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.

5 a.m. - already asleep.

It's 8:30 p.m. here - I've sleep well, gone out to dinner for my birthday (today!), went to the gym - dang 1/2 mile shy of a 5k (the gym closed)

All my letters are read, reviewed, and scheduled. So I get to pick other stuff to read. I've got 6 - 8 hours of reading time ahead of me, let's see how much I get done!

~ Books Started ~
√ Scales and a Tail by Stormy Glenn

Now I remember why I so October. I usually get a couple hours in before heading to bed but this time I woke up and was already 9 hours behind. On top of that was dinner out for my birthday, a trip to the gym, and reading a wonderful gift from my husband (The story of how I knew whom I was supposed to marry). I'm just happy I was able to get the two safety books reviewed.

I've never done so little reading for a Read-a-Thon but I'm still going to consider this a success. Not a knock-out by any means but still a success. See you in October!
