God, I'd be exhausted too. I bought the French version of Anggun's album, and I'll make a copy for you to give you the next time we have coffee and chats if you'd like. Maybe it will cheer you up a bit in the face of all this troublesome news? /hug Much love to you.

Lots of stress and now visitors? Oye. I did enjoy the story of your co-worker. How could anyone not know that slang? Then again, a friend of mine (also religious) wanted to know what omfg meant....

Tracy

I think you should feel free to recommend an affordable hotel, honestly.

Funny about the, ummm, choice of words, though! I'd be willing to bet all 3 of our pastors know what that means, which makes me wonder, under what sort of rock is he living?

Karan

Tell the family to book a meeting room for the get together and tell them to keep the kids at home with a webcam so they can skype in...or better yet, let Mr Neil Young Stargazer skype in.

I'm reading every entry of yours and not commenting much, because I am aghast at the way life is bombarding you with problems right now and I can't think of anything appropriate to say. Just know that I am here reading, OK?

You don't have to host them! Seriously, tell them NO. Get them a hotel room -- everyone can pitch in. Tell SIL that she'll be hosting game night if there is to be one.

(That's the 2nd time my comment got lost in space!) I love your dad's comment. Don't let SIL tell you what to do in your own house. If you want to host a game night, great. If not, someone else can, right? You've got great reasons for not wanting a ton of people at your house, especially sniffly ones!

I have to admit I have never heard that term either. But I work in the stodgy old on-line banking business and have very little contact with high school students. I have no words about the apparently tone-deaf family members.

  • Marcia Muller: City of Whispers (Sharon Mccone Mysteries)

    Marcia Muller: City of Whispers (Sharon Mccone Mysteries)
    Not the best outing in this series (3 1/2 stars)---a far-fetched plot and overwrought writing at times. Still, a decent way to pass a Sunday full of hail/snow. (***)

  • Charles Todd: The Confession: An Inspector Ian Rutledge Mystery (Ian Rutledge Mysteries)

    Charles Todd: The Confession: An Inspector Ian Rutledge Mystery (Ian Rutledge Mysteries)
    I enjoy this series because I've learned a lot about WWI and shell shock. I didn't think this was the strongest in the series though. The plot was too convoluted and unrealistic. However, it was still a decent read. (****)

  • Robert Crais: Taken

    Robert Crais: Taken
    I consider any book with Elvis Cole and Joe Pike in it a page turner, but Elvis is no longer funny and Pike is taking over the series. However, the book was well plotted and very tense; I couldn't put it down in the last few chapters! (****)

  • Laini Taylor: Daughter of Smoke and Bone

    Laini Taylor: Daughter of Smoke and Bone
    Despite the low score of ***1/2, I did enjoy the book. It just got too melodramatic when it got into the romance part, which may be because it's a Young Adult book. (***)

  • Elizabeth George: Believing the Lie

    Elizabeth George: Believing the Lie
    I paid $0.45 to keep this book overdue to find out how in the world George would tie all these stories together. (she didn't) This was a disappointing and sometimes frustrating read with good potential. However, I still like Lynley and some of it was decent--just not most of it. (***)

  • Jonathan Safran Foer: Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (Movie Tie-In): A Novel

    Jonathan Safran Foer: Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (Movie Tie-In): A Novel
    I'm only giving it 4 stars because I had some trouble with the format, which was not at all standard. The book itself had me laughing and crying and feeling touched, then crying more, not necessarily from sadness. A beautiful story but hard to read at times. (****)

  • Kate Morton: The House at Riverton: A Novel

    Kate Morton: The House at Riverton: A Novel
    This book was absorbing with fascinating characters, good writing and a decent plot. I enjoyed it and intend to read more by this author! (****)

  • Sue Grafton: V is for Vengeance (Kinsey Millhone Mystery)

    Sue Grafton: V is for Vengeance (Kinsey Millhone Mystery)
    It started out slowly, but I ended up liking it a lot.The characters were fascinating.It wasn't my favorite book in the series though. (****)

  • Patrick Ness: The Knife of Never Letting Go: Chaos Walking: Book One

    Patrick Ness: The Knife of Never Letting Go: Chaos Walking: Book One
    A fascinating premise and a good read, although disturbing. It was more sci-fi and less fantasy than I expected. Now I'm reading the rest of the series. :) (****)

  • Jo Nesbo: The Leopard

    Jo Nesbo: The Leopard
    I'm not doing a very good job of keeping my sidebar updated with books; I'm mainly reading mysteries. Jo Nesbo is one of my new favorites, gruesome as his stories are. This book was great until the end. It kind of fell apart for me there. (****)
