sunday-post-catClock Rewinders on a Book Binge is a Sunday re-cap post started by Amanda at On A Book Bender and Tara at 25 Hour Books.  It’s a chance to share our love of other blogs.  The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer and it’s a chance to showcase new books and re-cap your week of blogging.

This-week-on-the-blog

I won’t bore you with too many details but I kind of gave myself a break from blogging for about a week or two there back in April.  Besides balancing a part-time job with keeping the hubs happy (“noooooo, I’m not blogging…”), I planned and executed my son’s birthday party while hosting my family in town.  Around the same time, my father-in-law took ill after a routine surgery.  I’m extremely sad to say that he passed on suddenly last week and my hubs is again out of town in California for the funeral as I type.  So, crap-tastic spring so far.  Compared to others, at least I have my health (hang in there, Kimba!!).

Other than glancing at Facebook, I have not been paying attention to anyone’s blog or any of the happenings going on in our little corner of the world.  I did post this week about what happened during my break from blogging when I discovered my site was hacked.  Check out that little ditty HERE.  I’m happy to report my migration from GoDaddy to HostGator is complete and I’m happy as a clam.  If you notice anything wonky, PLEASE let me know!!!

  1. I’m so sorry to hear about your father-in-law. My condolences to you and your husband.

    A break every now and then is good and necessary. I read your post about the hack; I’m glad you got i sorted out but what a nuisance! I hope things calm down for you.
