Little changes are okay, for the most part. But, even those can make my head spin at times (which is a unique thing to see - LOL).
Case in point - this morning, my plan was to drop the kids off and head to Sam's to get a tire replaced. If I got there early enough, maybe the wait wouldn't be as long. Well, that idea was blown out of the water when Andrew didn't wake up at his usual time. As of 9:30 this morning, he is STILL sleeping. (In his defense, he only got about a ten minute nap yesterday in the car. Mike said Andrew also woke up a couple of times during the night.) So, instead of going to Sam's today, I guess it will have to be tomorrow or Wednesday. There is plenty for me to do around here; I just need to get my head in order and get to work.
One other thing - my dear, sweet friend Stacy sent me an e-mail last night. She and her family are praying about coming to this area during Spring Break. I am hoping and praying they can come. It has been about ten years since we last saw each other. Pray that God will work out all the details and they can make it. It would be awesome to get to see her and her family again!! We've both added a few kids to our families since I saw her last.

Tina Ann Forkner
This book was good, but I was looking for more. When I first read the description, I imagined a suspense/mystery type of book. There was some mystery and suspense, but not enough. The ending was anti-climatic for me. I felt that the appearance of Tom Bentley was added as an afterthought. I did like how Lillian came to terms with the deaths of her family, and how she restored the relationship with her sister, Geena, who was with Lillian's family at the time of the accident. The epilogue was the best part, seeing how everyone was settling in and how time can heal all wounds.
Tina Ann Fortner also wrote Ruby Among Us, which could be considered either a prequel or first in a series to Rose House. It is the story of Kitty and Blake DiCamello, their granddaughter Lucy and Lucy's search for information about her mother, Ruby.
The Sweetgum Ladies: Knit for Love
This book was awesome!! Knit for Love is the second in a series. Even though I had not read the first book, The Sweetgum Knit Lit Society, I was able to jump right into the story and understand what was going on with the characters. Beth did a wonderful job detailing each woman's struggles with the stories, their perceptions of love, and dealing with the problems they faced. I can't wait to go to my local library and see if they have the first book and hope many more Sweetgum Knit Lit books are to come. I highly recommend this book.
Beth Pattillo has written nine books including Heavens to Betsy and Jane Austen Ruined My Life.
The Confidential Life of Eugenia Cooper
This is another awesome book!! I have always been drawn to historical adventures and this one fit the bill perfectly. The story kept me turning the pages, wondering how things were going to work out. The ending was unexpected but was perfect. This was a great story and I can't wait to read other books by this author.

This is a picture of the top of a glass-top end table we had in our house.
There are two end tables; one is a little taller than the other. There is also have a matching coffee table that has three pieces of glass. I wasn't able to get a picture of it.
This is a closer look at the vacuum.
It is a Bissell Powerforce.
This is a closer look at the side of the silver shower curtain rings that we have with the blue duck shower curtain.
