Getting Over the Hump…

Getting Over the Hump…

Happy Wednesday! Everyone calls Wednesday HUMP DAY… which makes sense as it is the “hump” in the middle of the work week; implying everything is “downhill” for the rest of the week. The term also causes snickers among the romance crowd, implying a more adult meaning to the word. (Or maybe it’s just me and the […]

The Year Mark by Una

I know that I am supposed to be sending Twimom a review from Gikany and I regarding Devil’s Punch.  However, I have been in a rut.  Not the great one that is alluded to in shapeshifter novels, but the blue kind.  I realize that it has been almost a year since my mom passed.  I […]

G & U’s Top Five Reasons Reviews are Late

We thought we would come clean with all you wonderful blog followers of Twimom so you know when there is a late post or a day without a post….sadly, it’s most likely Gikany and Una’s fault (*Una’s head hangs in shame* mostly me…).   However, we humbly request you take a look at our top […]

Being Thankful…

I wish to all of my US readers a very Happy Thanksgiving, and to the rest of you – a peaceful, relaxing day! I am thankful for many things this holiday season.  First, I am thankful for my family, especially my two children. They fill my heart with such joy, and I am overwhelmed with […]

Life: From the Heart

I don’t like to take a lot of personal space on my blog – especially if it has nothing to do with books directly. But I am feeling really overwhelmed right now, and I feel like I’m letting everyone down – but most of all, I’m letting myself down. When reading my dear friend Marq’s […]

IAD Reading Challenge FAIL! Part Deux

Hey folks…. Yes, today is the day for my monthly Immortals After Dark book review and discussion.  Once again, I have not read the book. This is now the third month in a row that I have failed to keep up with my own challenge.  I am disappointed in myself and feel like I’ve let […]

Wanted – Murphy

Wanted – Murphy

What is it about Murphy’s Law? There is actually a website devoted to his “law” HERE. Gikany and I were over a week ahead of schedule when it came to the books Twimom had sent for us to review. Gikany is still on schedule. I’m behind. Sadly, I am the reason we were unable to […]

First Days

Yesterday was the first day of school here in my town.  My boy is in second grade, and this is “old hat” for the two of us. But it was also the first day of kindergarten for my baby girl. That was a big step for both of us.I don’t talk a lot about my […]

What I’m Doing on my Summer Vacation

Isn’t summer supposed to be about relaxing and having fun?  Sure, I’ve got down the “having fun” part, but relaxing?! I think I’m busier now than during the school year when I’m working 2-3 days per week! And reading — It’s not happening!! Take the book I’m reading now, The Lady of the Storm by Kathryne Kennedy. […]

Bittersweet Mother’s Day

Twimom is on vacation and she has insanely left me holding the fort, so to speak. At first I must say I was really nervous and hoping there were plenty of books we’ve reviewed so I wouldn’t have much work. I’ve had a lot on my plate (like most of us working moms)…my little bio […]

Christmas Time

I can’t believe it’s almost December 25! It is true… the older you get, the faster time seems to move.  Jobs, family time, holiday parties, sporting events, school activities… They all crowd up this busy time of year.  When I was younger, it seemed like Christmas vacation (it was still called that way back then) […]

Falling Behind

Falling Behind

BEHIND. I hate feeling like this. I don’t like it when I can’t maintain my carefully planned schedules. I hate when clutter infiltrates my life. I feel overwhelmed when I have so much on my to do list that I need a separate list just to keep track of what isn’t yet on my to […]

Lean in really close… I have a secret to share. *whispers* I’m going to cheat – just between you and me – this isn’t really […]
