An Update

So the other day, I shared some interesting facts about myself in my Sunshine Awards post. I hope you learned something or at least smiled.Sorry that I've been so quiet over here lately. I've only posted a few times in the past while and I thought I would share some of what's been going on in my life. 

Back in February I got to feeling really unwell. The pain got really bad one night and I ended up in the emergency room. Long story short the end result was that I had to have some "minor" surgery. As some people say, "Minor surgery is only done on someone else." I realize that for the doctor it wasn't a big deal, but for me it was huge. 

Pop Rocks is amazing at taking care of me. When I had to go the ER, I woke him up in the middle of the night and he never once complained. I wasn't even planning on waking him up, but somehow my body did without my brain's consent. He was ready to go right then. I called the nurse line from my insurance (which I love BTW) and after her series of questions the nurse on the line recommended that I get help within the next three hours. Oh, and that I not drive myself. That was more than enough to get me in the car (though I insisted that Mary go out first). 

My parents came to town and helped to get me on the road to recovery and I missed a week at work. It was interesting to be home from work for a whole week. Typically if I'm off that long, we are on vacation (like this time last year) or its a major holiday. It was pretty restful, but t.v. gets pretty boring after a few days. There was a local murder trial on all week, so I ended up watching a lot of that coverage. It was really interesting, but so so sad.

Since then, I've been adjusting back to real life (and life post operation) and working on lots of little projects. I should show you some pictures. I only have after pictures, but that should be okay.

Oh, one of my dearest friends came to visit a couple weekends back and spent one night with me before her family got to town. I've also had some really long and wonderful conversations with my other bestie's and its been so great. Those girls make my life so much more beautiful and rich!

Cruel Harvest by Frances Elizabeth Grubb

My latest BookSneeze selection is the book Cruel Harvest by Frances Elizabeth Grubb. The story is Mrs. Grubb’s memoir of her life growing up with an abusive father. This was a hard book to read. I’ve always had a very tender spot in my heart for children that have to endure abuse. I never had to and am so thankful to my Heavenly Father for his grace in my life. Mrs. Grubb’s story was shocking, appalling and full of hope.

Her journey led her all over the country and down many dark paths. There were times of light in her life though that made all the difference to her story. Most interesting to me was how she overcame what could have made her a hard person and was still a seemingly kind and loving woman.

My heart broke over and over again as I read her story. There were times that it seemed she had escaped only to be trapped again. It was amazing to read about her tenacity and endurance for something that would have likely killed if not the body, the soul of most people. My life e…

Rugosa: A Survival Story from Omaha to London by Creek Stewart

Creek Stewart of "Fat Guys in the Woods" fame released his first novel, Rugosa: A Survival Story from Omaha to London, on February 14. I just finished it and I was very impressed. 

Omaha is a boy scout and since the loss of his father the entire world has been turned upside down. Now he finds that one of the people nearest to him in life, London, is in trouble and he has to risk everything to save her.

Will be able to make it to her in time? Will she even be alive when he gets there? What kind of danger will he face on the way there? 

Find out the answers by reading the book. (What'd you think I was going to say?)

I really did enjoy this book. It was a gripping story and only took me three sittings to get it finished. A lot of the plot hits closer to home than I would like. An added bonus was some of the survival skills that I picked up along the way. 

I could really relate to Omaha as a character. He is a quiet person that prefers the outdoors to being around people. While b…

Life and Other Near Death Experiences by Camille Pagan

Libby's entire life was turned on its head in a matter of hours one cold Chicago day. How she reacts will redefine how she lives and will change the rest of her life.

I sincerely loved this book. I was hooked from the first paragraph. Despite what could be considered an outrageous plot, I found it believable and relatable. I definitely recommend it though, there are some things that could be considered triggers for some readers so avoid it if you are sensitive about cancer, losing a parent or divorce. 

Pagán's writing was refreshing and real. I think what I loved most was the epilogue that actually wrapped up the story, without putting it in a box with a bow on it.

Since I didn't receive a free copy of this book I am linking to it here for you to purchase on Amazon. This is an affiliate link, which means that I will get a small part of the profits: Life and Other Near Death Experiences by Camille Pagan.
