As much fun as the book reviews are, it does leave my blog a little flat on personal details, though, so I thought that maybe I should check in every once in a while, maybe every Friday or maybe less, and fill you in on what's going on in my life. It has been years since I have posted anything here, so let me bring you up to speed on me and my loved ones.

My mom and I are closer than ever and I can't imagine my life without her. She is still providing daily doggy day care for my dogs on top of managing her own horde of three rat terriers and one Siamese cat. I think the last time I wrote here I had three rat terriers, Harley, Scooter, and Pixie. Almost two years ago I added a rat terrier, chihuahua rescue who I named Pooka. She came to us from a pet hoarding/puppy mill home where she churned out so many puppies that it took a huge toll on her mind and body. Soon after she came to us she broke her jaw and we spent over $5,000 saving her life. This was only possible because of the kindness of friends and strangers who supported her GoFundMe campaign. I'm happy to report that Pooka is happy and healthy and a holy terror who bullies Scooter and adores me. I understand the first, but not sure about the second. It's okay, though, I adore her right back. She may not have many years left since she was about 11 when she came to us, but we'll take whatever we can get.

If you've gotten this far, do me a favor and leave a comment. I like to think there is someone out there, listening. If you're here just for the reviews, that's cool, I promise to get back to them soon. I just thought that maybe you'd like to hear a little about me once in a while, too.
