I’m going to keep this brief because, well I just took some pain meds and I’m sure I’ll be rather loopy here soon.
If We Were Having Coffee. . .
I’d like to say thank you to everyone that sent me well wishes. They were greatly appreciated. According to the doctor I’m on a slow, but steady recovery process. It’s true what they say once you past 30 your body doesn’t bounce back.
A brief recap from my last Coffee Share. As you may know I was hospitalized and had surgery for a bowel blockage and twisted colon. The part of the colon that was removed was the part in which the appendix is attached. The doctor told me on one of his visits that it also appears that I had appendicitis. Now just by virtue of the part of the colon they had to remove the appendix came out too. Yay me. Free appendectomy. Or was it?

I’m in the process of revamping and rethinking some things on my blog. I did my first Throwback (Flashback Friday) post a few weeks ago and truly enjoyed it.

Top Ten Books I Want My Future Children to Read (Or nieces and nephews, Godchildren, etc.)
1. Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White – This is a childhood favorite of mine. It’s about love, friendship, kindness. We could all do with a little more of that.
2. The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie – This was my first introduction to Alexie and I loved it. The novel is a semi-autobiographical, young adult novel about Junior, a budding cartoonist growing up on the Spokane Indian reservation. Junior leaves the rez to attend an all-white high school in a neighboring farm town and labeled a traitor by his tribe.
3. The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood – When I read this several years ago I didn’t care for it. I’ve since read it and have throughly enjoyed it. Continue reading
