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

You did great! Congratulations on completing your goals, I wasn't quite so lucky, but I had fun :)

To get over 1,000 pages is awesome! That amount of pages is my goal every RAT but I don't always make it, although I did this time around. :) Looks like some great reads too!

Wow. You did great! Never heard of any of the books so perhaps I should check them out on goodreads. Love your blog name ;-)
