I hope you don’t mind but I would like to share some wonderful news I received, and for all you mothers out there, you will understand, what I am feeling. And for those with little ones, treasure each and every moment, because the time goes by in the snap of your fingers. It seems just like yesterday that I was being wheeled out of the OR after having a Csection under general anesthesia and the nurse placing a beautiful baby boy on the gurney with me and saying “meet Mark James”, our 2nd baby boy. Well, Mark graduated last week from Eastern Kentucky University in a very specialized field, Fire and Safety Engineering. Not only did he receive his B.S., but he graduated Magna Cum Laude and working a full time job throughout his college years. My baby is all grown up. His Dad and I are so proud of him, his accomplishments and the man he has become. And add to this, his gf Jess, my reading buddy, who we absolutely love and adore!!
1. Do you like your ice cream in a dish, waffle cone, pretzel cone, sugar cone or cake cone?
My first choice would be a cup because my favorite comfort food is a 5 scoop
sundae from Friendly’s , and my second choice would be a sugar cone with ice cream.
2. Do you read the newspaper daily?
I used to but it seemed that the cost of the paper kept increasing but
the paper kept decreasing. Now we only get the weekend paper delivered
3. Marinara or meat sauce?
Being Italian, we call it a meat sauce “gravy”
4. Last time you cried?
2 months ago
5. What word/phrase do you find really annoying?
The “N” word
I’m super excited…can’t wait for an excuse to sit around and read! I don’t care what needs to be done around the house (aside from my writing goals). I’m going to read, read, read! Here are the dates and times for the read-a-thon: Monday, January 17 at 12 am until Sunday, January 23 at 11:59 pm (adjust your time zone as appropriate…I’m on central time). As I’m pretty sure there are no other read-a-thons that week (I checked and double checked so as to not intrude on someone else’s event), we will be using #readathon hashtag on Twitter. I would really appreciate any help in spreading the word. Also, if there are any bloggers and/or authors out there who would like to host a mini-challenge/giveaway during the event, please email me at truebookaddictATgmailDOTcom. Also, please email me or leave a comment if you have any questions. You can sign up and participate at any time during the read-a-thon…this is a flexible event. I hope you will join me for a week of reading fun!
Want to join? It’s not to late!! And….what’s one more little challenge to add to all the ones you already have? And if you join this one……then you should join the one that Gina and I are hosting….The Reading Challenge Addict Challenge lol.
