I am Still Alive

Just a quick post to say that I am still alive. We had a fabulous holiday and in spite of our efforts at simplicity our kids were once again spoiled by our families. We stayed in WJ for a week and a half. I slept in until 9 or 10 every day thanks to grandparents who fed my kids breakfast and let us sleep. It was wonderful!! I maybe shouldn't have been so lazy though cuz now I am playing catch up. This time of year is so busy. New Primary Stuff for church list after list after list, activities, board meetings. We also have new kids at work. Busy busy busy but that is how I like it. I know a lot of people that have it a lot worse than me so I can't complain.

So I think this week we might all go get hair cuts- maybe not Cam- I cut his last month. I will post pictures if we do it.

I just finished the Percy Jackson and the Olympian Series. I totally loved it an recommend it to anyone who is like me and can't get enough YA fantasy. I studied mythology a little in HS and took an ancient civilizations class in college but these books really increased my knowledge of the Greek Gods. It was a fun way to learn them without feeling like you were learning at all.
Anyways a great read if you haven't checked them out yet you should. Oh I read the last Book of Bayern Forest Born by Shannon Hale. I really love those books and the Characters. I really hope that some day she will write more about Isi, Enna Dasha, Rin, Razo and Finn. I recommend these too.

Hope this informative post wasn't too boring....... Happy New Year!!


  1. You've mentioned Hale's books a lot. I really need to check them out.

    Sleeping in for 1 1/2 weeks...sounds heavenly. That is what I miss about staying with family.

  2. good to know! we like having you alive Trina!

  3. It's always nice to get the chance to sleep in, although I tend to feel guilty for doing so! :)
