I'm so glad I got to sit by you at the mediocre dessert joint our last night in Kiawah. If not for that chance seating arrangement, I never would have discovered our shared interests: quoting movies ("I have many leather-bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany."), hot chocolate that's actually hot and chocolatey, 30 Rock, bananas (if it weren't for the nuts). Good times!
I have to kindly disagree with your poor review of crazy sexy cancer tips. Kris Carr is the person who has helped more than my oncologist and any one else on this planet to battle my cancer. I hope you reread it and take some time to have some compassion for those of us struggling with this monster.
hi shel7by, i am a full time wife and mom with 3kids, life is really tiring, doing the same thing everyday, but if u look at it on the other way life is fulfilling, when u see ur kids growing soo fast, once a baby now a young lady or a young man. wow, it makes u feel old.. lol, ul see u discover something from them, ul realize that being a mom is great job. wish u to be ur friend, looking forward to chat with u. regards to u and to ur family.
I'm so glad you liked The Thirteenth Tale as much as Melanie did. It's one of my all-time favorites! People either love or hate that one and I'm glad I'm not the only one I know that loved it. Thanks for your review of The Book Thief. I've been wanting to read that one for awhile now but one of my book club members said the language in it made it hard to get through. Did you have any issues with that? Maybe I'll give it a shot because I really did want to read that one.
I know, I know. Amy is an addiction-a contagious little thing she is. I have Brittany, so I won't make a move on her, I promise. I just can't believe what a beautifully small world this is after all. I remember the name Paul Kokerhans, how can you not. I'm having a hard time with the face though. I'm thinking of a tall guy with dark hair and an infectious smile-really happy-go-lucky? I think he worked in a different "region" then me (you can ask Amy for an explanation of that term). Anyway, is Amy back and how's her nephew? Can't believe you two swapped tragedies one after the other like that. Would y'all just simmer down now? Hope you're feeling better.
I am Brittany's friend/running partner. She has talked so much of you (all good things!), I feel like I know you! I saw that you recommended that she not read "Water for Elephants", and I was wondering why? The really unfortunate thing is, I listened to the hype and just bought it! I haven't read it yet. I was just curious...Love looking at your shelf.
Heard through the grapevine that you are undergoing a brave recovery..... I am sending you all of the sunbeam sunshine and happiness I can think of. I hope you continue to be blessed! *hug* and yes, it sounds to me like you should start writing your story.......
OK, Miss Shelby. I always thought to know Brittany, was to love you...'cause she's the bomb. But now I really know I love you 'cause you have Amy Cima in your life. I'm hyperventalating(sp?)! I happened to click on some comments on your celebration lunch blog, and there she was. There she was. Did I say that already? I am still in shock. She happens to be one of my all time favorite people you can meet in 33 years person. Hee. We worked together back at old school Covey in Utah and I lost her. I just lost her. And now because of your crazy cancer, I've found her. Will the madness, I mean goodnes ever end? I don't think so. Thank you for being cool enough to be Amy's pal. I'll have to get some info from you later. Oh Happy Days!!!
Are you reading, writing or illustrating anything interesting? (Is there time? Four kids by 31 is impressive!!).
I'm 34 and no babies so far but I take my first shot tomorrow at 7:00pm to prepare for IVF...so I hope, I hope, I hope!! (p.s. now you're stuck being friends with me too cause I told you about the IVF and cause I had to backdown shame-facedly from my Jane Eyre post ;)
