A New Blog -

I have a new blog that I have just started up. I am journaling what my husband and I are experiencing as we try to adopt a special little boy.

I've never been a Mommy before, but I've just been shoved into the deep end of the pool - head first. Not only do we now have a four year old, we have one with special challenges. Any and all comments and suggestions on the blog about motherhood, in general and in abstract, will be more than appreciated!

I'm probably nuts. . .

. . . but I'm doing a Summer Road Trip Extravaganza with my daughter. It is a rush trip. I had made plans to have a car shipped out to me from KY, then on Saturday the shippers called and said they couldn't do it. After a long debate (about 15 minutes), Megan and I decided to fly out there this coming Monday and drive the car back to Utah. Which is why I won't be making it to the luncheon next Saturday. I'll probably be somewhere in Colorado around then.

Anyway, we decided to make it a really fun adventure and turn it into a bloggy sideshow. I hope you'll come to my blog and read about it, leave comments and suggestions. We'll be posting about our trip every step of the way and giving away lots of prizes. In fact, some of the contests for prizes have already started. . .

Summer Book Trek 2008

I know lots of you are big readers so I wanted to let you know about a summer reading challenge featuring LDS fiction.

It's hosted by LDS Publisher on the LDS Fiction Blog.

This is the intro post. It has a link to the sign up page.

It's super easy—you only have to read and post about one book. And you can use a book(s) you're already reading for other challenges.

I'm doing it. (I'll also be hosting my usual Summer Reading Thing beginning on June 20th, the first day of summer. You can use the same books for it too. Let you know more about that one later.)

Hope you'll join me for this challenge and mine later this month.
