I am a busy mom to two mini adult children. I am learning to do things that don't revolve around their schedules, and I am doing things for myself now. I am trying to bounce back after a difficult time, and it's slow going.
I have been slacking when it comes to writing here. I have been eyeballs deep in books for school. My last two required classes for graduation came with a ton of reading. I have learned that I can catch up on only one class at a time. Both instructors understand this, so I am passing. Midterms are this week, so that means that I am halfway through my final semester. I can’t believe it went that quickly, honestly.
We’re in October which means that we are in breast cancer awareness month. If you are behind, think about getting that mammogram scheduled, and actually go!
I hope to check back in soon. I am a little behind on my reviews, but those should be popping up soon.
National Today is a website that shows all the national days of observance and holidays. If you ever wonder what today is and the significance of what we are observing, there’s a link above to find it. There’s a list by month, year or day. It’s interesting to see where some of these days come from. Take a peek when you get a chance.
I was curious about Mrs. Winchester, since I had visited the house in San Jose on a couple of occasions. The stories seemed far-fetched, and after reading this, I understand why.
I didn’t get into this book until after the first third of it. The family tree was dull, and it took hours and many pages to get through. Once we got into the story of Mrs. Winchester herself, and the history of San Jose and Santa Clara, it got interesting.
