I'm Baaaack!

Yay! I know that sounds weird to be happy about being back from vacation, but visiting family is always tiring. Especially when it's your in-laws. Don't get me wrong, I actually really like the husband's parents a lot. His grandmother is whole other ball o' wax however. She's 82 and very feisty! In some ways I'd like to be like her at that age. She lives on her own, she is very active, she goes to lots of movies and really knows her current events. Unfortunately she doesn't think I'm good enough for her precious grandson. First of all I'm not Jewish, which she says she's okay with, but she isn't. I'm never quite good enough. She has this way of saying things to you that leaves you a little confused. Is she complimenting you or is she insulting you? It can actually be hard to tell sometimes. She basically does not think before she speaks. She's kinda missing the "tact" gene. My daughter had a blast, though, on the beach! I'll post some pics tomorrow. She just loves building sandcastles with her Dad and her uncle.
Anyways, I'm just happy to be back. I'm ready to go back to work. I miss the bookstore when I'm gone. Unfortunately, my 88 year old grandmother is dying and we have been told it will be any time now. So, I will probably have to head out in a couple of days for her funeral. We were never close, but she is still my grandmother and I love her.
I look forward to catching up on everyone's blog. I actually kept up with some of my favorites on Gary's computer, but I read a lot of blogs so I have a lot to still read.

Here's a quiz that I found today. I don't exactly agree with all of it, but basically it confirmed what I already knew.

You Are 20% Left Brained, 80% Right Brained

The left side of your brain controls verbal ability, attention to detail, and reasoning.
Left brained people are good at communication and persuading others.
If you're left brained, you are likely good at math and logic.
Your left brain prefers dogs, reading, and quiet.

The right side of your brain is all about creativity and flexibility.
Daring and intuitive, right brained people see the world in their unique way.
If you're right brained, you likely have a talent for creative writing and art.
Your right brain prefers day dreaming, philosophy, and sports.
