I'm Back!

I cannot believe it has been a year since I have posted. I did not mean to take a long break. Life sometimes happens.

Last fall my mom was diagnosed with another type of cancer unrelated to her lymphoma. This time radiation was to be the treatment. She went everyday for about 6 weeks. She also gave up her drivers license so she requires more of our time right now. My mom always was running with us kids so now it is our time to give back. My mom is doing well. For an 89 year old woman, she has a lot of spunk.

My son and his fiance also were planning a spring wedding. They planned a wonderful, fun wedding. Those are Green Bay Packer shoes on her feet! They are a fun couple! My new daughter-in-law is just a joy! I couldn't be happier for them!

Reading has not been happening for me, I have tried but my mind just couldn't concentrate with all that was going on. I also have been a workaholic which has resulted in a horrible case of Planters Fasciitis. I think it is time to slow down and get back to what I love - reading. I am going through my toppling tbr pile and plan on digging in.

Hopefully, you will be hearing from me more often now. I hope you all are well. I am looking forward to reading blogs and hearing all about new reads! I feel like I have missed out on so many books!


  1. It's good to see you back Beth!!

    Congratulations to your son and new daughter!! Love her shoes.

    Will keep your mom in my prayers!

  2. So often I've thought of you and was happy to see an update arrive in my inbox! Wishing much better and healthier days ahead for your mom. She's such a trooper. And congrats on your son's wedding, your daughter-in-law sounds like a sweetie.

  3. Welcome back! That Plantar Fasciitis is nothing to screw around with. I had it for a good year before I was able to feel better. Pain! I'm glad to hear your mom is doing OK...just watched my best friend go through all that with her dad.

  4. Welcome back! Glad to hear your mom is doing better and congrats to the newlyweds.

  5. Welcome back! Your mom is such a strong woman. She's gone through so much and she is determined to win her battles. What a fighter. Congrats to the fun-loving couple, too!

  6. So glad to see you back! I hope you get to read more now. Congrats to the newlyweds and glad to hear that your mom is doing fine.

  7. Welcome back! Congrats to your son and his wife, and I'm so glad to hear your mom is doing well. I hope you're feeling better soon.
