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

2016 Challenges

I've given up most of the challenges I was hosting but if no one takes them up, I'll do them another year. They've ALL found new homes! Other than that, nothing has changed in regards to joining challenges. I'm still not going to pretend to be realistic in what challenges I sign up. Maybe someone who missed the originating post will see mine and they'll be tempted to join up too :-) I'm still shaking my head over the fact that it's already November and I'm just getting around to posting this. Now to find challenges for 2016!

Hi. I did the library and picture book challenges this year. I wasn't planning on doing the library one again. I'm always checking books out, so the library challenge is basically redundant for me :-) If someone else takes over the picture book one, though, I will be in again.

And I'm taking the plunge and hosting a challenge for the first time net year. Please take a look and let me know if you are interested:
