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.

This Time:
My goal was to get 800 pages read and I did that.
I did two of the challenges (late) and didn't visit anyone.
I forgot about the Twitter chats but did update when I met my goal.
I read four books, only one of which was a new read.

Next time:
VISIT people. I really like talking with other people when we're doing read-a-thons.
Read more new books and get a review in.
Up pages read to 1,000 pages
Challenges! They're fun, get involved! (on time next time!)

I sort of forgot to talk to people this time - I was a bit too into the reading so I missed out completely the interacting with people part! Haha, luckily there will be other times, so I can concentrate more on people next time :) Congrats finishing the event!

I had the same issues with not visiting anyone this time. But...I'm making up for it a little bit now. :) I missed one of the Twitter chats as well. That totally bummed me out. Congrats on making your goal!
