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.

Library runs with the g-daughter will insure a lot of picture books!

This challenge is perfect! I work at my local library and I do children's programming, so I'm always on the lookout for new picture books! (Plus, I just love reading them!) I'm planning to aim for 100 - however, since I don't blog (anymore), I've linked my Goodreads shelf. Thanks for hosting! Jenn

This is a great idea. I work in a pre-school so I read a lot of Picture books. I'm really looking forward to this.
