I posted the last post before my kids made my day so much better. Both were at work and hadn't given me anything so I thought that was pretty much they way it would be. And to be clear I don't really care about bought gifts it's the thoughtful ones that I appreciate more, so spending a ton of money isn't necessary or wanted just a kind acknowledgement. When I picked my son up he had bought a roast chicken for us to eat for supper so I didn't have to cook. When the daughter got home from work she gave me a card and a Tim's gift card. Later the daughter wanted to go get a McFlurry so I drove her and she bought me one too.
So even though some of my family were horrible my kids did save the day for me. It's nice to have your kids show they love and appreciate you in any way. I'm am so blessed to be a mom to two amazing young adults.
This year I am trying to read more. I used to read lots of books but not so much anymore. I have a ton of books I must get to reading just so I can get them out of my house as they are starting to take over my living room shelves. I just started this goal last month and so far have read four books.
I read "Gone Feral" by Novella Carpenter. It wasn't too bad but I've read one of her books already so I knew I'd like it. It's about her quest to connect with her father.

The third book was "The Witches of New York" by Ami McKay. It was set in the early 1900's (I think, don't quote me on that) and didn't have the strongest story line but I liked it. These tw…
With all that we had gone through at Christmas I took a break from the blog. Some posts are now private. Life is still a bit of a struggle but it doesn't stop you from getting on with it.
Lets start with the weather, it's been wonderful. Some days it's sunny and warm and others it's rainy and cool. Pretty unsettled just like a normal spring. Gardens are growing weeds like mad. We haven't attempted to plant much this year. We just don't have any money or energy for anything extra.
My computer is slowly dying, it's old and to be expected but frustrating none the less. If I stop posting again it's most likely because my computer died entirely and posting on one of the kid's laptops is too much of a pain. I hate trying to type on those laptops. I guess I could plug in my keyboard but then it's getting to be too much bother just to post a boring update and let you all know nothing is new.
I had a list of things I was going to blog about but…
