03/31/2012 My beautiful daughter, Kylin married the love of her life: John. I wished them forever happiness.

Please know that if you post something for me to see that it would take several days for me to be back online to see it. It may also take me days to journal a book received in the post, as I do not regular computer access at home at this time.

The State of New Jersey is going to be in for some tough decisions as our new Governor takes his position next week. As a state worker, I am hoping for the best outcome for all the changes he will be making.

Of the 38 bookrings that I have read this year. 2 are still in my possesion: 1 received by me in late October and the other received in December. I have sent pm's to both organizers about still having them and apologized for the delay. Have heard nothing from them yet. Hope to get them out in the mail next week. Of the 36 sent on, all except 3 have been journalled as received by the next participant. 1 was sent out in March 2009 but not received until from the journal entry. I communicated with the next participant to see if she would check the post mark, verifying the date sent. Though she communicated with me several times, she was angry and never responded to the request. :-(. I don't know how else to handle this matter, I have kept all receipts recently and have tried to scan them into a friend's computer and then load them on as the "photo" for the book, it has not been successful that far.

I will be posting links here of the RABCKS I have sent out, to the best of my knowledge everyone has received at least 1 books as required in the sweepstakes and most times 3 or 4 books.

RABCKS or Sweepstakes contests books sent:
2. Wicked
3. Santa Cruise

01/24/2010 I have two grown children 27 and 20. The 20 year old has just moved into my husband's house that I purchased in July 2009, this should lift some of the burden of two mortgages from my shoulders. Please continue to pray that the rest of the Estate will be resolved soon. It has been a very long 23 months. My son was only 19 when he stood up to the man trying to take over the estate without a valid signed will. He did this on behalf of himself and his two older half-sisters. It was a huge undertaking for a young man and I agreed to assist him. Two houses have sold... one 08/01/2008 and one on 07/17/2009(to me). We have 1 more house to sell, it has been by the tenant/man who tried to take over when my son's grandmother passed away. We would like to have some closure and move on with the rest of life. For those wanting to send vibes, prayers, etc. they are most welcome: we are hoping that the mortgage company will accept a deed in lieu of foreclosure. Thank you all.

An avid reader, I read all genres and usually purchase at yard sales, library sales, good will, etc.
