Welcome!

This is my second attempt at “blogging” as the first was not that successful! I am hoping this attempt goes much better.
I am just now coming down from a very stressful (yet enjoyable) week so it’s time to take a deep breath, get things in order.. and then figure out my calendar. I can’t function without my Daytimer and it has not been updated in I don’t know how long.
I have a monthly book club meeting this Thursday. I love this group but with all the stress of the previous month, I have not been able to read the book, which is “What is the What” by Dave Eggers. Although it has gotten off to a very good start, and I know it will be a good read (you can tell that right away), I have yet to get to page 50! I am way behind. Anyway..so since today is Tuesday, I have a day and a half to read as much as I can. We shall see.
Also.. today is SUPER Tuesday which means I must hit the polls tonight. My recent residential move must have something to do with the fact that I never received my absentee ballot. I may have to vote provisional. Ugh.
Tonight, scout meeting.. and me, on the couch with my book.
Till tomorrow…
