Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

Mar 29 update: MIL is home but not doing well.

Apr 9 update: SIL is nurse and has taken time off work to care for MIL who is basically receiving hospice care at home.

I'll see you in May . . . April 23 update: My Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, died yesterday.

Happy Monday!

I have a job...sort of. I'll be picking up the cutest girl from school and taking her to daycare. OMG I'm going to have to get up and go somewhere every day!

I mentioned three books last week that I was hoping to get from Target....they had two of them :)

Hope everyone has plans for a great week.


Mailbox Monday is a place to share all the wonderful books that have come to live in your home– including paper books, e-books and audio books. Mailbox Monday was started by Marcia of The Printed Page. When Marcia was ready to move on from being the weekly host, she was kind enough to set up the Mailbox Monday Blog Tour. Check it out so you know where to go next month.

A big Thank You to Staci for hosting in August, the September host is Amused By Books (blog link, not post link).

Isn't it funny the way books jump in your cart at Target? I hope you love your new books!

Target is bad for book lovers. Or good depending on how you look at it! I hope you enjoy your new reads.

Mrs. Q: Book Addict said...

hahah I love it! It happens all the time, I want one book and end up getting many others. I hope you enjoy all your new reads,many are new to me.

Mary said...

LOL, Costco is a lot like Target - it's amazing how those books get in the cart by themselves :-)

I've never bought books at Target or Costco. Three-quarters of what I read this week was in the form of children's picture books. Please come see what they were.
