Okay, so a couple of these (literally two) I still plan to finish, I just haven't yet.  And a *ton* of these I own and have every intention of reading, I just haven't gotten around to it yet!  But I will, one day...

Nothing terribly exiting going on in my life.  Tommy started his new job on Monday; not much to say about it yet except the hours are really long.  I'm going through a lot of stuff in therapy right now.  Which means my emotions are kind of a mess, but it also means I'm making progress and I'm going to be doing much better when I come out on the other side!

There are way too many of these that I never read for me to do this meme, but I am sorely tempted.

Just so I can tell everyone that I read the Count of Monte Cristo in French. Tres cool, n'est-ce pas?

I'm here if you need to talk too. (and don't forget to sign your name - or you could register and LJ name! - if you hadn't mentioned Matt, I'd have had no idea who was writing. :-) )
