This is one of the first things I have had time to do in awhile and I have been meaning to say something about that. My husband is in the hospital and is very sick. I am going through a really rough time and I really have NO time to read or review books right now and for that I am extremely disappointed. I sincerely apologize to all the people who have recently sent me ARCS and I have not reviewed them. That being said...

I have been tagged for a Meme by Stacy at Two Writing Teachers.

1. The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.
2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
3. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read the player’s blog.
4. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

Okay, now the “juicy” stuff:

What were you doing ten years ago?
I was chilling in Daytona Beach Florida after recently graduating from the University of Dayton. Little did I know that my life was soon to change drastically! Less than a month later my grandpa passed away and I met my husband all in the same week.

What would you do if you were a billionaire?

2. Donate money to various places.

4. Start over on my house.
5. Take a long vacation.

7. Give money to friends.
8. Buy my sister everything she needs for her twins to come.

What are three of your bad habits?

Thanks for the tag, Megan! I'm not such a meme person, but I'll tell you that 10 years ago I was living in Boston, finishing up my Ph.D. in engineering, while my better half was finishing up medical school. And if I was a billionaire, I would quit my job, buy houses on each coast, and start some sort of literacy foundation.

Sorry to hear that your husband is so sick - I hope he mends quickly, and that you can get back to normal life, and your books, as quickly as possible.

I'm so sorry to hear about your husband. I hope he's okay. I already posted my meme, thanks for tagging me!

I had no idea your husband was sick. I'm so sorry to hear that. I'll keep him in my thoughts and prayers.


Megan Germano said...

Thanks for all your well wishes, although my husband would be mortified to know I mentioned it here, I just wanted to explain my lack of reviewing. We have a really hard road ahead of us, but we will get through, hopefully. Thanks again!

I am so sorry to hear about your husband. I am keeping you in my thoughts.

A meme is coming up soon....

MotherReader said...

Your tag came at the right time when I was so mentally washed out from the two days of downpours that I couldn't think of anything to write. It's up now - which is probably a meme responding record for me.

So sorry to hear about your husband. Our stupid hamster got sick and I was an emotional wreck about that. I can't imagine the depth of what you're going through with your husband, but I'll send you positive vibes for strength and health.

Barbara O'Connor said...

Thanks, Megan! My meme is up on my blog.

I send my thoughts and well-wishes your way. Hang in there....

Megan Germano said...

Again, thank you everyone!

Katie Dicesare said...

Just got your tag for the meme! Hope your husband is feeling better. It is so busy and crazy this time of year. My thoughts are with you both.

Mary Lee said...

I'm a week behind in blog reading -- hope your husband is better! Remember to take care of yourself, too.

Katie Dicesare said...

answered my meme...hope all is well

Karen said...

I'm behind in reading blogs also -- that pesky end of year stuff.
Anyway, I want you to know that I'm very sorry to hear about your husband. I hope there have been improvements recently. My thoughts are with you.

Megan Germano said...

Hey, thanks Karen. For an update, my husband is not MUCH better. But Better. I appreciate your kindness.
