Cancer SUX !!!

Posted by Hope at 7:39 AM 0 comments
Friday night my aunt passed away !  :(  We all knew it was coming as she was very ill.  It hit me alot harder than I imagined it would.  She was such an inspiration to everyone.  She had had Breast cancer, a brain tumor. 
This weekend is her "Life Celebration".  Please keep my family in your prayers as we struggle thru this difficult time.

I want to apologize to all my readers (hahaha .. all 2 of you !)  I have been a bit MIA lately.  I got a job !!!  Yes, you heard that right .. I GOT A JOB !!!  It is great, it is only 15 minutes from my house, in a small office (only 4 people), and I am learning alot of new things !!!
Having started this new job, I am trying to get back into the swing of doing a few things ... blogging .. running... reading... you know, those things you take for granted really. 

I have alot of things I want to blog about, so bare with me... the next couple of days I will be posting some back dated posts.

Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen

This book was recommended by one of the ladies at the library.  I have to say I was very skeptical since it is not the type of book I normally read.  I started reading it and got to a page somewhere in the100's and had to stop and read another book.  It was just not keeping my interest.  However, I did not give up, this weekend I decided I would finish the book!!  I got a bit farther and the story really started to come alive and the book was enjoyable.  There was a little mystery in it which I liked since most books I read are Mystery.  I understand now having finished the book that the beginning, as boring to me as it was, was needed for character development.  This is a book I love to see made into a movie... it's one of those kinds of books.
