So we got the house. I'm totally boggled. We didn't intend to buy so quick but the deal was too good to pass up. I literally spent the first day sitting in my recliner in a daze. I'm not the jump-up-and-down-get-excited type, I'm more the stare-off-into-space-in-shock type. But it's sinking in and I'm very excited. It's so bizarre though. My parents are losing their house just as I'm buying mine. Not good. Fortunately they're not trying to move in with me. I spent the first day kind of obsessively worrying about that after my dad threw out some broad hints. But I let my mom know that I had no intention of letting that happen and she agreed it would be a disaster. Thank God. So blogging. I have no idea what to post. I'm am all flustered and not at all my normal self. Ideas would be welcome at this point. And if no ideas are forthcoming patience is also good. I have a ton of books to review and I'm going to have to decide which ones I can part with to have guest reviewers. The problem is that my success rate with guest reviewers is about 50% since about half the people who have received books have not come back with a review. So I'm skeptical about continuing the practice. I don't know. I will have to think on that. I'm rambling aren't I? Seriously, I am totally discombobulated right now.
