Checking In . . .

I realize I have been MIA lately. I am so sorry . . . things have been crazy. Please remember, just because I don't update, doesn't mean I don't think about each and every one of you each day, I promise!! Thank you to all of you who have sent me messages of concern, or simply, messages wondering why in the world I haven't updated.

Everything is going fine, just lots of crazy, busy times. I have lots to tell you, but unfortunately I have to run out the door again in literally 10 minutes . . . I just wanted to let you know that I had fully intended on taking the time to update last weekend . . . and then . . . well, here are my two very valid excuses as to why that did not happen . . .

Excuse #1: The Reason I Did Not Update On Friday . . .


Yes, I read the entire book Friday night! I know some of you out there are Picoult fans . . . this is her brand spanking new book, that I was so happy to find when I went in to get Nineteen Minutes, which had FINALLY come out in paperback. I didn't even care that this book was only in hardcover, it looked so good, and I was so excited!! This is definitely a must read for all Picoult fans . . . and even if you've never read her work before, you should really give it a shot.

Excuse #2: The Reason I Did Not Update On Saturday . . .

The brand spanking new Kinsella book!! She is another one of my favorite authors, so I was equally excited to see that she had a new book out too! I fell in love with Kinsella upon reading the Shopaholic series . . . I read the entire series, starting with the last book (don't ask me why) within a two week time span, and I'm pretty sure the only reason it took me so long to get through them was because I had child-rearing responsibilities to contend with!! Though this story is not as funny as the Shopaholic series, it is still a great story, written in true Kinsella fashion.

So, there you have it, my two valid excuses for not updating over the weekend. I still have Nineteen Minutes to read, but I think I need a reading break for awhile, unless of course I get whisked away to some resort spa to sit around the pool all day doing nothing but reading and soaking up the sun . . .but, that's highly unlikely.

I'll be back soon . . .

It is so great to finally hear from you again!!! Those are not really the greatest excuses but I guess we will have to let them pass. Better than hearing the woes of the moving in Utah:)
