Project Playroom: A Success in Redesign

I do not watch HGTV. I do not possess hidden design talents. BUT… my mom does! So when I realized that my kids have outgrown the pale yellows and blues and the Winnie-the-Pooh design of their playroom, I turned to Mom for help.  She spent a week with us and helped me update the playroom. […]

Life gets busy…

So I just assumed that once summer got here, I’d finally have some free time to relax and read. Boy, was I ever wrong! I am busier now that when I was working and kids were in school.  But it’s all good. I get some time to read and write reviews here and there. I […]

Running on Empty?

I feel like I’m in a book reading slump. Do you ever feel that way? It seems like it’s taking me longer to read each book I select. I used to read a book in 2-3 days, it’s now taking 5-10 days!  Also, I find that I’m not enjoying reading like I once was. Usually, […]

Crush Groovin’

Long before the half-naked movie stars and book boyfriends of today, I had a crush. In fact, I had a lot of crushes, and thank GOD for Tiger Beat magazine for supplying me with the photos I needed to pin to my bedroom walls. There may have been a few men in my life earlier […]

Time Keeps on Slipping…

I have been struggling over what to write about for my blog. I had a steady stream of reviews to post, but now my reading has tapered off, and I’m in need of some blog material. Isn’t it ironic that I started a book blog and now the blogging eats away at my reading time, […]
