What is 7249?

How many pages I have read since mid May! Talk about a major reading jag. I knew that I had been reading a whole lot lately but didn't realize just how much so. You may be wondering what I have been reading so here goes:

Janet Evanovich - The Stephanie Plum series 1-14 including the 3 novellas. (17 books in total.)
Stephanie Meyer - Twilight & New Moon
Sue Grafton - T is for Trespass
Diane Whiteside - The Irish Devil
America's Cheapest Family
1-2-3 Magic: Effective Discipline for Children 2-12

GRAND TOTAL - 23 books in about 2-1/2 months

I'll come back and try to give a review for all of these books as I have time. I'm in the middle of reading another book when I'm not studing.

    Wow! You do have been reading a lot! :) Right now I'm reading "The Other Boleyn Girl"... I really liked the movie, so I wanted to read the book too. I'm only starting it, so we'll see how long does it takes me to read it completely.

  2. Wow!! Great job!!! I was pretty proud of myself that I finished 2 books in 3 months!! LOL Hopefully I can finish this 3rd one before I start work again!!!

  3. Wow! You and I have the same taste in books!! Haven't read the new Stephanie Meyer or Evanovich yet. Trying to save $$ and not buy books right now. While living with my mom, I've now read almost every Debbie Macomber because they're here and I don't have much to do--LOL! What a neat idea--I wonder how many pages i've read this year...

  4. Wow you are reading machine! I just finished all 4 books in the Twilight series in 8 days so I am just about sick of reading for a while!

  5. Holy Moly Suzanne - that is a whole pile of reading. I can understand how you can read that much though, because I am known for not putting a book down once I start it, even if it is 3.30am in the morning!

Guess who is Sewing...

Look what I made!!! I have not done anything creative in a very long time. Don't ask me what made me decide to give sewing a go again because I have no idea. The pattern for this bag is from Alicia Paulson and is called Jane Market Bag, you can find it on her website for only $6. It was so easy to follow the instructions. I would definitely recommend that you have a larger cutting surface and ruler to make it easier to cut the pieces out. My little 12x12 cutting surface and 6x13 clear ruler made cutting the pieces slightly difficult but not impossible.

Don't you just love the red fabric! I purchased the fabric at JoAnn Fabrics a couple of years ago to make an apron and since I had some left over thought I would use it for my first bag. The pattern calls for the use of 4 different fabrics but I decided to just use the 3. The inside of the bag is lined with the same black and white check fabric I used on the handles. These are so cute & are a great size so I will definitely …

Holy...Hot Flash... Batman!!!

It appears that I am definitely in menopause at least according to my recent blood test. I've been going through perimenopause for the last several years. You know hot flashes, night sweats and crazy cycles, etc. In the past twelve months I've only had 2 periods and the hot flashes have been worse than ever!

Symptoms of Menopause:

Life On An Even Keel...

On An Even Keel is an idiom that means - calm and not likely to change suddenly, balanced. This is how I want my life to be. It use to be this way 15 years ago and I'm not sure exactly what happened to change that position. Everything about my life feels completely out of balance & so crazy and I cannot take it any more! Some way, some how we have got to turn things back around and get on an even keel again!!! 

My plan for 2011 is to find that balanced and calm life again. I am working on cleaning out and getting rid of stuff. Only keeping what means something to us. I want to get started working on decorating our house and turning it into a HOME and not just a house. And I want to get our finances in a better place. As always I am open to any suggestions anyone may have to assist in this change.
