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

Thoughts on...The Priest and the Peaches

I really wish I had something profound to say. I'm getting an "A" in Procrastination 101 and when I finally got into the book, real life interfered and I haven't finished. That said...

I don't usually read reviews of books I'm reviewing but I wanted to find out why I was having such a hard time with it. I finally decided it's a mix of several things. The attitude of men in the 60's, format, my mood, and new books all conspired together the help me with my "A".

Grrr, taking care of the house and children is not "women's work" and just because they are a woman, doesn't mean that they are the right woman. I'd really like to knock some sense into the father and the oldest child.

Don't even get me started on the nosy neighbor. She should be fired at the very minimum but I'd really like to string her up.

I'll be away from my computer for most of the day but plan on finishing the book and posting an update.

Don't forget to check out the other reviews, tour schedule
