Hi Ladies,

For those of us that Daylight Savings Time apply to:

Spring Ahead tomorrow night!

Which I hate because it totally messes up my sleep which is already messed up with getting up in the middle of the night and sometimes not being able to fall back to sleep.

No big plans this weekend. My bil and sil are coming over tomorrow (depends on our crazy weather) and Sunday I'm going to relax and catch up on TV shows that I recorded.

Another slow week of reading (dang you Candy Crush). I read the new Tawny Weber Blaze -- A SEAL's Kiss - an enjoyable read and at 4 this morning I finished the new Bella Andre book -- Just To Be With You....gotta love the Sullivans! Up nex??????? Maybe the new Emma Lang or Julia London book.

Any plans this weekend? What are you reading?

Have a good weekend everyone!

I'm reading The Vampire With The Dragon Tattoo by Kerrelyn Sparks.

I went to my gym yesterday to workout with my trainer and then I went to water aerobics two hours later. I'm sore!! Due to the weather I was stuck in my house from Sunday to yesterday.

The snow and ice are slowly melting as the temps rise but it's still treacherous to walk many places. The community college where I teach has actually been closed this week due to the hazardous conditions in the parking lots.

Danielle, thanks for the time change reminder. I personally wish we would get a time and stick to it, I don't like the twice-a-year changes! What I'm really forward to is Spring.

I'm reading Hunted by Karen Robards. It's billed as a "thriller" and I'm wondering at this point how it can end successfully with a HEA for the characters. Several scenarios come to mind so I'll look forward to completing the book. Surely it won't end horribly.

Hope all of you have a wonderful weekend!

Dani

I hate losing an hour when we "spring forward" I feel like a zombie for several days afterward.

Ameliad - Let us know what you think of the Kerrelyn Sparks book. I have it in my TBR pile and will be reading it soon.

I woke up in the middle of the night and couldn't sleep, so I finished To the Brink by Cindy Gerard. It has several of my favorite themes: kidnapping, a dangerous trek through the jungle, reunited lovers, and a budding secondary romance. I'm hoping to get to the next book in the series soon.

Now I'm starting Lord of Darkness by Elizabeth Hoyt. I'm loving the Maiden Lane series.

Happy weekend! I am really looking forward to this weekend. This will sound crazy but...my house is a total disaster area. We've just let it go crazy. So Saturday, after I go to Aftercare, I plan to clean like a mad woman.

I haven't been reading much. I've been more watching TV and stuff like that this week. I haven't worked out...NOTHING!!! Partly because there are big changes about to happen in my life and I've been doing a lot of thinking and praying and talking with Chuck about them. I'm leaving my current job, the one where I've worked with my mom for the last 7 years. I'm going in a new direction, shaking things up. I'm going to work for a bank as a junior loan officer. I'll still be able to work at home 2 or so days a week, but I'll have to go to the office at least 2 days a week. So I'll be out of the house some but the office is pretty far. Yesterday I went to be fingerprinted and drug tested and I'm waiting for my boss to call me. I'm not resigning today but I'm going to tell her today since my loan officers need to know and start planning where their files for April and beyond are going.

I did spend some time this morning looking at what is coming in the next few months and buying some new books. I feel like once I get my house in order (literally and figuratively), I'll feel like reading again.

Everyone have a wonderful weekend.

I'm embarrassed to admit I got up early this morning to take the big puppy out, dyed my hair then fell asleep again until almost noon! The aftermath of the move I guess!
This weekend I will be out with my shopping list picking up storage/decorative boxes hopefully to finish unpacking and slotting things onto shelves. (Thanks for the suggestions on the general message board ladies).Then maybe life will get back to normal.
I'm currently reading Undeniable Rogue by Annette Blair.

Saturday is my youngest son's birthday so he feels like he's getting screwed out of an hour of his birthday. He wants to go to a restaurant called Taste of Belgium and get chicken and waffles! That sounds disgusting but evidently it's pretty good.

I'm reading Fear for Me by Cynthia Eden. So far so good but I'm not very far. I discovered this author last year through the Kindle Lending Library and really enjoy her style.

Kyle, I have to clean also. My house was in good shape after I cleaned it last weekend but for some reason or another it keeps re-cluttering very fast. Not to mention that my long-haired cat is full of knots and keeps chewing them off. I'm going to shave her by the end of the month (I do this every year). Even if I brush her she still knots up. Enough complaining -- have a great weekend everyone.

I had a colonoscopy yesterday. Everything went great. I am glad I don't have to do that for another 10 yrs. I slept mostly all of Friday. Last night, my sister gave me The White Queen dvd and I watched most of it. I haven't been reading anything this weekend. I am going to start cleaning my nasty house on Monday...I have put it off and it looks like a hoarder's house :lol:

Kyle---That is great that you are moving in another direction with your job. Great things will happen!

Kyle, good luck in changing jobs. Remember how long and hard I had to think about going into this new job of mine. Now, I can't imagine doing anything else. It is hard to change, but look at all the wonderful changes you have made for yourself already! The love of running and just going and exercising and having so much fun. I have found from the years here... you are one strong woman and when you set your mind to do something... you forge ahead and do it. I admire that in you! Change can be hard but sometimes it energizes you!


Yesterday a friend of mine called and asked if I wanted to go to the casino and have lunch. I knew she wanted to go and won't go by herself so I said yes. I had $25 squirreled away for bingo and really hated the thoughts of spending it at the casino. I love the restuarants there but sometimes hate the crowd. So, we sit down at these machines. I put $5 in and it was a penny machine with a min bet of 30 cents. The second 30 cents in, this screen randomly pops down and you have to pick from these baskets and I picked 3 rubies. I won the jackpot!! It was $1100!!!!! It was so exciting and then I felt bad because I really hadn't wanted to go!! But I got over that. All I could think of was, here is some of the money I needed to pay on my income tax (first time ever, I needed to pay the government.)

I am still reading my book that I started last week the Jodi Thomas one. It was really busy at work and I was tired by the time I got home and was sick one day in the middle (had to leave early) something went through the place and made 3 of us sick. It wasn't the lunch because it hit me about 10:30.
It was just a one day thing. I think working with seniors is like working with kids... they catch a lot of colds and bugs that get passed around fast.

Hope you all have a great weekend and happy reading.

Paulette, thank you for your wonderful words! I appreciate them.

And WOW :shock: - congrats on your winnings! That's awesome!

And thank you all to everyone else - I'm excited and I know it's real now. I haven't put in my "official" notice, but I told my boss yesterday that I was leaving and the 28th would be my last day. She was sad but completely understood my feelings about being burned out and needing to go in a new direction.

Reading On What Grounds by Cleo Coyle. Loving it.

Bought a coffee maker and am planning on trying out all kinds of recipes. Trying to convert my non-coffee drinking husband. He liked the first recipe. Going camping in RV for a couple of days.

Having a hard time reading this weekend. I took my oldest grandchild for the pre-surgery visit on Friday (over 4 hours). He is scheduled for a trans vaginal hysterectomy on March 18th; the first step in his change and it has been weighing on my mind.

Not because I disagree with the surgery, because I don't, but because of the lack of support from the maternal side. This is something his mother should have done with him not his paternal grandmother and paternal aunt.
