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.

Well, I'm plugged back in but . . .

I think there is a bad connection somewhere. It''s still so hot here that I don't believe much will be posted. I'll start with a looooog Happy Monday post next week and go from there. You know, just because I'm not reading doesn't mean I'm not buying! Let's see how the summer stacked up to the plans.

Not near (I typed sear!) enough time spent by the pool but it was too hot for me!

Oh, yeah! We've been every WEEK since we got passes. Once was just for lunch after a race.

Running shoes:
Not anywhere near enough time but I did do 3 5ks. One was pirate themed.

TWO bathroom remodels:
One is done. New towels, a shelf unit and everything. Looks really nice. The other is mostly done. There is still a part to the sink that needs to be fixed (sink stopper) but we've got new towels and stuff in here too. This is the hall bath for three bedrooms but only one person uses it and he keeps it clean.

Background stuff:
Nope. It was a blah summer and none of this got done. Well, one thing got crossed off my to-do list. I'm now

I spent most of my time reading an online (and free) serial that isn't finished yet! grrr. My book reading did pick up this last week (now that the serial isn't updating) but I'm hoping to get more pages in during September than I did this summer.

Nope. It's like I totally forgot about my blog and my friends. I forgot about two read-a-thons too. I hope the rest of the year goes better for me.

Happy reading, I hope you had a great summer,
