I really hope today is the last day we have to do this. I have suffered through three days of torture at the hands of mosquitos, I’m like a freaking buffet to them. My feet hurt something fierce and I won’t even go into the rest of my body. For the most part we got all the big stuff and furniture out, now it’s just trash day I hope. Finished mother’s place yesterday now today is dad’s place. I’m not looking forward to doing his backyard and may even leave that to the kids because one: not my dogs and two: not feeling like stepping in dog shit. At least there won’t be any mosquitoes there to greet me, one can only hope.


Review of Last Family Standing


I got an advance copy from NetGalley for an honest review and I wound up giving it 4 stars. 

I really enjoyed reading this one, it kept me hooked from the first page. Monica is such a sweetheart and yet she’s fragile too. Not many people would see it but I do. She’s gets the shock of her life when she’s called over to her friends house and see’s on T.V. the daughter she gave away, searching for her. Naturally following a mother’s instincts Monica wants to see her child and accepts the invitation to go on reality T.V. and the adventure takes off from there.

This book have me laughing every other page. Monica’s emotions and reactions were so really I felt like I was standing right next to her instead of reading about her. I loved the chemistry between her and Rick. From the start I was rooting for Monica and Jessica to spend time together and hopefully stay in touch after and become apart of each other’s lives. I will admit that I felt bad for Monica, everytime you turn around she’s getting some bruise or other. She was like a pincushion. All in all it was a very fascinating and exciting read and I give a big thumbs up to the author.
