Been Busy...

Sorry folks I have been pretty busy in real life and then I found some new books to read.

My little sister was home from the Peace Corps for two weeks and then..
We had the 4th of July celebrations and then...
My mom had carpal tunnel surgery and then...
We had a family reunion that lasted two days and then...
My older sister had a gall bladder attack and then...
The county fair has been the past week and we have been taking Max and the sister's kids and...
Monday Max has his 15 month check up.

Oh and I read the first three books of Jim Bucther's Codex Alera series: The Furies of Calderon, Academ's Fury, andCursor's Fury. I have the next volume on order at Barnes and Nobel, I am really hoping that it will be in by Monday when Max has his doctor's appointment.

I really likes these books, I haven't read a whole lot of fantasy stuff (aside from the obvious), but these have been good. I wouldn't have thought that I would like something with such a large military/poltical component, but I can't quite get them out of my head.

Also I just watched Dr.Horrible or at least what is available so far. I love it!! Course I love Joss and Nathan Fillion as well.

I have pics of the wee man to get onto the PC from the camera and I will try to get those uploaded soon!

I was pleasantly suprised as well! I was impressed at how different they are from the Dresden Files, but just as good a read.

I am hoping that Captain's Fury will be in at the bookstore when I go tomorrow!

*giggles* I was just asking Dana in chat last night if she'd talked with you coz I haven't heard a peep from you in awhile....of course, this was before Skype started being evil and cutting off our call *shakes fist* Good to hear that you're alive and well dear....*huggles*

Sorry I missed your last call, but the whole "cell phone doesn't work while I am at home" thing really cramps my style. :(

I miss chatting, but honestly I am usually in bed EARLY these days.

Figured as much.....and the compound has to be pretty busy these days! Oh....I keep forgetting....I finally watched Shaun of the Dead (I think that's right)!

yessy...glad to hear from you. I guessed you had been very busy, but great that things are rocking along ; although the gall bladder attack does not sound to good....:(

darn Skype - I miss it and am hoping it will only be 3-4 weeks before we are back online at the new house.

*Waves and hugs*

Oh I hope to be able to make a chat at some point in the not too distant future.

Max just does not seem to be the kind of baby who sleeps through the night, so I usually don't stay up too much later than he does. (Unless, I can't put down the book I am reading, and then I hate myself in the morning!)

I can't wait to hear about your new house and all the settling in! Of course I am sure that you are much more anxious to be doing it all. Take care!

He will eventually let you get some rest LOL. Yep, I'll give everyone progress reports on the house as soon as we can get in there and get the container unpacked. We still have to buy a fridge and we wee pricing those on the weekend. I'll keep everyone up to date though
