A Moment to Breathe

Whew... that was a long haul. I still have two more articles to finish up by Friday, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I am not sure if I could have done this had my son been at home because of the time he needs the computer for school. So far I have finished 5 things off my weekly to do of 13. Not bad considering that I was out of commission visiting family on Monday.

It has been incredibly quiet without either one of the children home. Megsies is at the rink all week to help out with camp and the Dh and I are getting a glimpse of what our lives will be once they are gone. I wonder if I will get tired of quiet? Nah:)

There is an interesting discussion on one of my lists about books that you reread. I have always been a rereader. I love going back to old books and when I lose them for some reason, I mourn them like old friends. When I have a hankering to get into a book I sort of linger over my bookshelves, looking for what I feel like reading. Some books aren't rereaders... they might be great books, but didn't move me or touch me enough to make it a great rereader. The Lords of Discipline is one ... well, all Pat Conroy's books are rereaders. The Little House books, some romances... one called the Proud Breed is one of my favorites. What are your favorite rereaders?

A glimpse of life without children? I can't even imagine. :)

Nice blog.

And rereads? Gosh, would have to check my shelves. I know I have authors I'll read over and over again, but can't think of the individual titles to save my life. LOL.

I have more rereads than not. I've reread Gena's books, PC's books, the Harry Potter books, some historicals by Julie Garwood and Kathryn Smith and many of the LUNA titles.

And Karen Marie Moning's books are all rereads for me :)

Gone With the Wind, anything by William Faulkner or Lee Smith

And for fun, I read Harry Potter or something light (I cannot think of an example right now).

I remember when you were pushing Conroy on me ;) I have two of his books because of you!

Boy there is sure a bunch of sites. I just started doing some checking around for ideas on my new site and have been really overwhelmed with all of the variables. Color schemes, layout, etc. I might start a blog to and I like the layout of this one. Anyway, thanks for the ideas and if you feel like it you can look at my site too. chimney repair austin
