Thank you so much for the poetry inspired gifts! I love all of it! You‘re very thoughtful and kind.

Avanders Hiya lady! Just checking in to see if you received your #sss package ... it should have arrived sometime this week! 11mo
Joy0201 @Avanders hello! I haven‘t been home this week because of the holiday. I‘m heading home tomorrow and will check and let you know. Thank you! 11mo
Avanders @Joy0201 oooooh ok cool! ☺️ Happy Thanksgiving!! 🦃🍽 11mo
teebe Hi! Hope all is well. I sent you an email a few days ago, have you received it? 10mo
dgingo @Joy0201 I‘m so so sorry to learn that your Jolabokaflod swap didn‘t arrive—I feel terrible! I sent it priority mail and it was supposed to arrive in plenty of time/early and I tracked it to make sure it arrived and apparently it is delayed. Who knew from DFW to Houston, it would take so long! I am so so sorry, but I promise I sent it. I hope you had a book to cozy up to and I‘m so sorry your package didn‘t arrive. 10mo

I have a 15 year old daughter who is so difficult. She causes so much stress and anxiety with me and her brother, who is 17. Any suggestions on books to help deal with teens? Specifically teen girls? I‘m desperate. Here she is during one of her better moments. I love her so much but I‘m afraid she‘s really going to have issues with relationships in her future if I don‘t help her understand how to treat people.

hgrimes I don‘t have advice, but I hope she grows out of it soon and you can have some peace! Teens can be such brats. I‘m pretty sure I was one! Good luck. 13mo
MyBookSwapClub I'm sorry to read this and I do hope in time with love and compassion things will just be ok. I've read lots of self help and a big fan of those books (because I truly believe those books help us). Haven't read anything about teenage topic but I've heard might be the one you want to try. 13mo

TheBookKeepers Sending good vibes your way. I don‘t have any book recommendations but I do have a moms retreat recommendation! It‘s held in March in Orlando. I went this last year and it‘s amazing! For moms who have troublesome kids. Www.momsfindhealing.com 💚 March is a far way out but I always share it with other struggling moms bc it helped me so much!!! 13mo
TheBookKeepers Visit their Facebook page (link in website) they keep it way more updated than the website 13mo

Joy0201 @MyBookSwapClub I‘ll check that out. Thank you! 13mo
Joy0201 @MyBookSwapClub I remember reading this when I was younger! 13mo
Joy0201 @TheBookKeepers she has ALWAYS been troublesome. Even as a baby. I never spanked my son. But I had to spank her. She would throw unbelievable fits. And now...well it‘s a whole new level. I will look in to that retreat. Thank you! 13mo
TheBookKeepers 💛 best of wishes! Sometimes it‘s nice to be around other moms with similar struggles and know you are not alone & you can survive this stage & *will* raise a lovely lady.... one way or another lol! If u happen to sign up for the retreat let me know bc I will definitely be there! 13mo
Joy0201 @TheBookKeepers ok thank you! I will! 13mo

Joy0201 @MiraMonroe For my family it was always a low key holiday. It never had the intensity of the other big holidays. We always had fun carving pumpkins and making costumes. My mom would always make tacos and corn and we would watch whatever horror movie we could find on tv. I always got to hand out candy too! 13mo

Haunting the Deep | Adriana Mather
Pickpick

Forgot to review this. I didn‘t like it as much as How to Hang a Witch. Mainly because I didn‘t get WHY the bad guy(s) is/was doing what they were. I do love Samantha and Alice and Elijah and Jaxon. I love that little imaginary world in Salem. Looks like the author is beginning a boarding school series which I can get behind. Overall a pick, but not as good as the first. If you like the Titanic you probably will love this.
