It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

Noah by Jacquelyn Frank
Seduced by the Wolf by Terry Spear
Devil's Food Cake Murder by Joanne Fluke


as for the rest,

Goal post? check
Twitter updates? some
Twitter chats? no
Two giveaways? check
Six Challenges? um, one late. one yes. four fail, hangs head in shame.
Check in with others? not enough



Watched a movie (Moneyball) and most of another (Die Hard 4). Checked off a couple of things on my To-Do list but not enough. Went out to dinner, "babysat" my MIL (hip replacement surgery), spent a morning at RenFaire!



Do it again? You bet! I'll want more specific goals, do more challenges, visit, visit, visit!
