FinishYear Update

I haven't been very good at blogging lately. Sometimes its hard to express what I have to say. Sometimes I just don't really have anything to say. Here's a quick update on how I am doing with my 2012 goals:

1. Read through the Bible: I've really dropped the ball on this one. I need someone to get in my face about this one and really hold me accountable. Hopefully I can do better on this one and get caught up. I just did catch me up and I am on day 29. So I'm technically only 2 days behind, but I started 4 days ahead. This isn't good. I'm gonna make a mini-goal to be caught up by this time next week.

2. Start a Creative Venture to Help Others: This is still in the works. I am working with a friend to organize this and I have also started telling my friends about it. When I have more firm details I will definitely be letting you know!

3. Keep the house clean: I have been doing pretty good on this one this year. There is always more that can be done. I slacked some last week, because I deep cleaned last weekend for a girls night. I need to get back on track and start cleaning nightly this week.

4. Read two Books a month and Blog about them: So if you've been reading this blog this month, you know I haven't done this. I did finish one book and I will work on a blog for it. I hope I can have it ready for Thursday.

5. Blog at least 5 times a week. January had 4.5 weeks which means that I should have blogged roughly 22 times. I blogged 14 when you count this one. I didn't quite reach this goal (see item #1). I think I mentioned that if I blog 5 times a week for 52 weeks it is 260 blog posts. So I can still catch up on this one.

  1. Are you using a Bible plan, or a specific Bible? I did the NLT Bible in a Year a few years ago and really enjoyed it. I think the NLT is a good translation for daily-plan reading because it's more down-to-earth.

    1. I am using a You Version plan on my phone. I am using the TNIV version but I do love the NLT version of the Bible. I get so much more out of it because I can understand it better.

How to Complain

After yesterday's post, I though I should provide something a little more helpful to my readers. Here are some tips I've developed from answering customer service calls and emails from time to time. You may have some other extremely helpful tips, feel free to leave them in the comments so we can all benefit!
Be Specific. This is definitely my number one tip. If you aren't specific it means that the person on the other end doesn't know details that can be used to rectify the situation. Also, the more details you provide the more credibility you lend to the situation. If it is a reoccurring incident call each time it happens. From a customer service standpoint, we would rather rectify the situation now than find about it in two days when it has happened two more times.Don't Rant, Yell, or Scream. Tell someone you would like to complain and then do it with a cool head. This may mean that you need to write an email complaint versus getting on the phone. Keep in mind th…

Lizzy & Jane by Katherine Reay

I'm a big fan of Katherine Reay's work. Her stories are entertaining and deep. I took this a book to read on the beach, but I couldn't put it down and spent time reading instead of beaching. Lizzy and Jane are sisters. Estranged by the past and living on different coasts when Jane is diagnosed with cancer. Lizzy returns home for a visit and they struggle to reconnect in ways that will help heal. 

You can trust Reay to take you on an emotional journey with her books and Lizzy and Jane did not disappoint. The characters are real with their own passions, struggles and flaws. Their family is fractured, but the hope they have for rebuilding is alive. 

I loved this book and I think you will too. My only complaint was that it eventually ended.

The Royal We by Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan

Hi, Sweetums! I should warn you that I'm about to gush!

I just finished The Royal We by Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan. To say it was unputdownable is an understatement.

Cornell college student Bex Porter decides to do an exchange program at Oxford one semester and when she arrives on campus who should open the door to her new life but Steve Prince Nick. Bex didn't come to Oxford in hopes of finding love, she came for the adventure and the art. What she finds instead is something so much more.

Let me start by saying that I love princess books. From The Princess Diaries to The Runaway Princess to the Royal Wedding Series, I can't get enough.

The Royal We did not disappoint with its lively and well developed characters. It's British backdrop and truthful narrator gave it the feel of having a chat with your bestie over a cup of tea. I stayed up late and got up early so that I could keep reading. I didn't want this book to end. But it didn't disappoint, even until…
