Back Home

We had a wonderful trip, and I both hated to leave and was eager to get home. After getting home, things have been hectic for everyone- all 17 family members. Back to a normal life, and trying to catch up with everything that had continued at a regular pace while we were on beach time, and to cooperating with the clock after that time of no alarm clocks or watches...

I've been trying to catch up on emails and comments, but am still in the process. So easy to get sidetracked by this clever little time-consuming bit of technology; I check an email or comment and check that blog and then follow the links and, in a flash, I've forgotten that I've other things that need to be done.

Here is one recent digression
-- I spent a good deal of time looking at info about book clubs and scrolling down looking at book titles. LisaMM at Books on the Brain has some tips about all things book club and has lots of suggestions from commenters and guest bloggers. If I decide to try organizing another book club, I will make use of this great resource. Check it out.

I have about 6 books to review and will get to them as soon as I get caught up on everything else. I hope! Especially since some of them were excellent!

My new lap top organization is confusing and trying to get my pictures uploaded is another chore that I've been wrestling with for a while. Right now, must get back to the real world for a while and more chores and errands that hang over me like a black cloud.


  1. Welcome back! I know what you mean about trying to get caught up. I wasn't on vacation, but I was at a conference all last week, and I've been behind ever since -- at home and at work!

  2. I'm happy you're back...thanks for the link to Books On The Brain.

  3. Hi Jen! Thanks for the shout out and the kind comments on my blog. You made my day!! Take care, Lisa, Books on the Brain

  4. Lisa - :) It is so easy isn't it? Amazing how far behind you can get in such a short time. Hope we both manage to get caught up soon!

    Bybee - Glad to be back and that you enjoyed the link!

    lisamm - I had a great time visiting!

  5. It's good to have you back, Jenclair! I haven't been able to spend too much time on the computer the last few days and I'm already feeling far behind. I don't know if I will manage to get caught up this weekend with company coming, but I'll make an effort. I am looking forward to reading your reviews!

  6. Bookfool - Thanks, Nancy!

    LF - Amazing how hard it is to keep up, isn't it? Hope you and your company have a great time and that you can slip in a few minutes on the computer!

  7. Welcome home! I haven't been away, but I feel as behind as you! I think it's the season. Too much outdoor time and not enough computer/reading time. Oh, well. It'll all be here when I get to it. No rules about reading everything in one day, thank goodness.

  8. Thanks! I agree that the season plays a big part in blogging and have struggled with computer time lately. Pleasant weather is meant to be enjoyed!
