I just finished typing up a review for later this month; I now how five reviews already typed up and scheduled. I have never been this far ahead and I've got to tell you, it feels good! Even better, in the next day or so, I will finish up my last book tour book for the year. I do love getting the books for review, and have certainly discovered some gems that I never would have found otherwise, but I am so excited to be able to dive into my own books for the remainder of the year.
Every so often, I begin to question the sanity of staying in Nebraska. Heading into winter, especially after a winter as horrible as last winter was, that feeling is particularly strong. Last night Miss H and I were called into duty to bring cheer and laughter to my niece. I felt a bit like Batman responding to the Bat signal. The four of us enjoyed chips, salsa, and drinks (although I'm not sure anyone seated near us enjoyed having us around). Most of all we enjoyed copious amounts of laughter, developed a few new "inside" jokes, and reminded ourselves, once again, of why we have chosen to stay near to family.
"All for one and one for all" became our rallying cry Saturday night. Thank you, Alexandre Dumas. Oh, and if you were wondering, steak knives make a more than adequate substitute for swords!
