Hi Everyone!

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers!

Enjoy your weekend!

Another busy weekend for me, Saturday I'm playing cards with my friend and on Sunday hubby and I will finish up putting the house back together. I'm so glad that the remodeling is finally done and everything is done.

Didn't read a lot this week -- loved the new Kat Martin book -- Against the Edge! And Deep Diclosure by Dee -- I'm really enjoying this series. I'm currently reading the new book by Jo Davi -- Sworn To Protect.

Any weekend plans? What are you reading?

Happy Mother's Day to all you mom's out there...both the two legged and four legged variety.

After what have been 2 weeks of utter turmoil in our house, things "seem" to be settling down again. I'm trying to get back into my own routine again with work, working out and reading. My son is back home after staying for a week with my parents (and telling us he wasn't coming back...then said he DID want to... :roll: ). I'm in therapy, my YOUNGER son is now in therapy. My older son refuses to go right now but I am hoping at some point he will with me, just so we can work on how we speak to each other.

I started back reading The Disaster Diaries: How I Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love the Apocalypse. It's very interesting but has convinced me if the world ends, I'm dead meat because I can't shoot, can't drive a car like a stunt man, and don't know how to survive. My boys do...maybe they'll protect me. 8)

Anyway, I'm thinking about putting it aside and reading something else though for the weekend. Maybe Lori Foster's new one, Bare it All. I need a light weekend read.

I also got a new book that another parent recommended to me, called Get Out of My Life, but First Could You Drive Me & Cheryl to the Mall: A Parent's Guide to the New Teenager, Revised and Updated. He said it was very good and when I read a small excerpt from it, it really seemed to resonate with me. I will probably start that as well, and read a little bit every day.

Not much else in plans...Robert is going to the prom tonight and then will be out of town for the weekend with his prom group at a friends lake house. It'll be quiet around my house for sure.

Have a great weekend girls!

Ameliad,

I love that whole series and have them on my Kindle.

I am rereading Annis Ward Jackson's cozies about mountain living.The books are about Rachel Myers who moves back home to the Appalachian mountains and Jackson is very descriptive in her writing.

Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there. Hope you get some recognition this weekend of all you do.

I am reading Nora Roberts-Hidden Star and love it. I have the second in the trilogy and will reserve the third at my new library which is two blocks away from my house now.
I went there yesterday and sopke to the children's librarian and the clerk at the checkout desk- very nice. It's much smaller than the one I used to go to but it's good and the reserve system is great.
I am also reading a Shirley Hailstock series romance Love on Call and that's great too. Plus my traveling book- in my purse- in Marion Lennox's harl.rom with a circus setting.
I have also started doing crossword puzzles again to keep my brain functioning.

I'm almost finished with Close your Eyes by Iris and Roy Johansen. It's excellent and as far as I know the first book about Kendra Michaels. After that I have Whiskey Beach by Nora Roberts ready to read.

I'm hoping to get to the Appalachian Festival here in Cincinnati. Lots of Bluegrass music and crafts. I'm hoping to buy a dulcimer -- that's going to be something I try to save my aging brain. My sister says you need to learn something new as you get older so that's what I picked. I figure if I can't do it, I'll hang it on the wall because they are nice looking instruments LOL.

My youngest son gave me a bouquet of tulips yesterday in preparation for Mother's Day. Accompanying it were a bag of blowpops and a card that says congratulations and plays the Star Wars theme LOL (he said they were out of Mother's Day cards but I kind of like this one better anyway!) The blowpops are sort of a joke because we usually split them -- he eats all those nasty sour apples ones plus the grape. I eat the cherry and strawberry. We split the watermelon because neither of us really like it.

Happy Mother's Day for all of you out there even if your children have fur! That counts!

I am still working on Chances Are by Christy Reece. It's really good, I just haven't had a lot of time to read this week. I started training for my new job yesterday, and should be done with that by the end of the month, and then on to my on call hours. I was thrilled when a friend called me about this position, and the very part time hours - 6-8-shifts per month. I had not planned to return to work, but with these hours and such a great place to work, I am glad I had this opportunity. Plus most of my new co-workers are book lovers!

Kyle, I am happy for you that things are starting to return to some form of normal. Once your kids are over the age of 10, I'm not really sure what normal is - but you strive for peacefulness, respect and if that happens life is usually good.

Looks like a nice weekend in store for us. We need it after our big snow a week ago. That was just downright depressing!

Happy Mother's day to you all!

Hi everyone. It is raining like crazy out. Soooo, I am inside playing on my computer, watching Cold Case, and in a couple of minutes I am going to get to reading Wanna Get Lucky by Debra Coonts. It is about Vegas and I am laughing at some of Coonts descriptions and loving the sarcasm of the heroine Lucky.
I am also reading some books for a thing I volunteered to judge. So, I am back to reading 2 books at once.

No big plans for the weekend and I like it like that... I will have a harder week next week... I am working 4 days and I am used to just the 3... but, I will survive as usual.

Hope everyone has a great weekend and happy reading.

We've had so much rain in Kentucky that some places are under flood warning.

Almost finished with my garden. I am going to be cleaning out our patio and porches. We are giving a huge graduation/birthday party for both my sons. The oldest is graduating from college next week, and my youngest just had his 21st birthday this past week.

Kyle---just hang in there with your son. Work through it. I pray for God to give you guidance, comfort and patience.
It's just plain tough, but good that you are seeking counseling.

I don't know if I will get much reading done. I started Anne Stuart's Tangled Lies, and not really getting into it..and I really love Anne Stuart's books.

The weather is beautiful today and for tomorrow for Mother's Day. I will be going to lunch with my mother. I am making stepping stones for my garden....3 of them...one for each son and then hubby. I want them to put their handprints in them, sign them, and I will add a few mementos..shotgun shells, toy pistols, baseballs, etc.

Happy and Safe Mother's Day to all.

Down in the dumps. My fourth failed attempt to see my dying grandmother. I have seen my gparents once since she got sick but wanted more.

I'm sick and couldn't make the 5 hour one way trip. Got sick anotjer time and the other two times my mother botched those trips with lies and manipulation.

Reading Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry. Got good reviews.

God bless.
