Alright, I'll post an udpate

Hi folks. I got back from OH Tuesday night and have been pretty busy. I've been working on writing and editing "Dead End Job", my vampire novel. I started it a LONG time ago but life got in the way. Also, I've been reading my little heart out. My recent reads and listens:

1." The Hunger Games" LOVED IT! here's the goodreads link 
I just watched the movie last night w/ my sisters, Jessie & Annie, and my nieces and nephew. It was excellent too!
2. I finished "Ember" go check it out! Go say hi to the author over @ his blog, madison daniel's blog
3. And I have been listening to The Hunger Games soundtrack and a wonderful compilation of Lucero's music my bestie Amber made me.
4. Now I am reading Yasmine Galenorn's "Bone Magic" which is #7 of her Otherworld/Sisters of the Moon series. Goodreads link for that book
5. And...I read/edited a short story my friend Gabrielle is working on. Go find her on facebook-
I am looking forward to reading more!

Now I am going to go back and edit/write more.

you're never really gone

Living On

Going through pictures
Remembering old memories
thinking about the last days of your life
trying to hold onto the things that remind me

I miss you so much already
But I like to think you're somewhere close-by
Watching over us and shining love like you
did in life

We'll always remember you and how you touched us all and
I know that a lot of you lives on

life happens

Well, my adopted mom Carol passed away yesterday morning. She was @ home with family who had kept a constant vigil. I am grateful that she's no longer suffering and is with her maker (whoever/whatever that is). I can only hope that she is hanging out with her dad, other family, friends, and pets that have been waiting for her (I like the idea of Heaven, I hope it really does exist). I am very thankful that I listened to my intuition for once and stuck around. Life is never gonna be the same and she is greatly missed. Services are Saturday and then I am flying back to MA Monday.

In other news, I am OBSESSED with AWOLNATION. Go watch Burn It Down RIGHT NOW!

Can't sleep
Listening to ishuffle music,
Cats racing around the house and using their box as a playground,
trying to stay in this sleepy haze just a bit longer
Don't want to face the day just yet
Not ready to face reality quite yet
can I go back to that dream of strange utopian societies and zombies?
cant I just stay in the rabbit hole for one more day?
The world can wait

...first poem I've written in a LONG Time...

My 3 fav songs right now-
1. Crosses -prurient  here!
2.awolnation-not your fault here
3.bush-the sound of winter

life & family

life is...odd, fretful, annoying, yet joyous, wonderful, amazing and beautiful. I am grateful to be alive, surrounded with family and friends, with a job, an apartment, a car, and all the worldy possessions I can cram into my tiny apartment.I am thankful for the family and friends who have helped me become the person I am today, where I am. Every single person effects your life, just remember that.

I have been spending the last week in Ohio, with my (adopted) family, being together and watching over my Momma Carol. Without her in my life, god knows where or who I would be. The last time I was out here (October last year), she said she was proud of the person I had become and she liked to think she had some part in that. I couldn't tell her then (for fear of bawling my eyes out, i think) that she had a LOT to do with it. I realized, later, that Carol has been a part of my life for as long as my Father was a part of my life.

 Carol & the rest of the Davis clan, came into my life when I was 10, when my Father & I moved to O.W. (OH) in the summer before i started 5th grade. god that year sucked! Anyway, she has watched over me and been a mom-figure since shortly after that. Carol (and david) is one of those amazing people who is so sweet, caring, loving, all-in-out amazing people the world needs more of. There is hardly a nasty bone in her (okay, maybe 1) and everyone who meets her, loves her. She's just amazing. She's always been a mom to me and no amount of thank-you's and I'm-sorry-for-being-an-ass's will ever capture how honored, blessed, and grateful I am to have had her in my life. I know I will never feel the same way her biological daughters do, but she has been the ONLY Mom I have ever really known. She's been my Mom (in a by-law way) since 1999 when she & David extended their hands and hearts to include me in their family; me a sudden parent-less 16 year old with a lot of baggage and family out-of-state. They didn't have to do that. I never asked for that. Hell, I am sure their own daughters didn't want it, nor their other family understand it, but they did it anyway and I accepted. I don't have any regrets, what-so-ever. They have been an amazing family to me and I can never say thank you enough...

It's a terrible misfortune that someone so amazing will soon be taken from us by the big C. It's always the good ones, unfortunately, never the worlds jerks and dicks.

I love you so much Momma Carol.

my word of the day is Peace. Always a good one.

Today is my...Sunday, so i am running around trying to relax and get things done before work tomorrow. And now I have to fund something else to read. hahaha. I'll mark one off my LONG kindle list.

I finished Darynda jones' latest book. I don't do long reviews, but you can read mine.

Third Grave Dead Ahead (Charley Davidson #3)Third Grave Dead Ahead by Darynda Jones

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Awesome! I love this series and this book is just another example of awesome. Charley and her friends really sink their teeth into you. And Reyes...well, he's infuriatingly hot and suspenseful. I ripped through this book very fast and absolutely loved it.

View all my reviews
