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

Wired into Sci-Fi Reading Challenge

Wired into Sci-Fi
Reading Challenge

hosted by Sci-Fi and Scary

There are three levels, I'm going for Dabbler and hope to read 10 books off the list. If I make it to 33% and still can't finish the book, it counts but only twice.

I'm really hoping I can re-read and have it count because Hitchhiker's is almost within reach of my laptop and I was going to re-read it anyways.
