After a couple weeks break from school, I’m back at it again. With two classes in a 4.5 week summer session, the pace is hectic. You’d think that would be enough for me, but no, I’m also looking for a new residence – one that is within walking distance of school. Rental rates are a bit higher, but what I’d save on gas and time [Read more →]
Blurb: June and Day arrive in Vegas just as the unthinkable happens: the Elector Primo dies, and his son Anden takes his place. With the Republic edging closer to chaos, the two join a group of Patriot rebels eager to help Day rescue his brother and offer passage to the Colonies. They have only one request—June and Day must assassinate the new Elector.
It’s their chance to change the nation, to give voice to a people silenced for too long. [Read more →]

I haven't bitten my fingernails in over five weeks, not even one little nibble. The secret isn't will power, hot sauce, or bitter apple – its solar nails. Gorgeous, virtually indestructible, pink and white fingernails, on my hands, it’s almost unbelievable. [Read more →]
I took a little time yesterday and found my book list so now my goodreads account is up to date. I’m almost positive there is one book missing but if I can’t remember it I can’t log it. I’d say lesson learned but it’s not like it’s the first time I’ve been through this.
When friends ask what its like to go back to school in my 40s they are surprised to learn that while I find juggling everything challenging at times for the most part I think classes are easier. I’m sure some of it has to do with the general dumbing down of education in America, but I think the rest is due to the fact that I care more about the overall results as an adult than I ever did at 18.

I’ve read some since I last posted a review but I’m so bad about blogging when I’m in school and I didn’t do a hot job of keeping track of what I read so I have a big gap from early February to May. Oh well, such is life, I’ll try to catch up with my thoughts on what I’ve tracked here. [Read more →]

I confess, I’m easily distracted and time has a way of disappearing when I’m doing internet research. Just yesterday I started out researching video production companies for my friend Cami’s wedding. It didn’t take long for that to fall apart. Before you could say presto I had followed a link for Swoon and the journey was on. [Read more →]
My child is an artist through and through. Seriously she finds a million ways to creatively express herself everyday, and she’s definitely got a natural talent. When she was in public school she joined the chorus and loved performing, her teacher mentioned her perfect pitch more than once. Being big fans of Idol and The Voice I have to wonder if I should encourage her in this direction, perhaps a microphone for her upcoming birthday. I’m sure I could swing one with the great deals I saw to save on shure microphones. Now I just have to convince Grandma that the noise won’t be too much. Think she’ll believe it.
With all the horrible tornadoes happening in the midwest we were talking about where we would or wouldn’t want to live when I’m finished with my degree. We really love the area we live in now so a job here would be great. I’m open to things on the southern end of the eastern coastline as well, however, Florida is pretty much out as I’m not a fan of the humidity and Atlanta’s air & traffic are just too awful. Maybe if there was something in North Carolina I could check out more listings for houses for sale in Jacksonville NC. Wherever we end up I can promise you this, it won’t be anywhere that tornados visit with any regularity.
