Is it possible? You tell me? I decided to rearrange furniture about a week ago. As we all know, when moving bookshelves, you have to take all the books off. So I decided that if I was gonna take all the books off the shelves, I would at least organize them so they could be found. Then I decided to make a sort of informal catalog so that I would know exactly what I own and not purchase multiple copies of the same book. Then it went on to putting the first letter of the authors last name on the spine so that I could easily keep them in order in the future. Now, I haven't cataloged the hardback books yet, but here's pictures of my shelves, keep in mind, I've been so distracted all week by the books that the rest of the room has been neglected and random things that formerly resided on the shelves are currently strewn all over the floor. So my plan of turning happy meal toys into Christmas ornaments has been postponed until I clean up my living room thoroughly. lol. anyway, here's some pics. Maybe, when I finish (cleaning that is), I'll post my list of books too.

Well, after some thought, I decide that if I were to be a book I'd be one by one of 2 authors.
1st. Something by Dr. Suess, because his books are easy to read, they tend to rhyme, they always have great advice and teach you something, and of course, his books can tend to get a bit long winded. :) If I had to choose just one, I'd be torn between 2.
One is about a character who stands up for what he believes in and the other tells you that you can accomplish anything you put your mind too.
As for the other author, I'd have to be one of Terry Pratchett's books about Xanth. I don't know if I could choose just one though. They're good stories that are full of silliness in the form of puns. I just love them!!

OK, so most people know that I, along with the other ladies in my family shop after Thanksgiving. Not just regular shopping, but standing outside of the store at 4:30am type shopping. This year I was actually slightly injured. At the first store I went to (the one me and the fam met up at) a woman rammed her shopping cart into the back of my ankle, right where the Achilles tendon is. It hurt like _____ for days. I'm all better now though and I got all the good stuff I wanted at great prices and had fun with the fam too. Gotta love traditions. Every year, everyone comes to Fort Wayne for Thanksgiving and the girls go shopping on the day after while the guys stay home and watch football. The only drawback this year was that my grandma wasn't able to go. She just didn't feel up to it. Fortunately both she and my other grandma are now at there respective homes and not in the hospital anymore.
The pic with multiple people is my aunt, my cousins and then me (my mom hadn't shown up yet) and the other one is me and mom!
OK, the ladies in the green aren't related, but we saw them in Menards. There were actually about 5 of them and they were all wearing matching sweaters and shoes for their shopping trip. We decided collectively that if we ever get that serious about our shopping that an intervention will need to be done ;)
