Crawling Out from Under My Rock...

On Tuesday, May 10th I lost one of my best friends...my mother-in-law. Our relationship was more than just in-laws; just about every Saturday morning since we moved to Texas you could find us gabbing over skype on everything from the previous nights tv lineup to how to be a mom to a boy. I could talk to her about anything and she was never judgemental, and always had something enlightening to share. Its just been a huge loss, and my husband's heart has been broken beyond words. R.I.P.

Her final wishes were very specific about her cremation- she didn't want to have a funeral, and didn't want any big to-do. After much discussion, my husband and his sister decided that we would all take a trip somewhere tropical and spread her remains....she loved a good beach! So, in July we'll all be heading to the Dominican Republic to take her on a final vacation.

I'll get more up to date with posts in a short while. Just haven't really felt like myself lately. Don't you worry, I'll get there soon enough.

Taptu RSS Reader

I just found out about Taptu and its a fantastic addition to a tablet. It lays all your feeds in a convenient way, and gives you the option to add facebook and twitter feeds as well. The killer feature for me is the way the twitter feed shows the full content from any attached links. So I can actually used Taptu as my one stop shop for all my content.
