Good morning, dah-lings! This week tested our faith in humanity, didn’t it? From the tragedy in Boston bookending the entire work week to the massive flooding in the Midwest to the explosion in Texas to the massive earthquakes in Asia, it was enough to make people give serious consideration to the apocalypse or at least want to bury their head in the sand. That being said, the way the first responders handled the entire situation in Boston was awe-inspiring, and any faith that was lost by the bombing was quickly restored by their dedication and professionalism.
I don’t know about you but I think I’m beginning to grow gills. We have had so much rain that we are in one of the areas experiencing flooding. Our house looks like it is on high ground, and there is no standing water anywhere near us, but the rivers in the area have definitely expanded upon their banks, and the farmers’ fields are completely submerged. If that wasn’t enough, we saw snow flurries on Thursday and Friday. Now, I’m beginning to take the weather personally. Enough already!
The readathon is coming! The readathon is coming! Next Saturday to be exact. I’m getting together with two other bloggers and making it a girls’ readathon weekend. I can’t decide if I’m more excited about the readathon or about the girls’ weekend.
Armchair BEA registration is open and waiting for you! I may have stepped down from the planning committee but that doesn’t mean I’m not going to promote this great event. Make sure you stop by the site and sign up for this year’s goodies!
I am happy to report that everyone is finally injury- and sickness-free. The weather is wreaking havoc on everyone’s sinuses but no colds, broken bones, pulled muscles, or anything else that has seemed to have plagued us in recent weeks.
