.So its like if i got myself into this trouble then oh well cause it was all up to me or my fault.
The world can treat you like that to sometimes like when a homeless person begs for money from someone and that person turns them down, then that's like saying "you got yourself like this why should I help." And sometimes it could be really mean to say that especially when that person needs your help.
The Media could be like when they're showing different commercials that you know won't work or isn't true then mostly likely their sending you a message saying "I don't care you picked to have our product now deal with it. " It's like a slap to our faces that they don't care about us as human beings.In the book Renee(main character)feels bad that her husband doesn't care about her enough to bail her out of jail and the trouble she's gotten herself into.
