I’m so sorry that I haven’t posted in about 5 months. I started this blog last spring as a platform to publish reviews, interact with other readers, and hopefully start a beta-reading service.
At the beginning of June, my mom was diagnosed with stage 3c breast cancer. She’s only 56, and we didn’t know what to expect other than it was going to be hard. I spent weeks going to every doctor appointment, chemo infusion and wig shop with her. Thankfully I had just moved back to Idaho and only lived a mile away, and had nothing but time to spend with her. Needless to say, reading and writing reviews wasn’t a priority anymore. Two days ago, she went in for her surgery and is now in recovery. The doctor found a few positive lymph nodes, so now we’re waiting for the biopsy results to see if she’s cured.
Now that my mom is regaining her health and I’ve fallen into a rhythm at work, I’m ready to start blogging again! Yay! I have to thank a fellow Litsy user, @awishman, for posting the 2018 Back to the Classics Challenge as it was the perfect inspiration to get back on my blog today.
