Still around!

Hello friends!

Yes, I'm still alive and kicking, but don't have much spare time to even read right now, much less blog.  I really miss y'all, and hope everyone is doing well.  It's been crazy hectic around here for the last few months.  Hubby has been having to travel for work quite a bit lately, so that leaves me all on my lonesome to take care of things here at home.  It's really been cutting into my precious reading time.  :(  He just this evening got back from a 3-day trip to New York, where it was 16-17 degrees, and snowed most of the time he was there.  I was totally bummed to not have been allowed to tag along (as it was a business trip) -- I would have loved to try and meet up with Renee and a few other friends up that way.  Maybe one day!  *fingers crossed*

Well, it's almost Christmas -- again!  I simply can not believe how quickly 2010 has flown by -- it just blows my mind!  It seems like just last week I was starting my part-time job, which I still love, btw, and planning our summer vacation with my family.

Another reason I haven't been posting any reviews lately is that I was getting really burned out on Christian Fiction romances, and decided to take a much needed break.  I've been mixing it up by reading some secular romances, plus, I've finally decided to test out the very popular "vampire" craze.  Nothing deep and dark for me though, just some lite, comedic, chick lit -- thank you very much!  ;)

Of course, I've read a few Christmas-themed romances already, but not nearly as many as I'd planned on reading.  Maybe I can get to more of those come January.  I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas, as well as, a Happy New Year.  I'm telling y'all now, jic I don't get a chance to post again before the end of the year!

*yawn*  My eyes are starting to cross, and I can hardly keep them open -- I guess that means it's time to head to bed.  I hope y'all have a wonderful weekend.

*Hugs & Kisses*

This was such a cute post! I'm sorry that you are lonely but at least you had Deezel to help watch out for you right?

I totally understand where you're coming from when you say you are getting burned out on CF romances. If I stick with one genre too long I feel the same way.

I hope you are having a good time planning the holiday.

I could sure go for warmer temps! As your hubby said it's pretty darn cold up here. Hopefully you'll get to visit our neck of the woods soon. :-)

Glad you're doing okay and hope things continue to go well. I totally understand about being busy. I hope you have a fabulous Christmas! :o)

Hey Renee! :)

I did have Deezel, but he stays outside. At least he barks when someone pulls in the driveway. LOL

It was COLD and WINDY here today -- we even had some snow flurries! *gasp* Nothing that would stick though. :(

Hey Lee~ *waving*

How ya been? Good, I hope! All moved in?

You have a wonderful Christmas, too -- should be lots of fun in your new home. :)

I'm pretty much in the same boat with not finding the time to blog. I read...but can't blog all the time.

It's smart to mix up the genres from time to time too.

Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!

Hey Cee Cee!

Maybe we can catch up after the holidays, huh? ;)

I hope you have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, too.

Better late than never getting over here to say "hi!!" I'm sorry that your free time has been zapped up lately, and for the burnout. I had the same thing happen to me a couple of weeks ago with Amish fiction b/c I haven't read anything else lately (judging for the Inspys). I've had to mix it up the past few days with some suspense...nothing like a good mystery to be the complete opposite of Amish fiction! :o)

Thank you SOOO much for the Christmas card you sent to me!! I appreciate it so much, and you're such a sweetheart for thinking of me. :o) I hope you and your family have a wonderful (hopefully, somewhat warm) Merry Christmas!
