Have you ever read a book or books you would consider ‘toxic’ because of the effect it(they) had on you? If so, which 
Horrorstör by Grady Hendrix. I couldn’t get it out of my head and for a while, everytime I went to IKEA, I was expecting something to jump out at me or be standing down the aisle somewhere. Still, it was one of the best books I read that year.

1. My idea of roughing it is having no electricity. I’m addicted to having a ceiling fan or other fan on, as well as the tv. I can be sound asleep and if the electricity goes out I immediately wake up. Plus, I don’t like not being able to get on my laptop.

2. I never get sick of talking about my cats and dog. They are a big part of my life and keep me entertained every day.

3. My youth was amazing! I had the best parents, and they always made sure I was having fun. Roller skating, ice skating, camping, swimming, Girl Scouts, going to the movie theater, concerts, musicals. We also had a camper that we used in the summer on weekends, and we lived at a lake so I could fish off our dock or go out in the boat. I had older sisters who were married with children, so family get together’s were always fun. I miss those days.

4. My “golden years” are creeping up way faster than I want them too. But I am looking forward to them.
