I'm back!

I can't come up with a song lyric for that. So be it. I'm thinking this might turn into a book blog. I get more and more uncomfortable all the time with sharing personal information about my family in a forum that can be seen/read by anyone. I use Facebook for sharing with friends and family, and just about anyone I'd want to see that stuff has a Facebook account (my sister is the only important person in my life who isn't on Facebook, I think)

So, having said that, one last update. All my girls are playing soccer this spring/summer, with the oldest playing at a more competitive level for the first time. She's also playing on a rep baseball team, so for the foreseeable future, I will leave town on weekends only for soccer and baseball tournaments. The middlest is also playing baseball, but just house league, so that's on weeknights and finishes just after school finishes. That's enough stuff to run around to, so the littlest is just playing soccer and getting dragged to her sisters' games and practices. Hubby is still playing pick up hockey through the summer and coaching soccer. I don't have anything scheduled right now but want to find something. I just can't decide what. I'd happily play hockey through the summer, but I can't find a recreational women's summer league. Besides that, I'm just working, taking care of my house and family and working through a big stack of books. I took some from my mom and dad's house last time I was there, and now have connections to get more - my brother-in-law's fiancee-who-doesn't-have-a-ring-yet is an avid reader AND a high school teacher who has access to the book room at her school. I recently finished three books I intercepted as my sister in law was returning them to her, and then stole another one this weekend that she was going to lend to my sister in law (the sister in law said she wasn't going to get to it for a while, so I could read it first)

My biggest news, though, is that for the first time I can remember, literally, I can see without glasses or contacts! I had laser vision correction a couple of weeks ago and I'm absolutely thrilled with the results. I have slightly better than 20/20 vision now and no real problems. I had some dryness for the first week or so, some feeling like there was something in my eye when there wasn't, but overall, as I said, I'm thrilled.

So, that's what's going on with my family. Next up: book reviews!

Yay! definitely do a book blog. I would love to see what you're reading on a more consistent basis.

I almost went with that! I swear, I had it typed and deleted it!
