This book has been lying around at work for months. Yesterday I needed to watch one of our guys who has been having major behavioral problems. I picked up a book that has been on the table - Good Grief - by Molly WInston. Ok, I am less then 1/2 way done with it and it is a great book, about a 36 year old woman whose husband dies after 3 years of marriage from Cancer. I thought it would be depressing, but it is so real but in many ways so funny. As the main character in the book talks about lap top computers and working from home but wants to know what good is technology if you can't talk to your dead husband. Anyone read this book? Can you recommend others?? Ihave been reading James Patterson almost exclusively for a year and need a change.

I only manage to get any reading done in the summer, when I am down to one job. I believe our library has this book, and I will have to be sure to put it on my reading list. It sounds good, and I believe I could relate to it. Where do you work?

My second job is in a residential program. My clients are very high functioning, and basically without major behaviors.Our agency does have clients with behaviors, though. I do not work any shift past 8:00 pm. unless it is for an activity. I got more reading done this summer when I could take them to the library and such on a regular basis. We are in the sports seasons right now, Special Olympics and everything else seems to be taking a back seat.

I'll have to check that out. Maybe my aunt would enjoy it while she recovers from colon cancer.

Oh yeah, I was thinking about her husband was already deceased, so that wouldn't make her sad, but gee, I think I should give her a chance to go through the chemo before handing it to her. Thanks for cluing me in. : )
