I realize that it has been quite awhile since I have shared any personal information about the going on's in my life recently so that's what I wanted to do today. My Grandma has been home from the nursing home for a few weeks now and things seem to be going well. I have noticed that her eyesight seems worse than it did before her heart attack so we have an appointment scheduled next month for an exam. I'm just hoping that eyeglasses will take care of that.
I can't believe the school year is over! It seems like just yesterday that I dropped my daughter off at college for her freshman year, and now today we will be leaving to pick her up. My son also completed his first year of law school and survived! So congratulations to both Ryan and Vicki for their accomplishments this year!
A couple of summers ago I read the book Wicked by Gregory Maguire and enjoyed it so much I thought I would like to see the musical. Earlier this week I received an email about early bird tickets for this musical so I snatched a couple up for my daughter and myself. We are both excited to go to this show in August!
I couple of days ago I FINALLY finished reading Black Hills by Dan Simmons and boy, did that book kick my butt! I'm hoping it doesn't take as long for me to write my review as it did to read it. Although it was a very good and informative book, I just found that I wasn't looking forward to opening it every night.
I'm hoping to have more time for reading in the evenings since a couple of my shows have wrapped up for the season. I really enjoyed Survivor this year and I don't think I'm the only one that is grateful that Russell did not win...what a creep! Desperate Housewives left us with a little mystery as to the children that were switched at birth, and then Mary Alice's husband Paul returns...to live in Susan's house of all places! And then Brothers and Sisters. Sigh. That season finale was just so sad and I am going to really miss Rob Lowe in the next season. I must say that I am really getting tired of the whole Justin and Rebecca scenario, so we will see what happens with those two. But now that those shows are over I can finally start getting caught up on Army Wives! I've been recording the whole season on my DVR and have only watched the first episode so far.
Well I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! Don't forget to enter my contest for The Secret Speech by Tom Rob Smith that ends tomorrow. I will be hoping to draw winners for that one Sunday afternoon.
