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!

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…

Falling For You by Becky Wade

I don't think I have read a Becky Wade book that I haven't liked. Her newest release, Falling For You, followed that trend.

In this sequel to True To You which I reviewed last year, Willow Bradford must face her past when her ex-boyfriend shows back up in her life. Corbin Stewart is cajoled to recruit Willow as an investigator into a family mystery by his almost-niece, Charlotte. The three of them team up to figure out what happened in Charlotte's family.

Willow and Corbin are a study in opposites. Willow is a rule-following people-pleaser. Corbin is used to charming his way into getting what he wants with no care for the rules. The sparks between the two are hot, but their past still haunts them.

I loved this book. The characters were charming and endearing. I love that this series continues from book to book, though each can be read alone. It was fun to read as the characters grew and changed in their relationships to God, others and themselves. 

I definitely recommend this …

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…
