Poor, Neglected Blog

I've been run ragged all this month. My daughter's now in HS, and the drama, money draining, and activities never seem to end. But I wouldn't trade her, or this time in our life, for anything. I'm a very lucky, very blessed mom.

Made it to the homecoming parade and got some awesome pics (Yay me!). Anyone who knows me knows my pictures - heads cut off, random pieces of strangers that always float in front of the lense when I snap the picture, etc. etc. etc. But these are Awesome! And, since someone was kind enough (thank you SHG!) to show me how to upload pics I'll be getting those up. If you don't see pics by tomorrow, it is safe to assume the computer has won and is reduced to a puddle of smoking techy goo.

And - wonders never cease - I have a window charm that survived! I want to post a pic of that one. It's one my mom made with my frog bead, and is really gorgeous.

I got my new book from Thomas Nelson books. I was going to devour it one bite, but then the library called and "Skin Trade" by Laurell K. Hamelton was in. So I devoured that one instead :). Love this whole series - vampires, werewolves, mysteries, head in box via UPS, yep. Something for everyone.

Skin Trade continues Anita Blakes sad, sexy, fun saga, but this time it's personal. After receiving an invitation via a bloody head, sans body, at her office, she heads to Vegas to hunt the serial killer that escaped in the previous book (may have been the book before last). The plot thickens as Max, Bibiana and children surface with their own agenda. Anita is working once again with Ed, a.k.a "Ted" and Olaf (they're scarier than the vamps most times!) to process clues and kick butt. I would absolutely love to see this series turned into a TV series. If you like Sookie Stackhouse, or Betsy the Vampire books, you'll love these.
