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.

Happy Monday - Catch up post

Happy Labor Day!

I don't have too much to say here, I did a what-I-did-on-my-summer-vacation post last Saturday. :D

I really should have continued my Monday posts, just to make the lists smaller! I spent a lot of time this summer reading and shopping. I'm hoping to get back in the swing of a semi-regular schedule. I've added volleyball, run/walk club, gym workouts and a personal training session to my usual shopping, lunch and reading week.

Hope everyone has a great week planned!

Mailbox Monday is a place to share all the wonderful books that have come to live in your home; print, electronic and audio. Started by Marcia of The Printed Page, the mailbox is currently on tour. Check it out so you know where to go next month.

Thanks to July's host: Mrs. Q: Book Addict
