Stir Crazy

This week has been LONG! I've been on house arrest and Gavin has been sick. So pretty much I've sat on the couch holding a toddler in one hand and occassionally a book in the other. I finished reading book 1 of "The Wheel of Time" and have started book 2 "The Great Hunt." I'm enjoying the story, but I'm about ready to pull all my hair out if I don't get out of the house soon!

This week has been extremely stressful (you can read more about it on my other blog), so I did a lot of escaping reality into literature.

I read "Fablehaven," book 1 in the series and thoroughly enjoyed it. Now I can't wait to read books 2-4!

Ever since I've known Leonard (or at least since we've been married) he's wanted me to read "The Wheel of Time" series. However, the author had poor health and I was scared he would pass away before the series ended. I didn't want to start the story and not be able to finish it. Well, unfortunately the author did pass away in 2007 with the 12th and final volume unfinished. He did leave detailed notes on how the story is supposed to end though, and a new author, Brandon Sanderson will now take over where Robert Jordan left off. The volume is set to come out this year so I decided to go ahead and start the series now. I'm only 1/4 of the way in to book 1 "The Eye of the World," but I am really enjoying it too. I love reading good books!

2008 Edition

This week I have been busy working on our 2008 Blurb book of my blog, "This is REIL fun." I'm half-way done, so hopefully I can finish it next week and get it published!
