Easter’s On Its Way

Posted Mar 27 2013

On Monday evening, Tom and I had a long talk about Easter plans. This was going to be the first Easter with no kids…and frankly, we decided we weren’t too sad about that. He’s been working a ton. So have I. We’ve got a couple of projects that we’re working on in the house, so […]

A Review

Posted Mar 25 2013

I’m not sure what happened, but I woke up in the middle of the night Thursday with some kind of stomach bug. It hit me suddenly, lasted a couple of hours, then left me feeling tired and rotten all day Friday. It seems all my gloating about ‘never getting sick’ has come back to bite me. […]

Thank You Note Day

Posted Mar 21 2013

See you next week!

Posted Mar 12 2013

Although I’ll keep up with my daily page count, I decided to take most of the week off. My daughter’s in town for spring break, and I’m having a lot of fun spending time with my 20 year old. Yesterday we got pedicures, today we’re going out to lunch and shopping. In between all this […]

A New Book

Posted Mar 6 2013

I walked out of Barnes & Noble with a sack of books and magazines yesterday afternoon. It felt a little odd, almost like it was 2008 all over again! A couple of years ago I got a Kindle, and now that’s how I buy 99% of my books. I read a lot, usually three to […]
