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.

So I'm going on vacation . . .

I'm leaving the family at home and heading to sister-in-law's house to play with their dog for a week. I guess you could say I'm house sitting or dog sitting but I consider it getting to play with their dog for the week.

I'm planning what I'm taking and while I have a list of stuff I usually take on vacation, the most important things this trip are my running shoes (walking the dog), my laptop/ereader, and a pile of books. So far I've got 10 print books. I seem to looking forward to reading Sabrina Jeffries ;-) Some of these are review books so look for a review post or two sometime this summer.

The Art of Sinning by Sabrina Jeffries (spotlight)
What the Duke Desires by Sabrina Jeffries (series)
When the Rogue Returns by Sabrina Jeffries
How the Scoundrel Seduces by Sabrina Jeffries
If the Viscount Falls by Sabrina Jeffries
99 Essential Weight Loss Blogposts by Kenneth Schwarz Ph.D. (LibraryThing)
A Potion to Die For by Heather Blake
Wishful Thinking by Kamy Wicoff (spotlight)
Enchanted Glass by Diana Wynne Jones (GoodReads)
Closer to Home by Mercedes Lackey

I'm not leaving until Sunday afternoon so I've still got time to change my mind or add to my stack. I'll let you know what my final count is.

edit:  I added three more print books to my stack:

Snow Way Out by Christine Husom
Twisted Threads by Lea Wait
Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library by Chris Grabenstein

 Finishing up an ebook I started before leaving home.
