I'm still here!

Hello everyone!  It's been awhile since I last posted and I just wanted to pop in and say hi and let you all know that all is well.   I started reading A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Marti on the 3rd and I'm still reading it. I can't believe the book has taken me over 2 weeks to read it!  I still have over 100 pages left too. Ugh.  Don't get me wrong, I'm really enjoying it, but with long books I always get to a point where I'm just ready to be done..no matter how good it is.

I have finished an audio book, I finished it last week.  I just didn't get around to writing up a review of it and now I just don't feel like it.  I listened to The Awakening by Kelly Armstrong. It's the 2nd in a YA series and it was good.  Sometimes the narrator got a bit annoying with her tone for a couple of the characters but at the same time I could understand why she used the tone she did.  Heck..they are teenagers.   I'm sure I'll continue listening to the series since I don't own the books and I've already started the series on audio.

As far as other things, not dealing with the fatigue like I was but dealing with other issues.. Nothing major, mostly I think it's just some medication I'm on that's causing my hormones to be crazy.   So I find myself just annoyed at everything which means it's hard to read my favorite blogs, do my reviews, etc.  When I get home from work I find that I just sit there..not really paying much attention to things.  I guess this is one reason it's taking me so long to read A Game of Thrones huh?  We've also been busy on the weekends doing stuff around the house that doesn't give me much free time.  Plus..other things going on that I don't want to trouble you all with on this blog. I do have a Friday Smile post coming up for this week that explains some of what's been going on.  Then after that I have some pictures from when I was younger that I thought I would share.  Boy are you all in for a treat!   Fingers crossed I'll be able to get several posts created so I don't have such a long time in between posts again.  Of course...toes and fingers crossed I finish Game of Thrones soon so I can actually review a book. lol!   And..before you ask..yes I did record the HBO premier of Game of Thrones.  Yes I did watch the first 40 min before I decided to go to bed since I was falling asleep.  And, finally, yes..I did enjoy it.

Welcome back, glad you stopped in with an update. Good luck with getting the medications straighten out.

I think the series is on my tbr list but I'm not sure I own them yet.

I enjoyed The Awakening also, I did print, and have purchased the 3rd but haven't read it yet.

Keep in touch :-)

Book Dragon - Thanks - if I'm lucky I won't have to be on this medication after this month...but I've never really been lucky. haha! I'll probably listen to the 3rd in the series next month...like to spread out the series books and not read/listen to them too close together.
