This Blog Has Moved!

I moved my blog on New Years Day, 2010. If you haven't come to see my new blog, head on over HERE now. This blog will be available for archive reading but I won't be posting here anymore. I hope you'll join me at my new bloggy home!

p.s. I am slowly but surely moving all the blogs I follow over to the new blog, so if I haven't come to visit you for a while, my advice is to leave a comment on my new blog, so I don't miss you in the shuffle!

About Me

My photo
I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...

Larry's Party - Carol Shields

The latest book I've accomplished is Larry's Party by Carol Shields. This is the story of Larry Weller, over the course of 20 years from 1977 to 1997.

With such chapter titles as Larry's Work, Larry's Friends, Larry's Kid, and, of course, Larry's Party, this book takes us through various aspects of Larry's life: his marriages, his career, and his sense of self.

For the most part, I found this book to be an interesting read. If nothing else, Larry shows us that we are all the same and that our thoughts and conceptions or misconceptions of self and the world around us are quite normal.

If you're looking for a good book to read, I suggest you pick up a copy of Larry's Party from your local library or bookstore.

Interesting! I read her book "The Stone Diaries," which sounds remarkably similar in the set-up except it is about a woman. You might want to check it out. .. I really enjoyed it. I'll have to read this one!
