I'm on a hiatus...just too damn busy to even think about posting here. I haven't even had time to read much, which is my escape. But hopefully things are looking up. Between J and I both working overtime, a nice amount of ETY Disney bookings to take care of, the walk website, and walk stuff...I'm toasted. I took some time out yesterday and hit up a bellydance workshop and show, it was fun. And I'll be taking a vacation day on Tues, so J and I can chill out together with no kids during the day.

I miss y'all...and I miss writing.

Thoughts for a friend

A friend of the family is battling breast cancer. She's only 36 years old. Found the lump Feb 1st and had surgery a couple weeks ago. She has to do chemo, and possibly radiation. Any warm and fuzzy thoughts you could spare, please send them to Laura and her family.

I'm putting together a gift basket for her as she undertakes the chemo...any ideas. I've got a list already, but if someone has a great idea from experience, please let me know.

Tues March 9 Gratitude

I've got only one this week, well maybe two.

Biggest thing I'm grateful for this week is that the Pre-e walk website went live today! Lots of hard work went into getting this up and running, and while it was time consuming it was neat to be a part of the team for it.

And I'm thankful that I am heading out for a work conference Thurs & Fri in WI Dells. Can you say....relaxation?!

so-so book

I just finished Percy Jackson & The Lightening Thief. It's been on my list to read for a while as I would see while browsing at BN. I found a copy for $5 a while back and decided to pick it up and read it after seeing the movie was out. Wow. I was not overly impressed. It was okay, don't get me wrong. However it just did not have the same pull that Harry Potter did for me. And you can see similarities. I love stories about the Gods and Goddesses, but this book just doesn't seem to flesh out it's characters well enough for me. I will probably read the next one and give it another go, but I'm not holding my breath.

On a good note, I signed up for some free book giveaways on Goodreads and found an email today that indicated I will be receiving a free book! Hoopta!
