Blog Catch Up

I've been a very bad blogger lately. I'm sorry. I know you all must have been missing me like crazy. And if you haven't then at least humor me! lol. Ok, so let's play catch up now.

As you may have noticed from my last Seriously Thursday post, I've been extremely stressed out lately. I think it's giving me a case of writers block. I just haven't been able to come up with anything interesting to talk about lately. And it's not just on here either. I haven't talked to my BFF in like 2 days. Any of you who are familiar with me know that that just doesn't happen!

Saturday my brother-in-law and his 2 kids came over to visit and play. That was a really nice day. He's been really stressed out lately since he's not use to caring for a 9 month old and a 2 year old all by himself so he desperately needed a break. And I just adore playing with my little niece and nephew.And I gotta give him props, he's doing a wonderful job with his babies! Any singe ladies in the Ohio area, he's a great catch!

Speaking of babies, my oldest will be 8 years old on the 9th of this month. OMG how can she be that old already?! Where did the time go. Wasn't she just a toddler not that long ago? All of my kids are just growing too damn fast.

Is anybody reading any good books right now? That's another thing that has had me side tracked this past week or so. I'm re-reading Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. It's an 8 book series. I've only ever read the first 3, but I've read each of them at least twice since I was 18. This is my third time reading Outlander. I can't wait to get my hands on the rest of them in the series.

I don't even know how to explain the book exactly. It starts in the 1940s in the Scottish Highlands where the main character, Claire, is having a second honeymoon with her husband Frank. Somehow though she gets transported back in time to 1943 where she finds herself married to a Scottish clansman named Jamie. There's lots of passion, and intrigue to keep you captivated late into the night. I should know, I haven't been going to sleep until around 2am cause I don't want to put the book down!

Well, I guess I've updated you all enough on my fasinating life. Time to get back to my book. Happy Monday everybody!

  1. Well, you know I missed you. And I've never been able to re-read a book. Maybe some parts of one from time to time, but not the same book. Hey, I just got a really good e-book if you want me to send it to you.

    And don't feel bad about not blogging a lot lately. I'm seeing a lot of that around lately...myself included. I shouldn't have stopped my Monday hop, cause I got "nuttin" to say today myself and can't find any hop that I'd like to participate in. I may have to break down and just do a "random" blog...cause I'm bored and it's raining cats and dogs down here today.

  2. I have read Outlander. This is your THIRD TIME? That is amazing! I never read books twice. You could have finished all 8 books by now! Do they get less interesting with each book?

  3. Oops, typo, that should say 1743 not 1943. lol my bad.

    Cinnamon, aww at least somebody missed me! :) I can re-read a book if it's really good and it's been awhile since I read it. I haven't tried e-books yet but I've been wanting too. Yes, please send it to me. I think we're all having writers block. Your Monday Me hop always helped me with that, hint,

    Kelley, I only read the first 3 books cause I didn't know about the rest of them. I just found out about them last week. I think they stay pretty interesting too. They are awesome books.
