First I would like to say a sincere thank you to everyone who has inquired about my recovery. I am doing very well and I am pretty much back to normal. In fact, I was even able to bake two sets of cupcakes with only a little assistance from my husband. He went back to work yesterday and I am getting back into the groove of things around here.
While I was recovering I had a lot of time to read. This was amazing because I have a huge pile of books to be read and I actually finished two of them and a few magazines. If you like to read, I highly recommend one of my new favorite websites, Paperback Swap.
This is free and anyone can join. You simply list the books you would like to trade. Then you find other books listed that you would like to read. You pay to ship any of your books that someone wants, but yours get shipped to you for free. If you do Media mail it's only a couple of dollars. They also have hardcover books and audio books. My favorite feature is that you can add money to your account so you can print postage directly off the site on your home printer. Just drop it in your mailbox and you are good to go! I really am addicted to it!
I have also had the time to get back into my local mommies group. The Mommies Network is a free mom's group. They have a chapter in most cities around the nation. Each local group has its own website with an online forum. They also have a calendar of events with play dates and fun things to do. If you are a mom and looking for some new friends (either for you or your kids) The Mommies Network is a wonderful place to go! They are also a great source of information and support.
I hope you guys have a great weekend. Things will be pretty normal around here: grocery shopping, church and visiting my father-in-law. I am glad to be getting back into my normal routine! If you get a chance, check out these blog hops I am participating in today.
