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.

Fall into Reading Wrap Up

Fall into Reading
Wrap Up

hosted by Katrina at Callapidder Days

Sign ups go live on the 22nd. You can read about the challenge here, or here, but "Essentially, Fall Into Reading 2012 is a fun, low-pressure reading challenge open to anyone and everyone. It will take place September 22nd-December 21st (which, as you may have guessed, lines up with the fall of 2012)." The only requirement is a list of book you'd like to read this fall.

I had a huge list to start with. I never have a problem reading for this but low-pressure or not, I needed some specific goals.

unlisted New Purchase: Get Organized! by Colette Leigh (Sep 26, 69 pages)
