2 years???

No, it's not been QUITE two years since my last post.

It has been two years since my first post, though!

I still read blogs that I follow in google reader daily. I think about blogging myself. And just haven't done it. I miss it. I want to do it again.

I hope to be back sooner rather than later.

Words that stuck with me

"I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best." Marilyn Monroe

My word for 2010



I need it. I don't have it. I lose it almost daily. I'm going to work on keeping it. Deep breaths.


Ahhhh, better already.

It's my birthday today and it's about time I've learned to be patient.

Words that stuck with me......

Pleas'd look forward,
pleas'd to look behind,
And count each birthday
with a grateful mind.

Words that stuck with me.....

I saw this on another blog and saved it ~ it moved me so! I wish I could give credit, but I don't remember quite where it came from as I was blog surfing.

Best Reads of 2009

Though I read a lot, I do have dry spells. 2009 seemed to have more dry reading spells than I can remember having in years. My books read list this year is the shortest since I started keeping track.

My top 10 list is in no particular order, because to choose a order would prove too difficult (or I'm just too lazy). hese are books that when I look over the list at the end of the year, their titles jump back out at me.

The reasons for making an impact on me greatly vary. It COULD have been a masterfully written story, or maybe it just was just the fluff I needed at that time.

As I look over this list it seems that this year was the year of Young Adult novels for me. I guess my older two kids' recommendations are pretty good :)

Another thing I feel I must point out is some of the titles I just chose the first title I read, when I really enjoyed several from the same author, like Jen Lancaster and Suzanne Collins and Sandra Dallas.

1. Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Ahser
2. The Book of Bright Ideas by Sandra King
3. Boy in Stripped Pajamas by John Boyne
4. Year of Pleasures by Elizabeth Berg
5. Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
6. Bitter is the New Black by Jen Lancaster
7. Prayers for Sale by Sandra Dallas
8. The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown
9. The Help by Kathryn Stockatt
10. Sugar Queen by Sarah Anderson Allen
