Readathon: The Update

I'm a wee bit too tired to go into an actual long running summary of it, so I'll save that for after I've actually slept, but I did manage to get through a majority of the books:

1) Unicorns of Balinor - Shadows Over Balinor
2) UofB - Night of the Shifter's Moon
3) UoB - The Secrets of the Scepter
4) UoB - Search for the Star
5) UoB - By Fire, by Moonlight
6) UoB - Valley of Fear
7) UoB - Sunchaser's Quest
8) UoB - The Road to Balinor
9) Graphic Novel - Myths and Legends, 3
10) Graphic Novel - Myths and Legends, 4
11) Graphic Novel - Myths and Legends, 5
12) The Last Herald-Mage - Magic's Pawn (Halfway completed)
13) TLHM - Magic's Promise
14) TLHM - Magic's Price

Had I not taken as many breaks as I did, I likely would have finished Pawn and probably even Promise - but it is what it is.

Readathon Reading List

I'm insane.  Absolutely out of my blasted mind.  I'm going to be waking up at 7 AM on Saturday and keeping my peepers open until 7 AM Sunday, reading.  I may shove some food in my mouth and allow myself to read on the porcelain throne (I never let my books near there!), but I am going to read for 24 hours.  Holy crap.

Anyway.  For my reference and your reading pleasure, my intended reading list for this Saturday:

My saturday morning.  And afternoon,.
And evening. And did I mention Sunday morning?

2) UofB - Night of the Shifter's Moon
3) UoB - The Secrets of the Scepter
4) UoB - Search for the Star
5) UoB - By Fire, by Moonlight
6) UoB - Valley of Fear
7) UoB - Sunchaser's Quest
8) UoB - The Road to Balinor
9) Graphic Novel - Myths and Legends, 3
10) Graphic Novel - Myths and Legends, 4
11) Graphic Novel - Myths and Legends, 5

All Mothers Are Hard Working

I recently saw that a lot of drama started last month due to this article on Saying Your Dog is your baby is an insult to moms everywhere.  Rare is the time that someone spewing mass amounts of self righteous bullshit actually pisses me off.  This is one of those times.

Today My Life Changed

Though technically, it changed a few weeks ago.  Today was just the solidifying change.

Foodagality: Tuna and Corn Jacket Potatoes

So, today I was too lazy to go digging through the freezers and pantry to figure out what to make for dinner.  Big surprise there, right?  Me, lazy?  Never.

The Rage Is Strong In This One

So, a precursor to this particular rant: I am a member of a group that serves a dual purpose.  One, to roast other members/people, and two, call out people that actually do something wrong or unsavory in other related groups.

Post-Graduation Party and Pre-Job

This summer has been a roller coaster of emotions.  It started out with an almost depression, mourning the loss of my graduation walk, mourning the loss of a beloved pet not too long after.

The high of planning my graduation party, of my family coming up.  The highs and lows of having my little sister up here for a week, of taking her out with Ron, not knowing how to take care of a six-year-old.

The party was, for all intents and purposes, a success.  I'm still working out thank you cards for everyone that showed up and everyone that sent a gift.  It's a lot harder writing them then I thought they would be, but they'll get done soon, I'm sure.

Far too soon, little girl.
We miss her so much.
Then we lost Kethry, unexpectedly.  That, at risk of understating it, took a lot of the edge off my enthusiasm for the new computer my wonderful Ron had built for me as a gift, for the good things that had happened, while also tempering my ill feelings about everything that had gone bad.  And now, Rose is alone - and I'm worried.  Worried she is unhappy, unwell, and wonder what is to come, with her being a good year and a half old by now.  I'm scared for her, and fear that the day she joins her sisters is coming far too soon for me.

I'm worried about my family, the health of my grandparents and my sister.  Worried about my current loss of insurance, until I get more information in the mail.

But even amongst the worry and doubt, good things are happening.  Ron and I attended the Bristol Renn Faire.  We're going to Gencon in less then four days.  I'm starting a job in a week, something I've been fighting and crying for since this time last year.  Everything is starting to move forward - and I have to prepare for it, whatever may come.
