I wanted to let everyone know that I'm going to take a break from the blog for at least a couple of weeks - maybe three. I'm going to be attending the Malice Domestic mystery conference and we've also got some things going on with family and friends. Seems like a good time to step away for a bit. Plus, I want to read a bunch.
I'm planning on coming back in mid-May with several days of posts relating my Malice Domestic adventure. I've done that before and several have said they would like to 'virtually' attend again. I love sharing my pictures and tales, but I will note that it does take a bit of time to put those posts together. So, watch for them, probably the week of May 14-18.
One nice thing is that I should have a number of books to talk about, though the reviews may be a few weeks behind the actual date read. This won't be my only break in upcoming months. We've got several getaways planned for summer and fall, plus it's nice to just read sometimes. I'll likely not be commenting much during the break, but I'll be reading your blog posts.
A happy personal note is that my husband is completely finished with his cardiac rehab and is back to a normal work and golf life. He is doing very well, and he and I both have changed a lot of things about our eating and exercise life. One day before long I'll post a 'before and after' picture of myself. I've lost over 80 pounds and I think it's such a positive change for me. I'm not quite finished, but the health benefits are clear. I've got a few more wrinkles evident now and have had to buy some new clothes (I know, a terrible thing!), but I'm never quitting this lifestyle again. My promise to myself.
Take care everyone and I'll see you soon!
