My new purchase and book number 35, The Second Wives Club by Jane Moore


Isn't she looooooooooooovely? Isn't she wonnnnnnnnnnnnderrrrrrful? Isn't she preeeeeeeeeeeecious? I was in the big red bullseye today and saw this lovely piece of former cow and had to have it. I tried to take a picture of the price tag as well, but it kept coming out blurry. It was the best thing about my purchase - $24.99, bitches. Seriously, I'm ok with people spending a crazy amount on purses if they have the financial means to do so. I happen to be someone who can't do that and still have electricity and food, so when I find a really great looking, quality bag for such a fantastic price, I use it as cause to celebrate. I think I might have skipped through the store for the rest of my visit.

On to the review. I loved this book. I need a second wives club of my very own. There were 4 members, Allison, Julia, Fiona, and Susan. Each of them had their own separate set of circumstances and problems with their pansy assed husbands, ingrateful stepchildren, and heinously awful first wives. The great thing is that they have each other and regularly meet in order to vent because let's face it, the husbands don't want to hear it and sure as shit around going to do anything about it, so if they did not have this venting forum, these women would be atop Big Ben with an AK-47 with lightning speed. Trust me, I know whereof I speak. Being a second wife (especially when there are children involved) is not something for the faint of heart.

My week of training went well. I managed to get the whole house clean on Friday leaving the rest of my weekend for me to enjoy. Saturday I got up and ran a couple of errands after the hubs left for work. I went to get an oil change/car wash for the low low price of $59.95. Apparently, it was screw the stupid women week with no Astroglide and I was first in line. I just figured fuck it and went about my day. I ran the mother to Walmart and then came home to fit in Disk 2 of Season 3 of the Gilmore Girls before going to dinner with my friend Victoria. She and I used to work at The Firm together and I am glad we have kept in touch since my blessed departure. She recently married in Venezuela and was currently sans hubs and child as they are on vaca together so it was a perfect time for a little girl talk over margaritas. I got home and the hubs was off work so we watched the classic, Cheaters. He ended up getting called out in the middle of the night for a non-existant hostage situation (I shit you not). Apparently the snipers (again, not kidding) needed the ladder to get on top of Wendy's and the lights so that if said hostage taker came out of the Texaco, they could shoot him properly. Turned out to be nothing and the dude was not even in there, but still....having my hubs almost have to go to a hostage situation made me stay awake for like at least 5 minutes before rolling back over and snoozing right back off. Today, of course, I had lunch with my girl, Karen, at our past haunt, Houstons. Food was fabulous as always. Then I stopped up at Tarjay to find the aforementioned wonderful deep red handbag. Now I am home relaxing with Disk 3 of Season 3 of the GG's. I may go take a dip later with my new floaties that the hubs bought me because I whined just that much about my lack of floaties. Nothing works like whining and bitching. I think I should give a class.

Tomorrow is back to work. I have super high hopes for this job and think that I may have found my perfect fit. I almost hate to say that because I am sure I just put some major bad mojo on myself and the bad vibes will surely come to me, but I shall throw caution to the wind and forcefully declare that I am going to like this job. There. I said it. Damn gris gris.

I'm glad you're loving your job :) That makes one of us, and that will do for now.

I love going to Marshalls and finding one of those expensive bags with a big red tag on it. I got one for $25 that had been $140 in it's previous life.

I start a new job today I hope I like mine as much as you like yours.

I almost bought that same bag this weekend no kidding - now I am thinking I need to hurry my ass up and go get it!

LOVE Tarjay - and not just because I get a discount cause hubby works at headquarters.....but at times I hate them too - cause they are the reason I am in Minnefreakinsota...LOL

Love the bag. Too bad I've banned myself from large bags though. I tend to load them down and then wonder why my back hurts when I carry my purse.

I read a survey once that said that people who work from home or have the option of working from home on occasion are much happier with their job than the schlubs (like me) who have to go in an office every day.

I love the bag too! I heart a great deal. I must get to Target this week! I have read taht book and I loved it.

The bag is FABULOUS!!! There's nothing like a red handbag to break you out of your handbag shell...or maybe that was just me.

The Texaco-almost-hostage-situation would be funny if it weren't so scary to think about what would have happened if the dude was still in there...

gris, gris...you ARE from NO!!!

Dang girl, you are a reading fool. :) I just finished a book that was quite entertaining - 24-karat kids by Judy Goldstein and Sebastian Stuart - really fun read, about a new pediatrician who gets a job on the upper east side of Manhattan.

Glad you are liking your job so far!

 
at 6:03 PM Blogger Nicole said...

I love it!! All the better to fit your gazillions of books you read in it!

Actually though if they have it in black then I think I was entertaining the thought of buying it also the other day!!! Lets start an " I Love TARGET" club!!!

Where was that book like 12 years ago when I really needed it? Damn! It is now on my list to read after I finish the one I am on!

Love you my sistah-
Happy Monday!

LOVE the (so very target) red purse!!

I think I may have to turn in my "Girly Card" as I just don't get into purses or shoes. I'll blame it on having three brothers and no sisters, k?

Disk 3 of season three... I'm jealous. I've only had time to make it through season 2. I'm sooo behind.

I would have snagged that bad in a heartbeat! (And would have been elated when I looked at the price!) Well done!
