i'm right here

Where have I been???

I'm still here. It's just not worth beating all the other computer addicts who have been here off the computer to get my time in. So I've just stayed away. No bother.

I've been reading two books - A Million Little Pieces, and The Lovely Bones. So far they are both amazing. I get lost in both of them. The Lovely Bones has expanded my mind, and I am really enjoying it for that reason alone. I am a completely slow reader, so it will take me awhile to get through them, especially since I am reading two at a time. I NEVER do that. But I am now. Don't know why really.

The holidays were lovely (that's for you, V). Everyone was happy and cheerful, and we mostly enjoyed each other's company. It was better than I thought. I'm kinda sad it's over.

I'm looking ahead now, because WE'RE GOING HOME!!!
I am so excited and nervous and relieved and happy! Life can get back to normal. Or at least as normal as it's ever been, whatever that is.

Things aren't turning out the way that we thought, but when do they ever? We're choosing to be thankful regardless.

Hey there.
Like I said on SS, I am glad to hear you are going home.

Also, I just got Million Little Pieces from Costco to read sometime, but first I am reading Memoirs of a Geisha for the SS Book Club..
And I just heard of Lovely Bones.. I heard it is also good.

Glad to see you around SS more!!

We're glad too! I just need to start planning. Hopefully there's not too much to do.

I read Memoirs a long time ago and really enjoyed it. I don't know if I'll re-read it now, but I would like to see the movie.
