Review: Just One Last Night

Just One Last Night
Just One Last Night by Helen Brooks
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was heartbroken through-out the story.
She fell down the stairs and lost a child, and blamed herself. She told herself that she would be a terrible mother and left her husband, who loved her and never blamed her.
I love that he did everything he could to bring her back.
The surprise pregnancy wasn’t much of a surprise but it is a blessing in disguise.
It was a fast read, but a beautiful one!

I Will Admit to Crying

You got wet, I’m sad to say.
You won’t start up now.
You were so loved, and I cried when I said goodbye.
I love you, and it breaks my heart that I have to replace you.
Kindle DX, you will always be my first ebook reader, forever on my mind.
I’m not happy that I have to replace you with the Kindle Fire, but I have to.
I’d rather have you still working though.

I wrote that on my writing blog. My heart hurts, SO much with the loss of the Kindle. It’s dead. So gone. πŸ™ I’m lucky that I have back-up things. I’m going to be using myΒ HTC Surround for my “Kindle” for now, until we can get the replacement, which will be the Kindle Fire, for sure. I’ve weighed the pros and cons, and the Fire wins out for everything. It’ll be useful more than aΒ Kindle Touch 3G or a Kindle Keyboard 3G.

I’m going to survive though. I cried, and I mean that quite literally. I cried. I bawled. My face got ugly. I ranted at Josh, I screamed at the kids (hey, they’re the ones who got the liquid IN my bag :'( I have since apologized to everyone, and they all seem to understand. It truly wasn’t anything against them, and it wasn’t even really the loss of the Kindle itself, it was what it symbolized. As I told Josh: Books are a piece of my soul. Each and every single one of them.

Just Don’t Have It In Me

I was going to blog about Showtime for Sims 3.
I was going to blog about my baking adventures.
No, I don’t feel like it now.
I just want to curl in a ball.
Cry.
Something.
I just found out my grandfather passed away. I found out the same way that I found out he had terminal cancer: Facebook.
I’m.
Just.
Blank.

I had planned to see him the last time we went to Indiana. I had wanted, so badly, to rebuild those bridges that had been broken when I moved away.
I won’t have that chance now. My children will never have a chance to know the amazing man that my grandfather was. No matter how insane his daughter was, he did right by me and my brother.
He never let us feel unloved. He always seemed to put us first.

He was an amazing man. He was an amazing grandfather.

He will be missed. He is most loved.

Mr. Loud

Mr. Amazing

Mr. Sid

May your suffering be at an end, and may those that loved you find the peace they need as well.

Also, give Kathy a big purr and Meow and tell her everyone here misses her like crazy.
