Moving On

This week was a big week here. I moved my mom back home and got her all settled in yesterday. We are hoping she will do well on her own. If not, we will gladly take her back in here. For those who don't know, my mother was diagnosed with congestive heart failure but is doing very well. She was given a strict diet, lost weight, and we got her moving. She looks good and says she feels good too.

I have been reading Lily of the Nile by Stephanie Dray for a week now. Last night I had to put it down. It just wasn't speaking to me right now. I can't explain why. It was just easy for me to put down even though I was enjoying the story. It is a library book that is two days overdue so I decided to move on for now. I can always check it out again another day and finish it. It's not a bad book. It just wasn't the right time for me to read it, I guess.

Last night I picked up my Nook and decided to start reading The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Holy cow, this book drew me right in! I can see why this book has been talked about so much. If I hadn't had such a busy week, I would have stayed up all night to finish this.

Have you read either of these books? If so what was your experience with them?
I am off to eat my breakfast. My son was kind enough to make me breakfast this morning for my birthday, which was yesterday. Yesterday was kind of a crazy day so celebrating today works out better. I am once again 29! Have a great weekend!


  1. Beth, Happy Belated Birthday to you! And I hope that things go well with your Mom. Sometimes, it's tough to decide what is best, but it sounds like you guys have things well in hand.

    I loved THE HUNGER GAMES and hope you will enjoy the whole trilogy. It's definitely a gripping read! LOL

  2. Ditto on all Kay said! And..Glad you are getting the Hunger Ganes read before the movie comes out, makes all the Hollywood talk about casting and such so much mroe interesting.

  3. I'm glad to see your mom is doing so well. It's so difficult to watch your parents aged. I think I'm going to be the last person in the world to read The Hunger Games.

  4. I'm glad to hear that your Mom is doing well. I hope she continues to do so!

  5. Hope your mom continues to do well. Have a nice Sunday Beth!

  6. The Hunger Games blew me away! I'm glad you're enjoying it!

  7. I hope your mother does well on her own. And I hope you enjoy The Hunger Games. It was a "fun" series to get lost in for awhile!
