Hi Everyone!

Can't believe it's almost the end of August.

We're back to playing pincochle once a month and we're playing at my house on Sunday! Husband and I are going out to lunch today and running some errands together. Tomorrow will be spent getting the house straighten out and buying the snacks and food for Sunday.

I had a good week with my reading.....I read two books by Lisa Eugne -- enjoyed them both. Duchess by Chance by Wendy Vella -- loved it and I'm currently reading In The Arms of a Heiress by Maggie Robinson. I have no idea what I want to read next. Maybe a couple of oldies by Julie Garwood....Fire and Ice and Sizzle.

Any plans this weekend? What are you reading?

Enjoy your weekend!

I'm still reading The Last Kiss Goodbye by Karen Robards. It's good but I haven't had much time to read this week.

Hello all! Today marks one week since my grandmother passed and my husband checked into rehab. It's been a really difficult week for me to get back into some kind of groove/schedule. I haven't worked out and I haven't been to Weight Watchers (much less tracked anything!) in a couple of weeks, and I haven't picked up a book in well over a week either.

I fully intend to rectify this and get back to a more normal schedule starting this weekend. I'm going to work out this weekend and I think I'm going to start a book tonight.

I'm thinking about starting Maya Banks' Breathless Trilogy with Rush.

Sunday I was going to go to the Texans/Saints preseason game but it's right in the middle of visiting hours at the recovery center and so I'm skipping it to spend the day with my husband.

School starts Monday and I think the kids getting back to school and a normal schedule will help immensely. I'm also going to try to find an Al-Anon meeting close to me and attend a meeting.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

No real plans here for the weekend. Dad is shaking off the effects of the anti-biotics from the virus the other week and having a bit of a rough go. I finally finished the Brenda Joyce book (once things got rolling story wise, I couldn't put it down). Currently I'm reading Lynn Viehl's Her Ladyship's Curse.

No big plans for the weekend, other than a much needed massage tomorrow, and our yearly cul-de-sac picnic on Sunday. Hope to get in some reading and knitting in between. Now that dad is kind of on a schedule at his new assisted living home, I am trying to limit my trips to two a week. Not that will always be the case, but it's my goal! The final auction was Tuesday, the apartment cleaned, keys turned in, one more chapter behind us. Not sure where the summer of 2013 went, but I can honestly say I am glad it is in my rear view window!

I finished Homecoming Ranch by Julia London, a great read, and am now on to Three Little Words by Susan Mallery. A trip back to Fool's Gold is always a good one, and one of my favorite on going series.

Kyle, I hope each day gets a little better for you. My only advice at this point, live each day one day at a time. That's been my mantra since our lives were changed by chemical dependency in 2004. When things happen like they have this summer with my dad, it's much easier to have no expectations, and when something good happens, it makes it that much better! When the going gets tough, I never know how my son will really react, and so far he's been great with my dad. But I would be lying if I thought that would last through the duration of what lies in front of us. :? I always have hope, and sometimes we get the best and sometimes not.

Everyone have a great weekend! I can feel fall in the cooler evening temperatures here in the Midwest. Not sure if that is good or bad!!

Well, I'm being lazy today. I'm working but...I'm taking reading breaks frequently.

Kids are gone at football and work, and I'm enjoying the quiet.

I actually started reading The Seduction of Phaeton Black by Jillian Stone. It's a steampunk type paranormal and it's maybe the silliest thing I've read in a while. The writing reminds me a lot of old Connie Mason. The hero doesn't seem to be the sharpest tool in the shed, but that doesn't matter since he's got the BIGGEST TOOL in the SHED to make up for it. 8)

There are two more books in this little series so I think I'll read them all. God knows I need a little silliness.

Hi everyone!

I just got the call from the boss at work telling me I got the position I interviewed for a couple of weeks ago. I am so psyched..... and scared, too. Everyone has so much confidence in me that I can do it.... I guess I am scared starting another phase of my life at 67. I will be in charge of the senior center and will plan a daily meal... work with them playing with the Wi..they do bowling and golf, plan trips, run book club and a plethora of other things that I will have to learn. They want me to keep on at the gym opening up on my mornings until they get someone to take my place. I will gladly help the new guy because I will be the 2nd steady person he will have lost. A bit overwhelming for him, I think.So I will be working my old job and starting a new one at the same time. Lord, help me!

I am in the middle of Defending Jacob and am saying it is really excellent so far. I have book club tomorrow and I plan on finishing it tonight. I have Julie Garwood's new one from the library which I will read after that.

Kyle, a close friend of mine went to al-anon and it helped her immensely. (Her and her husband used to go on vacation....he would pack a couple of bottles of Jack Daniels, and never leave the room... she went to beach and dinner by herself.) I just admired her so much for her courage and strength to do so many things by herself. She said shel learned how to cope from her al-anon meetings. I am sure after re-hab your husband will be in a much better place... then he can boost his self esteem by getting a nice new job.
You and the whole family will be in my prayers.

Have a great weekend and happy reading.

I am reading 'InSight' by Polly Iyer on my Kindle, a freebie by a new-to-me author. It is RS (of course!) with an intriguing storyline--h is a blind psychologist who gets involved with her deaf detective patient (only after she recuses herself, though). It is well-written and edited, with only a few glitches here and there. All in all, a very good read so far.

Hubby and I went to see my son in college. He is working and just started his senior yr in college. He is building houses and working for an engineering firm and going to classes. We had lots of fun seeing all he is doing. It was a quick trip. Last night we went to an outdoor concert in an owl sanctuary with a couple of friends. We had a great time. Today, I need to get going on weeding my walkway and around our pool---just too lazy...all I want to do is get in the pool and read.

ameliad----I am reading The Last Victim by Karen Robards first before I tackle The Last Kiss. I really love it. I don't want to put it down. Thanks for getting me hooked on this book.

Paulette---that is great news...I know you are excited!

Kyle----I am glad this past week is behind you. I think things will fall into place once you establish a routine. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Late to the party once again..nothing new there! :mrgreen:

By the sounds of everyones news, looks like the energy of the world is changing, here's hoping a little comes my way.

Congrats to news jobs, steps forwards with loved ones and just sending a all over happy vibe to all.

Spring is coming!!! YAY!

I am currently addicted, and I mean ADDICTED to Game of Thrones, I have never yelled or laughed or talked out loud while watching a TV program ever..... Tyrion & Bronn love them! :mrgreen:

Reading wise finished Vipers Run and now reading Legal Heat, was slumping there for a bit, but getting my flow back. I think it's because the weather is coming to my favorite season SPRING, I love Spring... and it's two months till i have a HOLIDAY!!!!!

****MMMMMMMM-Wah!!!*****

NO I haven't been drinking! :lol: :lol:
