She had been fighting osteosarcoma for about six months, but the cancer had spread to her lungs and her stomach. She was a trooper. I'm just happy she's no longer hurting. It was one of the hardest things I've ever had to go through and I'll miss her every day.
Between losing her and having the next 4-5 days slated for nothing but rain, it was a good time to take comfort in a book. I settled in and did nothing yesterday but read and play on my iPad. The plan is more or less the same for today and tomorrow, though we will actually have to leave the house for a while for family things.
We have a niece's dance recital this evening (our third such recital in two weeks -- that's what happens when you have a handful of nieces and only one nephew) and then my brother and his wife will be here from Ohio to visit, so we'll be doing a big family dinner tomorrow night. We only see them once or twice a year so I'm excited to hang out with them.
Other than that, it's all reading. Here's where I'm at this morning:

I've almost met my page and minute goals and I might actually finish this book today. It's soooo long, but soooo good. (I had to make sure my number of "o"s matched there.) I'm pretty happy with my BoB progress so far.
Now...I'm off to the Bout of Books Twitter Chat!!
