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.

A Holiday in Every Month

Holiday Reading Challenge

A yearly challenge goes perpetual!

Every month has holidays, National this or that and authors/notable people birthdays. The idea is read a book related to that month's notable days. The blog is here, it's from 2007 and I tried it in 2010 but as long as the info is up. . . why not! I had already posted about the challenge (here), I just need to decide if I'm going to cut and paste or check out the blog for more. . . looks like a little bit of both.
