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.

High Summer Read-a-Thon!

High Summer Read-a-Thon
July 21 - July 27

Challenge runs from Midnight to 11:59 CST

Michelle at The True Book Addict brings us the High Summer read-a-thon. There is a dedicated blog for her RaTs and lots of information on the Guidelines tab but basically she wants us to spend a "week of relaxed reading during which we can personally challenge ourselves and whittle away those ever looming TBR piles/shelves/libraries."

I've got a couple of books to finish and review but other than that, I don't know what I'll be reading this week. I'll update here then do a wrap-up.

Hope you can join us!

sigh, that's okay, I had a wonderful time at the live children's theater production that my daughter was involved in.

See you next summer for the High Summer Read-a-Thon but check in to see what's up next.

Happy Reading
