Reading Goals

First I was intrigued by all the women suggesting to read the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer. I borrowed the four books from a friend and had them all read before the movie came out last fall. I reread them after I received them as a gift at Christmas.

At the sametime I also received The House of Night Series by P.C. and Kristin Cast. I had them all read within a month and there were five, I hope to get the sixth one when it comes out next month.

Lately I've been reading Nora Roberts The Circle Trilogy starting with Morrigan's Cross. SO far I like it. I'm on chapter seventeen and would LIKE to finish it before the weekend.

Then I've been hearing a lot about True Blood and Sookie Stackhouse. I had just watched two of the first episodes and was very intrigued. So my mom gifted me with four for Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse novels NOT starting with the first. I will have to find it so that I may read it from start to finish.

Just last week I watched Vampire Diaries and learned that it too is a book series by L Jane Smith, she is now on my to read list on I liked the first episode of Vampire Diares, Elena almost reminds me of a younger version of Eva Longoria and another actress but I can't put my finger on it. It will drive me crazy until I have figured it out.

Anyway Jennifer of Rundpinne sent me an invite to Good Reads and I've found a lot of books that I would like to read just by reading other's reviews.  Quite fun.  Makes me want to read as I've never been one for reading not even the books the teachers wanted us to read in school.

WOOORAAAHHH!!! And Policy Info

Got Woopra back on my computer! Now if only I could get one review done a week that would be SUPERFLY! I miss blogging so much.  What I'm able to type is so spacey that I wish I had more time to spend on one subject in each post.

So for those that are looking for reviews from a mom with two boys ages 4 and almost 3 please don't hesitate to email me, caleenna at gmail dot com. I am able to check email mostly on the weekends so send it Friday and you will get a response by late Monday night.  Also from the time I receive the product or the time I receive confirmation of the review it will start the week of using the product, website or what have you.  Then on that last day I will compile on my notes and type up the review, it will sit for a day so that I may come back to it and reread it before posting.  I will also send you, the vendor, a link to the review so that you may do as you please with it.  I will have this posted on the PR page of my site as well so it will be in on spot at all times.

This will be my policy from now and until I can afford to have internet at my own home.  If you have any concerns or questions please email me at the above address.

In other news, my family has been sick the chills the aches you name it we are now starting to get over it but I just went to the doctor today and I have a slight case of bronchitis. Icky stuff I tell you.  The boys though seem to be doing alright and I'm sure they won't get worse.

Gotta go home and call the parents of the child that I babysit and let them know that I now have antibiotics to help me get better.

Enjoy you Monday Night.

Wordless Wednesday 9.9

The New Look and More...

Look look... I have a page on Facebook now, you can either see it here or click on the fan button on my badge over there on the right side.  There is also a badge for my husband's page that I created for him.  I will be posting pictures and videos of live demonstrations that he does of his artwork.  So keep a look out for updates.

More that has gone on this week. Tuesday was the first MOPS meeting of the school year.  I had a wonderful time chilling out and learning a few things about our leaders.  Next meeting, if I'm able to go that is, every member will have their own Me Box with stuff that they enjoy with their family and self.  I've already decorated mine and placed a few things in it.

I've also undergone a blog makeover that I totally love and will enjoy for months to come!  All Thanks to Caitlin of MommyGeekology and Toni of A Daily Dose, who referred me to Caitlin.  I gave her ideas for the header and a few iStock photos to go off of.  What she created was AWESOME!  I've always liked the images in headers of the moms and kids, so I had to go with that idea.  Then I just told her something purple and to throw in some accent colors for the columns.  I absolutely love what she's done with the customizations.  Caitlin was a joy to work with even though I wasn't online every second of the day.

Yesterday we took the boys to the zoo and had a blast.  We were there for five hours!! Took lots of pictures, saw a baby elephant too.  The boys enjoyed themselves and slept on the way home.

Today we hung out over at my mother in-laws house for awhile recieved an MP3 player from her for my birthday and ate lasagna for dinner.  My parents came over to our place, I recieved four Sookie Stackhouse Novels by Charlaine Harris, a Katy Perry cd, a shirt and bed sheets!  I'm so wondering what Chris bought me.. LOL I'm excited to see it.  Then last but not least my brother, I hope he calls before he shows up at the house.  I just might be in the tub enjoying some quiet time tomorrow. 

Babysitting is going well, even though I'm only watching one child again.  I just pray to GOD that I get to keep watching her soon.  Her daddy is looking for a job.  James enjoys Punky's, the eleventh month old that comes to the house at 6:30 in the morning, time with us.  This whole weekend he has been asking, "Where's Baby?" I tell him that she is at home with her mommy and daddy.  She turns one tomorrow!  I thought that was really cool.

I've also been reading.  Last year I read the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer before the movie came out then I read the House of Night series by P.C. and Kristin Cast.  Now I started readin Morrigan's Cross by Nora Roberts, that one is a bit of a reach for me but I will keep at it because it's witches, wolves, vampires, warlocks and more.  Just something about paranormal and fantasy that has really been intriguing.   My mom has gifted me with four of Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse novels.  I don't have the first one so I will be reading those after I'm done with Morrigan's Cross.

Wordless Wednesday 9.2

This little guy, I call Squirt will be three in just over a month.  Time sure does fly.  It amazes me how much he knows and how much better he has gotten with just observing his big brother.  Happy Wordless Wednesday.  Enjoy your day.
